Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed here for one night for an early morning flight. Location is nice but that is about the only nice part. Rooms are very old and outdated, vanity in bathroom had lots of water damage. Mold in bathtub and toilet was dirty, cleaning staff does not do their job or at least on our room. This is not your typical Hilton property like I am used to.

Really nice spot, the staff were really nice. Panorama restaurant was great for meals too. Shuttle crew were really good. Coming from the Northeast we really enjoyed the hospitality of all the folks working there. This place reminded us of how service should be in 2024!

I just stayed at this hotel on a business trip, and I had a very pleasant stay. I got upgraded to a room with a balcony with a beautiful harbor view, which I was very happy about. The room was clean and was nice for an airport hotel. The bed and the pillows were also very comfortable. The best part of the room was definitely the balcony with the harbor view. The only negative part of my stay was that housekeeping woke me up early in the morning twice to try and clean my room. Other than that, I was very pleased with my stay. Matthew from the front desk helped me check in when I arrived, and he was very courteous, friendly and funny. He provided great customer service and made sure to take care of me during the duration of my stay. The hotel restaurant was also good and accommodated me which I really appreciated. I ordered the chicken club sandwich which was pretty good and reasonably priced. Overall, I would definitely stay at this Hilton again next time I’m in San Diego.

This Hilton is in bad need of a renovation. The rooms don’t even have USB ports. I had to pay $10 for a plug for my phone. Paint chipping all over the bathroom vanity; the hallway carpet and wallpaper looked straight out of the nineties. Friendly staff and a pretty view. I had not stayed here in about 15 years. I guess I forgot how dated this dinosaur is.

My first and only stay at a Hilton, what I expected and what I got was two extremes. Rudeness by the female front desk people. The other staff were polite and helpful. Bathtub wouldn’t drain, no hot water for the shower. Shortage of towels for two people. 1 cup for coffee. Compared to the other Hotel Brands we stayed at during our Arizona/California vacation I was most disappointed in the Hilton, I’ve cancelled my Hilton Honours card, will be hard pressed to stay at another Hilton.
