Visited over the 4th of July weekend and thankfully I was only there for 2 nights versus 3. When we arrived it was past 1:30am and the front desk was closed. There was a note by the door to call for check in and emergencies. Once i checked in and got to my room i was surprised to see how... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com because we needed a place to stay that wasnt expensive and we just needed a room to crash in. I wasnt willing to pay $80 a night or more for a Super 8 or something like that, so I was thankful we found this place when we booked. Check in is at 3:00 and... More

All we wanted was a nice comfortable room to stay a couple of nights before we headed to our next destination and we found this lodging online. It looked pleasant with reasonable pricing. On arrival we were assigned a room on the ground floor with car lots right infront as we had heavy luggage. We were given a room at... More

We made our reservations for an upgraded theme suit, and paid the upgrade price. When we checked in they say "oh you wanted a room with a spa tub". They tried to put us in a standard room that had a four poster bed and a shower and tub unit, but hey the tub had jets. WRONG! My husband went... More

We booked the one facing the courtyard through Tingo. I don't remember seeing any courtyard. First the good things: People at the reception were nice. The room came with continental breakfast which was really good. Not over the top but quite adequate. We just needed a place to stay so this satisfied our requirements. Things we dint like: bathroom had... More

We stayed here one night on our way to San Francisco because the price was right. The room was small and it had a four-poster bed (which made the room seem even smaller) but it was very romantic! The bathroom was huge in comparison - almost as big as the bedroom. The Inn was very conveniently located but I would... More

Unbeatable for the price, clean and close to everything. Staff are nice and helpful. They even contact you before your arrival to straighten the reservation and entertain our requests. Someone said the room is small, so we are a bit worried about storage space. Turns out the room has plenty of storage for our 6-day trip. The room is clean... More

So hubby and I decided to get away and found something saying theme rooms. Hmm could be interesting. This place is older but I think it adds to the charm of it. Close to downtown for dining and gambling. This place is split in 2 lots we stayed in the back area near the chapel which was quiet and I... More

The room looked pretty enough, with a nice four poster bed and quaint decor, however the bed was really uncomfortable and the AC unit in the bedroom itself didn't work, there was however a fan unit in the bathroom which provided ice cold ventilation, but this had only two settings and even the lowest cool setting was like sitting in...

Nice price, clean, close to everything and staff very nice. Did not stay in a themed room....thought about it, however, decided to save the few dollars for a bottle of wine. Continental Breakfast was what it should be...juice, yogurt, cold cereal, bread, etc.. Lite sleeper...road noise. Usually sleep with white noise (fan). No fan in room...thank goodness for Internet connection.... More
