This property appears to have been upscale many decades ago. It is a good price, but very poor quality. I posted a picture showing a broken electrical cover plate for an outlet with the sheet from the bed hanging close by. This is a fire hazard! The bottom sheet on the bed was too small for a king - it... More

First, we booked with an online travel site. We had two beds for 4 people for less than $55 per night. That kind of price allows me to overlook a few things. The room was clean and everything was on good repair except the door. It was bent a little and the deadbolt would not fasten. The beds were comfortable.... More

Perhaps the conversation with the desk clerk behind a bullet proof window should have been my first indicator to leave as quickly as possible. It was late, the kids were exhausted. We dragged all our things into the hotel room where I promptly stripped the sheets to check for bed bugs... but I didn't get that far. As soon as... More

The room was damaged and filthy. The furniture was sticky with filth. The carpet was sticky with who knows what. The blanket was threadbare. The mattress was shabby and dirty. The drapes were filthy. The coffee pot, microwave and mini fridge were good. The TV was ok. The continental breakfast was the worst I've ever had. Sorry. This place is... More

For that price you can't complain. This was an overnight stop while traveling from Yosemite to San Francisco. It was okay, we checked in around 20:30. A bit outdated rooms, but no negative experiences.

You don't stay at this hotel for aesthetic pleasure, you stay because you get a lot of room for your money. The good: The room is huge and well-equipped, with plenty of elbow-room and a large dressing/kitchenette area with a microwave & fridge. It even has a swimming pool with a lift for people with disabilities, which is awesome. The... More
