I liked the location and access to public transportation. Regular coffee was available 24 hrs. But no decaf and no artificial sweetener. No milk or bread offered at breakfast. Guests are suppose to wash their own dishes AFTER using, which could be a health hazard if washing was not sufficient. There was a dish washer for staff to use. But I never saw it used. Lots of bathrooms is a plus.

We appreciate your feedback! Thank you! We apologize that we did not make it known that we can brew decaf coffee upon request, we will take note and make sure to inform everyone from here on out. :) We use a commercial dishwasher to wash and sanitize all our guests dishes; but to save energy we will only run the dishwasher when we have a full load of dishes. Of course guests are more than welcome to rewash any of their dishes before use. Thank you for choosing HI Point Loma!!
