PROS:Location - Downtown San Diego; near public transportationUtilities included, tenants only pay rentFully furnishedLaundry facilities on-siteFully furnished kitchenWeekly/Bi-weekly cleaning service for kitchen and bathroomFree internet/wi-fiComputer and printer located on-site for useCable and television includedCONS:Location - although it is located in a convenient area, it is located near San Diego City College and an adult rehabilitation center. Meaning, there are people around almost at all hours.Noise - Little to no insulation inside the building. Meaning, you can hear street noise, conversations and phone rings, chairs moving through the walls and ceilings. It basically feels as though you're living outdoors. In addition, it is located near a busy intersection and you'll hear cars and people constantly. If you're sensitive to excessive noise, this is not the place for you. Even if you're just essentially renting to have a place to sleep and eat, you might not be able to sleep because of the incessant noise. Facilities - Laundry is only coin operated and costs 2.25 for wash and 1.00 for dry.RATING:2/5 Although the amenities are a huge plus, the noise can be unbearable.
Staff recently entered a friends room while he was not home with no notification, no 24 hour notice, no emergency - nothing. This is simply unacceptable for any reason and makes me worry that this could happen to anyone. Be aware that staff here may not respect your personal privacy.In addition, the giftcard situation that everyone was promised is still a mess. Went to pick mine up and they tried to give me a $200 giftcard while a friend who signed the exact same lease (same apartment, same meal option, same parking option, leases signed within 2 minutes of each other) as me received a $350 card. I talked to the manager, but that was no help and she didn't know why we would not receive the same amount and refused to make it right or even explain why they were different. Not happy with the situation at all and everything seems like an unorganized mess right now.
