PROS: Room was clean and decorated nicely. The lobby area, spa, restaurant, and fitness center all had very nice ambiences as well. Loved the steam room. The pool and hot tub is clean and relaxing. There's a mini beach that you can sit at and fire pits. CONS: Hotel is old and dirty from the outside. The room did not have a microwave and the fridge was not working (our food went bad). Also, the toilet flooded during our stay. We paid $25 to have a bonfire started for us, however after 35 mins. of the staff attempting to start a fire, they did not succeed. The restaurant service is slow, and the dish ware could use more care (cups smelled badly like fish and food). Lastly, We booked a couples massage but left wanting more...the masseuse felt very amateur and defiantly not worth the $300 we paid. Would probably not recommend massages. Although the spa itself was very cozy and clean.. Overall, it was an okay stay for $70 a night..oh yeah and parking fee is $18.

This Resort is the coolest, the room are new the Resort has been renovated. It sits at the end of the Island. Great for a stroll picture taking. If you like fishing this is your place bring your pole when checking in. It sits behind Point Loma Navy Base so in the morning you might hear some jets. That famous red head use to stay there the one and only Lucille Ball and a few other famous actors and ex president.

This is a nice hotel with great customer support. The rooms look right out over the water and is fantastic to see first thing in the morning. Comfy beds and a great escape.

Location was amazing if you want somewhere just to relax. 20-30mins drive into the city centre. Bed is huge! Bathroom could be slightly better and the reason I say this is because one of the towels was stained, toilet roll holder was broken and bathtub was a bit dirty but I cleaned that myself. View from room overlooking the sea is beautiful. If u want to use the Spa please book in advance as I wanted to book massages and was unable due to not many staff members. Would come here again.

We booked this hotel through Expedia. It showed there was a $50 per stay for a small pet. Come to find out the hotel charges $50 per night and we booked 4 nights. They wouldn't work with us at all even though they provide Expedia all the information for the hotel. Not only that, but we didn't find out about the difference in pet price until 2 hours past the 48 cancellation notice, so they charged us for 1 night! Even though it was their screw up! They are impossible to work with...customer service is non existent.
