I was happy I was able to get a room during one of the most crowded events for San Diego (ComicCon) but was truly apprehensive to stay based on the previous reviews here. But, I decided to chance it and be objective based on my own experience. Having said that, I have to say that it's not really worth the savings or the peace of mind for me as a lone business traveler. Ideally, I would not like to see part of the door lock cover on the ground before I even try to step into the room. I also don't expect cigarette burns on the carpet and floor even though it was a smoking room. Then there shouldn't be rust spots in the bathroom or the possibility of me falling through the floor of the bathtub while I'm taking a shower. I could mention that the towels were so old they felt like sandpaper on my skin and the bedcover was just as crispy old as the towels. Although the bed was soft but firm, the sheets were noticeably old with holes. The overall decor is dated probably can say from the late 70's-early 80's. The neighborhood was kinda iffy in that is it right next to the trolley station. It is a major convenience for someone who needs to be in the downtown area easily, so that would be the only plus-side to this hotel. My overall recommendation would be to avoid this hotel if possible. The savings was not worth the amenities provided in the condition it was in. Unfortunately I did not take photos for fear of breaking my lens from bad images.
