Okay, by looking at my other property reviews, you know I generally stay in 4 and 5 star hotels. But, I needed to be in San Diego and all hotels in the metropolitan area were literally sold out! This property is in an almost idea location, plus includes FREE parking. Where else in ANY downtown core can you receive free parking? Front desk staff, and manager Daisy, were incredibly personable, friendly, and helpful. The room was small, fairly modern for a Motel 6, and reasonably clean. The bathroom was impeccably clean and so was the hall sink/mirror area. I take issue with the following. Detail cleaning is needed to make this property shine and receive a higher rating. For example, housekeepers could focus on one additional task per week--ie, cleaning corners of floors throughout the room, cleaning inside the towel holders, and so on. Next, the room smelled great and so did the lobby. But, the corridors had some musty smell I could not identify. Heck, Westins and other properties use electronic generated scents in their lobbies and corridors, so why not here, too? There is a beautiful outside area beyond the check in desk with great vegetation. Capitalize on this by enhancing it with a bit of mood music, some simple furniture, and so on. All in all, the property is decent and I would stay there again again for $59 to $89, considering neighboring hotels are in the hundreds of dollars. I really believe Daisy and her team could easily, affordably, and sensibly turn this property into a premiere Motel 6. This structure is an old apartment/hotel building and has some character, unlike modern hotel styles. The convenience store outside does attract some locals, but all were kind and unthreatening. This IS a downtown location, and right down the road by the theatrical center and government buildings people sleep outside all night, so this area is actually BETTER than those areas which are right across the street from several four and five star properties.
