“Beware of Shower Only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Clean, nice staff, decent continental+ breakfast. The website praises how the rooms are constructed being close to ADA compliant. The shower is just a vertical box with one, small soap dish. There is nothing to hold to get in or out. The dish is so small that one cannot contain both the soap and shampoo they provide (as if you use it). Have to pick up soap, shampoo, conditioner from the floor. As for lifting one's leg to wash the bottom calf and foot, good luck. A law suit in waiting.

Room Tip: Ask for the shower tub combo.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This inn suited our needs perfectly: location close to downtown and freeways, comfortable bed, clean throughout, complimentary breakfast, good price. Room has obviously been renovated, with guest comfort in mind. Bathroom had custom-sized counter and sink to maximize floor space, tub/shower had bowed shower rod for more room, vanity outside of bathroom was right over the heater so made for a nice place to put on makeup, microwave and coffee maker always appreciated, nice flat screen TV, new furniture and accessories. Breakfast was quite ample, including eggs, sausage, waffles and cold items. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you need a refrigerator, request it at check in.
