We've stayed here three times now in the last twelve months, during the Christmas holiday break, in February and most recently, just last week. Staff is beyond friendly and ready to attend to all our needs. With parts of the building original to the 1940s, the rooms reflect the era, while being comfortable and well appointed. Enjoy continental breakfast in... More

So friendly. So warm (hospitality! The weather itself was sizzling). Generous and hassle free. Great stay! We were there for a conference/event at the Ace hotel and wanted somewhere cheaper and quieter. Hotel California it the bill perfectly. Booking and arranging early check-in was a breeze, actually checking in showed us how friendly the multi-generation family run folks are and... More

Extraordinary customer service, clean , relaxing, affordable, what more could you ask for ? will defineatly visit again. Lucy is the best, Jay is a character. Won't let you do anything but relax. How can you not love a place that offers you a free beer or water before you even check in !
