It's the people that make a difference here. They are warm and friendly, always helpful and treat you like they really care. The rooms are always spotless, the grounds are clean and well maintained. There is plenty of parking and good freeway access. You will not be disappointed.

Good value for the cost and convenient to restaurants and the freeway. We were very impressed with the quality of the room and the cleanliness of the entire area. It seemed more like a studio apartment than a hotel room with a full kitchen and lots of room to spread out. The breakfast was very good with an abundance of...
