Do not believe that picture that they have put everywhere online. It looks like a nice high rise building. Yeah....when you pull up to it, you're like Oh no....it's very worn down and old looking, NOT new at all. Parking s----...you have to park across the street in parking garage that you contanstly have to make a u-turn to get into everytime. Blegh.
More importantly, the staff there is very unfriendly and look as if they are all depressed. When I asked for directions, she didn't even look up at me, just handed me a card with directions on it, and continued to stare at the computer screen with her head rested on her fist.
My main quabble was that I did not know anything about San Diego when I came here. If you don't either...DON'T STAY IN NATIONAL CITY if you don't have to. This town is ghetto and we were driving down the street looking for a decent place to eat (There are none) and we couldn't pass the stop light because there were 2 cars in front of us with males getting out and beating each other to the ground. All the gas stations there have bullet proof glass around their cashiers. We also went to the nearest mall (Chula Vista mall) to see a movie and the mall was getting ROBBED...so we couldn't even go in. Just horrible. It sounds like I am exaggerating, and I wsh I was.
National City is also farther away from the main attractions like Sea World, Zoo, Balboa, etc. It is very close to Mexico, however.
The common balcony was kind of cool, you are starring at some sort of Naval base- if you like that sort of thing. Room accomodations were Not clean, but not dirty...but I guess that's what you get for a cheap paid room.
