Just completed a stay at this property. Bottom line review is that this is a decent hotel, but really just average. I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid it in the future, but there's no reason for me to insist booking this property the next time I'm in town.
It's a motel, which is a little different than what I'm used to on business stays, and comes along with the usual motel issues. Parking is immediately outside of the room, and as the property fronts El Camino Real it can be quite noisy. Security didn't appear to be an issue at this location, but it's obviously less secure than a typical hotel. The walls/ceiling were very thin, and I could easily hear when my neighbours were up and about or talking. Cleanliness of the property and the room was not at all an issue although the wingback chair/ottoman were very old and shabby looking. The room had a very odd layout, with weird kind of kitchenette/bathroom combo area with a *small* toilet/shower room adjoining. The fan/light fixture in the toilet room sounded like a small prop plane whenever it was turned on. Big HD flat screen TV in the room, but no HD content available. There was a fridge and a microwave in the room as well.
The area around the hotel is safe, I walked around after dark with no problems at all. There is walmart, target, and whole foods in the area if you need provisions. There are numerous restaurants in the area. I didn't get the chance to try the included breakfast offerings, but I peeked in and the selection looked decent.
