The heater/air conditioner in our room did not work. The front desk was very helpful in relocating us to another room. The second room also had issues with the heater/air conditioner. On our 2nd night, my husband "researched" to find that the filter for the air conditioner/heater was FILTHY. He took out the filter and rinsed it in the tub....

I paid $100 to stay in a room covered in burn stains on the floor, stains on the couch, a jet tub that doesn't work, a sink that doesn't drain, and a repulsive burning rubber smell in the room. I would never stay here again or recommend this hotel.

we booked this hotel for a group stay for our cheerleaders and it was a horrible experience. Rooms were dirty this included food left by previous occupants in the refrigerator, dirty sheets and pillows, mold on the tub stopper, and one of our girls and her parents found flavored body latex and eyelashes in their room. Went down to the...

Comfortable, if a bit dated and in need of upgrading. Staff were friendly. Breakfast buffet was small but good. Beats the hell out of most of the other hotels along the street, most of which come with hot and cold running cockroaches.

We stayed in what was supposed to be their nicest room, the jacuzzi suite, but turns out it was just the most expensive. Upon arriving at 5:00pm, the room had not been cleaned (check in is 3:00pm) so we had to wait in the lobby with all of our baggage. Not a big deal I guess. Once housekeeping had finished...

Just say the online photos look great and when you arrive the lobby looks nice and the desk staff are friendly. The rooms are old, tired, disgusting, dirt, and whatever maintenance is done extremely sloppy manner. Noisy. Moldy. Broken fixtures. Drawers and closets that don't open or close properly. Too much bad to mention. Do not stay here.

Easy freeway access made getting around nice. The price was reasonable so we came back to stay again. The breakfast was good and ready early if you need to leave early. Really enjoyed the pool & hot tub!

The room was clean and the staff was very nice. Our room faced the freeway and noise from the trucks made you feel like they were in the room! It had a fridge and a microwave which was nice but no coffee pot!

The building is getting old, so the floors are noisy from upstairs neighbors, and you'll hear the people in the hall and in nearby rooms. The room is nicely equipped, although the mattress felt like it was getting up there in age. The carpet could use a cleaning. The food and drink options were nice in the morning, and there's...
