This will be the fourth time we have stayed here. Location to our family is excellent (and why we kept coming back). This ended with this trip. Two of the three previous times we stayed, we noticed the "mildew-y" smell and said something to the front desk. There is really nothing they can do, but we wanted to point it... More

We stayed here before meeting the ferry for Catalina island. Our room had everything we needed. Linens were crisp and clean. The room was very nicely laid out and very clean. They allowed us to park our car there while we were at Catalina island with no extra charge. When we arrived back to the hotel to pickup our car... More

Having just spent a week at this hotel I can honestly state that it's comfortable enough and the excellent staff pushes my rating up a point for their hospitality. I wouldn't call it tired but it's not new. The grounds are well maintained and the rooms clean enough. The overall Inn layout is the problem to me as you can... More

I have stayed at other Residence Inns and this one does not quite meet the quality threshold. Bed linens were old and had cotton pill bugs like the sheets were dirty and old. They were promptly changed but not something one wants to deal with after a long day.

We got a 2 BR unit which provided the space we needed. It was a little difficult lugging suitcases up the stairs to the unit. The parking lot was not close either. We noticed the light/fan unit didn't work and the icemaker was also on the blink. They came to replace the icemaker. We heard a dog in the unit... More

First time staying at this Residence Inn, overall experience was very good! We stayed in a two bedroom/two bathroom suite...very roomy! The beds were comfortable and the room was mostly quiet even though the hotel is next to a freeway. The breakfast served had a lot of variety...some thing for everyone. There are few things that weren't very good. 1)The... More

Had an overall great stay at this hotel. Breakfast was good and staff was friendly. Much room available in the Penthouse Suite; enough for the girls weekend.
