We stayed in this hotel for two nights during our vacation with Tours4fun- the distances from LAX airport is about 45 minutes drive in the fast lane. The hotel is in a isolated spot - it appears very impressive and good to look at - but there are few things that do need improvement - if the room is facing the highway - then forget about the sleep- the first time around there was only one staff handling the arrivals - I think she was the only employee at that time of the night - she was very abrupt and rude - could do with some training - the second time around David at the reception was helpful but he too was alone - he was very pleasant and helpful and smiling. The room we had had no lights working - the bathroom made a big racket - the heating was not proper - the coffe maker splattered across and had cheap filters. The room was clean but they could do with more staff and help - The breakfast was good - but the drive from the highway to the hotel is horrible due to the traffic congestion. I would hate to spend so much time in traffic to get to this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the highway on the top floor

I was very pleased with this hotel. The location is in what I would call a little commercial park, surrounded by companies by day and a few restaurants by night. (There is a Kinko's conveniently located right across from the hotel, within the park.) It's close to a few restaurants within walking distance, and a large variety of diversified non-chain restaurants by car (including Thai and Korean!) as well as your typical chain restaurants. There's a Starbucks right across the street.

The hotel, from the outside and lobby, looked a bit dated. But the room itself was great! Clearly renovated recently, as the carpet and bed linens looked brand new. Plenty of pillows and the bed was comfortable, and a beautiful and large flat screen tv in the room with many channels. The bathroom was small, but it was clean. My only complaint was that the curtain on the shower wouldn't stay closed, and the fan in the shower wasn't adequate to clear the steam.

It's a little cramped around the bathroom, because the bathroom is small and the vanity is on the outside, sort of in the walkway to get to the rest of the room (right after you enter the room). But there's a very spacious desk which divides the bedroom from the living area, which is also very spacious.

I thought the breakfast was fine - waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, some whole fruit, and packages of oatmeal. I was a little disappointed that on the second morning the coffee was out, and it was still early and not a lot of people down there. I just went back to the room and made some up there with the in-room coffee pot. The room also came with a microwave and refrigerator, conveniently hidden in a tall cabinet which holds the tv.

The fitness center was larger than I expected. It had a couple treadmills, a stairmaster, one or two bikes, and a bunch of weight-lifting equipment. It, too, had a nice flatscreen tv. I wish they would have provided sanitizing wipes for the machines like so many other hotels do.

I loved the water dispenser in the lobby, and used it often to refill the free bottle of water they provide you with upon arrival.

All-in-all, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I had a room on the 6th floor right across from the elevator, and it was perfect. I couldn't he...

Stayed here 1 night for our recent trip to Knott's Berry Farm. Got a good deal from Hotwire. Overall our stay was good. I wasn't expecting much from this hotel, but they actually keep the property looking good. The rooms are not the greatest but for an overnight stay they are perfect, especially if you are going to be out and about all day. The Beds were nice and comfortable.
The breakfast area is small and gets very crowded. Not much of a selection, your basic continental items. For what i payed ($55 a night) i would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Knotts.

Room Tip: good deal through Hotwire.

Stayed here for central area to tourist attractions. 10 mins to Disney, 25 mins to Universal, 1 hr to Legoland. Marie Callendars right across the street, easy off and on highway access.

Stayed on Xmas day and few days after. Hotel was busy with a Japense group staying, so breakfast area was always busy but they kept it well stocked even at busiest times.

Outside area is nice, rooms are all inside. Had a suite room-1 king bed, pullout queen, balcony. Small toliet/tub area. Tub stopper was corroded and rub was slippery. When first turned water on, it appeared to have rust in it, but was fine after ran a few seconds.

Place is fine if you are just
Looking for a reasonable place to sleep and not planning to spend entire time in hotel.

Laundry on 2nd & 4th floor. $1 wash & $1 dry. No coin changer or soap dispenser in laundry room, but did have at front desk.

This hotel is ok if you are looking for a middle of the road place and with no frills or extra's. Very busy when I was there with Disney traffic must have been a very large group staying there for that because at breakfast you could not move or find a place to sit. The view is ok with the palm trees and I did have a upgraded room but still disappointing. Staff was friendly and location is great to the interstate.

Enjoyed four night stay except for the two barking dogs in nearby room. Tacky, tacky !! Location is in clean and quiet commercial area very close to highway on-ramp but not close to the noise of it. Four good mid-priced restaurants within easy walking distance. Very safe area only a few miles from major attractions.
