    Incredibly dog friendly

    Polly was welcomed with a treat, she was able to lounge by the pool, and greeted by all the staff. Blake was very sweet.

    They offer no special dog amenities (bed/bowl/etc), but they do allow dogs in the rooftop bar for Thursday Yappy hour!

    Great place for dogs

    It’s the only hotel with grass all around outside and next to some great restaurants.

    Overall a great stay

    Great location in Gaslamp. $50 valet which it pretty pricey but it has in and out privileges so it was most convenient. Our small to medium sized dogs (2) were comfortable in the room and could run around. Astroturf in front of hotel, but there’s grass a couple blocks down by Petco park. Wonderful and very friendly hotel staff, but the hotel is a bit older.

    Great Experience

    We loved the customer service. I was surprised to receive a text message asking if anything was needed once I settled into the room. Everything was so easy. I like that there were areas in the front of the hotel for my fur baby to use the restroom. Usually my fur baby takes a long time to find a spot to do his business but it was right away during our stay. The employees there were very attentive. Definitely will be staying at this hotel again when staying at San Diego.

    Great location for weekend with my pup

    The hotel is located in a great location….walking distance from Petco Park and the seaport village…15 min drive from Coronado Dog Beach or Old Town. The room was very clean, hotel was quiet, and the staff was friendly. I dinged one star…only because this is a review on BringFido. I reserved the room through BringFido, so the hotel should’ve known a dog was coming. I had to ask for dog bowls etc. The staff quickly accommodated my request. If this were a review for any other hotel site, I would give 5 star.

    Great Location!

    Had a good stay with our pets, location is central to many restaurants and nightlife. Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating, though the valet parking was a little pricey, it was convenient and located at the hotel, staff retrieved vehicle in a timely manner. I will stay here again when I’m in town, with or without my four-legged friends.

    Great location, super dog friendly

    The staff there is great, the location has a number of dog-friendly restaurants in the area & plenty of nightlife.

    They have some extra leashes & balls, bring your own bowls though. Thumbs up, we'll be back!

    Perfect with your pup

    The hotel was in a perfect location, close to ocean and to gas lamp. Clean, pet friendly, would stay again

    Great location, but some unwelcome surprises

    Honestly, the hotel itself was fine. BUT, upon checking out, we were hit with $50 for parking and another $25 resort fee. I understand that those things are typically paid at hotels, but we pre-paid through BringFido, and there was no mention. In fact, at check in, we all heard the host tell us parking was included. Shame really, but the room was $150, so they added 50%...won't stay there again.

    Amazing services

    From the moment you walk in, you and your friend are treated with smiles and helped to get checked in smoothly. I accidentally booked the wrong weekend, but I was still able to get a room and the service was just as great. Rooms were spacious and clean and since it’s in the middle of gas lamp district, you have lots of opportunities to take a stroll with your friend, and enjoy the sites of San Diego. I look forward to staying here again next time!!!!

    Great spot., but...

    Hotel is very welcoming of dogs and staff are wonderful. Great location too. But, being that I look for information HERE I’m giving my honest opinion. We would come back, for sure. I just wouldn’t be surprised to find there is nothing special for dogs. No treats, no beds, nothing. That’s fine I was just surprised since everyone raved and I come to BringFido to find great pet spots. Aside from that, I would have given the hotel a higher rating, but I didn’t know there was no service (housecleaning) unless you stay for 7 days or more. So, when we ran out of toilet paper, we had to ask for it. When we needed towels, we had to ask. The ultimate problem was there was only ONE working elevator and it’s COVID so there were limited numbers of folks allowed on per ride. It was quite a nightmare.

    Amazing Hotel

    Hotel Solarmar was a fantastic hotel to stay for me and my dogs. My friend and I took a weekend trip to San Diego and last minute our airbnb pulled out due to the amount of pets. Well Hotel Solarmar came in for the win, when they were able to accomadate 2 adults and 4 dogs. Every one was very friendly and understanding. The hotel was very clean/ sanitized and guest were nice and enjoyed seeing the dogs. I'd recommend this hotel to everyone!

    Great Location- Easy Stay

    They offered Dog Beds and Bowls- even though my guy decided he wanted to sleep half the night under my bed. Had a great time, our dog was allowed everywhere we went in the hotel.

    Very dog friendly

    This hotel does not just accomodate pets they are legit pet friendly! my dog even got treats from the valet. the hotel is a five minute walk from Petco Park where there is a large grassy area for your dog to “do his business “ The staff are all extremely friendly. We’ll be back for sure!

    Great location and very dog friendly

    We really enjoyed our stay! They were very welcoming of our dog and super responsive to any requests. Love the complimentary daily coffee/tea station and nightly wine hour. Only drawback is dogs aren’t allowed at either restaurant, even though one is outdoors.

    "Dog friendly" is an understatement

    Incredibly impressed with how accommodating the Kimpton Solamar was to me and my Dachsund. Many "pet friendly" hotels are not as friendly as they are tolerant, but this is an exception--exceptionally warm and welcoming. Beautiful hotel with great amenities. The pool deck and lounge area on the 4th floor are just delightful!

    Not the Kimpton Standards

    No pet welcome at checkin.
    No pet standards like other Kimpton properries.
    No pets at the bar.
    No pets at the pool.
    No return for us.
