Won't resemble the pictures
This hotel is in the process of renovating some rooms. Any of the nice pictures you see are the renovated rooms. You won't be staying there. Instead, you'll be given an old room with holes in the walls, power outlets hanging out of the walls by their wires, and a "king bed" that's just two twin frames and a thin queen mattress on top. No headboard. Minimal sheets and pillows. Curtains that don't block out any light from the busy street. I had to beg for a better room, and was eventually given a new room the next day. By "better" I mean it had no holes in the walls, but it still had visible mold spreading across the bathroom walls and a clogged shower drain. I booked through VRBO and there was very little that the hotel was willing to do to improve my stay because of that. The location of the hotel is great. Look for any other option nearby, but do not stay at the San Marino unless you can guarantee what kind of room you will have.

We arrived for a month on Feb 24th, Everything was wonderful. Then thing slowly was turning to worst. One thing that did not help was this bartender named Aguill. I always tip good but sometime skip a tip. This Aguill bartender would shake his tip bowl every time I went to get a drink. I though It was just me but everyone had notice him also. I confronted him on it and he gave me a hard time from the rest of my stay. then came the Corona virus alert. We were quarantine for our last 2 weeks. food just got worst same food as lunch for supper. A first was a Hot dog winner soup. wow not cool. we ended our stay hopping to be able to leave. We could not take it anymore. As for the rest of the staff they were fantastic. Waiters were the best and very kind to us. Front desk gave us very good service.
