I paid $136 per night with AAA discount. I got a corner room in the Casa Del Mar building facing the water.
I would stay here for business again. The restaurant food is perfectly adequate but not fine cuisine. I did not use the pool as this hotel, at this time of the year attracts a lot of families so the pools were often children heavy.
The bed was comfortable, I sleep with earplugs in so I didn't hear much noise. During the day you can hear people outside but it wasn't too loud. I never heard anyone in the room next to mine (which is a pet peeve.) Now you are close to a naval base so occasionally a helicopter flies over or a jet and the windows do shake BUT I never once heard them at night.
I enjoyed my stay and will book in here for business again.
NOTE: The newer building if that's a must for you is the "Casa Marina" building.
Also the wifi in my room was very temperamental.
