Great stay got upgraded to a suite for our anniversary. They need to improve poolside service and room service. The property was great and the bartenders were great.

ice to get away.
If your looking to get away and relax this is it. Ocean /bay views all around. If you want some shopping you will have to drive. Other than that great little getaway.
Victoria, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Pros outweigh cons
Nice hotel. Fantastic location and view. The so-called private balcony was not private at all, it felt like we were sitting right next to our neighbors. There was no dining table in the room only two barstools at the kitchen counter and table on balcony only had two chairs. Our family of four had to eat meals in shifts. The kitchen was not well equipped, not even a proper spoon to stir food you cook on the provided cookware but there was a spaghetti serving spoon?? All in all we will still come back as the location was amazing and view was super as long as the room is upstairs and facing the bay. We loved watching all the boats, ships and helicopters go by from our room (#203) and balcony. Nice big pool too. Do bring your own pool towels though.

Great place, great staff, very nice stay. Danny at the front desk was a great help and Teresa at Blue Wave made our few relaxing moments on a work trip enjoyable. Will stay here again!

Good family friendly hotel
Had a great time. Loved that there was a kitchen and balcony. Nice pools. It did feel outdated. Have to drive to beaches.

Great location!
We had a room that overlooked the marina. Very clean, nice little balcony, great location! Perfect for families visiting or dropping kids off at PLNU. Very close to the school, airport and restaurants.

Best kept secret!
Always amazing! The location cannot be better! Worth the room upgrade for view. Salt water pools, great onsite cafe overlooking the main pool. Endless marina and bay views! San Diego skyline? view are unrivaled. Best customer service was Daria from housekeeping! Top notch service!
Shannen, us3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
There was a party across from us that smoked the entire time. My kids had to walk up next to them the whole time. Also we called the from desk to get stuff brought up and no one came. Our kitchen only had 2 forks. I called 5 times within 6 hours and then they finally brought it up. I was a little disappointed.
