I was able to book a room at the zoo hostel the day of my visit, which was very convenient. After I checked in, I was offered a home-cooked meal and the company of lots of new friends from all over the world. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I stayed in a 4 bed room that had bunk beds, a closet, and a desk. It was clean and I had the room to myself. I will say that you can hear other guests walking around outside your room as the walls are pretty thin, but I got the impression people are usually very considerate about noise late in the night. The next morning there were bagels, toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and coffee offered for breakfast. The hostel really felt like it was a big family that lived there. The bathrooms and showers were communal. And the hot water heater was out during my stay, but they were fixing it as I was leaving. When I checked out, the person working the desk gave me advice about what to do for the rest of my trip and helped me research different places around the city. Overall, a great experience!

A friend recommended The Lafayette as a nice, historic hotel that was near where he lived. Looking at the website and checking out the photos, it looked like a wonderful step back in time to the golden age of Hollywood. The reviews were decent, so we decided to book for the one night we were in town (March 5, 2020). The front looked pretty impressive and the lobby and parlor area reminded me of several vintage hotels we've stayed in. The reception staff could not have been nicer and more professional. We were assigned room 223, which was just at the top of the stairs on the second floor. The room was small by today's standards, but it was adequate for our needs. It is similar to the room sizes found in most European hotels. Once past the nice-appearing common areas on the main floor, one began to notice a number of things that, collectively, gave the impression of a tired property that was in need of some TLC throughout. Here are a few examples of what we observed: the walls in the hallway showed significant scrapes in the paint that implied they hadn't been painted in a while; the door frame was gouged and dented; the roman shade in our room was at a permanent slant, despite efforts to straighten it out; the large photo over the desk had slipped down crooked within the matte; there was a noticeable area of water damage at the bottom of the wall next to the bathtub; the tile in the bathroom looked like it needed a good scrub; the in-wall HVAC unit was incredibly loud and not very effective; and more. We decided to ask if there might be another room available that we could move to. Again, the front desk staff was very accommodating and let me look at a room in the long, low wings surrounding the pool. From the pool side, these buildings look fine, but from the other side (where you enter), the building definitely needed a refreshing. It reminded me of an old motel. I opened the door into the room and the first thing I saw was a vanity area that had a big chunk missing from the old Formica covering. This room was larger and had a nice little balcony overlooking the pool, but it again just seemed tired. It didn't make sense to move, given our other option, so I just returned the key to the desk. One might respond to this review by saying that the property is kept in its vintage style to maintain its historic vibe and recapture the era. I completely agree and hope that the owners continue to embrace this approach. (In fact, the flat screen TV affixed to the wall in our room was a jarring given the era.) However, vintage does not mean worn out and tired. Attention to the details I describe above and many others I didn't mention is basic property care. (Did no one notice a slanting roman shade and damaged picture?). It needs fresh paint throughout; tile and molding replacement; updated window coverings, linens, and lighting appropriate for the period; and more to bring the property back to its glory. I suggest that this r

We stayed in the Family Cabin and the kids (9 and 11 years old) loved it. The hotel concept is micro lodging and the rooms are small but all our beds were in lofts and were actually quite roomy. The ladders are steep and I wouldn’t recommend the lofts for young kids - too many openings to fall out of. The room is inspired by boat living and has lots of wood and unpainted surfaces. Though minimalist, it has a nice kitchenette and nice toiletries. Location is great! Close to Balboa Park and walking distance to many good restaurants. There was a little bit of street noise coming from the neighboring 7-11. The owners are very hospitable and welcoming. The little “gift” shop has beautiful items. Since the hotel just opened a couple of weeks ago, there were a few things that still needed to be addressed/perfected but I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed at this property with my children, mother-in-law and two aunts. We were in town for my father-in-law's final internment. Although this was a sad occasion, the stay was quite lovely. Rachel texted me before I even left Nebraska to check if we needed anything and to give a general introduction. We even discussed the fact that my reserved room types were not available, but they accomodated us just fine. This was excellent customer service and she didn't know at that point that we were there for a funeral. Upon arrival, she was equally friendly and helpful. Our reservation took a little effort on her part to work out as we only needed one room for one night, but my mother-in-law and aunts were staying an additional night. She made sure to make it where they didn't have to check out and then check back in, although there was a separate reservation. She also ensured the cards were coded for both nights. It was at that point I explained I appreciated her patience and helpfulness as I wanted to make things as stress-free as possible for my mother-in-law since we were there for a funeral. The hotel itself is beautiful, and I wish we had more time to enjoy the property. The lobby was inviting and evening reception was starting at our arrival. I love this added perk with a nice light dinner selection. Breakfast lacked a little variety, but was fine. The attendants at both reception and breakfast were very friendly. We had 2 two-bed suites, right next to one another. I appreciate Rachel working that out for us. The room was spacious with nice decor. The beds were comfortable, and my daughter confirmed the sleeper sofa was comfortable as well. The bathrooms were nice, but not a fan of the sliding door. My aunt got stuck in their bathroom and it took two of us to open the door. My family was excited there is a Benihana in the parking lot and it gave another food option, albeit expensive compared to the nice FREE reception at the hotel. The best part of our stay was definitely the wonderful personalities of the staff! They went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming to us. I did not encounter one person who didn't give a genuine smile and small talk. People really can make a difference in an experience at a property and I appreciate their efforts during our difficult time. Thank you!

We had a very long stay here so it definitely became our home away from home. The hotel is great especially the views and the comfy beds but what made our stay great was the staff Sammie was our first contact and was very pleasant and welcoming upon our arrival. She was always eager to help with any issues and went above and beyond to assure everything met our expectations. Lauren is also a superstar of this hotel. She made our days brighter even after being in the same hotel for 3 months. She was very professional and always followed up and assured we were taken care of. A fine example that makes this hotel a special place. Hector is another standout employee. He greeted upon return every night and made us feel special. He came to our room countless times and was there for anything we needed. He also kept the hotel nice and safe during the late night hours. Amanda also helped us many times when issues came up. She was very courteous and pleasant. She is a great asset to the team. Ruby treated us great also. She was a go to person at night and made sure we had all the necessary items for our room. She is very friendly and hardworking Theresa is the star of the housekeeping staff. She made sure we had plenty of towels and items for our room. She was always smiling and made us appreciate her hard work. Matt was another fine employee. He was very pleasant and helpful upon checkout and wished us a farewell and thanks. Other employees that were outstanding were..Alberto, Gracila, Eva, Lupita Thanks Hilton Mission Valley We spent a Birthday and 2 Holidays with you in one stay!

We stayed last night on this hotel out of convenience to take an early flight out of SAN, what a discovery! It was THE BEST sleep of our life, we were searching the pillow code and the mattress brand because it was truly like falling asleep on a cloud, I should mention that I like soft mattresses and my boyfriend is the opposite he loves firm mattresses to the point that sometimes he finds the floor comfortable :o What was amazing is that we both LOVE the bed!!! Now, let's talk about the staff, they were so helpful and friendly, we check in late at night, around 11:30...and you know how night shift staff are not normally as cheerful or happy as the day staff and understandably so since they have a harder shift...NOT IN THIS HOTEL, the night shift reception members were helpful, smiling, they look actually happy to be working there. In the morning the restaurant hostess was also super nice and helpful! From now on this will be our convenience hotel in town!

Booked this room for a family trip to San Diego. Mostly for the price, room and breakfast. We got the family suite since we had the kids (16&11) and they are too big to share a bed and it’s so expensive to get 2 rooms. The family suite had bunk beds when you enter the room. Sink,microwave and mini fridge straight back. Then the bed in a separate doorless room. It was perfect. After spending all day with kids it was nice to have that little bit of separation at the end of the day. The room was clean,bed was surprisingly comfy, hotel was quiet and ALL of the staff were polite and helpful. We took Uber every where, from the gas lamp to mission beach, it was never more than 14 dollar ride. Breakfast for the kids saves a good amount of money. Apples and bananas, eggs and sausage, make your own waffle, cereal, milk, juices, bagels, toast, pastries, ect. All Served in a large dining area. It can get busy, and when it’s closing time they mean it. Don’t try to make one more waffle. Haha The ladies who prepare the food are not servers. Don’t forget to bus your own table and pick up after your self. It’s amazing how some adults don’t get that. My only single complaint was it might have been the worst shower water pressure I ever experienced. Akeem: I’m not sure if I spelled your name right and I’m sorry for that. I want to say thank you soooooo much for getting my silver chain back to me. I realized I left it once I was at the airport and didn’t have time to go back. I called and Akeem made sure they had it in the room, he took down my information and told me how to go about getting it shipped back to me. It arrived in the mail today and I couldn’t be happier as it has sentimental value. And for that reason alone this hotel gets that 5th star. I will most definitely consider staying here again when in San Diego.

Each space at Jackwill Flats is professionally designed, and comes with a private fully equipped kitchen and in-suite laundry. You’ll love this art deco building, just steps away from the popular Greetings from San Diego mural. Spend your afternoons exploring the trendy eateries and boutiques scattered throughout North Park, one of America’s hippest neighborhoods.

Very satisfied with a stay experience. The location is just off the road from HotelCircle near the pedestrian tunnel. The hotel is clean and has a swimming pool, spa and laundry room. The breakfast is served until 11:30 in the restaurant. It is very convenient for me to take the time difference. The breakfast given is not a buffet. It is an American Breakfast package, including eggs/bread, sausage/bacon, potato cake/bread. pick one of two. When you are hungry, you have to eat two people to eat. Vegetables or fruits should be ordered. The front desk is available 24 hours a day for check in and Check Out. The room is very clean, no smell, the bedside lamp base comes with two sockets, very convenient to charge. The bath water temperature is sensitive to switching, and the temperature is well adjusted, so there is no overheating and overheating. There is a small fridge under the sink to store cold drinks and fruit, but the sound is a bit louder and it is best to turn it off when you sleep at night.

Close to the highway, there is a little noise at night but it does not affect sleep. The breakfast was very good and the variety was very good at the motel. The room has been refurbished and looks newer, the bed is comfortable, the bed is 1 meter 5, and the two sleep a little. There is a microwave in the room. Next to the shopping center, the dining is convenient, here you can eat the famous panda fast food, although the taste is average but the price is cheap, the average person can eat well for 7 dollars. It is a 12-minute drive from the Aircraft Carrier Museum. The beach is very beautiful, especially at dusk and sunset, sitting on the beach and looking out to take a great photo of the aircraft carrier and the victory kiss. 15 minutes drive from the Colorado Island Bridge, there should be time to stay on the island for a few more days, a quiet community atmosphere, it is easy to indulge.

We stayed here for one night on a quick visit to San Diego. As it’s in the Hotel Circle area, it’s clearly in a great, convenient location. Easy off and easy on to the freeway. One downside of being there is that if you get a room facing The 8, you will hear the traffic. We were upgraded to a king suite type room which provide plenty of space. The bathroom was well lit with a great shower but zero ventilation unless you kept the door open. Not that big of a deal. The room is a bit tired. Nothing ugly or unappealing but it clearly shows its age. The sofa sleeper was not comfortable at all. They usually aren’t but this was worse than normal. The king bed was fine. The breakfast in the morning was a really good hotel buffet. Plenty from which to choose and all tasted good. Each and every employee with whom we interacted were very, very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making sure all was well. That was a very nice touch. Just a reminder that there is a charge for parking and for breakfast though you should be able to find a rate that includes one or both if you choose. We would absolutely stay here again if the rate were satisfactory.

People outside in chairs and tables from the rooms, yelling, multiple noise complaints spanning two nights. Demanded come to office to talk to managers while I addressed concerns of covid. Gang activity, unsafe and security on phone not caring what is going on. I call office multiple times to alert them and was told I was lying and that they can’t do anything about the noise, even considering exceeding pounding, banging, fighting (domestic abuse people yelling help upstairs) and non stop noise. Third day I was told to leave property because I was nuisance and complained too much. This was considering a window broken on property same night as mentions above, as well as car stereo noise and the smell of meth and marijuana. Instead of listening to feedback from someone who is a multi business owner, former Loss prevention detective for corporate sears/target, former military police officer, and six sigma black belt for process improvement, over safety concerns and covid 19 concerns, I was told I would be “dragged off property” if I didn’t shut up by Yenette, then Karen the front desk manager covers and tells me nothing like this happened and I was lying. This is after proof in photos and video was taken, as well as a police report filed with San Diego police department. Called Brian operation manager to report the issue to him since the chain of command was keeping it from upper management, got voicemail 3 times and never received call back. Only after reporting to Wyndham did I receive email. Nothing else. I would definitely stay away from this hotel as there is more to concern here, Considering everything above and when they allow groups to congregate over 15-20ppl at times throughout property while covid going on. Will alert health Dept and other authorities as well.

Misson Bay / Loma Heights
Booked this place to celebrate my daughters, niece, and brothers bday. Unfortunately, the rooms that we booked, which was the bungalow garden view were not what we expected. The online adverstisement showed more luxurious and beautiful rooms. Our room was supposed to have a separate living area, and bedroom but it was the other way around. We walked into a bed in the living room with the kitchenette and a dining table. The tv was placed in the corner, in between a window and a door. There is a separate room with a pull out couch and a tv, which should’ve been in the living room.. due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were expecting a clean room, but I ended up cleaning this place up. The drapes, curtains were filthy!!!! The counters, tables were dusty!!! The coffee machine and supplies looked like it has been sitting there for ages; microwave had a lot of stains.. no rugs in the room and made it really cold, and did not feel cozy at all. When you’re on vacation and paying $600/night (bungalow garden view) the room should be at the highest standard and guests will have the highest expectations given the fact that you are paying this kind of money.. we wanted a place where we can rest up and relax.. Unfortunately, when we walked in, we wanted to leave right away- the room that we booked was supposed to have a separate living and bedroom space. But it was the other way around. The bed was in the living area along with kitchenette and dining area. There’s a separate room w a couch and a tv. It was cold and it didn’t feel welcoming.. during this Covid 19 pandemic, the rooms should be extra clean, the walls had stains and the floor is dirty.. we requested extra blankets but had holes on them. This is not what we expected at the rooms are not worth the price- Needs a lot of improvement!!!!!! U can get a $300-400/night with the same amenities plus a very nice room.. this place Maybe need to hire better housekeeping company. Paying this kind of money, our expectAtions were high and very disappointed. On top of that, we can hear people next door so we didn’t not have a good nights sleep. So far this resort have been the most disappointing as far as the room situation. We hope to see improvements on the bungalow garden view and lanai rooms in the future.. clean, cozy, and well decorated rooms.. On a good note, the resort is beautiful; good location. One of the reason why we stayed in our bungalow is because we had a nice view of the bay and steps away from the sand- that kind of made the room situation better.. There are 5 pools on property, our family enjoyed their time at the pool. We pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Our kids loved the fact that they can walk around the property, rode their scooters. There’s a rental place for bikes, etc.. and other activities on site. Fire pit for s’mores nights are also available on a first come, first serve. It was also convenient for us to be able to walk to the restaurants on property. The island market is

When you first get there I felt like I had traveled back in time to the age of the Titanic. We were met by a very helpful valet host who held the door open for us and offered to assist with our luggage. Check in was fast and pretty smooth, Daniel was quick and friendly. They give you an old school (with a modern chip) metal key. Was cool but if you dont have a key ring/chain was tricky keeping tabs of. The rooms were very nice. The bathroom is grande that's for sure with gold plated metal hardware, a large vanity and nice complimentary array of personal hygiene care. I was on the 16th floor. Great view of the city. The room had a Keurig (never used it) a small fridge and a safe which you use a personal credit card to lock and unlock. The desk was very nice and there were 2 large seats. The gym facilities were amazing to use. The pool deck was also spectacular with a 1/10 mile rubber track, a crossfit area and spin class area. The classes cost $10 for guest but are worth up. I was there for a week long conference. The hotel staff were always very friendly and quick to open a door for you. The entire hotel is beautiful. The front desk members including Daniel were helpful in giving suggestions for places to eat and directions. The hotel bar and restaurant are pretty spectacular. Only visited it once on Thursday the 13th. The bartender could have been a little friendlier for me and my friends who had a couple of cocktailmls a piece. The only drawback and this isn't anything on the hotel are the public electric street cars. From 4:30 am until 1 to 2 am they horn signal is louder then anything even 16 stories high making it difficult to sleep if you are a light sleeper such as myself. Besides that if were to visit San Diego again I would seriously consider staying at the Westgate again as well as suggesting it to others. And on my last day I had the assistance from the concierge woman in checking out. She informd me she had been there for a long time and it showed. Her knowledge of the hotel and its culture were excellent. She took a lot of pride in the hotel and was very friendly. Thank you for the accommodations.

Booked the hotel in Sept 2020, based on nostalgia from multiple past stays back over the last 10 years. Back then the hotel used to have a cool boutique vibe to it, with a happening rooftop scene, and cool amenities included in the hefty resort fee, such as fresh complementary cold brew coffee in the morning, complementary wine at happy hour in the lobby, free bike rentals, etc. While Solamar still falsely advertises those amenities on its website and still charges the hefty daily resort fee, the only complementary amenity now offered is slow Wi-Fi. I know they'll say it's probably all due to Covid, but then either stop charging the resort fee or make edits to your website, right? Other than that, the cool vibe is gone. The hotel shows its age, the staff is apathetic. Once that happens, the place becomes just another hotel with small, noisy, dirty rooms and no life whatsoever. But they still do charge that resort fee...

Check in was a breeze and I got a great ocean front, 3rd floor room!!! PERFECT! Underground parking for the rental car was nice to have!! Great view from the balcony of the ocean and boardwalk. Was great sleeping to the ocean roar at night! The cleanings ladies were outstanding and room was cleaned every early afternoon. Some good choices just down the boardwalk to the North to eat at, prices not that bad. Good place for breakfast across the street at 20/20 cafe. My favorite burger place was at Mission Burger. Woody's was good too, but always busy with a line. For a evening meal and bar, World Famous right next to the Hotel was the place to go!! Fast service at the bar!....went to MCRD for graduation, to see and laugh for old times sake....Balboa Park good Auto and Air museum...Good photo ops of aircraft landing at SAN. Ralph's Grocery a short walk to the north to get Groceries or pop for the room...Will be back next March for my 50th Graduation from Boot Camp!!! Good massage and Spa at the motel across the street to the East....A drive to Silver Strand beach is a great place for sunset photos too...

Carmel Valley
Came here for wedding anniversary, and loved the property! The grounds were very well kept, the golf course is beautiful, the trails were nice (not strenuous even though the signs say so), very pet friendly, the pools were warm and still open during covid-19 (Canon and Alex were extremely helpful), the service in general was perfect. Addison was the highlight of our stay, the meal was beautiful and delicious and happy they offered a white truffle dish. One disappointing part of our trip however was the Spa. I booked 2 massages for myself and my husband, and his was decent whereas mine was very much underwhelming to the point that I wondered if my masseuse was even licensed. I told her that my pain points were my neck and shoulders and if she could focus on that area more, and she didn't. She used no pressure and oddly focused more on my arms and feet, using just stoking strides which was weird. She also didn't tell me about the mask option because I couldn't breath with my mask on and she gave no direction with that - i ended up loosening it up a bit on my own so that I could breath. My husband later told me that his masseuse gave him direction and told him that if it was harder to breath, he can remove his mask because there was some sort of cup thing under the headrest which was fine. The massage rooms were outdoor cabanas due to covid-19 which initially sounded romantic, but in reality it was not relaxing due to a dog that was chewing on a squeaky toy half the time in a nearby hotel room (not the hotel's fault though and we love dogs, but just not ideal during a massage) and people talking loudly nearby. Since my husband got a decent massage, I chalk it up to just getting someone that wasn't good and/or didn't care to provide a good experience. Overall, it was a nice experience even during the covid-19 times. Everything was clean, sanitizer around every corner and I felt pretty safe on the property. We would definitely come back again! I would just be weary of the spa and ask for someone with more experience. They also just started putting up the Christmas decorations, and the place looks even more magical for the holidays!

Timing is everything - ours wasn't great. My Wife was due to attend a Conference from March 8th, it was cancelled at the last minute, but we travelled anyway.. Let's just say it was quiet. This enormous Hotel, has over 1,600 Bedrooms in two high-rise Towers, with support facilities. Occupancy was low when we arrived, and declined further over our 5 night stay. Unsurprisingly, some of the usual services closed down or were restricted, due to low demand. But we quite enjoyed our stay, for all the unforeseen limitations - more painful for the many staff laid-off than for us, it's fair to say. Our 25th Floor Room was comfortable & had a good view. We had a few Glasses of Wine in the (subsequently closed) "Brew 30 Bar" the first evening. The "Seaview Restaurant", for Breakfast, had good options ; Sammy, our Server on 1 morning, was excellent. We also used the 24 hour "Market/One" facility : staff attentiveness here was "mixed" (they were mainly absorbing the TV News). Front-Desk / Guest Services people were generally capable and responsive : we especially commend Jackson, and, above all, Caroline S, who could not have been more helpful with advice + some problem-solving - many thanks, Caroline, for your friendly care and attention! By the way, the Hotel was impressively conscientious in providing Hand Sanitizing facilities, with safely usable Dispensers dispersed throughout the public areas : well done! We departed with a generally favorable view of the "Manchester Grand Hyatt".
