I went on a business trip and brought my mom to join me. The price was right. One of the things I do is my "clean sock test" I put on a white pair of scoks and walk around doing my usual tasks and if the socks are clean, Im pretty sure the carpet or floors are cleaned, if not ( one place i stayed I will NEVER go back to after this test) I can get a idea of the condition of the rest of the facilities. ( and no I don't think it's wierd) Usually at this price rate I often don't have very high expectations. But this place was a little different. The room was a small queen suite. We had two queen beds and a seperate room with an adtional TV ,fridge, and small wet bar. The separate TV room (with a desk and internet access) is great for a person with kids or a nite owl that has work to do and has another person with them. Visalia is a busy downtown area, there is a Starbucks and some small little places to eat within walking distance. I did appreciate the kindness of the staff as compared to the usual "I live way to close to LA rudeness". The breakfast consisted of great service, coffee, bagel, and I got to make my own belgian waffle. At night from 5-7:00 pm they have a managers special". This was veggies with dip,a nacho bar, swedish meatballs, chicken wings...and get this (my mom loved this) two drinks. (beer) and soda no limit. It was comfortable, clean and we even had the fun of going to the local farmers market on Friday. Also : Yes this is a small town. 2 big perks ..small town friendly people & Sequoia National park a short drive away. :) P.S. parking is free with security.
