Very clean and spacious. Family friendly. Helpful/friendly staff. When we checked in, our room had a clogged sink. Staff quickly moved us and upgraded our room for the trouble. We are planning to make this one of our regular places to stay. Close to theme parks.

This is just an average hotel. Room is quite big for 2 queen bed room. However, furniture is old, bathroom door unable to close properly. Floor is dirty. Breakfast was just some cold bagel and frosted banana cake.

My 21 year old daughter and I didn't need a real fancy place as we weren't spending our vacation in California in our hotel. Perfect for what we needed. Staff were very friendly and eager to please.

If your plan is to find a reasonable place to stay while visiting Disney parks, this is a fair one. Clean, average room, nice staff. Breakfast is really poor. At night, when you come back to rest and you´re exausted, it´s really anoying when your key doesn´t open your room´s door, and it happened every single night. Besides that, average.

I read some decent reviews of this motel and to be honest everyone was quite nice to deal with, but this place needs work. I had reservations for several weeks and checked in about an hour after posted check in time. Had a 3rd floor room, not close to the elevator (previous review), and started to bring in our things....

We stayed here for 4 nights in July. Pat, at the front desk was very friendly and we were granted early check-in which was desperately needed. Upon entering the room the cleaner that was used left a very harsh smell which took forever to dissipate. There were footprints left on the bathroom floor. We showed a very hard working housekeeper... More

Let's face it, it's a very cheap hotel. It is the kind of place that makes you appreciate Holiday Inns. It's a little run down and the bath tub was pretty dirty. The elevator was interesting. The pool is pretty tiny. I felt safe in the area and it was a central location. We stayed here after spending a couple... More

I booked this hotel through Priceline for two queen beds, upon arrival I was given one queen and a roll out.
