My wife and I, two sons, one cousin and other relatives have all stayed here numerous times in their comfortable, clean, remodeled rooms at very fair prices. The staff is exceptionally attentive and considerate and worthy of a much higher grade hotel. The complimentary breakfast is excellent and comprehensive. Amenities such as the pool, courtyard, workout room, outdoor lounge with... More

My wife and I had occasion to stay overnight at the Palm Garden recently for New Year's Eve. We were very pleasantly surprised by our experience! The hotel is on the small size, but very conveniently located off the 101 freeway in Newbury Park (Thousand Oaks). The room and premises were quite clean and featured a pleasant pool and outdoor...

My wife & I stayed here for five nights over Christmas. Our daughter & her family live in Thousand Oaks and when the kids are home it gets just too crowded for us to stay there so we need our own bedroom and bathroom. That's why we look for a clean, reasonable place - as opposed to a place on... More

I found my room to be comfortable and clean. Some of the furniture is banged up a bit, but that is very minor. The restaurant was very nice; I always enjoy an Irish Pub!

We checked in late (3a.m.) after a long drive from Phoenix and were assisted by Mark who very kindly upgraded us to a lovely room with comfortable, high quality bedding/mattress, very clean and spacious. The gardens and courtyard were lush and quiet. The breakfast buffet was good but basic. We had a nice soak in the hot tub prior to... More

Hotel is nothing fancy. The room interiors are old. The wallpaper was peeling off from above the mirrors in the bathroom. The breakfast was OK. I stayed over for a night and left in the morning. The room was quiet. The pool looked very inviting but I didn't have time for it. The irish restaurant within the Hotel was pretty... More

It is a very average kind of hotel. Customer Service is the key to any Hotel. A few at the front desk were amazingly good, but attitude of others was very disappointing. Breakfast: Same everyday!! You have the same spread each and every day which is kind of annoying. There is absolutely no variety. Rooms: Size of the room is... More

Yes the rooms could use a bit of attention. Yes there are some parts that are a bit dated. But having said that, this is an ideal location right off the freeway yet tucked away from the road for peace and quiet. The breakfast was one of the best free breakfasts that I've ever seen at a hotel. They give... More
