We checked in yesterday, just a little early and they did not have a problem with that. The girl who worked at the front was very nice and the person who I believe was the gm was pleasant. It was explained to us that this was a non-smoking property, but upon going to our room we could see smoking on their balconies. We were assigned room 138 which is on the ground floor with a view of the pool. When we entered the building it reeked of something musty. We went to the room and it smelled worse. It was dark and the word dank kept coming to mind. This room only had one towel set and one lamp. It really wasn't set up for two people. The ironing board and iron were not there either.The TV has a funny noisy as well. I went back to the front desk and asked for another room. The gentleman that assisted me didn't even ask why I wanted another room, so that tells me that they know they smell. We were given a room on the second floor 231. It has a balcony and the view is the freeway and brown foothills. The room had only a very slight musty odor. That smell could have been carried over from the room we were just in though. When you open the curtains even a little it is nice and bright. There are two lamps and towels enough for two. A small coffee maker with pod type coffee (not Keurig or Tassimo) enough for two cups of coffee and a couple tea bags.The carpet, the desk and the entertainment center seems new. We had an odd table in the room that had no purpose. There is no clock in the room and the TV makes the same weird noise. Must be a cable or dish issue. So as those of you who follow my reviews...know I have a thing about bathrooms. I have nothing to complain about it. It was clean!!! No mildew, no mold, no little hairs, no dirt behind the door. It is old, but has been freshened up and has the best water pressure. I thought it was going to knock me over this morning. :0) Surprise!! In case Shilo or the Manager reads the reviews I have a few suggestions...at least for our room. Please get a clock, fix the tv issues, the sink (which is in the entry area) needs a stopper of sort, wipe down the wallpaper occasionally and please do something about the cobwebs above the bed on the ceiling, add a second chair and clean the tiled area on the balcony. I rested my forarms there and they were disgustingly dirty and sticky.They do ask for a 100.00 security and think that is ridiculous for this place, but I understand why hotels do this. The hotel was rather quiet. We heard some people arguing in the hall, but that lasted only about 5 minutes. Could not hear noises from rooms next to us.
