Cockroaches
Not for families. The management needs to decide if it is a pool party hotel for drunk college students or families. Family suite rooms are tired. Keep your shoes on - dirty carpets. Pool was the only good point. But full of drunk students. The best point were the two cockroaches we found in the room. Probably a great hotel in its day. Not now.

Disappointing
My husband and I booked a weekend getaway to san diego this past weekend. I sadly woke up sick on Friday but we still ended up going because we didn't want to pay for something that we couldn't use (24 hour cancellation policy which I get). The heater wasn't working when we got there, we tried to call but the phone kept showing as busy. I went to sleep that night with extra clothes on and blanket on me but still was cold and sadly I woke up even more sick Saturday morning due to me freezing pretty much all night. In the morning, we went down stairs and told the front desk our heater needs to be fixed....no one ever showed up! Again we tried calling, every single line we tried was showing as busy. So I got up and went down to the front desk (someone else was there now) and told her how our phone and heater isn't working and how I have been down here before and no one came up to fix it in the past 5 hours. I told her I have a fever and need it fixed before I end up pneumonia. She finally had someone bring us extra blankets and a portable heater. Finally once our room was warm I decided to take a shower...boy what a bad decision. The water wouldn't stay at one temperature...every couple of seconds it went from super hot to freezing...back to super hot then again to freeing. Pretty much I couldn't shower! I couldn't wait to check out and head home to take a decent shower.
