    Very convenient to I-5; we were able to quickly get to all the attractions listed below. Comfortable--cushy bed and pillows; clean and service was great. Free parking. Pet friendly. Accommodations good for handicapped. Complimentary breakfast (eggs, sausage/bacon, breads of all kinds, home fried potatoes, waffles/pancakes, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit, juices, etc). Great for families, teens, couples of all ages, large groups. Not for partying groups, however.
