A friend and I stayed here after not researching which college this was near - we were hoping to be near La Jolla. But we had a car, and were happy to drive the 20 minutes to La Jolla. We were only here the one night.
The carpet was extremely dirty - we got black feet from walking across the floor just once. Ended up wearing flip flops the rest of the time we were in the room, as well as in the shower which also looked unclean.
The room had a very musty smell, like stale cigarettes, even though there was a non-smoking sign on the door. We could also smell the smoke of others wafting in through the airconditioner.
Attempted to use the pool just to cool off, but had a staff member rush over and begin scooping leaves. Made me feel uneasy so I left literally after a couple of minutes.
In hindsight, I wish we had researched a little more!
