Anderson Island, Washington92 contributions47 helpful votes
We were just passing through on our way to Arizona when we stopped at this hotel. It’s an older hotel, but we’ll maintained, and here and there are hints of modernity — a waterfall sink, a nice selection of toiletries. Staff is friendly. An odd thing I noticed when I checked in: Even though I always prepay my hotel stays, this was the first not to ask for my credit card. Staff were friendly — both front desk and cleaning staff. We were advised the pool temperature was probably too cold for swimming; not a problem for us. I’d stay here again. One suggestion for management: Please put anti-slip strips in the bathtub. I nearly fell when I stepped in to take a shower.

Thank you so much for choosing our hotel to stay at as part of your road trip to Arizona. We really appreciate your business and the wonderful review too. Please stay safe out there, and regarding the bathtub, all of our rooms have a rubber bath mat in the room to assist with bathing. If possible, can you let me know which room you had so we can make sure there is on in that room. Thank you again for being our guest.

The only reason I didn’t give a 5 is bc my ac was not cold enough for my sleep, but that is personal. The room was newly remodeled & had coffee maker, micro, frig with freezer, bathroom was new & renov with good PURE products:body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc.the closet had iron, board, hangers, safe & lug rack. There is self serve laundry: 2 washing machines $2(quarters)& 2 dryers($1.50). The outdoor pool IS open(8/26/20)!👏in a decent safe area with food options. Liked the way the entire property was secure. All indoor/outdoor areas have doors or gates that need key access. Breakfast was 6-10am in lobby with coffee station & sac BF with an apple, NV granola bar, bag of muffin bites & water(covid). Headed from Sacramento to Reno, this was only a few min off the Route. Recommend!

Stayed 2 nights. Ok hotel. Beds were very high. I’m 5.2 and I had a lot of trouble getting into bed. We could hear the people next door. No seat on the toilet. That made it very difficult to get dressed or even put your clothes there when taking a shower. (No hook on the door either.) I was nervous about something falling into the toilet bowl. The towels were very thin and old. The heater made so much noise the first night. Woke me up every time it came on. We turned it off the second night and froze. This hotel does have free WiFi and a very nice free breakfast. Overall it’s an ok place for one night. I won’t be returning.

Hello, and thank you for sharing your review. We are so sorry that we failed to meet your expectations, and especially that you had a loud neighboring room and also that your heater was noisy. This is certainly not the norm at our hotel, as we try our best to make sure each of our guests have an enjoyable and relaxing stay with us. We are very glad that you liked our breakfast and Wi-Fi too. We would like to take a look at the heating unit in your room, so if you have the time, we would truly appreciate you providing the room number that you were in. Thank you again for being our guest and for letting us know how your stay was.

2 queen beds, plenty of space to use on desk, good selection of TV channels and a "above average" free breakfast. Also within 2 short blocks of the comedy club "Punchline". It took only 6 minutes to walk there. Great service at Arden Star Hotel also!
