We stayed a week here on a RCI exchange. We are Hilton owners. The first night we arrived late and discovered that our room had a heavy odor like paint or epoxy. I could hardly sleep. What we discovered was the room below us had the concrete sealed that same day. They are undergoing updates and restoration due to damage...

I was contacted three times by the parent company to confirm my reservation. Each time I asked to be put into a ocean view 2 bedroom unit. I had booked a two bedroom unit. I was told that that should not be a problem. Well, after traveling across the country, I was told there was only 1 bedroom units with...

Excellent location: steps down to beach, lots of really excellent restaurants within a few blocks. Not too fancy, just relaxed and set up for all ages to kick back on beach vacation. The property is older but they've worked to keep it up reasonably well. You can be comfortable without worrying your kids are going to ruin something. The staff...

The staff was terrific. Very friendly. Very helpful. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo that was clean and had a nice view of the pool & grounds. We also had a nice ocean view from our patio. Since there were 3 of us we asked for a roll-away bed. The bed was not the fold up kind but rolled...

Pro- Downtown area, lots of restaurants. Also, close to beach, gate outside of resort. Cons:Very noisy on the 1st floor. Hear people walking upstairs. Activity was cancelled because minimum of 20 was not on signup sheet.

The condo we stayed in had an excellent view of the ocean and inner courtyard of the Inn. From the moment we arrive, we park our car and don't get in it until we are ready to go home. The walking distance to the beach and village is so accessible. It is always a pleasure staying at this resort.

I had a very bad experience with this property. We stayed for four nights with two rooms. We had originally booked three nights and needed to add one additional night. I informed them three weeks before our arrival we wanted to extend and they just made a second reservation for the additional night and wanted us to check out of...

Great location and amenities.....but the hotel itself is just very noisy. I'm guessing it's an older building and not very well sound insulated........so you can hear the folks in the next room breathing.....or worse.

Overall I love the property, location and the rooms are nice. Unfortunately any room that faces the street is very loud. The windows aren't insulated and since it faces HWY 101 there's traffic noise all night. It seems to be an easy fix to replace the windows on this side of the resort. I'm sure the rest of the rooms...

Great place for a family vacation, beautiful Resort ,on-site restaurants 100 steps to the beach and close to San Diego attractions. Beautiful pool area with jacuzzi that is lukewarm for children .they also have an adult Jacuzzi for adults only. Lots of family fun things to do nightly at the Resort.
