“Scary!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014

I checked in after dark and was wary of going back out when I left at 3:00 the next morning. The bathroom was so small that it's a good thing I'm not claustrophobic. The TV was a nice one, put audio prompts kept coming up on the screen constantly and I couldn't figure out how to turn it off. The carpet had many bleach stains so I was afraid to walk on it barefoot. The front door had some kind of weird L shaped bar that would keep the door from opening more than 8 inches, but I still felt insecure so I piled my suitcases and the chair in front of it. I'll pay the extra $30 to stay at a safer hotel.

I booked this for a business stay, the pictures are far from accurate. The room was disgusting, the bed was broken. There were police cars outside. I booked for employees and rebooked somewhere else, this place is that bad. The room offered was horrible and the manager refused to refund the stay.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Just spent 9 days doing San Francisco to LA we were picking our rental car up late so I wanted somewhere close to the airport I figured for £100 as a quick stop over it would be fine. It was more expensive than the gorgeous Embassy Suites we stayed at LAX for £91 and other places yet it the worst place we stayed during our whole 3 week trip.

It wasn't very clean, the bedding didn't smell clean, breakfast was very basic. Would not recommend.

Stayed June 2014

The location is hidden, and face the highway. Honestly, the room is clean, bed is comfortable. However, my wife found a strand of hair inside "new" towel and the other towel...is with some dirty spots. We are two customers but the shampoo is barely sufficient. The breakfast is average. So, it is just a place you can only have a so-so night.
