They gave us a room already occupied. Then sent us across the hotel saying they were booked. When I asked why the internet was so bad (I needed to attend a conference class on it) they suggested to "go to Starbucks". Phone wasn't working, had to pick a towel at the front desk, toilette was clogged and the promised help...

She was very kind and helpful in securing a room for me near the office since, as a woman traveling alone, I felt safer. The patio and Olympic pool is very nice. Over all, it is rather dated. Ceiling had water stains. Over all, for the price, it was OK.

You can tell this is an older motel that has been renovated. The room was actually pretty good, and quiet considering the motel is not far from Highway 99. They have pet friendly rooms which I often need and are sometimes hard to find. The bar and restaurant are very old school and they do not serve free continental breakfast...

I love the comfortable beds, clean rooms, room size, and the free breakfast. The staff is very helpful plus they help us locating my light up mirror I forgot in our room. They saved it for us till we got back a few days later.

Hello, Although we have stayed at this resort multiple times, I am not sure about whether they allow pets. I do believe I remember that some guests did have a pet with them but not sure as to what extra charges they may have paid to allow their pets. I would suggest contacting the hotel directly to get the answer to your question. The front desk staff is very nice and will go out of their way to answer your questions.
