The hotel

You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do at San Diego Mission Bay Resort.

Went to San Diego for the Nomads Soccer Tournament. This was a stay and play hotel so we had to stay here as part of the tournament. Got to the hotel around 130pm. Told room wasn’t ready and that it would be ready closer to check-in time of 4pm which was understood. We were there waiting while everyone that was checking in got their room. I figured they had ,maybe, different types of rooms so they were getting checked in. One of the moms in our soccer team showed up , checked in and got her room. She got her room around 220pm as we were still waiting for ours. We booked the same retype of room through the same stay and play link. I even checked with her to see the type of room she got and it was the same as the one we got. So, why would I have to wait for a room longer than the next person showing up 50 min after me? Keep in mind she had no special accommodations. This was very frustrating and annoying. Once I started showing my frustration is when they started to help me up. I wouldn’t stay again or recommend this place. The hotel is nice but there are many others that are equal or better quality. Very frustrating ! I have to say thank you to Jeffery though. He witnessed when I got there and he did what he could to help me out. He even went to check the room to see if it was ready. I would say he went beyond his duties to help me out. Read less

Hotel is not well maintained. Need to pay more attention to details if you demand that kind of price for resort.The room key is not smooth. The parking lot entrance does not work. The gate lock to the pool does not work.

My son has special needs, I made clear to the booking desk that we needed bathtub and was told the Moonlight Suites had a bathtub, so instead of booking two rooms I paid more and got the suite. No bathtub. By then I had booked more family in adjoining rooms and was stuck there for three days. In that time, when I complained the front desk… Read more
My son has special needs, I made clear to the booking desk that we needed bathtub and was told the Moonlight Suites had a bathtub, so instead of booking two rooms I paid more and got the suite. No bathtub. By then I had booked more family in adjoining rooms and was stuck there for three days. In that time, when I complained the front desk manager's FIRST RESPONSE was to accuse me of lying because he listened to the tapes of my booking calls. That was rude and stupid because it's all in email. DON'T SUPPORT THIS PROPRTY. Read less

Holiday visit. Beautiful location. Go when it’s not busy and I’m sure you will have a better experience. Ask for a quiet area and you may have to speak up yourself if guests are noisy next to you. Staff didn’t seem to enforce the quiet hours.
