I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in all sorts of hotels from high end five star to creepy, sketchy off the highway motels. Okay, so that's that. All of those past times, I accepted what I paid for and moved on. Now this place wow....trash on the stairwell, people just hanging out shirtless at 1130pm, just too much going on and nothing appealing ...so my friend and my mom and I try to hurry into the room...and the door didn't even open until my friend had to push and kick it open. We walk in not expecting much but when we turn out the lights , the reality was more disgusting than we could have imagined. We were staying for 2 nights but by the time we scoped the room out and got settled I wanted to ditch right then .
Oh the discoveries made....really dirty couch , a trash can with previous guest's garbage ( gross!!!!!!), comforter looked unwashed and it was sticky from spilled soda and there was a dark stain. The smell in the room is so musky and dusty, even the bedding reeks of it .i didn't even want to see the kitchen . Old , rusty appliances and the bed bugs and the smell in here is sticking to me. Then of course the tub is a safety hazard with no foot grip and is so slippery and toilet is stained and rusty ( and small!!?) and doesn't flush well.
So what did I do on the first hour here ? My friend and I quickly re did our weekend trip and booked a hotel in LA and decided to change the course of this trip completely.
And we decided for the Rip Off price of 168.00 for 2 nights, I will take the hit for 2nd night and go farrrrr away from
here...I will pretend this was a really bad gambling experience and ditch the second night.
Sorry San Diego !
*****- I have never written a review before for a hotel and I really had to for this ... Also, I have never ditched a hotel after paying for it- so just imagine how bad it really is here .
