“Very Bad experience and poor servce.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Poor management. Week WiFi signal had to switch rooms. Slow service in cafe then after long wait said they were closed for breakfast. Front desk told them to serve me so they said it would take 20 minutes to cook eggs and toast. I told the server with cook standing nearby that was not reasonable since I was the only customer. Five minutes later I had breakfast. They advertise Fitness Room but it was closed for repairs the entire stay with no known date of completion. My second room had water leak dmage not repaired. The hot water was barely warm all the time. Front desk blamed it on cold 50 F weather. Yeah right so why was it the same the first two days when it was over 80F. They rent rooms out for weddings and traffic school so parking is sometimes first come first served for a good spot. My sliding door didn't shut all the way. Seemed like it wasn't level like a roller missing on one side. That allowed air to leak in and noise from traffic. Windows are not new but older single pane which being so close to a freeway is not a good idea for sound reasons. Maids repalce towels even if they were not on the floor and were helpful but didnt really understand or communicate in English. If the price is low there is a reason. If it is average you are paying too much for this place. I didn't use the pool because other guests said it was cold.

Selected this hotel based on AAA synopsis showed sleeper sofa. this was not available and front desk staff stated had not been for 2-3 years. Lamp beside bed---one did not work and the other was motion sensitive, but kept turning off even though motion was ongoing. Toilet "flush knob" was vert difficult to work. Toilet seat was lower than normal. When checking out, charges had not posted and therefore took longer than expected to get checked out.

I rarely write reviews but if I can prevent someone from having the same experience then I will. This was one of the filthiest hotels i have ever stayed at.The rooms smell and in the morning I found a bug in my bed. Dont do it!
