I take it this property has numerous types of rooms so one experience to the next could be very different just on that point alone. We had a corner room one bedroom "junior suite" facing the ocean and popular Scripps Park - can't beat the view and the small balcony was a super spot to enjoy a drink in the evening. I knew ahead of time that there wouldn't be AC (not unusual for the area) - they had a fan already going in the bedroom before we arrived, and with windows on 2 sides, it was very comfortable temperature wise. Yes it's an older building and many of the fixtures are original, but I found our room very well kept and clean and everything in good working order. It was nice to have the kitchenette, albeit tiny, we had enough room to keep snacks and drinks and make a few light lunches (the kitchen could use a few things such as a chopping board and better ice cube trays). We loved the daily breakfast on the rooftop - although the selection gets boring after a few days, it was fine (and they need someone to clean the tables more routinely). Kids really enjoyed the pool and we used the bbq area one night - another larger group held nightly family meals there which was nice to know you could do. We had no issues with parking and whenever we needed something it was taken care of. We had planned to stay 4 nights but added on a 5th since the location is so convenient to other parts of San Diego. After being a guest for 5 nights I would have thought the front desk might remember me, but each time I went down there I was asked if I was checking in - I know they see a lot of faces, but it would have gone a long way to have been asked how our visit was going, and it was always to busy to ask for advice on the area. All in all, a very good stay though - loved how easy it was to walk around the corner to shops and restaurants, or take the stairway a few doors down which brings you right up onto Prospect Street.
