Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

Very small and not clean. Bed sheets still had hair

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It was not even close to its pictures. The room was big enough to fit a queen bed and nothing more. The bedding was very old. The guest in the room which was above our room took a shower at 2 am, the sound of the shower was as loud as an engine of airplane. We asked them to change our room the day after and they sent us to another hotel!

  • Disliked: Amenities

Liked the look.refurbishing has been partially done. No water bottles, clock or phone. Only one wash cloth...it just missed being adequate in amenities.

Location is perfect to everything in Point Loma and the Marina, but there are ample other places to stay where you don’t have to sacrifice cleanliness and hygiene. There were multiple fruit flies in the room as well as a large dead cockroach. The walls and bed sheets were dingy.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This hotel was a disappointment. The bed linen was dirty, headboards damaged, cold tile flooring, dirty, no towels in the room and then when we asked them to stock the room with towels while we were out to dinner there still were none when we returned. We finally got towels by walking down to the lobby ourselves only to discover that there were stains and holes in the towels! The room had none of the standard amenities such has coffee maker, iron, blow dryer, etc. It had a funky smell to it as well. The shower was rusty. We kept telling ourselves "its just one night!" We could'nt wait to get out of there the next morning! Do not book this hotel!
