Good price close to everything in we wanted to see. Continental Breakfast included but if you don't want an IHOP is right next door. Happy Buffet down a few streets. Pool and Jacuzzi, room clean and free wifi.

We stayed here for two nights on our trip between visiting Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Sure it's not in the greatest suburb (you can tell that by the strip club directly across the street) but as far as the hotel goes the rooms did the job. The one thing however that I'll never forget was the man who we... More

Just so everyone knows what kind of traveler I am, there are 3 things that I look for in a hotel, Good service, clean room, decent bed. This place really had none of that. We took our family to San Diego for a SeaWorld trip and I was not the one that chose this hotel! I had read the reviews... More

It's all that I needed and more. I needed a hot shower and a good night sleep. I got both. In need of new carpet. When I went to check out I saw a carpet cleaning van outside so I guess they heard my thoughts. I don't smoke and found it to being refreshing to that none of the rooms... More

Think about what you do NOT like in a hotel and you will find it in this one; anything I can say is not enough to describe the extremly bad service, and really poor conditions this facility is; if you want to save some bucks, go camping, it will be more comfortable and nice.

We stayed here while doing some college tours over Labor Day. The rooms were clean but the carpet left your feet black and sticky (desperately in need of a cleaning). There is a strip club across the street, but no excessive noise. They should really invest in some Downy, the towels are like sandpaper. Central location and the office is... More

Very negative experience here. Booked 2 queen beds and got there and room had only one bed. No other rooms were available, causing us to have to leave and look for another hotel which took hours due to everyone being full. Greedy staff threatened to call police on us if we didn't get out because they were trying to give... More

The location is ok...yes, it's across the street from a strip club, but we didn't mind. There seemed to be no after hours traffic from the club to the hotel. I did travel with all adults so no kiddos were around to see the strip club so it wasn't a bother to us. The front desk staff was nice and... More

I actually booked this place based on mostly positive reviews, but we had a horrible night. There was a profanity laced arguement between a guy staying at the hotel and what looked like one of the strip club dancers from across the street at about 9pm. We hadn't gone to bed yet for the night so we just tried to... More

Hi MsRaeJ - You are right, you deserve an apology. I am so sorry you endured such bad night and were not treated with appropriate care - that is unacceptable. I'll tell you with sincerity that wild, loud guests are the exception to the rule. Those guests don't do us any favors - your review is proof of that -... More

It's not the Ritz, but it's just fine for what we were looking for. We were in the area for a concert and this hotel is a short walk from the arena. Yes, the rooms are old and a bit run down but it was quiet, safe and, for the inexpensive rate we paid, I'm not complaining. There is a... More
