Always happy to help me. The rooms are very similar with slight adjustments to fit your needs. Location is easy to get in and out of, nice restaurant next door. Laundry room available, fitness, pool and more. They have a lounge area in the lobby which serves wine, beer and food.

I was not very impressed with the room as it was very bland. The bed was not very comfortable, and the shower had weak... More

Wanted to send great compliments to Ricardo at the front desk for his exceptional service and friendly personality. Al was very good behind the bar and nice to talk to after a long day. I am not sure what was bothering Matt behind the front desk on my last day of the visit, but he seemed very irritable and not... More

The service at the front desk was totoally aweful. It was 16th Jan.,There was a young guy wearing white shirt. very arrogant and impolite. Even immigration and custom guys in airport were better. I was just tending to ask wifi password and IHG reward, He cut my words, threw the papers in front of me and said that it was... More

I continue to enjoy my experience at this hotel. Easy freeway access and great service. All staff are very cooperative. in particular the front desk Danna and the bartender Dani. I will for sure return. I have been at this location 4 times and have never been disappointed. Rooms are very well appointed and quite.

Wonderful. First of all, the front desk was amazing. I lost the business card that I wrote the names of the two people that were usually at the front desk. I wanted to compliment both of them. Everyone at the front desk was wonderful, smiling and helpful in any way they could be. Breakfast was better than the standard offered... More

The staff during breakfast is very courteous and has a great service mindset, especially Gabby and Carmen who are great at what they do; the food is also great.
