For a hotel in this budget range, it's passable. Room was clean, location is good. Breakfast is self-service, the owners tend to be very lax topping up. They ran out of tea bags after 2 days and was not replenished by the time we left (stayed there for over a week). Even the juices ran out. Counter staff is rather... More

After our stay, I have a hard time understanding how this place has achieved such a high rating on this and other travel and hotel booking sites. For the price and rating, I thought this was going to be a very well maintained and updated old school motel. The rooms have been completely redone but are not well maintained at... More

We chose this hotel because of the parking and cheap rate. What you see is what you get. The room was clean. Breakfast was small, but better than nothing, The room served the purpose for our family on our way to Universal Studios, which is very close to this hotel. We had a non smoking room.

The location is good. The parking was excellent. The room was large, clean, and quiet. The breakfast was very basic, only cereal and bread, no fruit, eggs, yogurt, meat it even cream for your coffee. Our room (with 2 queen beds) was supplied with 1 washcloth and no hand towels. We left at 9 am and came back at 11... More

After reading multiple reviews, I decided to take a chance on this property, as I needed a cheap place to stay while attending a weekend conference. Very glad that I did! As the other reviews indicate, the exterior is nothing to write home about, but the inside is particularly pleasant and comfortable. The management obviously makes an effort, and it... More

I was very surprised. Rooms were very nice updated and clean. A very nice place to stay for the price. Outside looked clean and neat as well but inside rooms were very nice. More of a 4 star room. Bed was very comfy. I was pleased and will stay there again.

A basic hotel with no fancy amenities such as pools but good size rooms with a decent desk. Mine was on the first floor street side but from 10-7 it was nice and quiet. Mine had a microwave and mini frig. The included breakfast was basic but adequate: hot drinks, juice, cereal, bagels, toast and some pastries. In the same... More

This appears to be an older property but my room here was an updated standard King room. Granite counter top for the sink and granite enclosure for the shower/bath. Microwave and small refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. A good value for the money. It favorably compares to Best Western.

I read these reviews before we left, and I agree with most of them. The place is not impressive on the outside, but better on the inside. They've really tried, with deep burgundy carpets, crown molding and dark shiny furniture, including an armoire (so, no closet). But there are those signs--a big burn mark on the carpet, a cigarette stain... More
