“Great Impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This place is very well located, very affordable, it has great facilities, and a great staff too. I was there as a company manager for a musical which included 33 people, and no one had a single complaint. This is exactly what i look for while on tour.

Hotel is conveniently located on HWY 111 with Ralphs supermarket and the mall next door. The surrounding area seemed safe and clean. Exterior and room were up to date with little wear and tear. Great housekeeping job done to keep room very clean. We stayed in the suite and it's got some nice amenities such as bar sink, mini fridge, microwave, and two flat HD TV's. Again, very clean bathroom, fresh bed sheets, fluffy pillows. Didn't use other facilities but there are fitness room, Jacuzzi, pool, and tennis court attached. Overall a very pleasant stay.

A hotel I often go back to when I am in the area and they always deliver. A great breakfast where you order the dishes directly from the chef. The hotel has a big pool. The in-room internet could, however, be a little faster and the fitness center should be upgraded.
Close to shopping and dining.

Good breakfast and friendly staff..hotel was average. I got a great deal on Hotwire and was very happy. The pool was too cold but jacuzzi was nice and hot. Good restaurants within walking distance. I would stay again only with discounted rate..would never pay over $75 per night!

Bacon and eggs breakfast cooked to order by a friendly staff.....What a way to start a day! The room was attractively furnished with a sitting area and comfortable sofa. The bed was very inviting and comfortable. The location was very central and convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

After reading the reviews, I was excited to stay at this hotel. I definitely did not see how this hotel received a 4 star rating on trip advisor and 85% recommended on Hotwire. First, this is a motel not hotel. I would give it a healthy two star at most. The room was in need of new paint and TLC. Very blah. I think the main floor rooms had laminate flooring but not the 3rd floor. The fixtures in the room are old and tired and 1/2 lamps had lights that did not work. The big energy saver bulbs were a nice touch. The bathroom shower seems original and it's just old. The Internet was so slow that I could not send this review from the motel- it wouldn't work. The deck has chipped paint and old furniture. Being close to a major road brings sirens and some traffic noise. Also, being in a motel you hear a number of parking lot doors closing which is distracting. The pros: Very nice staff. Service was prompt. Also, the breakfast was very good. It's made to order and fresh. Finally the AC was perfect. Overall, Not impressed. Unless you are getting a really good deal, I'd look elsewhere. Highly disappointing for a Plus property.
