HOT! No sir circulation
My check-in and check-out were nightmares. I've arrived a bit later than expected due to flight delay, and only by some lucky chance was let inside by security (the property hasn't contacted me whatsoever and didn't give any emergency instructions). Next morning, I wanted to do the proper check-in. Morning front desk hours are 8 - 12. 8:30, no one is present, I'm calling front desk number, it does redirect to whoever was supposed to work there, and the first answer was "maybe you can come back later?". No, I can't, I have plans in the downtown till midnight. I had to persuade the guy to get out of bed and check me in. Check-out is 11. 10:45, I'm going to the front desk with my key ready and baggage packed, no one is present. Calling the front desk number - goes to voice mail. Ask around - security doesn't know receptionist's phone number. No special instructions left for me. 30 minutes into my waiting, some guy called the owner who tried to locate the receptionist. 10 more minutes later I got my answer: the receptionist left to get some food and didn't come back, right around check-out deadline and just 1 hour before the break... This was the worst experience in all my journeys around the US and the world.
It's in San Diego. The location is great. There's TV/Kitchen in the communal room. They promise the Linens are industrial cleaned. I saw no bugs. They allow food deliveries. Ubers/Taxi know this place. The prices don't fluctuate.
I might take Bed Bugs over Sans WiFi Rooms. (I saw no bugs). Two plus hours late to check me in (as well as all the other guests. -no contact number posted). Unliked described, internet by check-in area only -not in rooms! Single Rooms have: no AC, bathroom, desk, table or T.V., random covers/curtains. Lobby's grafiti preservation might be a conscious decision. Street Parking only on Hawthorne (busy one way), easier to park elsewhere and Uber it in if you have luggage. With no Room Internet, and paid in cash, I was able to get a refund right when I asked for one -they were accommodating about it. Not sure if instant refund given if Credit Card is used.
It was quiet
Did not have lockers
