Great Property
Eric E

This hotel is my #1 hotel in this area of San Diego. It is a great location on a former golf course. The staff is friendly and the location has a resort feel. The restaurant has a great bar with a good selection of craft beers. No extra fee for the full breakfast buffet for diamond members.

Hotel Karlan San Diego - a DoubleTree by Hilton - my stay

The hotel and staff were great. The rooms were clean, lunch and dinner really good. The pool and hot tub were very clean The location was convenient to high ways and airport. I highly recommend this location.

Quiet Property

Hotel Karlan is a quiet lovely hotel (more than Garden Inn). Pros: it’s quiet & a block from the freeway so no freeway noise; comfortable mattresses; nice decor; A/C had high/low fan setting to reduce noise; nice adult-oriented pool area w cabanas. Cons: sidewalks to rooms have stairs; $13.95/day self-park; small refrigerator had awkward access due to opposing cabinet doors; no microwave; expensive bar drinks; didn’t offer me Honors wifi w my Honors card; had to ask for towel replacement when maid took my dirty towels.
