I stayed here for just about 40 days. I’d say my stay was pretty mediocre. Since I was here for school and the school had their bank information linked to the room, the front desk tried to charge ME for parking. I guess that’s something the school should’ve settled, but why would they charge me if they had the school’s info on file?
Any other time I tried to reach the front desk, there was no one there. One night, they even had a sign on the door that said no vacancy and that no one was in for the night. I doubt it because there was an empty room next to me.
Additionally, washing/drying laundry is $5 to wash and $5 to dry. I’m not from California, but those are crazy prices. Other hotels I’ve been to in San Diego, laundry is $2! One occasion, I wanted to wash, but all of the washers were in use—not that they were actually on, but there were clothes in all of the machines! There was a handwritten note in pink highlighter on the door that said to be mindful of your loads and be considerate of others. Really helpful.
The “breakfast” consists of pre-packaged muffins, granola bars, and warm water and coffee that was left out the night before. Do yourself a favor and get a Starbucks rewards account and get your breakfast there (down the street) or go to Einstein Bagels (also down the street).
I think I might’ve had a room that someone wrote a review about previously. There was a gap under the baseboard near the tub. Shower curtain does not do a great job at keeping the water in the shower. My sink drain clogged up but I wasn’t able to get ahold of anyone at the front desk because no one was ever there.
Almost forgot to mention that I received 2 notices on my door while staying here. One was for the water, stating that the water will be turned off for a period of time for a leak. Another was for checking the smoke detectors, which I don’t think were actually checked because the smoke detector in my room never blinked.
Did I mention there was a power outage at one point for 3 hours in the middle of the night?
