Was headed south, was what we was doing, on this California venture, things getting loose. Circling SF, Monterey, Carmel, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Palm Desert, Big Sur. 18 days of papered bliss before flights, things deteriorating, going souther. Front desk has no room ready. Laundry room being monopolized by single, white female with sub-zero social appreciation of obligation to...

Nice experience here. The rooms are large and bathrooms have an above average shower. The location is right off the freeway and close to some newer shopping centers. A short drive from campus. I liked the on site cafe which offered several "fancy" Starbucks options and lots of healthy food choices.
