Dirty exterior. Improved interior. Front desk with a teenage group of greeters. Had to ask for the usual bottled water. Absolutely substandard WiFi connection with no help from the front desk. Used to be a great value. I'd pay more and avoid this place.

So far, I'm quite happy. Staff is friendly. Room is nice. Larger than the previous 3 rooms in the past few nights, from Monterey to Camarillo. I used to work in the hotel industry so I know what to expect. I don't expect people to give me a name when I check in. If ya get offered one, great. That... More

We stayed here for the night before our fishing trip at Newport. The room was clean, the beds are comfortable. There are plenty of parking space. We parked just infront of our room which was so convenient because we dont have to walk and carry our fishing gear. The AC, the TV and the lights are upgraded. Their website said... More

This was an awful stay, hookers hanging out in the parking lot, uniformed employees going into bushes while undoing their belts. NEVER AGAIN! Our room was not cleaned and they told us it would take at least 30 minutes to find someone to do it, did not offer us clean towels. Breakfast was disappointing.

Ok for the price. Staff was accomodating and changed rooms when bed was lumpy. Price charged reflects some lack of up keep on facility. Hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Road noise on West side of hotel is a bit high.

Staff was unfriendly, and unhelpful. Don't ask for a highchair cause they look at you like your crazy (I guess people with kids don't stay there) and if your room doesn't have a "do not disturb" sign, don't bother asking cause they will tell you "they're out" so just do what we did and write your own on a piece...

THE STAFF: Upon check in the front desk agent did not tell us her name or any of the hotel's amenities. I had to call and ask for breakfast times and a few other things. While on the phone I asked her if she knew of any bars that would be open around the area, she immediately said no and... More

Rooms are dingy, and smell like pee. The bath tub has pubic hair in it, and the sink leaked. The "Continental Breakfast" was a joke (cereal & bagels isn't breakfast) The only good thing about this hotel was the service.

The entire property is shabby and poorly maintained. My white dogs got dirty just walking in the parking area. We requested a fridge and microwave as I require a special diet and were unable to get them, and the girl on the front desk had no clue what the words bland diet even meant. The mattress, although comfy enough, had... More
