Water pressure low. Bed feels like straw. Charge you a $75 deposit. Loud house parties have been thrown multiple times next to me when I stayed there. This is a fairly cheap hotel but I have learned there is a reason for it.

Hotel's Favorite
Me and gf stayed here and it was quite a fun experience, after checking in we went onto balcony and noticed several other people on theirs totally nude so we joined in the fun lol, also went in hot tub and pool nude as well and staff was totally cool with it saying it happens all the time and as long as it was night it was fine to swim naked in pool and hot tub! We even walked to and from room to pool and vending and the car naked it was great definitely will be staying again soon

This some what of a hidden gem is located right off the Lake Forest exit. It is quite close by several known fast food franchises, businesses, and local restaurants. Comparatively you get more for your money's worth here, than you do at the near by hotels. By no means is it the fanciest, but what it does not possess in looks it makes up for elsewhere. For example, the spacious two divided rooms is an excellent feature, that is as a rare as it is enjoyable especially with a family. The sink fixture is both modern and elegant and gives you a feel of self importance when washing. The amenities are unfortunately limited for our safety due to COVID. However breakfast has a reasonable healthy spread with a variety of choice. Ultimately the front desk staff is what keeps this place together. This hotel is a diamond, but it only shines bright because the staff are constantly polishing. The previous staff were incredible people and a true loss. The general manager (GM) RENE is a charm and keeps the place together, great under pressure and gets the job done properly. SAM, a newly hired employee, is also quite fantastic. He possesses a kind gesture in his pose, and gives the helpfulness and strength that is required with customers. Overall this establishment is a beauty that is only able to be seen by the grace and dedication of the staff.

We have stayed in several hotels during the pandemic in California, Nevada, and Arizona. This was the ONLY hotel whose staff did not wear a mask during the check in process, despite the mask mandate in California. It caused us to wonder what other basic safety mandates the hotel might be ignoring. In addition, the facilities were unclean and aging, and the breakfast consisted only of cold cereal and yogurt, with no beverage or hot meal options at all. We will not stay at this hotel again.

Competent and caring staff, whom goes the length to make sure your stay is satisfactory. Rooms are spacious, sanitized, and safe. Favorite amenities thus far has been the beautiful oval shaped sink (an art piece in itself) and the complimentary breakfast, although limited due to COVID-19 it is still healthy, and filling. Last, but not least the value is quite affordable if comparing the relative rate to what you get elsewhere. Best bang for your buck, hands down :)
