I did like the staff and I did like the sun deck with a hot tube on the top floor. Also, the breakfast was good. And the location is very good.
I was not happy with the room I got as I had a very different room last time, that was a room on the 5th floor with a balcony and bigger and brighter room. This time I got a room with windows facing care port and noisy. The next day I changed to a similar room as I had last time, but I had to pay extra money for that. I think it is very bad when the only window you have is facing carpark, and then for sure with no interesting views, it is almost like having no window at all. Also, the safe in that room did not work.
Decided to stay here during a conference for work then also planned to stay the following weekend for a concert...VERY Bad idea...i wouldn't even give it one star. Not safe #1- The picture do not match what is there. #2- This is a shady motel NOT a hotel. #3-My daughter and I were put in a room where the hall had no lighting. Did not feel safe at all #4-The security lock wouldn't latch and would come open and when the door was locked there was a half inch leeway when you pulled on the door. Light the whole thing was loose. #5-I called front desk and asked for a new room. Reception said only if maintenance gives the ok. We waited and I called back to ask what the maintenance person looked like. She said he had a uniform with the logo. #6-We heard someone trying to get into our room. I yelled asking who it was and a man yelled back something in Spanish. I looked out the peep hole and saw a man in a white tank top and a shirt with the 2 last buttons buttoned. Apparently this was the maintenance man but couldn't tell because the hallway was to dark...AGAIN DIDNT FEEL SAFE AND WAS TERIFFIED BY THEN. #7-I reluctantly opened the door let him know what was wrong and it was apparent he didnt understand a word I said. I then called reception and said we are coming down for a new room. #8-No one let us know during checking the hotel restaurant was closed. #9-Got our new room and the sink and faucet wasnt clean. It had sticky stuff on it. #10-There was mold in the shower. We check out a day early and could not get a refund for our second day. Then made sure to cancel our weekend stay right away. My daughter and I did not feel safe at all. Not a good hotel...MOTEL...at all.
Stayed with a friend for a place to crash after a festival in town. This hotel has a perfect location - right in the heart of little Italy & close to downtown and freeways. So many great restaurants in the neighborhood. A lot of cool seating areas to hang out on the roof before going out. I wouldn't call their pool an actual pool, its definitely a big hot tub but I prefer that anyways!
Parking on site is kinda pricey for guests, we ended up parking at one of the airport lots nearby which are cheaper. Check in at 3pm is a little late considering check out is at 11am...this was somewhat inconvenient but the hosts at the front desk were very accommodating by holding our stuff until much later in the evening.
Restaurant had an excellent view of SD. Bar was excellent and bartender wasn’t slippin on the bottomless mimosas. Location was a good walking distance to Waterfront Park. Pool/spa was a cute size to hangout out.
Water pressure in the shower wasn’t the greatest. Sink drained very slowly.
The staff was wonderful The valet was absolutely amazing!!!
