The Horton Grand Hotel, San Diego
Wonderful atmosphere!
Great ambience and service. Room was quaint and filled with beautiful classic furnishings. The architecture was detailed throughout the building. Loved the view from the balcony.

Disappointing Room
The service of the staff was impeccable. Room 347. One of the brackets in the sofa sleeper was broken, and the mattress so thin you could feel the springs on your body, which was very uncomfortable; in fact, we didn’t even open it the next two nights, my husband just slept on it closed, and I went to the bedroom and slept with my Mom. There was also a rip on the sofa cushion. For the price we paid, accommodations should be better maintained. We booked a balcony room with a garden view, however, our balcony faced a dull building that had a prior mural that had been removed. The location was excellent, however, due to the proximity of many other hotels, I would never stay here again.

Memorable 3-day stay at The Horton Grand Hotel
The hotel is pretty and quaint. The room was just spacious enough for me and my daughter. The bed was extremely comfortable, as were the linens. Room temp was good and bathroom was nice and clean, with good water pressure in the shower. The refrigerator came in handy, and the flat screen tv was great. Most of the employees were friendly, courteous and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience staying at The Horton Grand!

Very Good8.0
Great area and spacious room for friend vacation
Super huge hotel room in a really great area for spending time with friends. Enjoyed atmosphere downstairs at hotel bar & restaurant. The room furniture and carpet could be updated since it showed wear and minor stains. The cleanliness of certain areas of the room was just okay. Overall great room and area for the price.
