... water and do some of their tricks. Was awesome to be that close to them. I just wish I was able to touch one the would of really made my day. At 2:30pm we headed to the Shamu show One Ocean arena to get ready for the Killer Whale show. Of course we sat in the wet and soak zone about 6 rows up. So I had my big camera out taking photos and had my towel out just to protect the camera. Which I don't need for the first 10 minutes as the water wasn't getting us but ...
... we were headed to the dolphin show but first we fit in a ride on Manta! Me and Sam went on, think I'm definitely overcoming my fears of roller coasters, and met Lauren and her mum down with the sting rays, where you can stroke and feed them! We made it to the dolphin show which again was so cool! With the dolphins, birds and people who are doing acrobatics and high diving, you don't know where to look! On the way out of the show we saw the seals and sea lions which ...
... 2 - feet in the sand at the Hotel del Coronado
We were told to visit this hotel. This place was so beautiful. Someday I hope to stay there, even for one night. We walked around the grounds and even walked on the white sand beach. We took some of my favorite pictures of San Diego among the white and red roofed buildings. Nothing too exciting happened here. It was just a nice relaxing walk around a place for us to dream about.
We left Las Vegas and headed for San Diego via Phoenix Arizona...which is in the middle of the desert. We arrived in San Diego in the late afternoon. We had a quick swim before heading out to find 'real' Mexican food! The hotel sent us to a great little place close by which had $2.50 beers and some of the best Mexican we've ever eaten. Thursday was zoo day. The zoo is huge and Bec was in heaven! We needed help from one of the volunteers to know where to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn San Diego/Rancho Bernardo
Good value for the area
I stayed one night at the Hilton Garden Inn for the same amount that 1-Star motels were charging in the downtown and beach areas. It took me less than 20 minutes to drive from the hotel into the San Diego downtown area (granted it was early on a Saturday morning).
The hotel was impeccably clean, in a safe area, and staffed with friendly, helpful people. It would be a great tourist homebase for a family with a car, as every room includes a refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. A grocery store is just a few blocks away, as are several inexpensive restaurants. If you don't mind a short drive into San Diego, I would definitely recommend this place.
I would really have to pick some nits to find fault with this property.
The quiet upscale community of Rancho Bernardo is centrally located for access to San Diego's attractions..less then 25 minutes to the Zoo/downtown, under 20 minutes to beaches, and less then a 15 minute drive to the spectacular Wild Animal Park.
The rooms were cheerfully decorated and immaculate. The pool area was commodious, with a decent sized pool. All common areas, including the lobby, bar and dining room were bright and tastefully decorated.
The semi-buffet breakfast with made to order omelettes, pancakes, or French toast was delicious.
The staff was very nice and quite professional.
I can't wait to go back!
August 9-13, 2006 Our family had 2 rooms and a suite and everyone was EXTREMELY pleased with the property!! The hotel is in a good location, just off I-15 approximately 25 minutes north of Lindbergh International Airport. The hotel was very clean and the housekeeping staff did a wonderful job making our room look fresh and inviting each day. There was plenty of parking, both outside of our room, so we could see our car, as well as underground in a locked parking garage, taking the elevator to our room. The 24 hour gym had new equipment and 2 t.v.'s to entertain me while I worked up a sweat. They even have excercise kits with a mat, excercise bands, etc to take to your room if you want. This is a great property for families as they have a nice pool/hot tub area with a BBQ and tables with umbrellas. It is also good for business travelers since they have a business center, and it is secure, you just use your room key to enter and check your e-mail, fax, print,etc. Our room had a microwave, fridge and complimentary coffee and there was also coffee in the lobby as well as fresh baked cookies in the afternoon! What a nice surprise! There were restaurants and groceries stores within walking distance. I would definitely return to this property!! They get an A+ in my book!
This is a very nice hotel. We stayed there for 2 nights. The staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean, with a microwave and frig in each. This is a great place to stay if your business is in this area, otherwise it is about 30 minutes from San Diego and traffic coming north to it from the airport and the city can be very congested.
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We booked through hilton.com a special package. If you book a special package, make sure you bring with you a list of all the included details and review them at check in with the front desk. The hotel desk staff was not up on what was included with the corporate-created packages. Not a big deal and they accomodated when asked, but you will have to review the details with them to ensure you are getting everything you paid for!
After planning our family vacation to Legoland/SeaWorld for months, the hotel we first chose on Hotel Circle turned out to be a nightmare on arrival. We quickly checked around and found a terrific deal at the Hilton Garden Inn. About 15-30 minutes outside of downtown via Interstate 15, Rancho Bernando seems to be an extremely affluent suburb. And this hotel fits right in - spotless, comfortable, even stylish. If they had crystal chandeliers and some expensive vases laying around, it would pass for a 4-star. Our very large king room had 15 ft ceilings, a quiet efficient air conditioner, comfortable bath, and practically unused sleeper sofa. The staff was extremely kind and took 100% care of a rather needy family. They even leave towels conveniently laid around the heated pool's deck chairs.
We have stayed in this hotel twice, each time for a 4-day stretch. The employees across the board do a good job of being gracious hosts - pleasant and accommodating - at the front desk staff, in the restaurant, and in housekeeping. A feature that works particularly well is the business center off the lobby. Printing goes smoothly from the reliable in-room internet connection to the printer which is housed in a public working room that is well-stocked with office supplies. Convenient printer access is a big plus in hotels these days.
I just returned from San Diego. I was staying at Hilton Garden Inn San Diego this Feb for 17 nights. The 3 storey high hotel is cosy, clean and safe to stay. There are laundry room, heated pool and 24 hour gym for the guests. The security measure is commendable as these areas are only accessible with your room key!! The staff are friendly and helpful. As breakfast is provided as part of my stay, I will dine at the restaurant every morning. The kitchen staff can even remember my preference of how i want my eggs to be done on my 2nd day of stay!! The hotel doesn't serve lunch but you can go to the supermarkets nearby to pick up microwavable food to heat up in your room. Or choose to dine at the restaurants or deli shops nearby. Other amenities like public library, drugstores and banks are nearby too. These are withing walking distance which takes merely 5mins. I will definitely stay at this hotel when i next visit San Diego. EXCELENTE
Just a bit Overpriced
Nice hotel, good interior finishes. Cocktails are served in the evening and generally good turnout. My double Gin and Tonic was reasonably priced. The hotel, overall, is overpriced by about 20$ per night, for the level of amenities and general proximity to, well, nothing. I can also vouch for the fact that it is structurally sound during earthquakes...
Shiney and New
Located in Rancho Bernado, a 15 minute drive from the centre of San Diego on the I15. Excellent hotel, newly opened, clean as a whistle with welcoming front desk staff. We only stayed for two nights but could happily have stayed for longer. The rooms are well equipped and have a microwave and fridge (although no crockery/cutlery etc.) and are very spacious. Bathrooms just as sparkly and new as the rest of the hotel. A good location for visiting the area surrounding San Diego without having to fight your way through the city traffic every day.
