Stayed at hotel for one night while traveling. The front desk clerk was very friendly and efficient. Good location for staying one night as we were passing through. Be aware that there is a train track close by and when the train is blowing its whistle, it gets quite loud in the hotel room. Room was very clean and comfortable.... More

A cheery staff welcomes you and it only gets better from there. This place is very clean. My room was really good and I slept well. A freight train sometimes comes through during the night and wakes you up but that's ok. It's not the hotel's fault. This is a very nice hotel and I'll be back soon. Stay here,... More

Heading back from a long stay in Southern California, and decided to stop for the night. Service was friendly and helpful. The Hotel itself was nicely decorated, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was check out was at 11:00 and room service was knocking on the door at 8:45. They were very friendly and... More

We wanted to break up our drive from northern California to Los Angeles so we picked this hotel right off of highway 99. Very nice hotel, clean and comfortable. The staff was super friendly and helpful with helping us find a restaurant for dinner and then a Starbucks in the morning. I just noticed this hotel's address is listed as... More

Stayed only one night while driving between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Strangely, breakfast was not included and had to be ordered off a menu which diminished the value of the offering somewhat.

Our experience at this hotel was excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location is near the freeway and easy to find and it is easy to enter their parking lot which isn't always the case when traveling. In the morning we had an excellent breakfast with the pleasant surprise that... More

I've been coming here for years for my commutes from San Francisco and Los Angeles where the property has become tired and worn and ugly decor (not HIX lobby design). I was so happy to see the total change. Very nice lobby and nicer breakfast room. HIX must be trying to demand that all of their properties keep up with... More

Enjoyed my stay here. Room was comfortable and large. Staff was friendly and polite. One negative about the room was the proximity to the freeway. You could hear cars in the room. On the other hand, it was located convenient to the freeway and local entertainment. A good positive on the Room was the pool area and barbecue area. They... More
