Weekend getaway luxury
The staff and service is outstanding. Grounds are beautiful and well kept. The overall facility is very outdated and in need of a face-lift. But, other than a cosmetic update... this hotel is luxurious and wonderful for a weekend getaway.

Relaxed
The hotel is located on a very beautiful hillside in DelMar San Diego. The customer service from the moment you step out of the car is amazing. This one might get away was exactly what we needed to feel like we’ve been gone much longer than we were. I am definitely coming back for a longer stay.

Who could ask for anything more?
Our family went for a long weekend. Hard to imagine a better hotel, service, facilities, or food. Everything is beautiful and inviting. Our two year old loved the pool and walking around the property. We were close to the beach, the zoo, Old Town, just an amazing location.
