Been to this place many times. It's one of the best location for me. Next to grocery store, shops and trolley stop. Has a nice balcony to watch things going on and nice view of mountains. Only thing missing was a toilet paper holder in the bathroom this time..

I scored this hotel as a 3 only because it needs to be updated with paint, carpet, etc. We were very please with the room we got. The room itself was very clean. It did smell like a smoking room, but it could have been from the vacuum cleaner. We sprayed it with Lysol and that helped. It had a... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful . We stayed in the penthouse and it was super clean and huge. I also loved the location. And the indoor pool was nice. And the jacuzzi in the room was a huge plus after walking all day.

My family stayed for 2 nights too long. The beds were very hard. The pull out couch was actually more comfortable even with the skinny mattress on it. The hotel was very sketchy. My husband says he thinks homeless people actually live there. Do not waste your money. We left asap.I give this hotel a thumbs down. ..

My wife & I stayed here for the weekend for one of our early wedding anniversaries. The price was right. The room was clean. The small patio outside the room was fun to sit at and people watch. We truly enjoyed our stay. Never got to the indoor pool, but looked at it and saw that it was kid friendly... More

We were there in late May 2015, we were expecting to stay for 3 nights, however, due to a medical emergency we had to leave during the second night. (I was hoping for a partial refund or a coupon for a free night, but they couldn't do that). Brandon, the front desk person at check in was very friendly. Very... More
