Property was under renovation, but you really couldn't tell. Room was very nice and clean. Pool was deserted YEAH for us!! Staff was very friendly and efficient, Wireless was so- so, it worked, but not that fast, however it did its purpose. The hotel was very quaint and I really did like it. Thank you!

This is our third year in a row using this hotel. Once again we have a great stay, and the staff was more helpful than ever before. I can't say enough good things about the hotel and staff. We love the location right off the freeway.

I would rate this hotel at 5 stars but, they are currently under renovation construction. Do expect for things to be in slight disorder but still clean and neat.

The bathroom still had hair on the floor. The room smelled of stale smoke. The TV didn't work. The bed is old. The décor is outdated. Pleasant front desk when I checked in.
