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!!!

Srinu, thank you for the valuable feedback. Once the sink was reported to be clogged our housekeeping team immediately rectified the problem and refilled the body soap. It was found that another guest had clogged the sink up in a shared dormitory while shaving. I do hope you enjoyed your stay at our property. Safe travels!

Very close to Little Italy:). Parking within community is free. One of the things we were concerned about was the smell in the room. We had to open our windows to let fresh air in so as to eradicate the appalling smell each day in the room.

This was my first experience having a room with a shared bathroom, like a college dorm or hostel. It wasnt bad at all. The hotel has a nice little secluded alcove to relax in outside, and although the breakfast offered is small and simple, the coffee was good.
