6/10 Good

I stayed here for two weeks. Due to the pandemic situation, there are no daily room cleaning service and free breakfast available, and you can only ask for room service in advance. The room condition is just okay. TV is mediocre, wifi shuts down automatically from time to time, ac is cracked open and is only held on by a piece of tape, there are no coffee maker or kettle available, and one of the stovetops at the kitchen is broken, basically everything inside are pretty much old and outdated (didn't see any bugs unlike what others have experienced though). The location of the hotel itself is pretty nice, very close to numerous grocery stores and restaurants. There are security doors outside the perimeter that require code to enter, so I didn't worry too much about the safety issue. There are laundry available as well but you must pay for it. I'm not too happy about the rate for hotel rooms, $90 a day felt like absurd but again this is in California in holiday season, so everything has to be expensive as hell. Hopefully next time I visit San Diego the rate would be slightly cheaper. Do note that the hotel staff will ask for a $250 security deposit when you check in, so prepare to take your credit card out.

Very good experience!
The 3 of us work construction. Hard job, we liked finding our room left just the way we left it. We had plenty of electronics to worry about. The jacuzzi was awesome and i had to extend our stay another day. Took about 5 mins to do so. When we needed clean towels house keeping helped us out. We liked the place because it was hassle free.

Room was hot enough to cook a turkey.
I entered the room 1508 and it felt like a oven.the floors, especially the bathroom floor was so of the hot water pipe was under the took 3 hours to cool the room down....this was the only more issue was the bed slides around.and the support legs under the bed were bent.other wise it would be a 4 star..5 star if they had a coffee maker.

It was about what I expected for the price I paid. The only thing that was disappointing was that there were several times I saw a couple of cockroaches in the room. The bed was too soft for me, I like a firmer mattress, and the pillows were small and uncomfortable. They were more like throw pillows that you would have on a couch. I am six feet tall and the shower head was very low. It was in the middle of my chest. I really had to bend down to wash my hair. Other than that it was acceptable.
