Decent hotel for a night stay. Property needs updating really bad. Poor water pressure, hot and cold shower, sub par breakfast bar.

All the updating went to the lobby which is the nicest thing about the hotel. Customer Service was just okay. Parking is behind your hotel room in a non visible area. The room appeared to be nice at first. Our bed covers had hair all over the inside of them and on the pillows. There was no warm water. Air... More

The couches and chair in the room we beat up with holes in cushions and hideabed matress we uncomfortable at best. The other bother was that... More

I have stayed at this property in past years under a different brand. To their credit, they are remodeling and for the money it is a very good value. Do not expect high end furnishings or bathrooms. The king bed was very good and nice linens. One of the the back gate key locks did not work. Blankets were insufficient... More

This is a property that has had a long history - and many changes of ownership. We have stayed here frequently for one main reason: It is the best hotel choice for your dog, ever. Some of the rooms open onto a large, grassy courtyard, and a sliding door gives your dog an opportunity to go outside and romp. Inside,... More

First night we had to switch rooms 4 times before we actually received a nice room. Lorenzo was very helpful. Second morning there was hardly any choice of breakfast abd everything was hard and cold. Every night there was a humming that made it hard to sleep. Last night was the worse. Got no asleep.

The front desk folks were very courteous and helpful to weary travelers. My room (245) appeared to be clean and fresh, yet bare feet felt the floor carpets needed more attention than just a vacuuming. The bathroom was nice and best of all, had good shower pressure and plenty of hot water. The heater worked well in increments, not too... More
