To start with, this is the first time in 15 years that I checked into a room to find a tube television (25 inch) instead of at least a cheap flat screen. The musty smell hits you when you come in the room but it is unnoticeable after a few minutes. The carpet is old and stained as are some... More

Flew out from Massachusetts for opening game at Levi Stadium. Shuttle from airport, nice lounge and 5 minute walk to a great sports bar at the casino.Train just 100 yards across from hotel and takes you directly to the stadium in 20 minutes for $4 round trip.

The hotel staff are not particularly friendly. I am not convinced they are well trained in hospitallity. The restaurant has a very low quality banquet-style breakfast with previously-frozen items, and it took a long time to be waited on and greeted at the door both visits. The hallways smell musty and are incredibly warm and humid,. The rooms are average... More

Hotel is clean, very nice open patio between the different buildings, can certainly be accomodating some conferences. gym is limited vs # of total rooms. Service is nice, breakfast included. Room on the street was somewhat noisy but maybe by asking a room on the patio area you get better experience potentially. Conveniently located near airport.

This hotel is a great location to the airport which why I chose it. The price was decent. This is a very old hotel. The hallways smell musty as do the rooms. The shower was uneven and I felt my balance was off. The room was okay for a one stop on the way to the airport in the morning,... More

I would like to start out by saying, I am not a high maintenance person, most things don't get to me. But this place just was not up to par. If it wasn't for my company putting me up here for my trip, I would have checked out immediately. The musty smell in the lobby could knock you over and... More

Had to stay here on business travel since that's what travel folks booked for me. The place is very dated. Everything is old and in need of replacement. They even still have old CRT style TVs in the room. Forgot how bad the picture was on them. There is no alarm clock in the room either. Hard to say how... More

But for its size, parking and in house restaurant, it has all the characteristics of a way side motel-- that includes the smell, rustic set up...etc. I got this on hotwire and the price was manageable. The same was listed in Orbitz for two and half times the price(it would have been disaster if I had brought it at that... More

Older rooms and rates only 2.5 stars on priceline, but well kept up. Despite being next to the freeway, the rooms dont face the freeway so were quiet. Staff very friendly with bellman. Plenty of parking and area does not feel unsafe.

We checked into this hotel around 11pm after a long flight. Check in took a little while but I come to find our that it is only a two story hotel with no elevator. But if you need help taking the bags up to the second floor there is someone to help you. When we entered the room, we were... More
