We stayed here 4 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's across the street from a really noisy freeway, so we kept our windows closed and the fan turned on for white noise, and the outside noise didn't bother us. Our room was clean and roomy, although the sheer curtain was torn and needed to be replaced. We...
