Hotel staff was friendly and responsive. Food from the restaurant was good, but the breakfast buffet was "average".

"Smelled moldy & needed a complete refurb"
I checked in and immediately asked to be switched to a room that wasn't so musty and moldy smelling. The front desk person was very helpful and accommodating, the new room was a little better but still not fresh at all. The sheets were a starched and crunchy, but otherwise the bed was OK. The showerhead was at about 5 1/2 feet, so anyone taller than about 5'3" would find it a bit uncomfortable. I'm 6'1.

Stayed at the hotel to attend a two day conference. My room was great, nice desk to work at, nice bed, everything clean, great lighting with obvious on/off switches, plenty of electrical outlets so you could use computer at desk, in bed, in easy chair. Great to have microwave and refrigerator. Just like home, blow dryer, magnifying mirror, ironing board. Conference room was either too hot or too cold though.

"RUN, DO NOT WALK!"
We checked in at the hotel and were given keys to our rooms. Opening the door to each of our rooms, we were blasted with the smell of mildew. Awful! The carpet was damp, there was hair in the bathtub in my sons room. The hotel is well past prime, and truly needs to have a major update (consider tearing it down and starting anew). We each changed rooms. The air conditioning did not work in the 2nd room I was given. It was about 90 degrees in San Diego, so A/C was essential. The smell was better, but the dingy bedding, rug, etc, was not. I was given a new room key by a surly staff member, I complained to the manager and was offered a 3rd room. My son and his girlfriend were quietly doing research on hotels in the area. We made a call to the Hampton Inn across the street and were able to spend the night there without incident. This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Disgusting and poorly managed. Hence my review title - Run, Do Not Walk! AKA - Just say no! Nasty, nasty place. Check out some of the reviews on Yelp and you'll see even more horrific stories than ours.

"Bad breakfast"
The hotel was good the room wa clean. The location was very nice. 10 minutes to the see world and the zoo. The breakfast was the worst thing I ve ever has about this hotel. There was eggs but not welldone. I thinks there was a wedding going on at the hotel. So the buffet was really small with a many people. So I stand 20 minutes at the line. The quality is food wasn't worth what u paid extra to get free breakfast. I talked with the restaurant manager to get some good dishes. He didn't do anything. Then I went to front disk. They didn't do anything either. So I talked with Hotels.com costumer service and they refund the breakfast money. Iam thankful to them.

"Not Crown Plaza Standards"
As a frequent traveler I have stayed in at least 20 Crown Plaza's and they were all very nice. This location however is nothing of the sort. First I was given a "standard" room which was dark, damp and smelled horrible. It had not been renovated for at least 20 years. I was upgraded to a "tower" room which was not any better other than the damp musty smell was not in this room. I could have received the same accommodations at Motel 6 and saved $600. I like Crown Plaza's but this one is a dump and was a waste of my hard earned money.

"Miserable Experience!"
We've stayed at a lot of hotels in San Diego and this was by far the worst. It was so noisy that it made it hard to sleep. It sounded like people were slamming doors all night long. Beds and sheets were extremely uncomfortable. I called the front desk and asked if we could be moved to another room and they said they couldn't move us. They also said that they couldn't compensate us because we booked the room with Hotels.com. This hotel was way over priced and is in need of updates. I would never stay here again or recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Old and smelled of stale cigarette smoke."
As soon as we entered our first trim the smoke smell was so bad we asked to be moved. The second room was OK but within a few guys smoke again smelled in our room. While they may claim no smoking is permitted the fact is the smell rolls through the building. The room was ok but the carpet was just plain worn out with holes and edges frayed. The bed was clearly old and worn out. For the price you should go somewhere nice. Save you money and stay at the Motel 6 next door it could not be worst.

We had an amazing time in San Diego. We visited old town. Went to an air show in El Cajon. Spent time in our hotel room. Staff was great at check in. Pool area was awesome. Overall experience was great. Down side is that this hotel requires you to pay a $12 fee to park in their parking lot.

"Location and comfort"
I've visited San Diego for 30 years, but this was my first time at the Crowne Plaza. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quietness of the hotel at such a busy location. We had an upper room facing the palm trees and the golf course. Great view. The kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed the Sunday buffet too. And the fact that it's a Tiki decor hotel was a bonus for us. Honestly, this was nicer than some of the tourist hotels I've stayed at when visiting Oahu and Maui.

"Thank you!"
My boyfriend and I booked with Crowne Plaza based on reviews we had read. We were not disappointed! When we first checked in, Tish was VERY friendly and comped our parking, which was unexpected. We walked into our room and was greeted with a nice, comfy looking room. Every time we walked through the lobby, someone in the staff would say hello or smile at us. We couldn't be more happy with our stay and will definitely be back. Thank you Crowne Royal staff for making my boyfriend and I's stay for his birthday a happy one!

"First time staying and won't return"
It was my friends first time to Cali and we stayed at the crown plaza expecting a fabulous stay based on the pictures. Contrary to our belief, we visited the same night they were hosting an r and b convention. It smelled like weed so bad we had to sleep with the patio door open, woke up with headaches the next day, there was brown stuff dripping from the wall. The shower head didnot work well. It was beautiful hotel with friendly staff but a very uncomfortable stay.

"Very noisy."
Stayed for 2 nights over the weekend. The grounds are beautifully kept but the hotel is on the older side. Needs a little updating. The room was spacious & clean. The issue was that the room walls are apparently very thin because I could hear every noise from my neighbors rooms. The bathroom flushing, the door slamming super loud at all hours, and their conversations. Needless to say both nights were very restless due to the noise. I complained but got no resolution. I had asked the clerk at checkin if I could get a higher floor because I really needed to have a restful sleep, but he stated he was unable to accommodate me. I travel to San Diego quite often, but I don't think I'll stay here again.

"Would stay somewhere else next time."
Housekeeping staff did not knock prior to entering room. Expected them to come back later in the day while we were out. When we returned after being gone for seven hours the room had never been serviced, very irritating. Restaurant service was mediocre. Walls are thin and could clearly hear coversations as people walked by the room. The landscaping was nice.

The hotel is nice. I've stayed here a few times. The rooms and bathrooms are large so that's always nice. Parking is a nightmare. When I would come back in the evenings I couldn't find a place to park. Especially being that I was a woman walking alone it wasn't fun. Restaurant is very good. Coffee bar is expensive.

"Just OK"
Grounds very attractive, pool nice. Restaurant good. Tiny room, very very clean, otherwise uninteresting. Plumbing in the sink is backwards (hot on the right). I was amused that the word "firm" appeared on the pillow cases, yet the pillows were far too soft. The rod in the closet was at half height, a storage shelf just above it. A lady with long dresses or a clergyman with robes would be really annoyed. In short, the high price is for great grounds, upkeep, and staff, surely not the room.

"has changed"
we were in room 806 on the members club floor. Room was very disappointing , had to kill a huge spider crawling on my bed that probably came from the cobwebbed covered balcony. The closest was so close to the bed the door would only open partway and had to hang our suits on the shower rod because the rod in the closet was so low they dragged on the floor.There was also a half full coffee cup in the dirty microwave. We've often stayed at this hotel when we come to San Diego and usually have a decent experience but will be rethinking our accommodations in the future.
