I had booked this place with my 8 y/o in mind. He loves spending time in pools after a day on the road. We could see the pool as we checked in...roped off by yellow caution tape. Sigh... There were also rolls of new carpet in the parking lot. It is time for new carpet. The property is nice and the room was clean, except for puddles when the toilet was flushed. The little deck hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The ice machine on the third floor (our floor) was out of order. With just a little push, I'd had given the property 5 stars. We had an earthquake that evening, and we appreciated that the place didn't implode. We rocked and rolled, but no damage done.

Unfortunately the hotel was under renovation while we were there. The hotel is in the process of updating carpets and mattresses as well as painting the rooms. Carpeting lines the front of the hotel, old bed frames and mattresses lined the hallways. To make matters more difficult, the elevator wasn’t working and the pool was not available. Not exactly handicapped friendly. Customers should be informed when booking a reservation.

Opened the door of our room and immediately got hit with the smell of weed and cigarettes. Upon checking the beds, found stains all over the top side of the comforter, and then numerous long, black hairs on the inside. Terrible experience.

The hotel was updating decor. The room was very spacious and clean with ample room in the bath room. Shower is over a bath. The towels were very white and fluffy and beds very comfortable. Good bathroom accessories were supplied. Large screen tv and free WiFi. Complimentary self serve coffee and tea provided in the foyer. It's a good budget stay and will be very good once new carpets have ee been replaced.
