don' t stay here!

First noticed a big black smear across the TV screen in the lobby...ugh...then in my room I couldn' t see since 3 light bulbs were missing or out..then noticed centipedes and their nests all over the bathtub...Took photos and showed the desk clerk on check out. She gasped! Then when taking a shower , the shower had a continuous high pitched squeal...and more than anything I was really looking forward to a good night's rest...and it was without a doubt the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in....and I often frequent Morel 6, Super 8 and Comfort Inn....they were more if a hotel than the San Juaquin....I called today to speak with the general manager and her 3 hour " meeting" I guess is more important than customer relations. The desk clerk on Sunday morning was appalled , wrote everything down and told me she would pass it on on Monday to the GM...never heard from them yet. A horrible run down abs shabby less than a motel hotel!!

BAIT AND SWITCH

When I checked in they informed me that the room I was getting was an "older" room I could upgrade for almost double the price. It sure wasn't like the room in the pictures!! The room smelled, had stains on the carpet and on the ceiling. The televisions were older than me (I'm 50). The remote did not work that well. The grounds were nice, but the room was ancient! The staff was friendly!

Room 306 at San Joaquin Hotel

The room was big, but it was disgusting and filthy. Below is a list of items that we came across; 1. carpet was stained and filthy 2. toilet paper roll was half used and room did not have an extra one in it 3. bathroom sink was backed up 4. toilet ran all night 5. absolutely zero water pressure in shower 6. Both TV's in the room were made in the late 70's 7. outlets in room were all loose and half of them not working 8. lightbulbs in room were all dim watts, had to go buy my own lightbulb if I actually wanted to see 9. Went to front desk for more towels, they didn't have any available there

Pleasant place to stay

It's definitely no 5-star, but overall clean with nice room size. Could use updating. If hey remodeled the rooms with more contemporary appointments, this would be a real gem.

Nice Chic Hotel

I arrived 2 hours early and was allowed to check in and was upgraded without asking to a deluxe suite. The room was clean, the staff friendly, lots of nice restaurants nearby. The only reason I couldn't give them all five stars is because the TV sets were probably from the 1980's. Would definitely recommend and will stay again.
