Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Really disappointed certainly not up to Marriott standards . Cafe wasn’t open , gym closed , pool closed , room ok , bathroom needed work . Toilet seat ready to fall off toilet paper holder falling off . Shower could use a deep cleaning . Did not expect this from a newer property . No house keeping . Had to ask at front desk for dry towels . The bed pillows are feather and the feathers poke threw the cases so it feels like stickers .For the price I expected quite a bit more . Then the water was shut off from 10 pm to 6 am due to a broken pipe . I have always had a wonderful experience with Marriott but not the El Cajon location .
