Probably my favorite Worldmark location in San Diego. First of all, great location in the city, as it's a short walk to Balboa Park. This makes for easy access to downtown, Old Town, Gas Lamp, Little Italy. And, the accommodations are top notch. Tastefully decorated with a European late twenties style, it's awesome. Very cool, modern furniture - elegant and...

As a proud WorldMark Timeshare owner, this location has great access to Balboa park. Also has access to the light rail which gives you unlimited access to all areas of San Diego. I was in town for a convention, and had great walking and transit access to all areas of the city.

The Worldmark Balboa Park is located in a good area... walking distance to the bus that takes you to the zoo and Balboa Park. You can also take a bus to the airport or the pier. Shopping is also walking distance. The rooms and hotel are old, but clean.

We spent two nights here in January 2016. The one bedroom apartment was adequate and comfortable. It is a good location--a healthy walk to the Gaslamp District for dining and near bus and trolley routes. The bus to Balboa Park was only half a block away. The roof top area was a wonderful spot to spend a late afternoon before...

My wife and I were given a week's stay at the hotel in San Diego. We helped her during a trying time during and after the death of her husband. We chose San Diego as a site, and she chose the hotel. Not knowing what to expect, we flew in and went right to the hotel. We arrived and discovered...

We enjoyed our stay at this property, with my family which included one active 3 year old. The apartments themselves, although not the biggest, are well appointed and fully equipped with a full kitchen. A true asset travelling with children. Even though small, we were never cramped in our apartment. The BBQ picnic space on the roof was a very...

Husband surprised me with a getaway staycation for my bday weekend. We are owners but have never stayed at this property. The property was very nice. Its located in a historic building downtown. The lobby was nice and the room was very nice. Bed was comfy. We went up to the roof and there is actually a lounging area up...

We exchanged in with RCI for a week. Location is perfect. Easy access to Balboa park, public transportation or central for walking adventures. Our unit was very clean, comfortable and enjoyable. The highlight was the little used roof top deck. Morning coffee, late night wine & cheese watching the city lights, we spent a lot of time on the roof...

Great location. Staff was very helpful with directions to anywhere we wanted to go. The roof top venue was fun. Guests came together, cooked meals and shared stories of their experiences. Parking was challenging at first, but we found overnight parking nearby.

This was our first trip to San Diego. I was a little nervous to stay at this property but I have to say I was happy we did. (I rather spend my money on dining out and things to do around San Diego so this exchange and week price was well worth it.) The location is minutes away from downtown...
