After reserving this over the phone for $190 a night they then whacked me for $20 a night to park and $13 for WiFi. The latter charge was dropped after I questioned it. But then $2 for coffee in the lobby? You'd think full-serve would mean "everything included".
Then there was the noise. The refrigerator was so loud I unplugged it and the heater so loud I turned that off. But I could get rid of the guy next door who had the TV on when I was working and that sound came under the door clear enough to almost follow the plot.
And then there was the sanitation. An unclean toilet and a large piece of plastic in the ice cream I ordered for dinner. The Olive Oil ice cream otherwise was very good, although the service was kind of slow for being so uncrowded.
Oh, I forgot the worst thing--they left the alarm clock set for 5:30 without telling me! And the stupid thing doesn't have a night mode so I had to have my iPhone by my bedside to see what time it was when I woke up in the middle of my time-shifted night. Not to mention that the reading light bulb was out.
There you have it--my first TridAdvisor review. Try Hampton Inn next door or there's a Clarion a block from the beach in Del Mar. Great little town, btw.
