I liked the property and staff working for the Hotel. They were always ready to assist/help out, very nice and courteous. There was nothing I did not like about the property, not the staff. It was a great place and atmosphere, and if I ever return to San Diego, it would a pleasure to go back to Found Hotel on Grapes Ave and State St. :) Thanks for everything!! It was a great time!!!
