Our stay at this hotel was the best. Rooms very clean and supplied well. The complimentary breakfasts were amazing. The variety of breakfast food was excellent, many items to choose from and all very yummy. The housekeeping and breakfast crew were all very courteous, helpful and great customer service. I recommend this hotel very highly.

Great stay

Very nice, updated remodel rooms, refrigerators, microwaves, a beautiful pool/fire wall area. Breakfast was decent with the standard continental breakfast options. $20 per night per car parking was included in GAT reservation cost so no surprise fees upon arrival. Smooth check in and out. The only semi-complaint I have is the noise level coming from the floor above. Late nights and early mornings for the family above us so sleep was disturbed late at night and as early at 6am one of the days while on vacation, so not too fun at that time of morning, but didn’t ruin our hotel experience either.

Hotel was beautiful and clean on the inside! Roberto at the front was a pleasure, so kind and made conversation over the activities we were doing. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean! Their pool and hot tube were great. There was another man working who was super attentive with the towels, he even helped me use the elevator back up after swimming when my husband accidently took both keys up. The breakfast in the morning had plenty options and the dinning area was constantly cleaned. Very beautiful hotel. Will be staying here on our next trip to San Diego :)

Perfect San Diego Hotel
Travis P. on 05/09/2021

This hotel was great for our stay. It was very close to Sea World and the beach. The room was decently clean and worked for sleeping and showering. My kids loved playing in the heated pool, it was nice and warm despite the cool temperatures. Everyone working upfront was fabulous, they were all very warm and friendly. We got to know them a bit during our stay and enjoyed our quick chats as we entered and left the hotel. The free breakfast was great as well. My 5 yo son actually said choosing what he wanted for breakfast every morning was one of his favorite parts of the trip.

Amazing space and breakfast
Alexis G. on 10/16/2019

This hotel was perfect for our family, me, my husband and 3 kids. We got the queen suite and it included 2 queen beds and a couch with a pull out bed, there were two tv’s and had more than enough space for all 5 of us. The room was clean, and the hotel is new so everything was updated and fresh. The free breakfast was great and always something I look for in a hotel, it included Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, cereal, bagels, toast, eggs, omelets, sausage, yogurt, bacon,pancakes, and biscuits and gravy. Plenty to choose from. It was centrally located to everything and sea world and San Diego zoo were both about 10 minutes away. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a vacation in San Diego.

I LOVE this hotel!! It is SO clean, modern and awesome! I love the style of the rooms, delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and the friendly and accommodating staff! They were so kind and helped our stay be even better. The pool was a little smaller but I loved the glass fire pit area next to it along with the outdoor dining area - it was so fun to relax there. I also loved how centrally located it was - everything we did (and we did a LOT) was only about 10 minutes away whichever direction we went - it was awesome! I loved this hotel so much I recommended it to one of my best friends for their honeymoon and they LOVED it too! Great hotel choice. :)

We loved our stay! All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. I also loved that booking through Get Away Today removed an 18 dollar a day parking fee that others had to pay for. Breakfast was good too, especially the cinnamon rolls. Close to Balboa park, and Sea World. We will definitely look at staying here again!

We really liked the pool. The fireplace was so nice on the cool march night we spent out there. The rooms are clean and nice. No complaints, except for the San Diego roadways! But I guess the hotel staff can't help that. We were really happy with this hotel.

We booked this property and were so happy that we did. Check-in was flawless and we appreciated that the elevators required a key pass to go anywhere. The hotel was modern, our room was clean, and the pool area was nice and enjoyed by our kids. Breakfast was very good and lived up to my expectations for HI Express. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet. We would definitely stay here anytime we are visiting San Diego. It is also a short drive to Sea World.

Great location to get to both SeaWorld and the zoo. Very modern and great atmosphere. The free breakfast is all you need to get your day off to a great start. There is a family dining cafe next door (walking distance) that also has great food and reasonable prices. Great experience!

This hotel is awesome!! It's a newer hotel with a modern feel. Our family loved the fun beach feel and summer theme. It was a reminder that we were in San Diego. We also enjoyed the free breakfast and free parking.
