    The staff at the front desk and at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. They gave me ideas as to what to do with my trip to San Diego while I was there. They were a great team.

    You definitely want a room poolside. 110% worth the upgrade!!!

    Poolside room was given to me because I asked for a good view. Front desk attendant was extremely nice. I will definitely be staying here when I return. Only small problem was the thin walls. Awesome.

    Maids are SO loud in the morning. "Por vida!" Nice beds tho. Restrooms are not private at all. Checkers were fun tho. Walls are thin.

    A lot of fun to be had in this somewhat campy hotel from the 40s. The Johnny Weismuller designed pool is a constant party.

    Favorite hotel in San Diego!

    Fun hotel. Chic feel. Great pool... they just haven't figured out the customer service side of things..

    Keep activities towards the center of the bed to avoid tipping the mattress over.

    Hotel has lots of history and so much potential, but is in need of serious updating. However, rooms were clean, staff was nice, and pool was great.

    Don't bring your own beer, they take it, but its cool for them to have pint glasses around the pool.

    Sean-Michael McColl · June 21, 2011
  • Rick S.

    Though it is a historical place, it is far from its glamour days. Beds are saggy, no hot water and no internet in the room!

    Rick Smith · October 24, 2010

    This pool is nasty. Yeastiness and pregnancies via the unwashed hipsters that swim here.

    Ask for Christelle, the Asst. G.M., the best in the business. She will take care of you. This hotel has history. You can feel it
