The new beds are super comfy. Good sized and quality flatscreen was nice too. Lending locker with juicers is welcome addition. Staff is great here and this is a nice quiet location. Good for business travel particularly if you enjoy making your own meals in lieu of eating out every meal while on the road.

Want to thank Dawn, the sales director as well as Daniel and Barnard, the people at the desk for a pleasant stay. The facility was clean and quiet. The rooms are laid out well for business travelers including a large desk and a comfortable office chair at the desk. Internet was free and non-intrusive. Even the on-site laundry has no... More

Was given a hard time after being charged twice on my credit card. I was not the only person who faced this issue. The issue got resolved on its own on the last day but I went through hell for more than 10 days with no real help.

They desk staff was friendly and helpful. It was just too loud there ask for non smoking room but we are pretty sure it had been smoked it. It was not a typical Marriott stay which I'm accustomed to but it was not the worst either. I would not stay again but if you are just look for a place... More

I was disappointed right away Upon my arrival. The couple in front of me was given a full description of the amenities of the Hotel/motel. The front desk person didn't even make 1 mention of any amenities but definitely didn't make me feel welcome. The title " suites " does not fit the usual suite. It's basically a 1 room... More

This place is very good if you are going to be staying for a long trip and don't want to eat out. The rooms are basically one bedroom apartments, with a Kitchenette, separate bedroom, and an on site laundry. My one complaint was that the morning of my departure the hot water ran out. They don't have a free breakfast,... More

Spent a night here visiting family in the area. Very clean, dog friendly, comfy beds, friendly front desk staff and easy parking! Starbucks, McDonalds, Pollo Loco, and KFC nearby. It's about 2 miles off the freeway but centrally located between the I-5 and I-405.

Located between n a very quiet area, this was the perfect place to rest and stay away from all the traffic of I-5. Our long trip was compensated with such comfortable place.
