I'm an author and I'm starting to do a lot of traveling for conventions, book signings, and the like. The last few hotels I've stayed in were nightmares for a variety of reasons, though the prices were normally at least okay. But price isn't everything. Cleanliness and helpfulness of staff are really hugely key to an enjoyable stay.
For my latest trip, I asked the bookstore where I'd be signing for a hotel recommendation. They gave me this one, and thank goodness I asked and listened to them!
The hotel has a great location right off the 805 freeway, so in the heart of the San Diego area. It looks dingy from the outside, honestly, but it's the inside that actually matters. Check in was pleasant and fast, and when I asked to change rooms from 2 beds to 1, it was easily handled, with the clerk making sure that I was okay going onto the 3rd floor. There's an elevator, older but working perfectly. Plenty of parking.
The room was fine, nothing earth-shattering, but it was incredibly clean, the bed was large and quite comfortable, there were plenty of pillows and towels, and the bathroom was also spotless. The closet is part of the larger outer bathroom/sink area, but I personally found this convenient. Shower head was large, new and stainless steel, bathtub was good with the rounded curtain rod that gives you actual room to bathe. There was a huge chest of drawers and a large TV as well. Free and nicely appointed continental breakfast. Maid service was excellent, and no issues with them cleaning while I was in the room working. No issues with getting extra towels, either. Check out was also pleasant, with clear directions given to find a gas station (I drove for this trip). The free internet actually worked, and worked well.
This is not the Ritz by any means, but for a reasonably priced, easy in and out hotel/motel, it's an amazing deal. I will definitely stay here again, eagerly. Especially after the more recent hotel disappointments and horrors that I've had, this hotel was truly a lovely experience.
