Beds were great! This was a one-night stay with our soccer team. Breakfast is a continental breakfast. Part of the hotel was under construction. Room décor was quite dated. There is really nothing around the hotel as far as restaurants go. It is in a somewhat residential area, next to a church school.

The room was clean and well maintained. The staff was excellent. All of the utilities (fridge, microwave, tv). were in working order. Parking was limited and some of the spaces were a challenge to get to. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

I stayed here for one night on business in February. It is what you would expect from a Best Western. Nothing too fancy, but clean, comfy and a good value. The service was excellent. The location is pretty good. Parking a little tight but definitely manageable. The room was very clean and it was seriously one of the most comfortable... More

Dear uclachexican, I am happy that you stayed as a guest at our hotel and found your stay to be clean, comfy, and of good value. I do apologize for the late fitness room hours. The reason why it opens at 10am is because we have a sleeping room right next to it and don't want to disturb the potential... More

This hotel was heads above others... away from major freeways so it was very quiet and peaceful. The Spanish Style decor was unique unlike your basic hotel. Internet was fast and easy to log on to which is important to me. Not one of the high end hotel chains but this particular hotel is one of the best in it's... More

Room quality was WAY better than we expected. Very nice with a local touch to the bathrooms, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Can't be beat for the price! Will stay there again if in the area.

My boyfriend and I came here to spend a night away from our housemates and have a pseudo-Christmas in January, as I was away with family for the holidays.

My husband and I are Birdwatchers. We like a motel with a desk and chair for him to write his reports, and a comfy chair for me to read my book. The Rose Garden had that. We need a microwave and refrigerator. Tick! Everything was clean and neat, although the outlet for the hair-dryer was loose and sparky and I... More
