Only sleeps 4 not 5
The room was neat & clean but only sleeps 4 and we are a family of 5. We booked for 5 but when I checked in, the lady said they don’t mind us having 5 in the room but only provide two Queen beds & they have no rollaways!

Good 6.0
Overall not a bad stay. Coming back to hotel late evening with no parking was disappointing. I asked office why they don’t have enough parking for their guests. She stated “our guests have guests and we’re not gonna tow them”. She referred me to park in the street. Paying customers should be allowed 1 parking spot and if they have guests, guests should park in the street. What is the purpose of asking for vehicle plate number? Also, pipes rattle when you turn on hot water. We heard it anytime surrounding rooms turned on hot water to the point where sleep was interrupted.

Fixable issues need to be addressed
San Diego is the reason we were here and loved it. The booking system mistakenly lost a reservation and we had to wait 2 hours before it was rectified and were able to enter the room. Housekeeping generally was very poor they do not clean the room everyday when requested and it was very difficult to communicate to them. There also was a serious ant problem in the rooms

Quiet & Comfortable
Great stay, loved the room... super spacious and remodeled hotel and had some areas that needed to be painted and bottom of the bathroom door was damaged but the beds were comfortable, the room was clean and we had a great time. Staff was awesome and loved having the restaurant and liquor/convenience store on property. We never left for the entire weekend due to the heatwave and weren’t mad about it!
