There are a lot of things that this hotel "gets" that other hotels don't seem to understand. They offer free wifi, free parking and complimentary water bottles in the room. So they don't nickel and dime you the way many other hotels do, and this goes a long way for me. I purchased a special deal for a club level room which included breakfast a free happy hour well drink voucher each day. We didn't take advantage of the drinks, but we did enjoy the breakfast each day. It was a nice spread including pastries, toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal and some kind of egg sandwhich or burrito each day. It was a nice way to start the day and a good deal. Bear in mind, this is a 3 star hotel - not a luxury resort, so if are a budget traveler and you go in with that expectation you will be fine.
The hotel is clean and well maintained. The staff is courteous. The whirlpool and pool are nice, although they need to clean out the whirlpool more frequently (it often had a collection of leaves from a nearby tree). There were a couple of mechancial problems that did not ruin our stay, but really do need some attention by the hotel. The remote device on the sleep number bed was non responsive a majority of the time. The plumbing was noisy, so every time you flush the toilet you heard a loud groaning noise. We also heard this when neighboring rooms flushed the toilet.
You do need to be aware of the location of the hotel. It is located in the business section of town, so there is not much to do within walking distance of the hotel. Certainly this is not the hotel's fault, but just want future travelers to be aware. If you do not have a car, this would be problematic, but we did have a car so many wonderful attractions (Balboa Island, Fashion Island, Crystal Cove Beach) were only 10-20 minutes away. All in all, when you weigh the pros and cons, I found it was a good value for the money.
