While this is a very nice storage facility, they don't seem to care about their patrons. There have been multiple occasions where our spot was blocked or being used by someone else (without them knowing/noticing) and took days to resolve, causing us an inconvenience. Now, with a broken gate (will be at least 4 weeks) they have offered NO HELP/effort to make the situation right, and we have to rent space elsewhere due to their unwillingness to manually open a gate, and pay double for the month. It seems they just want us out to be able to rent to the next person for more money and that is all they care about. Very disappointing for the amount of money paid to rent a piece of concrete.

A-1 Self Storage on Spring St. has been great to store my excess belongings while my family and I get situated. It is very clean and the property is very safe and secure. Sarai was a pleasure to work with, she helped answer all my questions and concerns. She gave me a tour of the property and helped get my unit setup. Not to mention how easy it is to pay online and setup your account. Thank you A-1 for making me feel that my belongings are safe in your hands.

We needed a place to store some things from my mother's home when she moved into assisted living. The initial process of renting was quick and easy. The storage unit that we were assigned was dry, clean and bug-free. Anytime we had a question, any of the staff was able to provide immediate answers.We found an ad which allowed us to decrease our rent after we'd been renting for a year or two. We had to move from the unit we had to another, but everything in our unit was boxed and stacked, so it took only minutes and saved us money. You can expect that there will be a rent increase every year, so be prepared for that. We vacated our unit recently because we are moving to another state. Overall we had a good experience.

I rented a unit from this location for a little over a year while having a new home built. Due to construction delays my closing date changed a few times. when I explained my situation to Fran or Lulu as always they were willing to help me make a decision that would fit my changing situation. Fran and Lulu were always kind, courteous, and friendly. I cannot say enough about my gratitude and appreciation for their work and efforts. Moving and dealing with construction delays can be stressful. It was nice to see a kind and smiling face when I stopped by to discuss my changes or needed to get the number to my unit because I had forgotten it. I highly recommend this location to anyone who needs storage in the area.

Although no longer in the military, I still use storage facilities because my work requires me to travel 90% of the time. I shopped around for a storage facility in which I would feel secure while on the premises and left with the peace of mind my assets were just as secure. Fran is a superstar and explained everything to me and helped me navigate my storage needs and prevented me from my wants. Each time I come in, the customer service is over the top and I appreciate the staff for recognizing me as well. The hard assumption here is this, you may require storage from time to time. A-1 Self Storage in La Mesa is simply that good.

This is the second time that we rent a storage space at A1-Self Storage in La Mesa. The facility is clean and we didn't have any problems the last time we rented here so I hope that we don't have any issues this time too! (cross my fingers) ;) I went in on Sunday and was helped by Lulu who is just such a sweet lady and very professional. I felt very welcomed by her. She was very knowledgeable of the product that I was inquiring about. The only thing that I don't particularly like is the increase fees ( first increase is like at the 6 month's date and then again at your year mark, and then once a year after that) I don't mind the year increase but the 6 month increase I do. I recommend A-1 Self Storage, La Mesa to my family and friends!
