    I wasn't impressed with this property. I was even less impressed that local craft beer was not on Happy Hour. For the price of 2 pints of Sculpin ($18) here I could get a 6 pack of the same ($15)

    Last night we ate at Vessel, the attached restaurant. Our dinner was amazing & the service was outstanding. Our server, Peter recommended the short rib dinner and it was worth every penny! Great time!

    Our room was recently renovated and was very clean. (Room 126) We were on the ground floor with a nice little patio that had a great view of the pool. We will be back.

    Happy Hour sometimes has good, local musicians! Here is a sunset view from the bar/restaurant. Very casual, relaxing atmosphere.

    AT&T Internet is too slow to use, and service is terrible, but views are amazing and food is good

    The lobby and grounds are lovely. But the rooms are very dated and dingy. The bedding was clean, but the carpets need replacement and the walls/bathroom need painting/refurbishment, desperately.

    I arrived around 1 am and I find no one help me with my luggage ... However they rectify that by giving me a good on the bay ... Nice place the kids like it ...

    Overwhelmingly disappointed. Location great, but in my opinion that didn't outweigh the shoddy room, their error in my reservation, and advertising a kids club that doesn't exist.

    Great service at the front desk. Service at the pool left a little to desired. So far so good.

    When we called to confirm earlier in the day we were told "of course!" Our room would be ready when we arrived late! Way to go

    No effort was made to call us and tell us prior to our 11pm arrival. Bad customer service and we haven't even made it past the parking lot.

    Oversold even with a conference booked here. Sent us 6 mi 10min away to a Hilton off the fwy.

    most beautiful resort along the west coast. faces the bay, and you can see san diego downtown across the water. quiet. quaint. and full of yachts. romantic also. highly recommend!

    Nice spot. Room fine, pool great. Skip the restaurant.

    Respect the sailboats.

  • AT&T

    Another great reason to stay here: AT&T Wi-Fi is one of the many amenities here for guests. It’s fast and easy to connect.

    Watch out for the security guard. He's an asshole if you're up late.

    Picturesque hotel, but some rooms could use minor renovation. Be nice to staff and they will be nice to you. You will get excellent service if you leave a small tip for housekeeper.
