You definitely need to stay here and I will write why next:As soon as you get there and go through the doors you will be found with an amazing staircase that is really well decorated, all the walls are full of posters It makes you feel goodAs you get closer to the register you’re received by very welcoming people, once you’re done with your check in process and get to your room is in good conditions and clean

The location is basically a 4-10 minute or less walk to clubs, restaurant, and a whole street of fun The location makes this place amazing definitely worth staying here That’s all I have go and visit it yourself and create your own experience and opinion Make it your journey

I stayed here 4 times now I remembered my first Visit here during the height of the Pandemic Despite how hard it was do anything Socially at the time of my first visit, at least it was great to interacted with the staff and some of the guests

A year later I came back things were more normal in San Diego Social wiseRooms are alright, the Beds too but the whole Hostel experience is positive Friendly staff and from my experience with Guests pretty friendly what I seen Plus, it affordable if your on Budget The Plus side of this Hostel its near all the good things to do In Downtown San Diego

graham barton

Phenomenal experience! Everyone from the staff to the guests has a warm, friendly, inviting energy Add that to the excellent location and abundance of art, and you’ve got quite the vibe This will definitely be the go-to spot for future travels

Objectively, the kitchen is set-up nicely so you don’t feel cramped even when it’s full The rooms are neat and clean, and the bathroom/shower facilities are accessible and ample The location is great for public transit on the rails or buses Perfect for going out only a few blocks from downtown Gaslamp, but able to come back to a more peaceful night sleep Just an easy, comfortable stay overall Best in San Diego

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

We stayed at this location this last week in July It was busy and also a perfect place for family Pool is great and big size too, great for kids

They have a restaurant located right next to it and market in hotel for quick snacks The hotel front desk associate Sabrina was so amazing with customer service She went out of her way when we checked in to give us info for places to order food Also places to visit with the family It’s nice to be at a spot with the family and have the easy access to great employees like her!! Thank you Sabrina and thank you Sheraton forMaking it easy !!

Laura Aduddell

Room was pretty small, bathroom was still a bit dirty Air conditioner didn’t work great Cable went out around 8pm and never came back on that I noticed before bed and wasn’t on in the morning

Hot tub out of order We used points to stay and then they were going to charge $300 for an additional night The bed was comfortable but really that’s it Breakfast was $20 a person, also had to pay for parking Definitely not worth it here

deborah Mcculley Buckley

Hotel has nice curb appeal Price was reasonable for a Sheraton We had to continually ask for enough towels for 4 people in the room(yes each of us want to bathe with our own towels) The rooms had only 2 electrical outlets that worked properly

The hairdryer gave me a nice electrical bolt(medical bill is forthcoming) and the heater did not work until they came and flipped a switch inside the heating unit to work Something about guest convience Would I stay there again? Probably, BUT I WILL DEMAND A REFUND IF THINGS ARE THIS BAD Being shocked by their items I would think would include an apology and some kind of comp

Philipp Maßmann

Definitely the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at Everything is so clean and the common areas are great to make new friends The staff is outstanding since everyone is just so helpful and friendly even if they are not on shift

Also the social events are super fun!!The rooms have a good size and the beds provide enough privacy since you have metalwalls behind and next to your head Lockers are provided in the room, which gives extra security Last but not least is the location of the hostel outstanding as well Right in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter and just a 10 min walk from the Seaport Village In conclusion, I can just highly recommend that hostel, doesn’t matter if you are just travelling and want to make new friends or if you are in the city for work

I recently stayed here for a week It was my first time staying in a hostel, and it was a great experience The facilities are just as shown in the photos and the staff is constantly cleaning

I was there with my boyfriend, but I would stay again on my own The only thing I would be uncomfortable with is the area All of downtown SD seems to be home to a large population of homeless individuals That being said, the hostel is secure and if you are looking for a central location I don’t think there is any way around the transients We rented bicycles and were able to get everywhere we needed without issue, and we were everywhere from Mission Beach to Coronado Island to Balboa Park and Barrio Logan Public transportation is also convenient I was working during half our stay and the internet was reliable with plenty of common area work stations There were also lots of small touches that were nice, such as the hair styling tools, q tips, and Sunscreen The staff was friendly and helpful and always available And seriously, they were constantly cleaning They also have rules against food and drinks in the bed areas which I appreciated knowing the chances of pests in the rooms was lower The lockers are big enough for a carry on suitcase plus 2 backpacks with some room to spare

Troy Francis

This was my 1st time trying out a hostel and all I can say is “WOW-IMPRESSED” It is in perfect location near downtown and staff is super friendly in explaining everything I was hesitant in booking initially because I thought I was going to be in large open room with bunkbeds and not be able to feel comfortable to rest after long day but total opposite

There is SINGLE rooms with a comfortable bed and closed off curtain Area was CLEAN and showers had hot water and provided towels & soap There is even LOCKERS with code so no need for locks I feel totally safe and would definitely be staying here more often when I come to SD

Walter Thomas

I LOVE this place It is truly Classy It is such a vibe for those who are friendly, urban and easy going

For those who are not, it is ok, this place has many zones to also be in your own area to relax as well as work As a professional Interior Designer, I was very impressed and pleased with the aesthetics and functionality of the entire building It has all that you need from a small kitchenette to warm and store goods and more It has a lounge to hangout and watch television, or just chill The sleeping quarters are as described and are perfect It is the BEST of hostels The bathroom is clean and nicely designed as well Across the street is a grocery store and many places to walk for a bite to eat It is a short and easy walk to all places in the heart of San Diego I highly recommend “Stay Classy” but only if you are classy If you are rough and disrespectful, stay away, there is no need to disturb this wonderful vibe of this place The staff members were all helpful and kind Accessing and checking in was also a breeze

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

San Xiong

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

Tey Chatman

The front desk staff, Bryant, was extremely helpful and friendly However, the rooms were pretty run down and not the cleanest The floors were sticky, carpet smelled of mildew in the stairwell, and there were clear wear and tear throughout the space

The rooms are pretty small but the common areas are well kept Free breakfast was also a plus though we wish it was open passed 9am Considering you’re not necessarily close to city center and you have to pay to park on top of everything else that has been noted, we felt as though this hotel was overpriced

Vinod Kashyap

Think twice before making a reservation We were given a room which was stinking worse than a public restroom After complaining to frontdesk, our room was changed which was at 85 degree inside in summer time

It looks like they do not perform basic checks on rooms before allocating to guestI will never stay in this hotel again

Excellent Marriott property and well maintained All staff very friendly and helpful Nice common areas and lots of

places to sit and relax throughout the property Pool was nice with plenty of chairs, towels and was very clean Front desk staff including the manager were extremely accommodating to me and very professional I arrived very early in the morning and didn’t expect to be able to check in, but just asked to be able to check in whenever they had something available They were so accommodating and actually found a room within the hour around 10am Awesome!! Great thing is this Marriott had the Elite lounge open and well stocked drinks and snacks Complementary breakfast daily as well Nice touch was a seltzer bar in the lounge with coffee and tea machine as well Only negative here is the rooms have hardwood floors that are not kept clean Not sure if they don’t have the correct vacuum cleaners or what, but the floors had other people’s hair all over the place It was pretty gross actually and my socks were covered with debris from the floor Walls had blood splattered on themas well Low pile rugs are a better option and easier to vacuum using the upright vacuum they use Anyway, I would still recommend this hotel, but just beware that you must wear slippers or setting on your feet at all times in the room unless you want other people’s hair on your feet!

Mariam Benjamin

We stayed here for the first time last weekend and we were very pleasantly surprised how much we loved it The rooms were clean and great The staff was super friendly! While we ate breakfast there, a couple of the staff members really stood out

We were greeted by Dee and we watched as she chatted and made sure all the guests were happy and enjoying their meals Our server was JC and he was excellent Let’s not forget the front desk either They were all super helpful Especially Anna! We will be coming back very soon!!!

Jay Akhtar

Our stay was good and could have been better for 5 starsHere are few things that can be improved:- no room service done even after requesting a day in advance It was done later after when we came back and had to call front desk multiple times- after room service was done, coffee supplies were not refilled- used glasses were not replaced- trash from the bin was not removed- no chairs in the balcony- lastly not a deal breaker but a hot tub around the pool was missing

The 2 stars are for the 2 main benefits – free breakfast every morning (and it wasn’t too bad either) which saved a ton of money for a family of 4, and the large rooms (the beds were next to each other, but you can close a sliding door and sit on the couch to watch TV) and kitchenThat being said, I’m sure I can find this at another hotel and have a much more pleasant stay The downsides:- When I took a shower the first morning, water started leaking everywhere because the shower curtain wasn’t long enough and it was blowing back into me (gross!)

I tried my best to arrange it but it simply didn’t work and there was water every where I mentioned something to the staff because I didn’t want to ruin the floors, and received a simple “we know, it’s on order”very odd response and not even a “sorry”- The pillows were”crunchy” It was quite literally the worst hotel bed/pillow I have ever slept in I went to cover the kids and was confused, as they were using a MATRESS PROTECTOR as a sheet! Huh?!- The staff was the most unfriendly I have ever seen in the service industry No smiles No asking how our stay was They looked annoyed when I would approachOverall, there are SO many choices for hotels in this area that I wish I had known this before my stay (June 2022) After this we visited 2 more hotels during our trip which were both great, making this experience look even worse

Jennifer Knudson

As Diamond members we were on the first floor by the pool, so we were woken up by kids splashing around I asked for pillows and got them the next day We found ants in our room two days before leaving

There was a stain on the couch which made the entire room feel dirty I purchased Clorox wipes to wipe everything down, but you can’t wipe a cloth couch with spots on it, I wish I would’ve taken a picture because it was the size of two basketballs We were supposed to have our room cleaned after 4 days since we were staying 7 days and I confirmed with the front desk that it would happen Monday, but it didn’t The beds were very uncomfortable, and we ended up with 11 pillows and still didn’t sleep well The pillows should’ve all been replacedflat and lumpy We ate breakfast two days which was okay but after seeing dogs walking through the food area, I didn’t want to eat anything again from the kitchen The ~$3k we paid for having a kitchen, living room, and free breakfast was not worth it!!! We have stayed exclusively at Hiltons for the past 4 years and this was the worst experience We didn’t have to pay for parking after bringing up the ants which I have a picture of I felt dirty all week and preferred to not be at the hotel The one positive is the staff was friendly I can add pictures upon request

First time staying at Homewood Suites in San Diego at hotel circle Furniture is very outdated Lots of cigarette buds outside

Landscaping needed some attention Thankfully their customer service was a great Very friendly staff Front desk was nice Housekeeping made deliveries in a timely manner Loved the recreation room which included a pool table and sitting area with a tv It’s a pet friendly hotel and that was awesome as we had our pet babies with us I enjoyed the gym early in the morning They have lots of treadmills Our room had a mini kitchen with 2 burners, average sized fridge, small sink, paper towels, tiny dish soap bottle, utensil, pots, pans, microwave, coffee pot, mini island counter, a separate room, a sofa bed, everything in this suite was very accommodating and useful Complimentary breakfast is always a plus Nearby shopping centers such as Target Also many restaurants very close by Easy access to the freeway Great location Pool was average size It was a bit to cold to swim but warm enough to read a book and tan by the pool You need your key to access certain doors on the property such as the pool, recreation room, entering the hotel from the parking garage or from the back of the hotel One thing I didn’t like is that there was one sliding door that opened and closed the restroom and the closet One sliding door for both the restroom and the closet As a result of this one door you only had access to either the restroom or the closet one at a time only not both If this sounds confusing that’s how we felt trying to access the closet or the restroom Parking garage is very small and is located beneath the hotel We became very familiar with the hotel rather quickly Hopefully this hotel is on Hilton’s list to upgrade because the location is a big plus

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!

We just moved in here in Portofino and we can say that the moving process was smooth They were the only one in the area with immediate availability and we just had to move asap Their staff in the office were all nice but not the brightest to talk to

Although our apartment has outdated kitchen appliances and laundry, they’re all working well We wanted the stainless apartment but it’s additional $250++ on monthly rent It looks nice and bright but there were many wear and tear from the previous owner Again, we had to move in asap so we really can’t complainAmenities are outstanding Great views from spa area Fitness center is not too badI will UPDATE this review after one year when we move out Just reading all the move out complains of other people online makes me nervous as HG Fenton sounds to be very notorious during the move out and charge you with normal wear and tearNot sure about the whole story between them and their tenants but still, it makes me nervousJust hoping it will not be the case for us in the future, as reviews were outdated from 2018

Absolutely love this place! The amenities are first class Pool, Hot Tub, Gym, Clubhouse with Billiard Table The grounds are always well kept and the management staff is incredible! The apartments are spacious, very well maintained and modern

The community is also very peaceful and quiet Because of my work I relocate often and have dealt with many different apartment communities The manager here (Jose) has made this experience one of the best! Very professional, informative and ready to assist in any way possible I highly recommend Portofino I will definitely lease here again if on business in the area

We recently moved into the Portofino complex and we are absolutely obsessed It feels like you are waking up in paradise every single day The landscaping around the property was the first thing that caught our eye, then we saw the amenities and unit and we were completely sold! Everyone who we have been in contact with is so friendly and Isaac in the leasing office is AMAZING! He is so prompt with getting back to you and is incredibly helpful and kind and made move in so smooth for us! We seriously can not stop raving about our new home

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

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

Awful front desk service, they don’t even greet you when you walk in the front door And no attempt to accommodate you if you have special needs Rooms are cramped and furniture is outdated

Cobwebs in the corners Toilets barely flush and tub barely drains Shower is very small and they installed the shampoo and conditioner on the wall that makes the shower even smaller! Good water pressure in the shower AC doesn’t stay on so we had to reset it every couple of hours Mini fridge was promised in the app but it’s not in the room, don’t even think there would be room for it if it was available! The couch in the corner is cute Overall, it’s a La Quinta with nice wall paper and no breakfast!! Marriott should be saddened to have their name on this place

Eric Graham

Hotel staff is nice however corporate really neglects this place Rooms need refurbishment badly Walls are paper thin

You can hear your neighbors and upstairs vacationers I’d suggest ear plugs if you are a light sleeper For over $200 a night I expected attention more As a gold member corporate won’t even let them get water from Costco to give to us “preferred travelers” Closest food places are about a 15 min walkAt over $200 a night I wouldn’t Stay here again I also think they charge separately for parkingInternet was stable and fast Easy to use Room was clean AC worked fine Nice little sitting area in king size bed room Loved the little side table It was useful for putting tablet on TV was large and I used the fridge

Update: The manager provided points but did not refund me One start back for Hilton to finally get back to me after I escalated itOverall the room is decent and staff is friendly

DO NOT BOOK “PARK AND STAY” OR YOU WILL BE RIPPED OFFHere is what happened to me I booked two rooms on the same reservation AT THE SAME TIME and I have a car So I booked 1 room with “Honor Flex” and the other with “Park and Stay” After checked out, I found out that there was parking fees charged to me The fee is supposed to be included The system has a bug that it marked both room rate as “Honor Flex” and send two emails to me with both rooms with more expensive “Park and Stay” rate but marked as “Honor Flex”The customer representative refused to resolve extra charge and insisted that it was me booking two different rates She kept saying that the reason I had two rates is because one room is for 1 person, and the other is with 2 people Does Hilton even charge extra money for 2 people? The answer is NO And the room rate with 1 person is actually higher on the receiptI understand 2020 was a tough time and you wanted to make a profit But, by charging non-agreed money, is not the right way to do business

I was so disappointed with my stay here Being that this hotel is of the Hilton brand, I had much higher expectations than what I experienced It was a feeling like when you buy a burger at McD’s, and it doesn’t look anything like the picture

The staff were fine; I can’t complain about them They were actually nice and worked hard, and the reason I’m giving this hotel a low rating is not their faultHere’s what’s wrong:1: The hotel looks not even close to as good as the photos online, especially the swimming pool and jacuzzi2: The choices for your view from outside the window are either facing the ugly I8 freeway or the graffiti mountain on the opposite side3: There were dead bees all over the window sills4: It smelled musty and old inside the room5: The bathroom didn’t even have a vent fan to blow out steam, and there was rotting wood in the bathroom as wellIf this were a 2 star hotel, or even 3 star, I would rate it a bit higher, but since this is a 4 star hotel; it’s of the Hilton, premium brand, and it’s not cheap, I was very underwhelmed with my experience This is not what I would expect from a 4 star Hilton hotel The staff were great, but the hotel itself desperately needs remodeled and cleaned up I’ve stayed at lower rated hotels that were much cleaner and nicer than this Hilton; this was a big disappointment

Katayoun Saf

Overall, the hotel and its interior design are nice BUT I expected more from Hilton hotel and for $220 per night Especially in terms of cleanlinessHowever, in terms of flexibility they do a pretty good job

We were able to check in as soon as we got to San Diego, which was about 3-4 hours earlier without any extra charges and we were also able to extend it by 2 hours without any charges Although 2 hours is the longest you extend before you get charged for a whole night Whatever the check out time is, either if you’ve extended or no, you’ll have 15 more minutes to check outWe got a 2 queen bed bedroom on the 8th floor with city view which actually looked really nice but only at night and the day view of it wasn’t as good and was just towards the highwayIn terms of cleanliness, they DID NOT do much of a job The sink was clogged, the toilet seat cover was broken would fall on me whenever I’d sit I also found a dried macaroni on the floor the first day even though we didn’t eat in the room AT ALL the whole stay and the room was kinda dustyAC was decent

A very nice timeshare to stay at The rooms are spacious and the fact it includes amenities such as an outdoor pool and grills and there’s even a balcony area for your room makes it very comfortable A full kitchen area with a sizeable table to eat or work at makes it a plus

The staff are polite and professional They are following current Covid guidelines Recommended

Derek Galenti

Staff was slow or non-existent to bring any item to the room The facility needs repairs and there is obvious settling to the structure I noticed there was sewer leaks at plumbing lines in the garage level below

Hallways and doorways on the 4 floor had major settling and felt like a cruise ship when walking through (sway and vibrations) I won’t go back for safety concerns It only got 2 stars for its proximity to locations I would feel better if a structural engineer reviewed it first

My Very First Experience with WorldMark😊I was very Pleased! The Conceirge was very Knowledgeable and helpful I believe his name was Justin 🙄 We received a few bottles of Wine which was much needed from the drive to San Diego 😀 The rooms were amazing and stocked with the essentials My Sister in Christ Diane Lawson is a very long time Member of WorldMark 😊 and I am very Grateful that she invited me there to stay and go to the Zoo

which I have never been!! Excellent Service 👍🏾🙏🏾 Blessings
