Hotel needs updating but overall it was pretty good. Shuttle service seemed like a good deal at 10 bucks, but it was quite late so they ended up putting me in a cab instead. That was nice of them. I had corner room by the street which did get a little noisy at times.

Our initial impression of the hotel was poor. Our room seemed dark and dingy. We had a ground floor room opening onto the 'garden'. In fact it was on the side very close to the main path through the hotel. As such it should have tracks for sheer, net type curtains for a little bit more privacy during the day. There wasn't even a track for them to be fitted. We had booked a room for a kitchen and this was ok but the range of utensils was poor, we didn't even have a sharp knife until we asked. Having said that, in the end we were actually very comfortable. Staff were friendly. The location of the hotel was good with a beach very close by and there was adequate parking. This is potentially a great site but the hotel really needs a makeover.

The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and well made and the interior of the room and bathroom are interesting (it was clean clean clean, there is soap and shampoo on the shower wall which was a welcomed detail.), sort of trendy modern design. The A/C unit is on the small side and took a bit to cool but nothing major, it worked like a charm the whole night, not too noisy (just a bit but not too much). There's a TV with a cable box and a lot of channels.
I asked for an Iron and a board and they accommodated without a problem, the staff is very helpful. It's a small hotel with a few rooms but there is plenty of parking for all of them and because it is on a corner lot it helps a lot with maneuvering when it's full.
They ask for a $50 USD deposit for incidentals so there's that to know.

This hotel came to the rescue when our previously arranged accommodations fell through at the last minute. The room was comfortable and the bed was nice to fall into after a long day exploring the San Diego area. From the outside the hotel does seem a bit shady but there were no incidents and I never felt in danger at any point of the stay.

We travel to SD several times a year and this is the first time we have stayed on Shelter Island. What a pleasant surprise! We dislike the hustle and bustle of SD in general and SI, specifically Kona Kai Resort, was a reprieve from all of that! Gorgeous views of the downtown area and the harbor plus the marina. We got an upgrade to a Marina king which I would recommend for the nice view of the beach and the marina. The bar and pool areas were exceptional and the staff was very accommodating to us. The room was great and the AC worked well but what was best was sleeping with the french door open and letting in the cool sea breeze at night! We will surely return here!
Room Tip: Marina views are the best

During warm weather, crowds pack the waters off Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, two of the most popular stretches of San Diego sand. These laidback locales are known to host the occasional farmer’s market or arts festival. Mission Boulevard connects both beaches and leads north to La Jolla.
