Great Staff, especially Robert and Dee and the desk. On top of everything, courteous, pleasant, well informed. Robert goes out of his way to be the very best at his job. If I knew he was at the desk, I would return anytime. Our room was comfortable and roomy albeit a bit dated.
Unfortunately, I had the displeasure to listen to one of the owners talking loudly in the office while I was waiting at the desk. It is clear that the owner has no understanding of employment law, or good long term business thinking. His plan seemed to be to more concerned with cutting costs by taking unfair advantage of his excellent housekeeping staff and employees and probably violating California labor law. This is a hotel that is great and has even greater potential, but I can only recommend it with reservations because of the cavalier nature of the person in charge. Add value in business, treat your employees fairly, generously, and with respect, run the hotel like it is the best, and strive to be better. Then this would be great.
We liked the very large comfortable room, the kitchen and the two TV's. The bathroom was also a very good size.
The location was central to the San Diego area.. The staff was friendly and helpful and the suite was large.
The towels were frayed and the chairs for the dining area were dirty.
Excellent service, time share type suite. We only stayed 1 night on business trip.
- I liked the suite size (2 bedrooms and aliving room); I also liked the mountain view from the master room.
Little improvement is needed for the breakfast, and to should be extended tp 10 am rather than 9.
