Being in a pandemic and wanting a simple get away, our experience with the Hard Rock was horrible. Room was a disappointment. Nothing as pictured- our room keys did not work, although we asked for a new room key that new set of keys did not work. TV in the room did not work- the shower was mediocre. Will not be returning to the Hard Rock in San Diego.

The property was difficult to get into due to road closures and parking was even worse I highly recommend using Uber/Lyft or public transportation. Overall the experience was good and the hotel was amazing.
