Very Good 8.0
Great hotel - but ask for earplugs.
Very nice and clean hotel. The staff was very friendly, informative and very helpful . Location is right at Little Italy with lots of restaurants. Unfortunately the location next to the highway and a busy street as well as flights overhead landing at the airport makes the location very noisy. We had a room out to the street and wished we had brought earplugs. Was told there are earplugs available at the reception, but didn’t know until we checked out. Our friends had a room away from traffic and had a peaceful night.

Exceptional 10.0
Just a straight up opinion.
Hotel needs at least a pull off to unload your luggage. Hotels located in the Little Italy section of San Diego. If you're single or a couple, this area probably seems like a lot of fun. If you have a family it seems like a hassle.

Poor 2.0
Staying at the Found Hotel was the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. The actual establishment looks very nice on the outside and even on the inside, however, the room we were staying in (Suite C) was absolutely horrendous. The bathroom looked like a cheap gym bathroom and there was black mold in the grout of the shower. It was apparently “just cleaned” however, there were hair wads all over the floor and still stuck to the bathroom walls. Quite disgusting. This was not even the worst of it, on Saturday AND Sunday the water had to be shut off for 4 hours and it was during the middle of the day. The hotel did not give us notice about this until THE MORNING OF and I had to get ready for a wedding during those times and it was extremely inconvenient let alone EMBARRASSING that I had to go to my friends hotel to shower. Upon check out, we were running just a few minutes late, maybe 3 minutes, and the hotel supervisor had to knock on the bathroom door while I was showering and threatened that I have 10 minutes to check out or else I have to pay an extra $50. Mind you, this hotel is EXTREMELY small and I am pretty sure I was the only one left in that hotel, which baffles me that they could not accommodate me especially for the water being shut off two days in a row. I voiced my opinion to the supervisor Nico Llamas and he was unbelievably rude. He tried to come up with as many excuses to counter me and refused to give me the GM’s number or contact info. DO NOT STAY HERE
