I loved the ease of the location - handy to get everywhere I needed. Breakfast was fab, and free - not always a combination you find. Complimentary Internet was as fast as you needed and room was well maintained and included microwave and fridge. Staff were all friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Nothing fancy about this hotel, but it was nice. The staff was very friendly and everything was clean. Our group had to leave very early before breakfast was served so someone from the hotel had "to go" breakfast bags for us. Very thoughtful!!!

There needs to be a lot of updates. There is a lot of old fixtures. The bathrooms stink and need shower benches for the handicap. Cleaning people need to check under beds for trash. Make sure appliances work.

Great hotel with friendly staff. Gorgeous surroundings and very safe environment. I loved how it was close to stores/restaurants. Nice outdoor amenities and well stocked complimentary breakfast! Good rate for the area in CA we were in, highly recommend staying here as it is updated and clean.

Great service! Loved the Staff. My stay was wonderful I totally felt wanted. Rooms were clean and well stocked everyday. Parking kind of far when hotel was busy and buses parked in a lot of prime parking spaces. Note, bus driver napping in bus cargo bay was not attractive.

Too much bleach used on sheets. Very strong smell. I have told front desk about this and their comment is that they will notify housekeeping. Situation has not improved in my last 3 stays. Hard to fall asleep with such strong odor
