Staff was friendly, breakfast was great

The parking lot, where our room was located, was on an incline and small. Bathroom a bit small.

Staff friendly, nice pool, breakfast area nice. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. There was a refridge in the room which was nice. Location was easy to find, just off the interstate.

The room was completely remodeled and the location was perfect.

The hotel hallway to my room was under construction and didn't have a room number and I wasn't told about this upon arrival.

Overall good and the price was amazing for this time of year, probably because of the construction.

Staff was very helpful. A few went out of their way to make our stay special. One lovely gentleman, when asked to take our family's picture, took us to a place where the view was even more beautiful for the background of our pictures. Beautiful setting.

The waterslides were a huge hit with my oldest grandson. My daughter and daughter-in-law loved the shops. My son enjoyed working out to the view of the mountains and golf course. The two younger grandchildren loved the pools and walks. We will be back! Two days were not enough to enjoy all the amenities.

Excellent and comfortable bedrooms. Desk and comfy chair. Dressing table, great bed and linen. Fab shower and products to use. Great views. Choice of restaurants and bars. Able to find a pool without children. Golf course looked good...just wish I played

Wine list seemed pricey to me considering my experiences elsewhere in California.

The pool is very nice and most of the staff are friendly.

They didn't answer their main telephone number, at all, in the days leading up to my arrival. They also do a poor job of warning guests that July 4 fireworks cannot be viewed from the hotel unless you are in a private reserved area. Missing much of the fireworks while exploring the hotel for a non-exclusive vantage point was, needless to say, a bummer. Housekeeping was marginal: some room service items weren't removed, shampoo/toiletries weren't replenished, and drain in shower was clogged with sand upon arrival.

A very short drive to the beach. Very clean. Large rooms. The woman at the front desk was very nice at checkin.

They treat their parking lot like a bank vault. My daughters had trouble parking their cars and visiting me. It wasn't like the Fair or the horse track was operational at the time, either. Two days in a row my coffee station wasn't cleaned or restocked.

If you need something from the hotel, just go down and get yourself. I waited 20+ minutes for a hair dryer, sweetener, batteries for the TV remote...

The room location was great, and the public areas were nice.

Toilet broke and room flooded at 6:30 am and we were on vacation but could not sleep in. I expect the room would be discounted substantially but I guess the package deal did not work. They had no other rooms available, but we also did not want to switch.

Overall I would stay there again but my trip was substantially affected by the flood. I don't feel like I was treated like another hotel would have treated me in that situation.

It was in a great location, and had nice flowers and grass surrounding the buildings.

The carpet in the residence hallway was very dirty and had a couple of dead roaches on it. The guy at the front desk also seemed overwhelmed with several tasks when I was checking in to the hotel.

The room needed to be remodeled. It showed definite wear in the carpets and furniture.

We had an unfortunate experience when the fire alarms went off at 11:00 pm. After 2 hours the problem was finally resolved. Staff should have reached out with apologies and concern. It was a bummer!

Great location. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and beach. Internet WiFi was free. Beds were very comfortable.

Self park signage and location is unclear and drop off area is small. We ended up using Valet parking at $29 per day.

We arrived on Saturday and a large wedding event was using most of the public areas. The hotel is close to the street and our specific room was somewhat noisy with traffic. Most of the rooms are away from the street.

Beautiful location close to the beach. Staff was very nice.

Extremely overrated, no value for the money.

Arrived and was informed an upgrade was available, for $100. Agreed as we were celebrating a birthday that day. Got to the room and it had not been cleaned. Returned to the lobby, waited 40 mins while they cleaned the room. Tried to order a beer at the bar but the bartender ignored me and resumed clearing a table. Returned to our room where they were kind enough to leave us a bottle of wine. Nice gesture but I'm familiar with wine and it was very cheap. After returning to the desert, I looked at the website again. The room they upgraded us to was only about a $30 difference than the one we booked. My fault there as I should have been more informed before choosing the upgrade.

Location. Perfect for walking to the beach, driving along the coast, proximity to San Diego.

The room (332) felt small, but it was okay for the minimal time we spent inside.

It was such a nice place to stay. The walkways and patios were nice too. My son loved the pools.

Nice pool and responsive management. Across from a nice little store that had good fruit and veggies. A mile or so from the beach.

Breakfast was very medicore, only fruit were whole red apples and bananas. Really poor lighting in our room. Light over sink was weak and made me look green, which made me overapply makeup for the wedding. Other family's lights were fine. And the carpet really had this slimy feel when it was wet which was most of the time as the pool was used frequently andthe weird clammy carpet feel never left.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
