As a single woman traveling. This place was scary. People coming and going into the two rooms on both sides of me all night long. At one point someone banged on my door. Very upsetting. I have traveled all over the world and this was by far the most awful experience in my life.

Booked at the last minute for a family of 6 and must admit I was leary of the location. But was pleasantly surprised at the large room that was in pretty good condition. Location was right off the freeway across the street from a Celia's restaurant that I hight recommend. Breakfast was just the grab and go sort, but our... More
