“Nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Very nice clean hotel. Once we walked in to the lobby we were greeted by a friendly clerk. Lobby smelled very clean. Got a great rate. Room was clean and roomy. Had a great night. Family and I were happy with our overall stay.

The room was dirty and bathtub moldy, and the heater didn't work well at all! We were freezing all night. My husband went to the front desk to ask for an extra blanket, they said they would bring one but never did. :-( Horrible place. The metal door to our room had knuckle marks in it where someone had beaten on the door.

We regret learning about your less than satisfactory experience with us. We promise to do more to ensure that these issues are resolved by additional housekeeping attention and making sure extra blankets are readily available at the front desk. We would appreciate your future booking so that we can demonstrate to you that your experience was an exception and not the norm. You can contact me directly for future bookings.

We stayed in this hotel during our road trip to northern California. The room was pretty run down. Carpet was extremely dirty. I was scared to allow my daughter walk on that one. As I'd done online payment, i stayed there for a night. The pictures on site are way more likable than actual room. Overall the property was stinking.
Breakfast was average. Nothing to complain about it.

Thank you for staying with us . We apologize for the inconvenience that you've experienced. While this is no excuse, we've been having quite a bit of rain and dirt has been tracking into the rooms. Rest assured that we clean and vacuum each and every room at check out but, sometimes dirt will not appear until a few days later when it dries out. Also, we are in the process of washing all of our carpets to ensure that they are clean and fresh. We hope that you will give us another try in the near future.

Over the past 3 years I've stayed at a vast number of motels across the country. Every time I have come to SoCal, I have been disappointed in many ways, until now.

The staff are pleasant, professional and articulate. The ambience was upscale. The rooms had a homey feeling. The breakfast was adequate and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance.

And best of all, the price was the best I have seen from NorCal to AZ to TX to SC to NY!!
