4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Only 40 mins away from airport, this have us the ideal base to explore one more city before we left the US. Hotel service was great, room was spacious and clean and whole experience cost effective. Buffet breakfast was decent too. Downtown slightly prettier area (5miles away) but a great stay overall.

These guys earn your business. It's not the greatest hotel in the world as far as aesthetics, but the little things they do are enormous. Great breakfast bar, water in the fridge and apple and fruit on the table when you enter are just a touch that almost every other hotel I visit lacks. The gym is full functional with... More

Stayed for four nights from 5th August 2014, have family that stay nearby but their house is overcrowded at the moment so chose this hotel for its location mainly. Had a long journey from Scotland so the quick and easy checkin was very good. Our room was on the first floor and easily accessed by the lift, which was good... More

This hotel is in the more industrial part of town, so one might think it a little sketchy. However, aside from poor noise insulation, it was pretty relaxing and had everything we needed. We were pretty much gone ALL day - my husband working downtown and me day tripping to the many glorious nearby destinations (San Fran, Monterey, Santa Cruz,... More

If you're planning to stay here be aware that it's more of a motel-style with rooms on an exterior walkway facing the parking lot. Also the A/C is old fashioned style window units. These were noisy at night and could not set an exact temperature. As a result I woke up hot, then turned down but then my daughter near... More

Service is poor. Room is mediocre . Reluctantly provide extra pillows & blankets. Noisy with parties or people fighting. Lights in the room were too bright. Would not recommend this place. People need to be RE TRAINED in customer service.

I was really impressed with this place. It seemed a bit out of the way, but the hotel itself, rooms, and staff were superb. Our room was immaculate, and well-stocked with coffee, tea, complimentary water bottles, toiletries, and towels. The included breakfast was an excellent value with lots of variety: eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, oatmeal, bananas, boiled eggs, pancakes, coffee,... More

After a long day of travelling my husband and I arrived at the hotel early and loved that there was lots of FREE parking!
