Saturday nights are busy and smell like pot
Room was small no fridge microwave iron towels (we had to ask for two since there was two of us) no hair dryer. Basic conveniences were missing and it seemed liked asking for them was a problem or they didn’t have them. There were homeless people living there and staying there with other people and making a mess. They had no downstairs rooms despite my handicapped placard and no elevators. The ice machine broke during our stay as well. Saturday nights are super busy are pot odors and seem like a lot of hookers stay there as well.

POOR Check in experience
First, FINDING the hotel was so difficult I had to call from a parking lot dow the street after passing it a couple of times. The clerk in the lobby was mostly unhelpful. we drove past two more times until we fially spotted it and turned into a driveway that has a SMALL, UNLIGHTED sign. That driveway unded up being an unpaved pathway that lead past the hotel and parking lot, that was separated by a large curb. We had to make a 3 point turn around to get back to the street ad look for a different driveway to get to the hotel. That driveway was for a Korea BBQ restaurant. The hotel was around behind the restaurant, and was NOT visible from the main street. There was another UNLIGHTED hotel sign at this driveway. It was dark / night. So unless you knew this hotel was back there, you would not know it was there. Next, more bothersome than the difficulty in finding the hotel, was the negative interaction I had with the not-so-charming employee manning the lobby check-in. I mentioned that there were NO LIGHTED signs for the hotel. The hotel could not be seen from the street. she seemed amused by this. Very unhelpful woman. Entertaining herself by making other uncomfortable. She would not answer my questions regarding the location of our room. While standing there another poor driver was going down that fake driveway street that runs along outside the hotel border. All in all a very negative experience that happened because of the check-in employee.

San Diego trip
It was a pleasant, uneventful, no frills stay. Bed was not very comfortable and no coffee maker in room.
