We visit family close to the hotel, which makes it very convenient. Not fancy, but the rooms are clean and the place is quiet. The price is also very good. They also have a very nice complementary continental breakfast. We will return for our next visit.

The staff was great. They went above and beyond to help with directions and answer questions on the area. Rooms were clean, and the TV had HBO. There was continental breakfast offered and plenty of nearby places to eat along with a Trader Joe's !

The staff was friendly and mostly accommodating. The room was clean and the air conditioner on for pending arrival because it was a very hot day. It's definitely good for a couple nights stay. Also the international plaza is nearby.

I stated I had asked for a downstairs room. I was told "people who book on the net don't have request options. I said I typed it in the comments. He sharply told me it's not available. I went out and when I couldn't find an elevator I came back and asked. He said it is over there. It was... More
