... swimming area and watched them for a bit - one seemed very determined to show one of the trainers a flower he found.  This is where I start having a hard time.  I love seeing these animals in person. (and Darrin even got to touch the dolphin - which he's wanted to do for years after getting shoved aside by mother's with kids at Marineland and missing his chance).  But they are so highly intelligent (along with the orca's) and I feel like ...

Second game day successfully completed but what a change to the weather. From 27 degrees on Monday to a very cold blustery wind and rain yesterday. The girls could not get warm and play was not good with a few pulled muscles in the cold. We hit some very competitive (more than us) teams and it was quite an effort to keep the girls at the ...

... Southern California weather is everything it's cracked up to be - stunning is the only true descriptive! After breakfast, we spent the morning lazing by the pool, then we headed off to explore the old town area, where we enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner at the highly acclaimed (and rightly so!) Cafe Coyote: http://www.cafecoyoteoldtown.com/contac t.html Mo had Tequila Lime Shrimp and I chose the Beef Chimichanga, both washed down with the ...

... First bag on the scales, 46 pounds, second 41 pounds, third 41 pounds and the mini was 15 pounds. All clear. A 45 minute flight to San Diego, where it was a cooler 72 degrees. A nice flight, we collected our bags, and headed to the car agency. We picked up a Chevy Cruze. Not as good as the Fusion. We still miss her. We checked in then had a walk around San Diego town. Dinner was at a Persian restaurant, something a bit ...

We went to the Pacific Beach area for dinner and ate at a fantastic New Zealand restaurant. After dinner we strolled on the boardwalk by the beach and watched all the surfers in the waves. It didn't take long for the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hillcrest Inn Hotel San Diego

Fun Experience

from

I have stayed at the Hillcrest Inn several times, and have always had a very enjoyable stay. The staff treats you like an old friend, and you can walk to all the Hillcrest activity spots, Balboa Park, and the bars, without having to get in the car. Bare bones rooms, but we never felt we did without any necessity. Fun Hot tubs, close to shopping, has a fridge in the room, we always have a ball. We prefer to always stay at gay owned/operated hotels and this certainly fills the bill!

Chock full of fun

from

I look forward to my stay at the Hillcrest Inn every trip I take to San Diego. The place has an intimate feel that lets all the guests know one another very quickly. I have always found myself invited to a party in some room, where I have had the best time of my stay!

Bring ear plugs

from

I could'nt ask for a more convenient location,but parking was limited.I was given a room that was above some kind of motor or pump system that was really,really loud and it tortured me all night long.The only way I could sleep was with two pillows over my head.

Like camping out?

from

This experience was like urban camping. The facility has no air conditioning so if you're visiting in summer you must "attempt" to sleep with the windows open but since a hospital is just blocks away from the Inn, be at the ready for sirens blasting all night long.

Remember, no AC and your windows are open. The heat in the room was so oppressive we thought we were in a tent in the deep woods. Don't have a car, either. There's no on-site parking and everything on the street is metered or zoned residential so you're screwed with a car. Room decor resembled less a motel than a bath house. Stay away!

Once is enough here!

from

You can't beat the central Hillcrest location, but this place is a dive, really. As a supposedly popular gay hotel, you think they'd have some money to spend on decent prints for the walls and acceptable bedspreads. The rooms in the place are butt ugly! Our room didn't have A/C so it was hot at night. Worst of all - the bathroom felt dirty, I had to go buy Comet and a scrub brush in order to feel comfortable taking a shower there.

Get it together!

from

This hotel faces the side of a very large drugstore, so forget about the view. The bed was lumpy, with dirty floors and sink. San Diego must have better places than this.

Beware of the Hillcrest Inn!

from

Paper-thin walls forced us to hear the neighbors' drunken fist-fights -- broken hot tub -- dirty bathroom -- odor of mildew permeated the entire place. The "hotel" was a slum.

Friendly and Fun

from

During my very first visit to San Diego I had the pleasure to stay at The Hillcrest Inn. Ther staff at this hotel is fun, friendly and professional. The hotel itself is situated right in the center of the fanous Hillcrest area of San Diego, just steps to an array of clubs, bars and shopping and many other attractions. The rooms are modest, but are kept very clean. The small size of the hotel creates a commaradery with staff and guests. I would definately recommend Hillcrest Hotel to anyone visiting the San Diego area. My THANKS!! to the staff for making my stay such a pleasant one.

What a dump!

from

If you work there and you're reading this ... clean that place up!!! Get rid of the sticky carpet, air the place out, and find out what a coat of paint does for things! Yuk!!!!!

If you're looking for a decent, clean, spacious place to stay, go a few more blocks to 5th & Spruce and stay at the Park Manor Suites.

Hillcrest Inn Rocks!

from

Friendly staff, and only blocks away from all the gay clubs in San Diego. The hot tub is lots of fun too --- a good way to get to know your fellow guests. Don't stay anywhere else if you're gay and visiting San Diego.
