Stayed here for two nights ahead of a family wedding. After checking the Tripadvisor reviews of budget motels nearby we settled on this HI Ex. No bargain, but after a transatlantic flight we didn't want to compromise on quality. We weren't disappointed. Everything as described, everything in perfect working order, decor and fixtures in good condition, huge room (by European standards). The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the first floor at the front, facing the busy El Camino Real but the sound insulation was good and there was no intrusive street noise. Our room had a small fridge, a coffee maker, and a microwave, nice touches. The breakfast buffet was extensive, even with Asian-style items, but a little heavy on carbs. My wife is gluten-free so her choice was limited. Luckily she was also on a diet so didn't mind too much. We didn't use the swimming pool but it did look inviting, especially after a long flight, and was clearly well maintained. All in all a good quality base for short trips to the area, whether business or pleasure, if a little pricey for the brand.
