    Fabulous 8.8 From 884 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Very enjoyable stay. The staff was great and really enjoyed the pool and pool bar.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Perfect choice
    Great hotel, excellent service, quirky design, amazing amenities like pool, freee yoga classes, and daily happy hour with free wine and beer. Location was ideal - close to a number of bars and restaurants but a quick bike or car ride away to the other wonderful neighborhoods and sites of San Diego.

    Very good 8.0
    Good stay.
    Hotel is nice in a great location. Interior is slightly older and cleanliness wasn't perfect.
    Amy, gb3 night trip
    Good 6.0
    Friendly staff, disappointed with service.
    Booked this hotel as there was a good offer for a four star hotel. Location was ideal and facilities appeared excellent. Staff were friendly and there was a nice gesture when they delivered a Birthday/ Halloween treat to our room for my daughter's birthday (which was on Halloween). However, we were without hot water to wash/ shave for seven of the nine nights we stayed despite us reporting this on a number of occasions. Staff originally advised that it would be sorted by an engineer that day but as days passed with still no hot water, they admittedly there was an issue and would recompense me for the ongoing problem. So on checking out, I learned that they would not charge me for the breakfast that my daughter and had on one single occasion at the hotel! So seven nights without hot water equates to one free breakfast on the hotel! How generous! I was disappointed that the Kimpton Solamar could not resolve a hot water issue for a week! Shaving in cold water with goosebumps is no fun! So, yes - friendly staff but poor service in resolving water issue. I am not planning on booking with Kimpton Solamar again.

    Good 6.0
    Lovely hotel, we had stayed before and love the feel of the place but never quite had the outstanding service we had last year. Rooms not dirty by any means but again not as thorough a clean as previous year.
