A little out of the City - but a very nice place to stay - our room overlooking the Marina made for a nice ambiance - the facilities were well appointed - and we really enjoyed the restaurant, food was great and the friendly helpful staff were awesome - the area had some nice places to eat as well ...only odd thing, paying for car parking on site when it was definitely off season - oh well

Lovely hotel. Great Location

Pros: Staff and the room was well presented and clean.
Cons: Just the mattress on the fold out.
Location: we made use of the free bikes and went riding one afternoon. Lovely.
Clean and well presented room. requested a view as this was our first US trip and the hotel accommodated. We looked directly over Coronado Island. Lovely. Great self contained kitchen. When room service made up the room they actually setup my daughters bed with her 'lamby' propped up on the pillow. Nice personal touch. Showed in my opinion that we really were guests. Only downside was the sofa bed fold out was an old mattress and not very comfortable.

Overseas Holiday

Pros: Quiet location, efficient service and friendly staff, plus pleasant views.
Cons: Nothing to mention
Location: Walking along the walk way across the road. A couple of pools at the hotel to use, tennis court, plus eateries within walking distance away.
Quick check in, friendly staff, very clean facilities. Not too close to the city but easy enough accessible with car, a bus available not too far away (by foot about 20 mins or so).
