How to Get There
I selected this hotel when in San Diego on business for one night and noticed that just about every other hotel near the city center was ridiculously expensive; there must have been something going on in-town mid-week. I did wonder why it was far less expensive than other properties located in or near the city center, but I went with it.
Pros: The staff was great. Friendly and helpful. And I did appreciate the chocolate bars I got upon check-in with custom wrappers thanking me for being an Honors (Gold) member - lovely touch that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Location was a quick Lyft from both the airport and the location I was hitting in Little Italy.
Cons: There’s a reason it was so much less expensive than other properties - just be aware. During the long walk to my room across this sprawling resort, I was getting motel vibes. Most, if not all, rooms I passed had sliding doors that opened up to a tiny patio on the ground floor, or balcony on the second floor. Lots of people had their curtains open and you could see everything going on in their rooms. Sure enough, my room, a standard King unless I was upgraded and they didn’t mention it, had motel smell when I opened the door. Maybe from the carpet? Not sure, but the rooms themselves, or at least mine, could use some major updating.
This would have been a 3.5 (wish TA allowed half ratings), but the staff is why i rounded up. Extra points to the bartenders who handled the obnoxious conventioneers well when they were upset about the 10p last call.
We had issues with things not working in our room. Shower/bath seemed old and dingey. Toilet did not flush properly (this did not get fixed during our 5 night stay after we reported it the first day). No vent fan in bathroom, or it didn't work. Staff was friendly and helpful in general. Food in the restaurant was mediocre quality. Beer selection in the bar was lousy and the food and drinks were way overpriced. I was giving them a 2 star rating when the feedback email they sent me asked me to rate them on tripadvisor. When I did so, it wouldn't let me click on "submit" because it was only 2 stars. It would only let me click the "skip this step" button. Shame on you Hilton. So I came directly to tripadvisor and downgraded them to 1 star. I will look for other brands to stay at from now on.
My husband and I came here for a 3-day business meeting. The staff were very helpful and the food was delicious. We walked in both directions on the “boardwalk” and there were plenty of places the kids could have played if we brought them with us. The gift shop stayed open late but the coffee shop closed pretty early. We also enjoyed sitting outside on our room patio and near the restaurant. A great way to enjoy the California weather.
Room was old and not clean, freezer did not work, cigarette buts all over the balcony. One restaurant on site which was extremely overpriced. In need o major updating and renovation. Friendliness of the staff was the only positive.
I typically stay here when I have race events in the area. I was pleasantly surprised when the agent at the front desk shared that I would be in a new room! See the photos! Love it and love choices for dining as well as it is right on Mission Bay!
