The staff - the staff was possibly the friendliest staff I have ever encountered at a hotel. We stayed with our 3 year old son and he was overjoyed when they took him behind the counter and let him check us in himself. We had a problem with a piece of our luggage and their maintenance man took the suitcase apart and rebuilt it for us. Last, they booked us a room with no neighbors so our son could play as loud as he wanted.
The hotel - Our room was surprisingly large, more than enough room for the 3 of us. There was a corner couch that was well over 7 feet long. I'm 6' 4" and could lay down with ease. The shower was the largest shower I've ever seen at a hotel. There was no bathtub.
Amenities - They have an outdoor pool but we didn't use it. They have 2 computers with internet access for anybody to use 24 hours a day for free. They have continental breakfast, though it is the weakest breakfast I've ever seen at a hotel. Cold cereal, yogurt, and toast. There was a toaster oven, but this was your only oppurtunity for warm food unless you wanted to pay. They do have a menu available 24 hours a day that was relatively cheap.
Location - It is located right on the on-ramp for the freeway. So when you check in, ask for a room facing away from the freeway. This was the only negative thing about our stay. You can hear every car accelerating up the ramp and it is very loud. There are restaurants withing walking distance, but the only ones we can recall are McDonald's and Burger King. There were non fast food restaurants too, but we just can't remember what they were.
At the $69 a night + taxes, this was a steal. I would recommend this hotel to anybody staying in the area.
