For the price, this is an excellent hotel. The location is right off the freeway, so it's not close to downtown, but the accommodations themselves are lovely and the service was great.
We checked in during the evening by a lovely young woman (Larissa?) who was ever so friendly and helpful. The room itself was immaculately clean and, though a smoking room, smelled beautiful. We got a first floor room with a patio (complete with small table and chairs) near the pool -- it was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and had four awesome pillows on each one. There were also tons of outlets in the room for my friend and I to charge cell phones, laptops, etc. all at the same time.
Only slight downside: the bathroom is quite small. We didn't eat in the restaurant, so I can't comment on that. (We went to the nearby IHOP which was slightly ghettofied.) Free shuttle service to the airport was easy to book. Room service prices were as reasonable as one could expect.
Overall, I was quite impressed by both the room itself and the staff. Besides the front desk clerk, I also encountered a housekeeper who, when I discovered there was no ice machine on the first floor, took my little bucket and filled it in the restaurant for me. Big thumbs up.
