"Sadness"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I had originally reserved this location, however due to reasons beyond my control( passing of my mother) I needed to cancel this reservation however I was told that I couldn’t and to contact the hotel. Called hotel as well as was told the same thing. So I’m loosing my money for a room I can’t use. So no I’m not pleased with this travel group at all.

"A Very Pleasant Stay. Breakfast Was Awesome."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This place is perfectly located if you want to go to all the clubs and stores around Solana Beach. It's five blocks from the Belly Up club, which has a lot of top notch venues. The breakfast is awesome: they even have a pancake maker, eggs, bacon, cereal, muffins, etc. The price is very reasonable too. I would definitely come back.
