I had to stay in this hotel only for its proximity to an event. I had 2 rooms, both had the same problems. Their bed frames have areas that are exposed with extreme "razor sharp" surfaces. On my 1st night as I was removing my slippers next to the bed, my foot rubbed gently next to the bed frame and cut my little toe deeply and left an uncontrollable flow of blood. I called the front desk who behaved like there was no urgency to check their guests room. I had to request a first aid kit, I also requested maintenance to follow up the following a. m. They didn't, I requested for the mngr. to see us, but only did after the last day and was arrogant instead of being helpful. Another member of the family cut their shin in the other room on the night before our departure, the response was equally passive.
This place only provided housekeeping in one of our rooms, but the room located in the end of the hallway did not get housekeeping. This hotel is being managed by an inexperienced individual and their poor management of their hotel reflects to some of the lower level staff.
The location is not desirable for families, in all 3 nights there were intoxicated people in the parking lot, when brought to their attention, still no security was seen at night and thought that this added to the hotels flair???
The average price per night is not worth it, if the breakfast is it's only selling point. The area is loaded with BF places, so one can stay in another place.
The Chula Vista location is far better than this place. They both serve BF, but the management is more attentive and is a child friendly location.
