We spent one night while travelling down the I-5. It was a good choice for a quiet night's rest.
The hotel is handy to the I-5 but because it is really off Route 101 you need to watch the directions carefully. The hotel is set in a wooded area away from the highway, with a view towards a nearby lake.
The hotel is sprawling. When we were there it had several large groups for conference type events but everything ran smoothly.
The room was a little dated, perhaps time for an update, but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wifi was free.
We didn't dine in the restaurant but there is a full service restaurant and lounge and an adequate breakfast buffet.
