This hotel calls itself a 4 Star accommodation. It would be lucky to get a 1 Star from me. We booked a non-smoking room. Our room smelled so strongly of smoke, that we spent half of the night coughing. There was a cockroach in our room, also. There was no manager to whom to complain and so we were told... More

The rating above is for the property itself, which I'd describe as a standard motel with a half-decent pool. The service, unfortunately, is much worse, and deserves less than one star. I was overcharged by almost half the price of my stay for allegedly "stinking up the room with smoke." Maybe that had something to do with why the room... More

Dear Guest, As per hotel policy, we explain to guests of our no smoking policy in non-smoking rooms. If you would like to smoke, please kindly request smoking rooms as we do have some available at our property. The no smoking policy is enforced strictly so that the room is always a non-smoking room. It is important to us that... More

Website advertises rooms at $89; we got there after midnight, parking lot NOT full, and they told us $98, but came down so we wouldn't leave. Though clean, the room was shoe-box size and the tv had 'No Signal', so no news or entertainment. There were only two outlets to charge devices, and one was ready to come out of... More

We were heading home from a 2 week trip to AZ and had planned to spend the night in Gilroy. I nearly always make reservations in advance, but we weren't quite sure what days we would be heading home, so decided to just call ahead the day of our arrival. We stopped in Salinas to call a hotel in Gilroy.... More

Much better choices out there. Rooms are small, everything feels dirty and in need of maintenance. Fitness center is gross and the machines don't work. They even cable the iron to the ironing board and the hair dryer to the wall. Makes you wonder how safe it is to leave anything personal there for any amount of time.

Fridge in the room. Cons: Small room- OK As we were just overnight. Food nearby is all fast food. If you want something else get in the... More

Had business all week in this area of the state. I stayed at a couple of other properties closer to my appointments, but wished I had just stayed at this hotel the entire time. The front desk person was very helpful and nice. Rooms were large and the fitness center was sufficient. Overall, the hotel was very clean. Even the... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights (26-29 September) while attending the World Superbike racing at Laguna Seca. I had booked the hotel almost a year ago, based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was very easy to find, right off the 101 highway, and despite being right on the 101 we didn’t notice any traffic noise whatsoever. The beds... More
