Traveling with 3 adults, 3 children and a dog. We were given 2 rooms, right next to each other. We were immediately greeted by housekeeping and maintenance came into the room to make sure the doors between our rooms opened. The front desk staff was friendly. When I first walked Into the room, the air was a bit musty, but after running the air conditioner, it cleared right up. The beds were adequately comfortable and I slept well. There wasn't a huge selection to choose from for the continental breakfast, but enough to get us on the road. The shower was nice and hot, despite the length.
The nice thing about this hotel is it is right off the freeway and there were several places to eat and fuel our vehicle.
Now.... For the sort of bad.... I was a little concerned with the isolated feel of our room. It was far back from the main office. When we got there, our kids immediately wanted in the pool. After 5 minutes of playing, I ushered them back to our room, because I noticed an undercover cop pulling his gun and holding it on a man right behind where my kids were playing and another cop car speeding up. My kids were a little unsettled and asked that we please do to return there on the trip home.
(After this happened, the front desk did call to make sure we were okay. They were very friendly. I do not have any customer service complaints)
