I was surprised to see how large the room was with the single king and hot tub. However, there were way too many downsides with this hotel to make up for it, and I'm generally not very picky. All I wanted was a place to sleep and maybe watch tv. Well, the AC doesn't work for one. The room was...

This hotel was so nice and clean. My family loved it. We stayed here to go to Disneyland. It was only a 20 minute drive. We especially loved to hot breakfast. Someone cooks it right in front of us so it was nice and fresh. It had scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausage and bacon. They even served Sunkist oranges. My...

After we left our room, housekeeping came. Upon our return, our son's water bottle had something extra added to it. It was now brown instead of clear. Housekeeping couldn't keep a straight face while I tried to find out what happened. Omar, the housekeeping manager kept laughing. He didn't take the situation serious until I started writing down all their...

Clean room, friendly staff, great variety at breakfast. Great price. I'm quite picky when it comes to mattresses and pillows and these beds were super comfy. We'd definitely stay there again! Thanks!!

Surprised. Just a stopping point. Hotel was very nice and clean. There was a little bit of wear on the bathroom in our room - but just aesthetics. Room was spacious, beds excellent. We had 2Q and sofa bed setup - a suite. Only thing I didn't like re the room was that the bathroom sink was on the main...

This hotel has a great location with easy access. We loved having 2 rooms so our daughter could sleep in. There was a soundproof door between the rooms and a TV in each. The staff was friendly, very clean, comfortable beds. Really have no complaints at all. Would stay here again.

Two TVs in two rooms separated by a closing door. Good turn down service. Great location. Close driving distance to everything and super short walking distance to restaurants McDonald's and convenience store. If you're looking for the best possible value this is it. If you are looking for something high end keep looking. Would absolutely return again.

When I walked in I was seriously very surprised. A king size suite was perfect for my husband and I on our getaway. Everyone in the staff was super friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend This hotel to my friends.

It was a decent stay for the price. I guess the only real thing I have to sort of complain about, is the view. Our view was of an old, unkempt parking lot. Looked like Eastern Europe in a bad way. The free breakfast is always something I look forward too at least once during a stay, especially hot breakfast....
