Vintage San Diego stay with all the feels
Check in is easy here and we quickly got parked and settled into our poolside room. The doors open right out to the pool and we rlaxed and had cocktails and soaked in the San Diego sun. At some point before heading out to dinner our bathroom had a serious sci-fi worthy ant invasion. When I reported this to the front desk they immediately changed our room to an equally good room and helped us move our stuff. The room was discounted for our trouble and the rest of the stay was perfect. Customer service is an A++ here The breakfast was tasty but be aware, our order was mixed up in the kitchen and instead of remaking someone's plate of food they scraped off the fruit she was allergic too and tossed on what she ordered. It was subpar and the waitress seems put out by us pointing out that it took them nearly 10 min to "scrape" the berries off her oatmeal and then return it. I've stayed here before and would stay again, I might just rethink eating there. its just eating your breakfast in PJ's by the pool after a night out is hard to beat.

Gave it a try
The rooms are incredibly out of date and uncomfortable. The pool was ok outside of the few creepy perverts just staring at the women there.
