New hotel in a residential and business area that is currently under construction Lots of great restaurants, a brewery, and shopping centers within 5 mins drive The breakfast spread was the best out of any Residence Inns and compatible hotels – individually wrapped biscuit sandwiches, yogurt, pancakes – which was very convenient for packing lunches for the nearby theme parks

Love that Sesame Place is less than a 10 minutes away they also put out cookies, fruit and juices in the lobby depending on what time of the day it is customer service was also top notch as we had an issue with an upgrade request but resolved within 3 emails from the GM Miguel with the best possible outcome this will be our go-to hotel for future visits in the CV area!

Willie Abreu

The staff at this location were very friendly and helpful The general Manager, Miguel, Ro, and Alice at the front desk went the extra mile to ensure that you felt at home and have a wonderful stay Rachel and Claudia in housekeeping, did an amazing job cleaning our room and made sure we had everything well stocked in the kitchen

We just spent our honeymoon at this lovely resort From the moment we walked in, we knew we made the right choice! Friendly staff, spacious rooms with private balconies and awesome views! Underground parking was great! Property kept really clean! The Sea Spa offered a couples massage and it was also top notch! The Cays Lounge offered great service (even had Heineken 00) and live music was definitely a plus! We will definitely be back!

Mia Lee

Major props to Alex at the front desk for an amazing welcome and check-in experience He was so helpful and cheery! The room had an amazing view, and we spent a lot of time on the balcony looking at the great sea view The cleaning crew is very wonderful and warm, attentive at their job too

The stay itself exceeded our expectations Also enjoyed interacting with the porters/valets at the main entrance of the hotels, they give good directions! Our only complaint would be the expensive self-parking fee Overall, amazing stay!

Marta Borowska

Gorgeous resort on the water in San Diego Beautiful place to get married The waterfront rooms have lovely views and are very spacious

Spent 6 nights at this golf resort It is a great place for a quiet retreat even for non golfers There were a couple of days during our stay when they hosted tournaments and it still remained fairly quiet

The room was very nice and had one of the biggest bathrooms in a hotel The room had a proper desk which helped on the couple of days when I did have to work There was a fridge and coffee maker but no microwave The fitness center was decent There were two pools outside One of them was rarely used There was an on site restaurant which we frequented for breakfast The resort is within a ten minute drive from the casino They offer a shuttle It is about ten minutes minimum to drive into town if you want to check out other places to eat Overall it was a great stay

Michelle Broyhill

Not only can you play golf at one of San Diego’s top rated golf courses you can stay in a fabulous room that has all the comforts of home and then in the evening for a spectacular night you can head over to the Sycuan casino and catch a concert or have an amazing dinner in one of the spectacular restaurants! Or dine in your room! I’m always impressed by the friendly staff and ever accommodating management If you are looking for something to please the whole family and your love of golf in San Diego this is where it’s at

Jennifer Nix

They left our trash in the room for three days Did not replenish cups When asked for room service they just left the towels inside the door

It’s $100 A day deposit, not your entire stay Very poor hospitality There is no parking for guests by the restaurant When we wanted lunch there was a tournament and the manager said go back to your room Take a golf cart We are fully dressed for a wedding rehearsal day Hot day I told him we were at the farthest end on the property The golf worker would have hit our car as we were slowly backing up They drive too fast Don’t want to risk a bad driver!! Very very poor maid service!!!! 2nd worst hotel experience in my life don’t stay there Our neighbors said they had to clean the filters in the room The day we insisted on cleaning our room after 3 days of trash the maid had the tv on and changed our air temp to 60 degrees Room was cold Terrible place It would be better to drive in from somewhere like the Jamul casino The food manager at the restaurant could have done better We had no lunch No food was deliveredBad place Also I think my glasses by the bed went missing I’m not 100 per cent sure but I will report if one of the maids took my prescription glasses for a child In fact I will do more than report that if I return home and they are not there Jennifer

Well I don’t know where to start Came in from out of town to just get awayWe called customer service to go to the Hilton on Mission Valley by the mall and as we drove to the location given it was mission valley stadium and did not match the pictures

As we checked in the front desk told us immediately if we switched hotels we still will be charged for three days because we needed to give 24 hours Mind you the reservation was made the same day Not understanding why a simple switch could not be made as we noticed a whole homeless camp in the back parking lot Called customer or corporate line to ask if we could switch and the customer service agent said why did we choose this hotel and not what we wanted as we explained to her we are from out of town and did not know we would of been deceived After telling us she needed to hear the tape to see if we made the mistake or the employee made the mistake Agent was rude and only listened to provide a response and not one of a customer service agent When asked if we could speak to her manager she replied she doesn’t have a manager as we called the top leave of service for Hilton and she was the boss My reply everyone answers to someone and she said she was the top and will send us an investigation As we were on the phone my husband noticed Hilton deducted 202200 from his credit card This was mentioned to top level phone agent and her reply was that wasn’t her concern as she is only focusing if we made the mistake of choosing the wrong hotel We immediately called front desk to make them aware and a male staff member hung up after being confronted about that amount and we called back and a female staff member acknowledged she was aware and they are working on it and it will be refunded in 24 hours 2 days later money was not returned and we were quoted 59400 There were no light bulbs in two of the lamps and a light bulb missing on one of mini reading lamps We don’t smoke and it reeked of stale cigarettes There was dried blood on the sheets Also we had to call the front desk to ask for new wash clothes and clean sheets as no one bothered to clean our room Tomorrow is our check out 4/21/2922 just in case there is a lie to justify the stealing of 2 grand Very disappointed in how this makes the Hilton name to become tarnished

Jill Galbraith

I am giving 4 stars because the good outweighs the badNear many restaurants and stores The only disabled parking spot they have is large

Extremely helpful staff, especially midnight clerk and GM Good food at the restaurant Putting restaurant tab on hotel bill was extremely convenient Nice selection in the store Clean in the common areas and rooms Nice amenities in rooms and lobby The pool was beautiful and the workout room was excellent and very well equipped The guest safes were convenient and a lifesaverHuge homeless camp behind hotel, so tons of foot traffic through the driveway Delivery trucks block driveway throughout the day No coffee available after 10am No lunch at restaurantLots of small things broken in the rooms, but manager took the problems seriously and repairs were made promptly Minor issue with one of the elevators, and the ice machine on the 2nd floor is broken, loud and leakingWe would definitely stay again due to the staff’s commitment to our comfort, convenience, and security

This is the worst Hilton in San Diego, CA The way they took the angle of the hotel looks clean and big but once we arrived, the area is a dump, squash between Jack in the Box like this hotel was in the back alley

in which it is On the outside parking in the rear, you will see homeless encampment It is not safe and be aware that the camera inside the garage only have one view take and make sure you park once you enter the garageif you go further to where you are heading out, there is no camera in which that the camera angle only the entrance and not the other side The elevator and the hallway to any floors smell and has no air condition No complimentary breakfast in which they will charge you $2100 per person We told the front desk, we do not want serviceand they come anyway This place only looks good in the front main entrance to check in but the room are terriblepower outlet do not work, no fan vent in the restroom, and trust methey will try to charge you extra fees Parking is $1500 a night but you see other encampment RV park inside and they did not even care We only put friend family pet in the room for a min of 30 minutes and were charge $7500 for a service fee Stay away from this place and rent the one by the waterfront Other customer that slept during those days we stay said their bathroom was clogged and none of the maintenance did not care We have pay a premium during our stay in July of 2022and it was the worst stay At least have a security on duty patrolling the parking Have extra hotel luggage cart We have ask many time and they said they do not have it, in which we found out they only have 3 cart throughout the hotel in which we were lucking that one of the customer gave it to us down in the basement parking I would not come back to this placeI have seen many customer just walk across the alley to other restaurant to buy breakfast every morning It is a sad location and they need to disclose it online so everyone should be aware of booking it Be aware, check Google map 3d and you will thank me! Going back to lower end of other hotel that offer better service, complimentary, and care about customer spending these nights there

We booked a room on their website, and wrote on the comments section we were bringing a service dog to be polite While we were on our way to check in, the hotel called and let us know we were not welcome there, and that they would be canceling our room They do not allow service dogs, even though we offered proof that he is fully trained

The owner tried to explain thay they believe he is a true service dog, but that it doesnt matter, they do not allow them The owner apologized We were originally charged but they refunded it same day, before they called us

Paul W

Wonderful small hotel in the historic 3rd Avenue district of Chula Vista Many great local restaurants, bakeries and other small businesses within a short walk It seemed like when we asked our navigation system how long it would take to drive to our destination every day, it told us “19 minutes

” So it’s very convenient to get to all the sights of San DiegoThe hotel was very quiet every night, with very little traffic noise so that we were able to get a good rest The beds have just the right firmnessThis hotel is family owned and Karen, one of the owners and the person who we saw the most, is a very gracious and accommodating hostWe will recommend this hotel to all our friends We’re so happy that we found it!

Like I always say” dont judge the book by its cover” people very friendly working there Close location for everything which is a plus for us Def will rebook again but this time with the kids

Rooms were clean and organized Only negative thing about our stay is the elevator is a bit slow to go up or down and card reader had a few issues but it got resolvedThanks to Victor and his people Thank you and see you next time

Gloria Plawner

This was a great hotel for me and my family of 5 Check in was quick, service is excellent, breakfast was standard but delicious and everything we needed! The rooms are clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the abthrooms were clean I usually get creeped out by smells and textures but i had no reservations about staying here

The rooms and furnishings are slightly dated but everything is very clean and comfortable The pool area was clean and the water was heated We were all very happy

Daiyaan Epps El

The service was excellent Although the rooms are extremely dated, and the beds are super uncomfortable! I did a lot of tossing and turning throughout the night Unless you are staying for more than a week, there will be no bed service to clean the room

Luckily we only stayed one night You are able to control the air conditioning from the room with the old school window unit, which is a plus, and it gets super cold!

I stayed here for a work trip, just looking for somewhere peaceful to relax after hectic days The hacienda is really lovely and the team all very welcoming It definitely feels like you’re staying with friends (friends with a gorgeous home!)

I sat on the veranda at the pool to work in the afternoon (much better than the office!), and weekday rates even fit within my travel budget Keep in mind, this is a home It’s not a corporate hotel and has the little idiosyncrasies of such Yes, you can hear people in the hall, there’s not a restaurant so you’re on your own for food, the space is a bit dark if you show up at night- but everything comes together for a way more interesting experience than you’d get at a chain This is definitely my lodging of choice next time I’m in the area

john montgomery

First off customer service was terrible Called before arriving and the lady on the phone was very rude Wouldn’t answer any questions I had

Said she wasn’t working and couldn’t help me Then on arrival front desk lady brought us to the room and that was it Didn’t show us the keys Or say anything Besides that the outside grill in the pictures of this place was off limits for guest And we were expecting to the use that for our dinnerThe fan above our bed was hanging by the power wires Room was dirty Didn’t look like it’s been vacuumed Blood stain on the bed pillow and the side of the bed coverPool was dirty Lots of dead bugs and stuff floating around Hot tub was off and even more dirty Once we turned it on it started to smell of sulfurWouldn’t recommend this to anyone The fan alone wasn’t safe We had to just leave because it was unsafe to sleep here And weren’t offered a refund

Terry Martin

Wow… SO GLAD to have found this lovely “Homtel” (yes, I am making up words) My fiancé and I stayed there 1 night in mid-March ‘21 and found everything about it to be wonderful We truly felt we were in a friend or family members’ home

It was so quiet and calm We felt like we had the pool, hot tub, and grounds all to ourselves and they were all beautiful (which makes sense with only 7 rooms) This time we enjoyed the Merlot room and loved it’s private balcony with a view of the pool and grounds We left feeling super relaxed as we had been made to feel so welcome by Joseph and his crew that we encountered Patty, Ann and Rhonda were all equally supportive, kind and attentive in a way that just makes you want to go back again Within 2 weeks we had dreamed up a reason to come back for a couple more days of soaking up the hospitality, serenity, and peace in the quiet area of Spring Valley We are thrilled to be staying in the Champagne room starting May 6th Do yourself a favor book it now, if you can, and add yourself the list of fans!!

My family of four and I were pleased with our stay here, located right by Mainstreet Walking around and finding a great place to eat and shop nearby was excellent The police station is the building’s neighbor, so it felt secure to walk at night

The staff is amicable! The pool was always at a warm temperature, and we enjoyed that while out on a night swim Beautiful Patio next to the pool as well

Natalia Jeanie

Love this place The staff are always extremely polite, courteous and more than helpful I wish the house keeping staff spoke a lock of English bc it’s really frustrating when they’re the only ones available and they have absolutely no idea what it is that you’re asking for or needing

The communication barrier is a huge road block and very unfortunate other than that very clean, great breakfast and free parking!

This Hampton Inn is located in a very interesting area that is kind of remote and surrounded by office buildings that are mainly medical It appears to be newly decorated and well-kept They allowed us to check in a little early which was nice

The pool and jacuzzi in the back are clean however not that warm The employees were all professional and kind We did have an issue with our heater in our room After we contacted the front desk the issue was resolved They do have a nice area where they sell a lot of different snacks and beer I believe they provide a morning breakfast although we didn’t use it Overall a clean well-kept place I will say that all of the sanitizing stations were empty so there was no hand sanitizer I’d recommend this hotel and I would stay there again

Stephene Ortega

This hotel and it’s employees are the most kind, considerate , polite team I’ve ever met I’m a health care worker that works night shift I need to sleep days, holiday in wants me to pay for 2 nights to sleep there one day

That’s $252 +tax Hampton inn gave me a day rate and didn’t charge me 2 nights!! They are very accommodating I’ll never go anywhere else!

steve baylie

Staff was nice,, upon check-in, get 2 bottles of water The rooms are clean and eco friendly with 2 mode flush options Big plus is the; we’ll help you with those items you forgot to pack like a toothbrush/paste/shaver

Nice large TV and modern, new rooms, comfortable beds and functional alarm for us business travelers Head down for breakfast in the morning dished out by staff Ask for a tray to bring it back to your room if your overly cautious like myself Avoid the toll highway on the way to the hotel

My stay was amazing! It was quiet, breakfast was delicious! Every single staff from the front desk to the kitchen had amazing customer service I booked through Bookingcom however there was an issue with the dates where it didn’t show in the system correctly

The employees was able to cancel the reservation and book directly through the hotel itself resulting in a cheaper rate than booking!! Location is great if you have a car, food and shopping centers are about a mile away

Steph Pres

We have stayed here several times in the past and have always had a great experience Breakfast is always fresh and hot (this last stay the pancake machine was broken but we understand things happen) We would like to give a shout out to Rogelio R at the front desk

He went above and beyond to help us with a pizza delivery we had an issue with It had nothing to do with the hotel andhe could have easily looked the other way but he stepped up to help us and it was appreciated Front desk employees are always super nice and the room are always clean

William Schoettker

So, I stay at this hotel every 2 weeks like clockwork Like anywhere it has its ups and downs but it has been typically consistently great The GM there named Orchid is absolutely wonderful

Since assuming the role of GM she has made great progress in the improvement of this facility I think it would be better if her management understood improvements equal cost All owners want 5-star reviews but only wish to spend capital on a 2-star rating  I have been coming here for several years now and continue to do so because of the staff and Orchid’s leadership They may not always get it right the first time but they always make it right in the end

This hotel and property were nice and very warm and inviting feeling We’d stay again All the staff was so friendly and genuine, we loved that! The rooms were clean and our king bed was comfortable!Only cons were there is no breakfast and our floor did reek of weed the first night, which was off-putting as the lobby smelt amazing

It also was a little south of SD We thought it might be a little closer but we aren’t from there so didn’t know Not far at all just not right by it

Eric Yanagihara

Seems newer or remodeled Our double queen room was well cleaned and smelled fresh Plenty of towels

Air conditioning was relatively quiet and cooled our room quickly Be aware that the hotel is pet friendly, so you may hear the occasional bark(ing) No breakfast service, but there is a restaurant next door on the same property (no discount for hotel guests)Conveniently located to the 5 North & South on-ramps Ample parking during our visit in mid JulyBottom line, would definitely stay here again

Stu Turner

Wow! It looks newly renovated, everything is beautiful It’s very large, almost 500 rooms I’m in room 420 with a balcony- it’s a bit of a walk to get to the room but the room is spacious and spotless

I brought my pillows jic but this bed and it’s pillows were perfect so I didn’t need them The air is great, you can either set the thermostat or just turn it on There is a small gym, the pool and spa are open No continental breakfast but there are a ton of restaurants just right around the corner, one even right outside the front door The whole place smells great too This will be my regular hotel from now on

To be clear this is not a 5 star hotel It is an older well maintained hotel with good staff and clean rooms that is pet friendly It is just off the highway and coming from the highway you will need to make a u-turn to get to it

The Dennys in the parking lot is excellent For the money and being only 19 minutes from downtown SD it is a great option

Stefanie Meza

Stayed here for a month due to water damage in our home and I cannot say our stay has been anything less than exceptional!Great customer service at the front desk and pet friendly !security walks around at night so we did feel very safe when we had to take the dog out too use the restroom in the middle of the nightFree breakfast ! The breakfast is very simple so do not expect a 4 star meal but definitely perfect to grab some coffee and a small bite to go in the morning they also have waffles on the weekendNoticed a lot of tourist and families staying here along with some workers on the weekday

Perfect location if you’re a tourist on a budget !Close to freeways and some great Mexican food Definitely would recommend staying here :)A BIG thank you from the Meza family

Feedback From Real Customers


The hotel staff are amazing, friendly, accommodating, respectful, and so much moreThe room was excellent

Only weird part was the carpet was a bit dingy/old Beyond that it was nice and spaciousThe hotel game room oddly had to be reserved but it was small room so makes senseIf you need a bell-dolly for your luggage they’re is only 3 in the entire hotel Why? No idea but makes no sense for a hotel of that sizeSelf serve Breakfast is greatBbq area is greatLocation is fantastic


This is the perfect location if you want to stay close to family and friends Love waking up in the morning to work out at the gym After working out has some delicious breakfast and coffee

At night time you can go outside have a drink by the fire pit The only issue I had was a customer service issue other than that I really enjoyed my stay and definitely will be staying here again

I stayed there recently for a one night Saturday night stay and it was fantastic from beginning to end

Check In: My reservation was booked through the Hilton website The front desk attendant was so friendly she provided us 2 bottles of water at check in She explained to us the facilities and the complimentary breakfast for the next morning I received a text message later welcoming me again and to text back if I needed anything Lastly, the housekeeping supervisor assigned to our room stopped by and introduced herself to us She told us not to hesitate to reach out if we need anything AwesomeFacilities and room: We had a two queen room and the room was spotless The TVs worked well and all the furniture and decor was contemporary and appeared brand new The bathroom was spacious, clean and had strong water pressure and no shortage of hot water This is very important to me lolMiscellaneous: The complimentary had some hot dishes of eggs, breakfast meats and plenty of bagels, pastries, fruits, juice etc They had a staff of 3 attending to everyone and they did great Don’t forget to tip! The lobby was spacious and the business area section had plenty of table space if you need go spread out and get some work done There was no charge for parking which we totally appreciated as wellNext time I’m in Chula Vista visiting my buddy and his fam, I will definitely stay at Homewood Suites again if need be Safe Travels all!

My wife and I have stayed at the Ayres Chula Vista on two different occasions and both were perfect! You can’t get a better location than this, so much to do around this hotel, almost feels like a movie set how clean it is!Rooms are a great size and always perfectly clean Air conditioning worked great and we got a great night sleep on the comfortable bed In Room TV is a good size with plenty of channels

My wife and I love the patio bar, drinks were great price and bartender made our drinks just how we like themThe complimentary breakfast is my favorite part, it’s on par with any resturant you’d go to for breakfast! The food is delicious and my wife and I started every day full and happy because of it!From the front desk to the kitchen staff to the housekeeping, all staff provided excellent service! We will definitely be coming back to Ayres Chula Vista and highly recommend it!

My husband’s and mines stay was amazing! The beds were super comfortable and the room was exceptionally clean There are so many stores and eateries within walking distance and there was a dog park just down the road that was an easy walk We brought along our 90lbs Alaskan Malamute/German Shepperd mix and the room they put us in was huge and spacious enough for two adults, our extra large dog, luggage, and her bed

The staff at the front were so kind and helpful We forgot our dog bowls at home and they were gracious enough for find us two bowls that we could use We can’t thank the staff enough for providing those for us! The grounds and building are beautiful and very well maintained An additional plus is their Tesla destination chargers so that we could charge our car while we slept All in all, we had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!

Stayed here since the place wasn’t that far from the water parkLocation – This area is a newer modern area with a lot of shopping and restaurants near byStaff – Everything was great until I decided to grab a drink at the pool bar and the bartender didn’t make that good of a old fashioned and seem bothered I caught him a few minutes before closing

Parking – Decent size lot but hard to find parking right in frontRooms – Clean, modern, good size and overall very satisfiedGrounds – Chill outside patio with pool bar, lounging area and a ok poolComplimentary Breakfast – Very Very Basic with limited optionsOverall place wasn’t bad and would consider staying here again and would recommend itGym – Has to be one of the better gyms I have experienced with a good size, newer machines, amazing views, and cleanPricing – Not too bad for what they have to offer

I travel frequently and have come to really appreciate customer service wherever I stay It makes a difference how the front desk staff receives their guests because first impressions matter and sets the tone Portia checked me in, thanked me for being a Platinum member and was very friendly

She told me about the hotel and for me to let her know if I need any assistanceThe hotel is clean and modern The room was well appointed and looks like the photos on the website The bed and pillows were very comfortable The only issue I had with the room are the thin walls which became apparent late at night or 3am in the morning I was in room 420 and I could hear loud footsteps from the unit above, kids running in the hall and the neighbor’s door opening & slamming shut Random noise isn’t a deal breaker for me because the pros outweigh this but it might be a concern for those who need quietAlthough the breakfast options were basic and not particularly delicious, I appreciate that bacon was offered

Jorge Garza

excellent location! great staff! I was not bothered by noises from the highway Breakfast is ok for being complimentary The rooms were very nice and clean

The bathroom has no lock which may be an inconvenience for some families But overall I am very satisfied with my stay of 5 nights I will stay here again next time without any second thoughts

Ryan Poley

Great location and friendly customer service!The room was gorgeous and the bathroom was split: shower and sink in one; toilet and sink in another Very convenient! Microwave, mini fridge, and comfortable couch was also great features We didn’t get a chance to try the pool but it looked great! No jacuzzi though – but the pool is heated

I just bought a brand new EV and t they have four EV chargers in front of their building They do not manage these stations (ChargePoint does) As of this weekend, I could charge for the first four hours for free! Then it switches to paid charging I took advantage of this by charging for a few hours at night before going to bed 👍The breakfast food was great too!The bed was very firm but the pillows were super soft We will definitely consider staying here again for another trip!

Feedback From Real Customers


Beautiful lobby, great theme, and presumably very fun parties Unfortunately the rooms (at least the one we stayed in) are at most adequate Scant hot water in the showers, no soundproofing (which is especially bad when the rooms overlook common spaces and there are parties held), and when we arrived the toilet was clogged

The staff were immensely nice, but we also had to ask three times to get someone to come in with a plunger Overall, it was a cheap enough option and it wasn’t unsafe at all but it also wasn’t an ideal room to stay in

Katie Spencer

Unfortunately the other reviews claiming the rooms do not match what is portrayed on their website is accurate (at least for our short stay) the hotel lobby and pool area are very cute and the staff is incredible but once you leave the retro lobby it starts to go downhill quick The hallways have stains on their walls and carpet The two rooms we saw were decorated with beige stained walls, stained and smelly brown carpet and old sticky furniture

the walls are paper thin, the bathrooms hadn’t been cleaned and the rooms themselves had never been dusted The frustration is the price point of this hotel is way too high for the quality of the rooms My guess is the rooms by the pools are nicer The hotel was very helpful and nice enough to confirm a full refund for our three night stay The two stars is solely based on how nice the staff is and communication was seamless

Beth B

Definitely a BIG NO The rooms are dirty and in need of a great deal of maintenance Walls are dirty, shower as well

The drapes on the window were ripped The art on the wall, frames were damaged The towels need to be gathered up and thrown away The mattress was old and wore out I made the mistake of walking barefoot in the room once, the bottom of my feet were completely black I tried to use the pool, the tiles were slimy Apparently they charge $20 a day for the public to use the pool So at any given time there are a ton of loud people and kids in the pool Definitely not as described when you book it I would have rather spent more money to have an enjoyable stay anywhere else I made the mistake of booking this place based on the description and should have done my homework and read the reviews
