Our son was invited to Davis's Accepted Student day and originally, we weren't going to go and with 24 hours notice, we needed a hotel for 5 people. We used our rewards and got this hotel.
We arrived very late from Southern California and had a hard time finding the hotel since the GPS kept trying to send us somewhere else and, that late at night off of the highway, everything looked really sketchy so try to arrive during daylight hours.
We were in a large SUV and since we had a 9 hour commute, the kids needed to be comfortable. FIRST ISSUE: Parking. The parking lot is underground and is really difficult to maneuver in a large SUV. Only one car can go in and out safely because the pitch and narrowness of the area doesn't allow for any mistakes. So if you have a rental car, pick a very, very small car! SECOND ISSUE: elevator. You cannot go into the underground parking and expect to go up in the elevator. You need a key that works, and the few times that we needed to go up, the room card didn't work and we were loaded with shopping. Someone had to open the elevator door for us.
The room was spacious, clean and modern. The soaps smelled great! We did have a view of a neighbor's back yard. Re the breakfast: mostly carbs that, as a diabetic, I couldn't have, but the clerk gave us really good directions to Mel's Diner a couple of miles away which the kids really liked (parking, however, was at a premium). There is no restaurant on site.
So, if you are staying at this hotel, you will really appreciate the size and quality of the room but you will need a small car, lots of patience to pull out of this lot, and expect to eat somewhere else if you can't have carbs.
