San Mateo, California
Reviewed 28 January 2015

The internet was poor. The bathroom toilet wasn't flushing in one position and was cramped. The hotel is showing it's age.

Boston, Massachusetts
Reviewed 20 January 2015

Basically we liked this inn—nice room, great bed, nice pool and Jacuzzi, good breakfast. Our objection is that, having booked through a well-known "blind" service, we were told that, even though the Inn was half empty, they had to assign us to the cheapest room next to the highway. That's a terrible policy, treating us as 2nd class citizens and...

The room was spacious with frig and microwave. Close to freeway but did not notice the noise. Breakfast had a variety of rolls, bagels, toast, cereal, boiled eggs and beverages. Landscaping was a bonus.

We traveled to Santa Barbara for a sporting event for one of our kids and we stayed here because it was chosen for the team. We found the common areas of the property were fairly nice but we found the rooms small and sub-standard.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this property over the past four years. Four years ago, it was apparent to me that it was time to update, however, as of today, they haven't done much. New flat screen TV's and a renovated lobby are about it. The room I was in was clean overall, however, the A/C...

Overall my stay was fine. I have learned to take sanitary wipes to this property. The cleaning staff needs to be more diligent regarding walls (bathroom) and doors, furniture. No one likes to have other people's "stuff" smeared on walls, doors and furniture. The bed was fine as were the linens. The property is very convenient to my place of...
