We liked the property but there were a few things that would have made it better, such as : a counter top or dresser to place hygiene items or clothes in bathroom and a suitcase stand or two for the bedrooms, and maybe two more comfortable chairs in room. Plus we could hear everything going on in the room next to us. their TV was very loud. There was a big space under the connecting door and we had to stick a towel there so we could sleep. The store next door is very very over priced and one man working there was kind of snide and rude.

I stay at The Atwood whenever I am in San Diego for a day or two. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms have always been clean. The price is great for the location and the location is ideal for access to the Hillcrest area as well as anything near Mission Valley. There is a great restaurant at the site as well as a liquor store that carries just about anything you could buy at a 7-11. However, twice now I have been given a room that had no heat. Staff supplied me with a portable heater that was designed to heat a room 8x8 not 20x50. The furnished hair dryer puts out more heat. Also some of the vinyl planks are loose and need attention.

We were in San Diego for a reunion, the price of the motel was just right. The staff was so helpful, they gave us help in getting around San Diego and to where we need to be.

The location was perfect for our needs. I have stayed at this property several times and have never had a bad experience. It changed names and affiliation since my last visit, however I was not disappointed. Look forward to my next visit

Only three pillows in the room for a king size bed, was told when i asked for an extra that there were no extras on property. Wasn't told that there was construction going on starting at 7am right behind our room. I would have turned on the fan and closed the window; instead I was woken up hours earlier than i wanted on the one vacation i get this year. Also, the tub was broken so i was unable to take a bath, and the hot tub was closed due to water quality. Was told there was no manager on site for the next two days when i asked to speak to one.

The property is kind of dingy. It is not terrible, but there are visible stains on the walls and curtains. It could really use a proverbial face lift.
