If I could have given this 3.5 stars I would have. Stayed here several nights while I was participating in a musical reunion. Pros: price, convenient location, clean, friendly staff, very comfy mattress. Cons: DirecTV had to reboot at least 5 times, paint was peeling above the bathroom sink, wooden shades did very little to darken the room. I would... More

Great location, beds mega comfortable. It includes intercontinental breakfast with an incredible coffee. It has a pool but, at the time that I stay was a little dirt and for my opinion didn't like the location of the pool because is right in front the street. Believe me if you are looking for an over night stay or for a... More

My job requires me to travel and that leads to many nights at different hotels. This place takes pride in every item that is inside the room from, the bed sheets, mirror frame, wall finishes, hardware and furniture; therefore, the nights that i have stayed have been not only comfortable but relaxing. It is always clean and inviting as soon... More

Spotlessly clean and very courteous staff. They moved me from a room facing the street to one in the rear. Everything worked as expected. Overall was better than I expected going in - it was a holiday weekend and it was either this or a major chain 15 minutes away. Would give it a 5 but lost sleep one night... More

Great value, great customer service, and honestly? Really comfy bed and pillows, plus a wonderful soft water shower in the morning. The rooms are not huge, but who needs a large room? I recently stayed here and was pleased with all aspects, from check in to check out. The pool, while unheated, provided a lovely sunny spot, and was not... More

We booked based on the overall trip advisor rating. This was a solid three circle rating at best. No smoking room smelled like smoke. Carpet was stained, no nightstand lamps, no clock, rough neighborhood. Will stay elsewhere next time.
