A relative was having surgery so I took a room nearby using frequent guest points to avoid having to do an hour commute for each visit. The hotel is not much to look at outside. Two sections, separated by a Mexican restaurant that was well patronized, a small pool and a steaming hot tub which looked tempting on this rainy, chilly night. I received a warm and very efficient welcome in the lobby, which adjoins the area where a very liberal free breakfast is offered. Juices and sodas are available all the time and you can buy microwaveable meals.
So outside is a little plain. But INSIDE, my room was quite nice with beige wall covering, hardwood floors, marble where it should be, a pants press, microwave, hot plate, fridge, dishes and coffee maker (with coffee), a double-headed shower which made me wish I could shower with a friend..
What else? Fresh furniture, clean linens, both DVD and VHS players were hooked to the flat screen tv. The room was spacious and quiet, set back from El Camino. The Patels and staff running the place were extremely responsive, able to put me into my room even though I was there an hour before the official check in time. Towels, while thinish, were ample and the bathroom was well stocked with accessories (mouthwash, lotion etc). The kicker was that as a Priority Club member, I received a complimentary gift bag of two waters, some toothpaste and deodorant. Nice place!
The place is a little more expensive than some of the other nearby hotels, but worth the comfort and safety. They do offer an El Camino Hospital special rate which shaves their lowest internet rate by about $50 off the official lowest rate on their web site.
