“Alot of $ for dirty room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The carpets were filthy and the maid service left alot to be desired. We had a suite and there was no a/c in the back bedroom requiring us to by a fan. The T.v.'s were sub-par in both rooms.We paid alot of money in advance for a room that wasn't as clean as it should have been.

Dear Ms. Katie,

Please accept my apology for the inconvenience caused to you while your stay with us.
There has been some sort of mis-understanding with what you found in the room as we concentrate a lot on housekeeping and to find a drug substance as you mentioned in the room is impossible to be missed by our housekeepers.
Although the hotel's management has carefully reviewed your complaints and suggestions and is in the process to remodel the property one-step at a time.
We have also considered your complaint very seriously and have decided to make the hotel 100% smoke free to make a pleasant stay for our guest that travel with families and children.

Once again accept my apology and I hope you would give us another chance by staying with us again.

I stayed in this establishment with my family from the 4th of June until the 7th in room 220 (up stairs opposite side and end of the main office), and then again in the same room on the 12th and 13th. At first it seemed alright, the rooms weren't too bad, seemed clean. The pull out couch was rock hard and we needed some items brought to our room, but the staff was friendly. We were willing to overlook the occasional dry pastry at breakfast or other imperfections as this is a budget hotel.
Later on in the first part of our stay one family member developed small bumps throughout his body. There was black stains on the sheets up on his pillow and near the where the bump areas would have been. We thought nothing of it and thought he was having an allergic reaction to the type of detergent or something. I was unaffected until the second stay in which I slept in the bed he did during the previous time frame. After sleeping in the bed i noticed the same small black stains and I developed bumps as well. Soon after the trip my entire family developed the bites. We are 99.9% sure it is/was bedbugs because others have complained about it and the bites can take up to 14 days to appear (meaning the ones showing up on me now as I sit here writing this are possibly still from then) according to the articles we've read and research we've done.
The most concerning part about this issue is that it has gone on repeatedly according to the reviews of this hotel and has not been fixed. There is NO reason the staff should be denying the fact that there are bedbugs in this hotel when multiple customers have seen and or been bitten. This is unacceptable.

I am currently disinfecting my entire home and have been for the past two days in the likely event that one of these bugs made its way into or on our suitcases.

This is truly unacceptable and i HIGHLY recommend finding another place to stay. San Diego is a beautiful place to vacation, but its hard to vacation when you're being bitten by bedbugs.

Room Tip: Find a room without bedbugs

Hello Alex,

Please accept my sincere apology.
We had taken immediate action and now it has been under control.. I would not like to defend our self but at times these bed bugs travel with foreign travelers through their baggage. Previously the flight carriers use to fumigate all baggage of the travelers for the best interest of the country and to prevent foreign bugs or insect to travel but unfortunately for price cutting and for their survival they do not hence these bugs travel through the baggage and at times create a problem which is out of our control. Its the guest who complaints and after we come to know of the problem of which we take action.... Anyway now it has been under control and we assume no more such problem should arise in future.

Once again please accept my sincere apology.

We just spent five nights here and were completely satisfied with the accommodations. We loved that the room had a separate living room area from the bedroom. Having a fridge and microwave was a nice perk. The water pressure is great and never ran out of hot water. The staff is available but not intrusive. We came out to visit family in the area.
We will gladly book here again when we come out for another visit. It's exactly what we needed...a clean, comfortable space to sleep and shower. We never worried about leaving our car here when family would pick us up for an outing. It was pretty busy over the weekend, but once in our room, we never heard other guests.
Lots of pillows on the bed, plenty of towels, coffee maker in the room, cable tv in the bedroom and the living room and the wifi worked great!
We didn't use the pool or the laundry facilities, but both of these being on site are advantageous to the traveler on an extended stay.
