This lodge was booked using Expedia Mystery for 3 nights. The room is large but musty. The bed is uncomfortable and we found hairs on the bed and bathroom. It provided A/C, free internet and parking but it was first come, first serve. The Inn is just right off the freeway, be on the lookout or you will miss the... More

Fine for somewhere to stick your head after a long day out. Unfortunately very noisy due to proximity of the main road that isn't far from the freeway. Decent air con. Lots of people hanging around the street in front, also had people banging on our door in the dead of night. Would probably spend more money and stay somewhere... More

We were left without a hotel room due to a booking screw up. This hotel was able to accommodate us quickly and for 2 nights. It is very run down, and in a sketchy part of town, however the beds were clean, and comfortable. Staff was helpful

We arrived and were checked in very quickly by a very friendly member of staff. The room was very run down, marks on the wall where brackets should be, lamp shade hanging off the wall, parts missing from the air conditioning unit (though it worked), no plugs in the plug holes, the list goes on. The room was very basic,... More

I ended up here because every other hotel was booked for the weekend, and with it being 60 to 80 dollars per night I caught myself thinking why not? When in all honesty I should of just kept looking farther away from the city instead of just settling. The door was not sealed properly there were cracks all long the... More

A little old but was clean and functional for overnight stay. It is not actually in the Downtown area despite the name which made it a little more difficult to get transport and food after 9pm. Bed was comfortable, shower hot and room clean. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was sufficient. My only grip was finding out it... More

I ended up here after all the hostels were booked up for the night. It's pretty far form the center of town, features sketchy clientele, the rooms are nothing to write home about, and it's right next to the highway, but if you're looking for a cheaper option to catch some sleep, and not somewhere to hang out, then this...

Very noisy, trash collected at 05:30AM with loud beeps, cranky bed, showerhead not working correctly. Had a shipment coming in received by front office - the tape seal was opened and re-closed with a regular tape on top of the customized seal - two items missing... I cannot be 100% sure it occurred there but this has never happened before... More

Not much to say about this hotel. It is very basic and not much to it. It has enough of the basics to make your stay comfortable. There is a seperatly room that has a random couch in it and nothing else in the room. Not sure why you would choose to sit in there because there isn't anything in... More

I grabbed this room through hotwire for the sunday following comic con. I had hoped to get as nice of a room as I had done before comic con. Nope. this room was terrible. There was mold around the tub, it smelled like they had permitted smoking in the room before (or someone had) and I even had some breathing... More
