Rooms were quite large and clean. Beds were surprisingly comfortable, slept well. We were on the opposite side of the freeway so did not hear traffic. Hotel needs some upgrading in the pool and courtyard areas but not what I was here for.

This room was the perfect size for my fiance, myself and toddler. I have a lot of room for her to play and have her pack and play out. The bed was comfy and spacious, I liked the channel lineup even though we only watched a little bit of Disney junior. The A/C didn't work very well and the room... More

Went in expecting the worst & while the hotel can certainly use some updates, especially in the public areas, it wasn't too terrible. Staff was friendly. Weird smells in halls and elevator. WiFi was slow / useless. Didn't try the pool or free breakfast. It's newly renovated but I have a feeling the hard and soft goods will not last... More

This is THE WORST HOTEL I have ever been to. The smell was like a landfill, the carpet felt like your feet stuck to it, I complained about the smell and was given a bottle of air freshner. I slept with my clothes on and walked around with my shoes on. I felt like in the morning did I really... More

This IS NOT the hotel to stay at if you want a pleasant experience!! We were in town for our daughter's National's softball tournament and were stuck at this hotel for a week because everything else was sold out. Our first night we arrived to find our "non-smoking" room had a smoking stench that we could not get rid of!!... More

I read a bunch of reviews before booking and just focused on the good one, BIG mistake. The hotel was easy enough to find and that is where the positive things end. We had to park in the back and our key didn't work so we had to walk all the way around to get it fixed. Get in the... More

That being said it needs updating it is older with no working gym but there is an indoor pool and spa I did not use but... More
