Have stayed here previously. Condition of hotel has declined, although it is still fairly new. Noted stains on sheets and pillows. Elevator and passageways could be cleaner. My biggest issue with my visit is about the check in process. It is a long drive from Canada, and I didn't appreciate standing in line for twenty minutes while 2 employees checked... More

This was one of the nicest motels my husband and I stayed in on our recent 21 day vacation. Our room was very nice. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and inviting. It offered all the amenities you would expect for a motel with a four star rating. The continental breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay here again if... More

Easy to book, easy to get to, very quiet room. Disappointed that the pool was an indoor pool as the weather was beautiful. While breakfast was OK, it was not memorable and I dislike that it is served on paper plates. Walking distance to shopping. Unfortunately the only "restaurant" within walking distance is the Old Spaghetti factory - meh!

This is a great property kept in great condition located in a great location with great staff delivering great service. I had stayed here in the first week the hotel opened. Four years on the hotel is still in very clean condition. Salute!

This HIEX exceeded my expectations for several reasons and was overall better than most hotel stays. I enjoyed the 5 floors; we had 415 on 4th facing the hillside trees. Very good room. Some positives are: 1. Location! I liked that the hotel was not too far from the freeway exit but was surrounded by trees, clean, landscaped stores and... More
