Hotel close to airport and many tech companies in the area. Hotel has look and feel of a distinguished older hotel that has allowed rooms to run down a bit. Awesome grounds and walk around through various brick paths. Traveled for business and had standard King room including breakfast which was good. Room was sparse and dated with minimal TV... More

The hotel is a bit dated but clean with a comfortable bed. Carlos was very helpful with the park and fly offer. The driver that took us to the airport was efficient and he also returned us to the hotel 10 days later. Overall, if you can get a good rate on this place or the park and ride deal... More

The hotel managers, Carlos and Anthony, are fantastic. My friend was scheduled to stay there for one week following surgery at a nearby hospital. Carlos and Anthony worked together to reduce the stress for those of us responsible for her post-hospital care. Unexpected complications resulted from the surgery and the management team worked together to meet every change request, every... More

I had to cancel a reservation for the end of March, so called the hotel and cancelled, or so I thought. Since I had originally made the reservation through ParkSleepFly, I called them as well to cancel since they are the ones who collect the initial reservation deposit. No problem. The agent said my deposit would be credited back to... More

Because of an early morning flight, my wife and I needed a hotel near the airport. This hotel fit the bill: only about 5 minutes away and inexpensive relative to the competition (we got our room for $89 plus tax, etc.). Here is the good and bad as we experienced it. Good: Location close to airport, relatively inexpensive, fast check-in... More

This hotel was picked for me and a co-worker on short notice. It had grungy bathrooms (dirty tiles), dirty sink, and very old and outdated rooms. My co-workers room was the same and her closet door would not close. I figured, ok, suck it up and at least it does not have roaches...well, just as if they were waiting for... More

We stayed here for 4 nights around Christmas time. With a discount for a stay over three nights plus an AAA discount, we spent less than $70 per night, making it an unbeatable value. The property itself is a bit older but was well maintained, and the center courtyard area was very pleasant. The room was basic but nice and... More

Stayed here on business in January 2014. The room felt dated, it was particularly cold, the heater was quite noisy and just about worked. Thankfully there were extra blankets to put on the bed at night. Tried to get breakfast one morning and it took forever to get a seat as staff shuffled by, then an age to actually get... More

Handy for the airport and plenty of parking. Rooms were dated but ok and a decent size, beds comfortable and sleep was not disturbed. Buffet breakfast mediocre and did not change over 3 days. My colleague reported every seat he sat on in the breakfast room was sticky - it's the type of hotel that hosts youth sports teams that... More

This Hotel has a nice lobby but the room are in desperate need of remodeling. The smell is musty, walls wall paper peeling off, curtains torn, old box tv's, furniture all scratched up. Carpet had bad spots thru out the room. Had to move from room to another, first room curtains were all torn and smelled bad. I was really... More
