Stayed here for 4 days, as it was a pet friendly hotel. Was not very impressed with the services provided. Due to our short stay, housekeeping was NOT included(but can be had for an extra cost) and linens must be exchanged at the front desk. The 'continental breakfast' advertised, was in fact what they referred to as 'grab and go'-... More

We stayed here twice in November and like our other stays this year we were very happy. The rooms were clean and we like having a kitchen. the dishes, pans, coffee cups, etc are available for the asking and it is nice to know they have been through the dishwasher, not just rinsed off and put in the cupboard.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days with my son and husband... it was okay value for money.... however, one thing that wasn't advertised on Hotels.com where I booked it, is that it isn't a full service hotel. That means you don't have any housekeeping while you're there; if you want new towels, you can bring the used ones to... More

Spent the weekend here with my boyfriend and we had a blast! The rooms are very clean and cute. It has a whole kitchen inside the room which was awesome for making food.

We've stayed at this particular hotel four times now when we visit family in CA. The rooms are always clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is always eager to help you with whatever you need. When I forgot my hairdryer, they were right there to the rescue. Its appreciated. Smoking AND non smoking floors, and that's appreciated, too.

I stayed here in July 2016 for 4 days and thought it was good value for the money. Hotels are expensive in this area and this hotel was a good price for the area. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. There was a small kitchen that I didn't use, but it was clean.
