Area has gone downhill - very transient. Skyline view was a tiny window, no service at the pool, the power went out and had to get ready in the dark, tv channels didn’t work, the self parking was in an unsafe looking garage…

The room was great. Patio furniture was basic and not inviting. For three days, nobody came and cleaned the room, brought fresh towels and supplies. The female staff were great. The men were less than friendly. Our garbage from our dinner take out, on our first night after traveling all day, sat either in our room or the hallways for 3 days. For the price of this hotel, and a splurge for us, we were severely disappointed.

I’ve stayed at several Kimptons around the country, which is why I felt comfortable choosing the Kimpton Palomar San Diego. Unfortunately, it’s situated in an undesirable area where the height of Southern California’s homelessness crisis is on full display. For what I’ve come to expect from a Kimpton, the room was just “ok”. The carpet was stained. The balcony, with its meager furnishings and depressing paint job, left much to be desired. I will say that the staff were lovely and went out of their way to be accommodating.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Zero customer service, no amenities, no restaurant, no place to have a breakfast, no room service, facilities smell, etc. should really be a 3 star hotel and not worth the money.
