Excellent customer service from Ashneel at the front desk. Pool looked nice but I didn't use it during my stay. Stayed two nights and the AC felt wonderful. My only complaint was the TV remote: it would skip 3 or 4 channels every time you pressed the up or down channel button, meaning that you had to manually key in... More

Stayed at this property for one night as we were in town for medical appointments. The Guest Service arepa at the desk were both very nice. Beds were comfortable and we did get a good nights sleep. The floor in the room was absolutely filthy.

My husband and I had some business here when coming over from Reno and we thought it would be good to stay the night as the lodging was downtown. It started the minute we parked our car after check-in. The car park area was like the ghetto... youngsters were playing loud music from their cars, some were seen chasing and... More

Unforeseen circumstances dictated that my family and I stay in this dump. It's only real good aspect is it's three blocks to Sutter hospital. An extended stay in the hospital and then a baby in NICU has made this my only option. - First, the place is located in a dirty, grungy area RIGHT off the freeway (which is literally... More

First impression came from guy in office. He didn't get off the computer until 10 minutes after I walked in. Room wasn't ready, OK, so I left and came back later. Now a woman did talk to me, and told me that my request for a room at the "back" would not be quiet as there was a bar directly... More

Absolutely do not bring your family to this hotel. Don't compromise safety for price. Security is a joke and the night we stayed shots were fired from a group of men fighting outside our room. The hotel had plenty of opportunity to respond or even try to defuse the situation before it got to the point of gun violence. One... More
