I stayed here because the hotel I usually stay at (Super 8 in La Mesa) was sold out and because the reviews were not half bad. I rated this a poor only because of the price of $100 a night. If this was a $60 a night hotel I would of rated it an average. This hotel is a borderline 2 star but closer to a 1 /1/2. The Super 8 in La Mesa is a 2 star which feels like a 3. (see prior review of that hotel)
First the Good - The people who work here are very friendly and I almost feel bad for rating this so poorly because of that. From the check in to the service at the breakfast they were courteous.
Now the Bad - This hotel just feels unclean. From the worn out rugs to the moldings in the rooms, to around the sink and tub areas it just feels like its not very clean. They really need to update everything. The furniture is old and out dated. The TV is an old tube version and the internet service is poor if you can hook up at all.
Now the UGLY - When I got onto my room I could smell stain and when I went to use the desk I could see why. It appeared that they just stained and lacquered the furniture. It was unusable for the 3 days as it was still tacky. I would of asked for a new room but I was already ready for bed when I noticed it was still wet. I travel a lot and I have never encountered anything this before. This was very unprofessional.
Needless to say I won't be staying here again. Its a shame as I I travel to this area a lot as my son lives in San Diego, but it just isn't worth it.
