This hotel is definitely you get what you pay for. The room was decent and mostly clean, but the sheets and blankets were stained. They only have 1 ice machine which is located in the back corner on the second floor. We were looking for just a place to crash that was safe and defiantly got that! A strip club is across the street, however we never saw anything except a valet guy running around so don't worry about that. They do not have breakfast but they have wifi that's pretty good and free. This hotels location is incredible! Many good places to eat within a mile including an Ihop next door and a Target down the road. You are about 10 min from the beach and 15 from the boardwalk.

Excellent location if you plan to spend a significant time on the beach. The bayside beach is a nice retreat with clean groomed sand. Chairs and umbrellas are placed daily and collected in the evening. Nice selection of available activities - bike rentals, paddle boards, sailboats, etc. The pool is also a nice option, particularly for young children. Mission Beach is only a few blocks away for a day taking in the wind and surf. Room accomodations are decent for the price. The bathroom was a bit dated and on the small side for a resort, though the small kitchenette was a welcome bonus in our room. A few minor issues include the vending machines not operating properly, and one of the two tower elevators was out of service for over a day. Food at the restaurant was overall good though typically pricey. There are many better food options on Mission Blvd if you are willing to walk and explore. Parking costs are extra, which I did not know prior to arrival (though may have overlooked when booking). The luau was ok though the best seating was reserved for several business groups at the hotel. The steamboat ride was a disappointment for our family, though may be fun for those in the late night party crowd. Would definitely consider booking the Catamaran next time around.

There is no AC in the room, so on warm days your door is open to the ocean breezes.
Rooms are smallish, but you are really just sleeping in there.
Area eateries are pricey, so be sure to bring extra bank.

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.
