Nice place. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. There was no free continental breakfast, buffet $19. Buffet is free if you have diamond hilton honors status. It was cool weather while we were there but pool is heated and we noted people were using it. Grounds are appealing. Overall, a pleasurable stay.

A friend and I booked to stay the night before the San Diego Holiday Half marathon. The race started just outside, so it was the perfect location. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The layout is a little different but, I didn't find that a problem. The room was large bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The...

Had no shampoo in the bathroom and when I picked up the phone to call the front desk, I realized the phone was completely dead.So I used my cell phone to ask if...

Compared to my stay here several years ago, the renovations have really changed the appearance and quality of stay here. If you are looking for a nice bungalow-type setting instead of the concrete box concept...you should ask for one of these rooms. There are 4 rooms to a bungalow and each is nicely furnished and private. The private mini-balcony is...
