My hubby and I found this little place online for our quick 3-day trip to San Diego last month, and we were so excited! All of the pictures were great and we were super happy it was so close to the beach! However, once we got there, we were horrified! We found a place to park our rental car in the alley behind the place, and there were at least 3 bums going through the trash cans. Then it just kept getting worse once we saw the room! The floors were sticky. There was a gross looking stain on the comforter that looked like they had unsuccesfully tried to use bleach on. The window lock in the bathroom was broken. The deadbolt on the front door was broken. And worst thing of all was all of the nasty mold in the bathroom. It was everywhere! I called the front desk, and the man I ended up speaking with was very nice, and when I told him that there was no way we would feel safe staying there or leaving all of our stuff there while we were gone during the day, he said he wouldn't charge us. And so far, I don't see a charge on the credit card. But as nice as he was, there is just no excuse for dirty floors and mold in the bathroom so bad it looked like it was moving. I suppose if you were kids in your 20's that just needed a place to crash after surfing all day, and all you had with you was one change of clothes, then this place might be perfect. But for us, no way!
