It’s a few star hotel, not really cheap. Rooms are comfortable, but dirty; my feet were black after walking barefoot... also, we found hair on the bed and spiderwebs on some lamps. So, it’s comfortable, staff is nice; but for over $160 I’m sure you can find a cleaner place.

We had a late check in called ahead and they got up for us to check us in. The rooms were nice. Neighborhood was not so good had bumms come eat with us in the breakfastroom and going through the trash and asktrays in the morning. Owner did address this issue right away. She was very kind. Breakfast room felt like we were eating in a closet.

As is the case with so many of these hotels, this quality inn was a standard issue hotel designed to simply collect money from busy or weary travelers. No character and nothing to make anyone want to stay longer than they need to. Bland rooms surrounding a bland parking lot with nothing to detract from incessant drone of very nearby freeway. Bed was comfortable and clean enough. Breakfast was tasteless mush. Hope not to have to return.

Stayed for a night here, there is a sticky smell in the room which i had to cope with. Other than that, everything was okay. Stayed on the ground level and could hear the car comes in and out. There is “in n out” and Mac D’s around and one rather good Mexican restaurant as well.

I have stayed in many Quality inns all over USA. Always had a goo thing to say. But this one is an exception. The staff is not helpful at all bordeline rude. We arrived at night and I rang the bell 5 times, finally I called a phone number posted on the window and finally someone answered and gave us our keys. In the morning at 7 am we went to have breakfast. It was a joke, by 7am there was nothing to eat. We went to the office and said that some items were needed at the breakfast bar. The guy told us they had put everything for breakfast and that was it. No more, order from the owner and if we wanted we could take it up with him. DO NOT PAY EXTRA FOR BREAKFAST CAUSE THERE AINT ANY DO NOT EXPECT ANY HELP FROM THEIR STAFF I dont write bad replies but this one deserves it.
