Perfect place to stay for events at Golden One. Two block walk to the arena. Our room was clean and bed and pillows were comfortable. We had breakfast and dimmer at the on site restaurant. Both meals were above average. We will definitely stay here for future events.

Hi Enharmonic10110, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting a review. While it is nice to know that you liked our location and staff, I was also quite concerned that our heater and WiFi caused you problems.

The location was the key reason I chose this hotel and it was the only reason I would come back. There were not microwaves or frigs in the units, parking is extra (as you would expect for a downtown place), the beds were a little hard. Breakfast was $15 each for 2 eggs, bacon,

Wish i had stayed here longer but unfortunately only slept and left in a hurry. Rooms were large and bathroom too and there was lots of shopping opportunities nearby. Very close to the Amtrak station was really the reason i booked here and its a 6 minutes walk away. Maybe next

While the hotel has a tired and aging feel to It, the rooms are comfortable but the best secret is their unassuming loling reastaurant. Are there twice and also had a buffet lunch catered for 200. Every meal was a wonderful experience in gasrtonomy! The Salmon salad at lunch

Yes. Coffee maker is a Kuerig. As a previously certified programmer for a Univac 1100, GE440, and Fortran 77 It was confusing on how to execute the 12 step auto start sequence for the Kuerig especially not having had a cup of coffee yet, but eventually worked out. Made a decent cup of Joe unlike those feckless and pathetic drip makers in other hotels.

I wasn't flying when I stayed here, however considering how close it is to the freeway, airport shuttle service is likely. Check out their website or call them directly to verify this as well as the best directions to Discovery Park.

"I suggest a northerly facing room to cut down on the freeway noises. The train station isn't that obtrusive."
"Rooms to the south have a view of the Capital Mall. No refrigerator or microwave in non-suite rooms"
"don't face the freeway"
"Don't stay on I-5 side of hotel"
"We could hear the Hair Drying being used in the next room --- but what would you expect."
