Hotel is ok , but old, as well good location, you can walk to the restaurant area at old town. For one night stand just minutes from the airport is a good choice. They offer a shuttle to several restaurants and shops. A little renewing will help to erase the old view.

Nice family hotel with great location. Staff was very friendly and gave us a goid recommendation for dinner in Old Town, along with a coupon. Free parking and breakfast was very nice. Room was clean but felt very damp, especially the carpeting. Room partially faced freeway, but there was very little noise. Good stay and value

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left the staff couldn't have been more helpful and nothing seemed like a chore. I... More
