At first I was a bit taken back when I was checked in through a hole in the window just standing outside in the night. I arrived after 10pm. When I went to my room I felt much better due to the fact that the room was clean and cosy. Equipped with a clean shower for me to bathe and... More

The most troubling thing about this place is the list of rules you are required to sign at check-in and the security gates and cameras all over the property. None of the other motels in the area have such an extreme level of security. Makes it feel more like a detention facility than a hotel. People jam things in the... More

The area where the hotel is located is fine, close to the freeway and restaurants but the hotel itself is located in a place where you feel unsafe. The front parking is almost in the street, totally open. The back parking supposed gated has the gate always open and it is in the trash area. The check-in was very fast,... More

It was a long journey to begin with, driving over 1000 miles to see my new grandbabies (twins) with great grandma too. The desk staff were nice, but the neighborhood was scary. The windows did not lock. Overpriced. And then my credit card was compromised! Someone tried to charge 2000.00 glad I am home.

Stayed 2 nights. Great value for money. Free wifi, free parking, pool and super access to public transport. Staff were friendly and helpful. Also great breakfast included. Self service and simple but good. Would definitely recommend and if I was this way would go again.

Had a great visit. Only stayed one night but the night I did stay was well. Nice and quiet. Was a little worried since I booked before checking Trip Advisor however I did not experience anything wrong with my stay. For the price I paid it was as expected.
