I can't understand in some of the reviews I've read people have been saying its quiet and you can get sleep here. Well when I was there it wasn't that way. There was Mexicans partying all through the night listening to loud mexican music, doing burn-outs in the parking lot and employees here ignore it. I got so weary of... More

There was aparently construction to my dismay when we arrived. The headboards had about an inch of dust on them. The towels were mismatched and dirty an d stained and no wash clothes were available. The covers had cigarrette burns and stains and black hairs on them. What a crap hole. Get your place together if you ever want business.

The Northgate is conveniently located off Interstate 8. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortabe, but spartan, providing a well deserved sleep for a weary traveller. No large chain ameneties here, but certainly not sleazy. Given the same circumstances, I'd stay there again.
