The hotel was a pleasant suprise. As it was not expensive we had prepared ourselves for a much lower standard then we got. The room was clean and pscious and spacious and of very good quality and the breakfast if great! The hotel was easy to find and had enough parking space In the surroundings are many good restaurants.

Perfect situated hotel just outside LA. Just a day trip to Grand Canyon or Las Vegas. Route 66 is also close by. The breakfast was delicious and the hotel is close to a very nice Mexican restaurant. Didn't try the pool but it looked really nice.

This was a very nice hotel! It was better than I had expected it to be. It was very clean, close to shopping and the staff were all very friendly & helpful. We needed trip supplies and there was a Wal Mart close by which was very helpful.

Great place for short stay. Clean rooms, good bed and breakfast with both cold and warm dishes. Excellent location for an overnight stay when traveling from/to LA and Las Vegas or Grand Canyon. Shoping in Tanger outlet is an optional bonus

A well run friendly hotel with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Excellent security door to bedroom wing. Great value for money with free breakfast. Good restaurant next door and close to shops. One of the best stop overs on our 6 weeks tour of the south west USA. Good clean pool.

The bed itself was clean as well as the bathroom. The room however was saturated with an overpowering air freshener scent that would not quit. The door had 3 security latches which made me question why there were so many locks. The patio door was ancient, and that had 3 locks as well, but only one worked. Luckily we were... More

We had booked two poolside rooms and where given two "gas station" side rooms instead. We were told that for only $10 we could have one poolside room (two weren't available). I declined on principle. We were just in for the night stopping between Grand Canyon and Death Valley so just wanted a place to sleep. While the rooms were... More
