“An OK experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a well kept property and if passing through this area it's a decent choice. However, if you're planning to visit the area for "fun" it's a bit out of the way. There was no refrigerator just an ice bucket and when it's 113 degrees that's a bit of a drawback. The ironing board could use a new pad; I don't like that cross pattern on my clothes. The air conditioning was very noisy but in that heat it worked well and that's what counts. There's no real restaurant here either but there's a very limited "cafe". Applebee's is next door and it was open. Morton's is close by and so is The Cork Tree but they didn't not appear to be open during the summer. There's a Ralph's market and a Rite Aid in the same complex as the two restaurants and they were handy for drinks and snacks. The room was clean and made up fairly early which was nice. No real issues but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay there again. I did get a very good deal though when booking early so if that's a criteria for you watch for their specials. From that perspective it was a great place for the money.

Room Tip: Facing the pool is nicer than facing the parking lot.

I stayed here for a weekend. The front desk staff was really very friendly, helpful and efficient. The pool was nice(staying in the summer, this is important). There is a VERY NEW shopping complex that you could probably walk to. I would definitely recommend this place and I hope to stay there again soon.

This hotel is small, clean and had friendly staff. They have a very small pool and water seemed kinda unclean by late afternoon with so many people going in and out. Our room was clean but housekeeping forgot to clean the toilet. It had some yellow urine spots from previous guest. It's just human error so I decided to wipe them out myself. I would stay here again if I need a place just to sleep in a clean and affordable room.

Reasonably priced property, close to the interstate but a ways from the center of town. Friendly and attentive staff, clean room with balcony and comfortable bed. Room was a bit on the small side, however, and cable TV was spotty. Otherwise, a decent choice.

We found this Courtyard to be everything we wanted: quiet, friendly, and centrally located to go anywhere in the valley. The staff was very friendly and helpful, There is a pool of adequate size and towels available. The rooms are clean and the Bistro has an attentive staff.

Room Tip: If driving from LA on I-10, take the Cook Street Exit, turning right on Frank Sinatra, not the Mont...
