The hotel is very close to the freeway. Parking is great, hotel is VERY clean, rooms are taken care of. The pool is nice and the golf course looks beautiful. If you have children this place is wonderful and able to host families as well as couples looking to get away. This hotel is not noisy at all. Extremely peaceful!

This hotel looks great online but fails to deliver. The hotel arrangement is very cumbersome and confusing (I helped more than 1 guest search for their room), rooms are located in individual buildings spread out on the hotel grounds. The buildings consist of upstairs and downstairs units. All units require you to walk up stairs from the parking area, and...

Whenever you are in San Diego and you want a centrally located hotel that surpasses expectations the Hotel Karlan should be your first choice. The staff, rooms, breakfast, lunch and dinner are superb.

Great property close to the freeway. My husband and I travelled to San Diego for a family weekend and Hotel Karlan did not disappoint. We were greeted as Hilton Honors guests, complete with warm chocolate chip cookies and a very clean room! We will stay again soon, and I will stay next time I am on business in the area.

Our room was very large, big shower. My issue is $9.95 for self parking...ask to be comped. You could park in the street a few steps...

I always have felt welcome when I arrive in the morning for breakfast. Jonel remembers me and asks me about my day. This is more than I can say about the front desk staff who seem to not recognize me even though I stayed at this hotel for most of 2016

My wife and I booked this room through Hotwire, having refused to learn our lesson – or alternatively, presume all their bookings were for leaky rooms – and did we ever strike gold with this reservation. Hotel Karlan is technically located in the Rancho Bernardo area, adjacent to Caramel Mountain in a beautiful, lush and rolling countryside which invokes in...

Great hotel, right off the freeway so it was easy to find. Kind of condo style layout which meant more walking that we were expecting to get to our room, but not bad. Very spacious room, extremely comfortable bed. Hubby and I were only there for one night, but will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.

The Hotel Karlan is a beautiful property. The rooms are large, clean and exceptional. The staff at this location is very friendly and I will be staying here on future visits to the area.
