Nice staycation in Old Town San Diego.

Raven W on Jan 26, 2023

Check in was easy, the women that checked me in was nice and accommodating, room was clean and modern, the room over looked the pool which was nice, beds were comfortable, in the check in area there were beverages and food available for purchase, in the morning there was free breakfast and checkout was not until 12. The only downfall was that parking was 25 dollars a night and I was not informed of this. Everything was walking distance. Food, store and it was located in old town san diego.

Unless there is no other option, I’d stay here

N231SD (Pleasanton, California) on Jan 08, 2023

The hotel is dated and shows. The physical appearance looks dated. When walking through halls, there are unique smells. Going from lobby to room is cumbersome. Found leftover linen just lying around in view near elevators. I have stayed at far better places and worth an extra few $ than staying here.

Amazing Christmas Family Vacation

441neldat (Victorville, California) on Dec 27, 2022

This hotel is absolutely AMAZING! The location is right in the heart of beautiful Old Town with beautiful views and landscapes of hills of San Diego The hotel is in walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. My husband and I stayed here a couple of times and enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to bring our family to spend Christmas. It was an amazing 3 days, we will cherish the memories forever! We woke up every morning to a delicious hot breakfast and the best hospitality! My grandchildren couldn't wait for the fresh hot popcorn every evening, they knew when it was being popped because we could smell the aroma from our room. We can't say enough about Chris and the front office staff, they ALL are courteous, professional and willing to help wherever needed. We've found our New home away from home, can't wait until our next stay!

Great location

Mogenta (Vancouver) on Nov 18, 2022

This hotel is located right at the edge of Old Town and was so conveniently located. The breakfast was great, had toast, coffee, tea, some fruit and hot items. Pool and hot bub was nice and the room was clean. The only reason I gave 4 stars was that the walls are super thin and you can hear everything in the halls and adjacent rooms.

Declining quality

Odyssey774514 on Nov 15, 2022

A disappointing five night stay at this hotel for a business trip. Previous stays here before the pandemic were excellent. Post pandemic, things have changed. Staff seem to be trying hard, but the property is in disrepair. Some rooms are not renovated and in poor condition. I was given one of the bad ones. I didn't complain because the hotel was booked, but the staff had to know this. Marriott gets lots of my business (Titanium elite member) and service to members in that loyalty program has declined.
