This was a practical choice for a couple of my friends and I to stay in all together. It was spacious, and clean and in such a great location. We were able to walk around the Hillcrest area and have lots of choices of restaurants and shops in close proximity. And good ones at that. Management was nice and aided... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute and in less than an hour, we had a suite. The staff was super friendly and helpful. You couldn't ask for a better location. It was right off the freeway and everything was within walking distance. When I make it back to this coast, I will stay again

Stayed at the Sommerset as a last minute get away. I would highly recommend it. A lot of bang for your buck. Very clean, no problems. Easy check in. Stayed in the one bedroom suite, 8 minutes from downtown. 8 minutes from old town. Perfect location, standard breakfast fare. Easy to see why they have earned the Trip Advisor 4... More

We had a one bedroom suite, which was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The only drawback was there was only one mirror, and it was in the bathroom. I wish there was at least one other mirror, outside of the bathroom. The staff was amazing! Martha, in the breakfast room, was very friendly and accommodating. She was able to get anything... More

This place is very dated, with no views and absolutely no justification for their crushing "what event is in town so we can exploit them" ridiculously variable rates. Our baby wiped his chin across the breakfast room window and it came back BLACK! Disgusting! Breakfast is generic "Twinkies and Tang" venue. Parking costs extra. Belagio rates with an old Motel...

The hotel was ideally situated in Hillcrest which is an excellent community with many shops/ bars/ restaurants. It is located very near the main highway and is 1m drive from the nearest highway exit. The hotel has plenty of onsite parking and is in a quiet location. The check-in process was smooth although there is a refundable deposit for a... More

Our spacious corner room with kitchen and separate bedroom (#115) was modestly decorated with old appliances and in need of renovations. There was a musty/mouldy odor in the room (probably the carpet). The kitchen had the bare minimum equipment (4 of each). The staff at the front desk were unfriendly but helpful.
