    Fee on top of fee
    The resort fee is pretty excessive. The air conditioning in our room was so loud and made it hard to sleep, but was necessary since it was so warm. As others have noted, there are lots of fees added to any drinks or things purchased. Just be aware before you get the bill.

    Great Hotel!
    I really like this hotel. It is quiet, clean, and the staff are always super nice and helpful. Every time I come to San Diego I try to stay at this hotel. The only dislike is that there is not a lot of stuff to do around the hotel that is walkable. Most of the restaurants and bars in the area have to be driven to.

    Exceptional 10.0
    The two criticisms I have is the front desk takes too long and the room could have been cleaned and better maintained. Otherwise the property is special and the restaurant reasonable and good with an amazing view. I’d highly recommend the place!
