2 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

A major problem that we had was no hot water for showers including for hair washing. The person at the desk had us try another room in the morning after 2 mornings of not hot water. That room again also did not have hot water... 3 days out of 4. The condition of the facility was poor with a lot to be done such as broken/cracked windows in the guest room, nonfunctioning door locks, lack of security, poor value.Likely not to

The room was clean and quiet. The "continental" breakfast
turned out to be more of a breakfast buffet, including eggs,
sausage, hash browns, muffins, 4 kinds of cereal, fresh fruit,
etc, etc. A popular tv series was filmed on the premises.
The staff were exceptionally responsive to my needs and
the courtyard was perfect to walk my dog.

A typical HJ with clean spacious rooms. Helpful staff and quiet area. This is a privately own HJ and require 24 hours notice to cancel a reservation. Otherwise they charge your card with the entire rate. We underestimated our ToA and wanted to transfer our reservation to a HJ further down the road. They refused to help us and informed us of their cancelation policy. Other HJ's on our other trips have transferred our reservations without a problem. Breakfast was not up to HJ standards. They had hot powdered egg and milk eggs and gravy. They did not taste good and we opted for fruit and juice.

Room Tip: Make sure you cancel reservations 24 hours ahead if needed. Good rooms.

The pool and hot tub were closed which was very disappointing. The exercise room needs a lot of attention.

Decent hotel for a night stay. Property needs updating really bad. Poor water pressure, hot and cold shower, sub par breakfast bar.
