I was concerned after reading previous reviews but hotel exceeded my expectations. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Room had all hardwood floors which was different. Hotel located in quiet neighborhood but close to shopping and restaurants. As I understand hotel was recently renovated and no longer allows smoking.

I stayed at this Hotel last year for a month and the best part I liked was its location. Its very well placed, Valley West Mall and Walgreens were at walking distance. Staff was overall fine. The only sad part which I felt was the breakfast. This should be taken care seriously and there should be some additions to the... More

The check in staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a truck and large travel trailer and were able to find an adequate parking place. There was a large grassy area behind the motel to walk the dogs and let them run. The room was clean. No smells in room or hallways. Breakfast food was fresh. My only suggestion... More

I had made a reservation via Priceline for a studio. When I checked in at 5pm I was offered a non smoking room. The receptionist MEGHAN was not at all professional and rude in talking. We realized that the toilet was a jammed toilet at 7 pm local time and immediately reported this to Meghan. She didn't seem I retested... More

The hotel was sold out, so maybe they gave me what they had, but it was a smoking floor and a smoking room. The place reeked. I opened the window, but it hardly helped. The room seemed clean, but the hallways and elevators were not. The rate, even supposedly a good rate, was too high for the value received. On... More

We selected this location because of its proximity to the area we would need to be in so we did not have to navigate through the city to get to the location of a wedding. It was our first stay at an Extended Stay facility and were very happy with the decision.

If I would have paid prevailing rate for this hotel, I would feel that I had been ripped off. The room was fairly clean. Hallway smelled strange but room free of bad smells. Bed hard and uncomfortable. Staff seemed friendly. Since I didn't stay long term I don't have a full picture of this hotel, but based on comfort, clientele,... More

The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful when they were available. I saw them outside by the pool smoking the majority of the time. Hallways smell terrible, seems as though the windows need to be opened and air the place out. Our room smelled like mildew and we ran the air conditioner with the window open just to be... More

On a cross-country trip, this is the first motel (including ESAs) that fell well below minimum standards for normalcy. The reception people were...not actually in reception half the time we were looking for them.

Stayed two months and was my second visit. Staff are helpful especially Monica/ Kristi and a maintenance man who turned the mattress without hesitation! Close to nice mall...walking distance! Great places to eat including vegan lunch stop within two blocks. Some updates are planned but overall a safe and pleasant stay!
