Stayed here because of the SD marathon. We had a king suite room #212 room was nice & roomy, however we were told that the couch is a pull out and it wasn't!!!! We had a nice balcony overlooking el Cajon, but the lounge chairs outside were filthy & dirty and we had to clean them before we were able to sit down.
The next day we were poolside and were constantly harassed by security because there's a private party and we were required to have wristbands. Unfortunately staff here doesn't seem to understand that guests at the hotel should have priorities or treated with a little courtesy. We were told that we needed to go to front desk to get our wristbands and then of course we needed our IDs! Such an inconvenience as none of us had IDs on us as we were just lounging by the pool!!!!
I'm very disappointed with my stay here and will never ever come back!!!
