The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms were cleaned and made up quickly every day (we stayed 4 nights). Continental breakfast with waffles which seems to be standard most places. Very modern rooms with lots of amenities. Located close to the freeway and served as a good base for us as we spent most of our time in Lakeside,... More

Stayed at this hotel for a nearby meeting. The location is not the best,and the small, oddly shaped parking lot had lots of comings and goings. There are 2 stories, no elevator and steep cement stairs that are challenging for the older, younger or disabled to navigate, especially with luggage. The room was fine, it seemed clean. It was 90...

The room was larger than expected and had more amenities than were needed! We particularly liked the soap and shampoo dispensers in the shower and there were plenty of towels for two people. There was breakfast offered but the location of the hotel made it very easy to get to another location we had wanted to try for breakfast. The... More

The hotel staff was friendly, professional and courteous. The room was clean and the breakfast presentation nice. The food and drink were replenished quickly and kept neat. The staff was quick to look for special food requests. The front desk was helpful with local information and recommendations on restaurants and attractions. The pool and spa area looked fine. It was... More

The rooms themselves are very nice, clean and updated. However, the location is not exactly ideal. Very small parking lot, it not the nicest of areas. Easy access to freeways. The cleanliness of the rooms, nice sized tvs, and complimentary breakfasts made staying at this location worth it.

We were in town for a softball tournament. We came as a 4 person family and had a good night's rest. We were very happy with the variety at the free continental breakfast for a small hotel. Room was clean, staff was polite. We checked in late and had no problems. For a short one night stay it was a... More

Worse stay ever. Cockroaches, lighting issues, poor quality beds, and very noisy. The walls must be very thin, it sounded like elephants clomping around upstairs. They were also doing work and the noise was too much. The lights in the room have sensors. All I did was turn over in bed and the lights came on. Happened all night so... More

There was a problem with my bill and the General Manager refused to help. Even though I had called and cancelled my reservation and the desk clerks said they were canceled they were not and I was charged for 2 extra rooms. Peter refused to give me his last name, it took me a least five minutes to get it.... More

Beds aren't the most comfortable, but w/e. Awesome location to freeways and everything was really close by. Place was otherwise really clean and staff was friendly. Decent internet here, too. Thank you for being pet-friendly. Has pool and jacuzzi. Well-lit. Small and quiet.
