Seaside finish

Last stop on the USA trip is sunny San Diego, one of Americas best cities. It has got a nice coastline and bay, beautiful parklands and is not too big making it easy to get around. The locals are chilled out compared to their neighbours just up the highway in L.A, for good reason. They have found a good spot to live and they know it.

There …

Finally we are in San Diego!

... 160; So it was a pretty full day at Sea World.  We stayed until about 4 pm then decided to head down to the amusement park on the waterfront.  Not a lot of people around, but we did squeeze in a game of mini-golf, which we haven't played for a long time.  By this time, we were starting to get a little hungry, so we decided to head for the gaslamp quarter...where we couldn't find a parking spot to save our lives after ...

... or restaurants is a very pleasant experience. So, after a five hour flight, we arrived on schedule into San Diego - a city that looks great from the air and carries an excellent reputation. Our flight was made all the more interesting by passengers directly behind us who had a carry-on pet bag, containing their prize puss, which decided to cry like a Banshee on the wrong end of a good **** skelping at crucial points, just when I was nodding off; plus a young couple who sat in ...

    Tricky Pricing & No Breakfast

    I did a search to find the best San Diego package with a hotel and attractions that included Sea World.

    This resort looks great; however, they charge $25 to park at the hotel and there is no other place to park.

    No breakfast.

    I will stay at a Holiday Inn Express next time. This resort was not worth the price I paid.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa

    Disappointed at the Hilton 'Resort'

    from

    We booked our vacation at the Hilton Resort in San Diego using Expedia. The hotel description and reviews made the property sound like it was secluded, on the beach, and lush--just what we were looking for to escape the cold winter in the NY metro area. Unfortunately, the hotel, as resorts go, is a major disappointment. The property is located literally just off a highway, and our room faces said highway (I can hear the roar of the cars as I write this review). We asked about changing our room, but were told since we booked it online it would be a 50 dollar change fee, plus 35 dollars more per night! This is the first time I have booked online and been made to feel, by the property, that I am a second rate guest. The hotel is not located near anything, there is only one restaurant on premises, and, as I said, the resort like atmosphere is somewhat lacking. There is a small beach area, and the pool is nice enough, but the two hot tubs are lukewarm, the fitness center (which costs extra, not unusual for a resort, but you'd expect to get more) is adequate, but, by resort standards, it is just adequate (no steam room, the sauna, which is out back by a maintenance closet is co-ed and run down). I'd say this is more of an upscale motel, complete with easy highway access, than a resort property, and I'd recommend that anyone considering staying here to get away from it all, get away from the Hilton Resort in San Diego.

    Nearly paradise

    from

    Been at this hotel on a couple business trips. Great location, peaceful, and very friendly employees. No high speed connections in the rooms, only the business center. Extremely clean and well appointed rooms. Check your bill for charges from the in room basket/bar, even if you didn't touch it. Food is good, but nothing outstanding. Pool is excellent, extensive Koi pond. Great place for vacationing, and easy to get to. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anything other than business trips.

    Not a Dump!

    from

    This hotel should not be described as a dump!!! It is a beautiful hotel in a total secluded area of San Diego. It it located steps from a park, where you can go rollerblading, running, biking, and over looks Mission Valley. The grounds of the hotel on beautiful, and I loved driving back to the hotel at night. The staff at the hotel were above average, and very friendly, they gave us ideas of resteraunts in the Gaslamp quarter and places to go for new years. We stayed off season and got a fabolous rate on hotwire. Unfortunately, beacause it was low 60s for most of our trip we weren't able to take full advantage of the water sports, pool bar, and staying in the pool for more then 20 min....it is heated during the winter, but I would recommend skipping the pool and going straight to the hot tub.....and only swim if your doing if for exercise. Also when you get to the hotel ask for a robe, so you can use it as soon as you get out of the water. This a very good choice and highly recommended.

    Fine hotel, excellent Mission Bay location

    from

    Stayed at this hotel in July 2003 with our two boys, ages 5 & 8. Had an excellent time! The hotel has a very nice pool area although the water's cold. The beach was OK but I wouldn't stay there for the beach.

    We rented paddleboats for a fee and enjoyed the experience. The location of the hotel near Sea World is great and each night we were able to see Sea World's fireworks show right over the Bay. Our kids loved it!! Food is good and the room was fine. Recommended!

    Nice Place

    from

    We stayed at the Hilton San Diego Resort for five nights as a gift vacation. My family had two rooms in the main "tower" building of the resort and we were generally very pleased.

    Beautiful and quiet, but not what I expected

    from

    My husband and I recently stayed at the Hilton on Mission Bay in San Diego for the first few nights of our honeymoon. It is a beautiful property with nice landscaping, but I thought the rooms were average. I paid $300/night for one of the villa rooms overlooking the water, and I just expected so much more elegance and extravegance for $300/night. It was a very peaceful and pleasant stay, but I just thought something was missing. I do want to note that when they realized we were there on our honeymoon, they brought us a bottle of wine, which was thoughtful. The restaurant there was very good also...a little pricey, but that is to be expected!

    Hilton Mission Bay Is Great!

    from

    We booked a room for two nights at the San Diego Resort Hilton and it was an amazing stay! The staff was so nice everyone from front desk to housekeeping who dried my wet jeans in their laundry free for me. Our room was spectacular with a beautful bay view and a sliding door opening steps away from sand. They have their own dock with jetski,sailboat,paddleboat, etc to rent. It was a great deal and we will go back! p.s. the hotel is kind of hard to find at night so have a map even though its right off the 5 freeway

    Great Hotel

    from

    Great Hotel! Very nice pool area. Somewhat isolated, but that was nice too. Got a great rate on Hotwire.

    Nicer than expected

    from

    After reading some negative reviews we didn't have high expectations for this resort but were pleasantly surprised! The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our visit. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. The pool area was very nice and kept well heated during this cool spell. Pool bar closed during winter but could bring drinks out from nearby resturant/bar. Our room was not spectacular but just fine, 2 queen beds, large bathroom, desk with 2 comfortable chairs, walk out patio with garden view. Able to rent bikes and roller blades on property. Hotel resturant very good for breakfast. Only real negative here was the beach area, not too nice and bay contaminated so no swimming anyway. Would stay here again in off season but during summer would try to stay on ocean.

    Certainly not paradise!

    from

    I was expecting a beautiful hotel with excellent service. What I found was mediocre rooms at an inflated rate. Reservation were screwed up and they tried to pawn off a garden view room, at a bay view price! My room was not cleaned the first day! Try Paradise Point Resort, and experience the stay I was expecting from the Hilton San Diego Resort!
