“Great hotel for its price range”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

The hotel was in a great spot, very close to the airport (hotel also offered us a free shuttle from and to LAX), and also close to some of the SoCal amusement parks (Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm). All in all, the hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations. Our stay was very comfortable and we saved a lot of money by staying at this hotel. We also thought the furnishing was good, pool was clean, our room was very clean---would recommend to others looking to stay at a hotel comfortably and cheaply.

My wife and I stayed here for a week in April. We needed a home base to see all the sights that interested us and also visit a son in the marines getting ready to ship out overseas. This hotel met ALL of our needs. From check in to check out the location, room, and most importantly the service were outstanding. The area was close enough to easily access all the L.A./Hollywood/Anaheim sites we wanted to see but was far enough 'out' that getting around was easy. The staff was over the top friendly and helpful, the breakfast was one of the best 'free' breakfasts we've had. I have never bothered to send a review before but felt I had to reward this hotel and the people that work here.

Room Tip: The small Mexican grocery store around the corner has some fantastic bakery and other essentials alo...

I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone or go there again! The place is flithy! My feet were black from walking barefoot on the rug in our room. The room smelt like someone may have smoked in it, even though it was a nonsmoking room. The bed appeared clean. Our window was facing the parking lot, hard to sleep with people outside smoking & talking most of the night. I could hear the two guests in the rooms on each side of us. One was running water all the time and I could see lights on from a door that was adjorning to our room. The other couple was up late having 'a great time' and we could hear EVERYTHING! The room above us, I think they were running in their room all night. Go to the front desk & most times no one was there. The breakfast buffet was gross, good if you are into asian food I guess! I would never go there again!

Room Tip: If you want a good room find another hotel to stay at!

We had difficulty looking foe room. Was kind a hesitant to get one from this hotel. Oh it surprised and amazed me. Front desk staff was very helpful and makes our stay a lot more memorable.
I now find a new haven and a place if I want to stay and relax.
Thanks

We booked this hotel through Hotwire which we have booked many hotels previously and always been happy with the ratings. Anyhow, this was to be a short overnight stay before departing on our Disney cruise with our two small children-the family vacation of a lifetime!!.....Our check in was smooth as everything was done in advance until we inquired about a shuttle service to the port in the morning and the man at the desk was so rude to us because we had booked through Hotwire. Anyhow, up to the room...if you ignore the condition of the elevator and walls (dirty, disgusting).

The room smelled horrible. The toilet was leaking all over the floor and the ceiling had a massive leak/bubble like it was going to fall in-and the best part- A COCKROACH actually walked along the wall and went into the back of the hairdryer where it attached to the wall!!

At the front desk the gentleman basically didn't really care, he just said yeah, yeah call Hotwire. So we waited on the street for the next cab-in a seedy area, with two small children and dashed to the nearest clean hotel.

Please do not stay here!

Room Tip: Don't Stay Here!

We planned a weekend at the beach around this hotel August 17-19. It is easy to get to off the 405 only three lights north.

The room we were in was 111. This is set up for handicapped individuals as it has the roll in shower which is also easy on my knees since I do not have to step over the rim of a tub.

Room was spacious, bed comfy. Sheets and towels all freshly laundered although the towels had stains on them.

Breakfast, very disappointing. The usual High Carb foods, a waffle maker, potato and sausage, but no eggs when I checked first thing when they opened. No yogurt or fresh fruit except some canned Pears.

We will be checking elsewhere the next time we come to SoCal. Manhattan Beach was a bust due to parking and dirty beach. However we found a gem at Seal Beach. More on that later.

Room Tip: We were in 111, set up for physically challenged people. Hardwood floors, roll in shower, no tub to...
