“way overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

this RI is ok but like all hotels around LA and Santa Clarita is overpriced by at least 40 $.
Dont pay more than 80 bucks for this place. ITs not worth more than that. Truly.

Stayed April 2012, traveled on business

Stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend. I wish I had paid attention to the fact that pets are allowed at this hotel. Overall the experience was pleasant and I would stay again. However, The halls smelled like wet dog. It was not overwhelming, but rather a subtle odor as if it had been there forever. Maybe I have a sensitive nose, because my boyfriend didn't smell anything. The odor alone would not keep me from this hotel because it was only in the hall. Our room was very clean and odor free. I give an average rating because the decor was rather dated, there was limited parking (especially in the back where our room was), the front desk was not unfriendly, but rather business like and, of course, the smelly hallway.

What I did enjoy very much about this hotel was the full kitchen (minus an oven). This made it feel a little more homey as the living room and kitchen are separated from the bedroom and bathroom. I also like that it is very close to the freeway, grocery stores and retail shopping. The area is very nice and a safe place to stay for families. Saw a decent size pool and a singles tennis court (we didn't use) that both looked well kept.

Considering the price per night and the fact that we were in a nice neighborhood with a full kitchen, bed and bathroom, the money was well spent.

Room Tip: 3rd floor toward the back gives a better view.

We traveled to Stevenson Ranch for New Year's to ride in A Ride For Life, the first annual charity bike ride honoring George Hincapie. The hotel is located right off the freeway, in hotel/restaurant row along I5. Easy access to the freeway.

Residence Inn by Marriott is definitely a favorite choice for us. You know what you are going to get, a very nice room, clean, spacious and with full kitchen. Our teen daughters traveled with us and they had a separate room. It had 2 queen beds and was extremely spacious. Our room was a 1 bedroom with a king bed.

One downside was they did not have WIFI in the individual rooms though there was wired internet access (does anyone use that anymore?). They did offer WIFI in the public areas which included the lobby and breakfast room.

Breakfast was good and plentiful with lots to choose from. It is a great amenity to have a full breakfast included in the room rate. If you are in a rush or miss the breakfast hour, McDonalds is right next door (they have oatmeal!) and many other restaurant options are very close by.

While in the area our teen daughters spent one afternoon at Six Flags/Magic Mountain. They had never been there though we have driven past the huge roller coaster amusement park many times on our way to Disneyland. They did like the roller coasters but they have been spoiled by Disneyland and did not like the VERY LONG LINES at Magic Mountain. They also complained about the lack of cleanliness at the park compared to D-Land. I got the tickets online for about $38 which is much cheaper than their walk up price.

The bike ride was fun and a nice way to end the year. There were some hills to climb so that added to the challenge.

We were driving from Northern California down to Anaheim to visit family and Disneyland and we decided to leave a day early to get over the grapevine and beat the rain... Glad we did, because we did indeed beat the rain. What we neglected to do, however, was research where to stay on the way. Once we got to Santa Clarita we decided we needed to find a place to stay for the night. We started out at the Hampton Inn only to find out that their rooms only offer two beds, no roll-away beds are available. (Since we were traveling with our high school aged daughter and college aged son we needed three beds.) The staff at the front desk were quite helpful, they said that the Residence Inn across the parking lot would be perfect for us. They gave me the number and suggested I call right then and there, which I did. "Kyle with a smile" at the Residence Inn took our information and saved a room for us. We made our way across the parking lot, and waited about five minutes for the front desk clerk to come out and register us and assign us a room. We were tired and cranky, but once we opened the door to our very spacious room we were happy. Two beds, sofa bed, full kitchen, flat screen TV... Clean and tidy! It was perfect! The next morning before checking out and heading down to Anaheim we had breakfast. It was great. Waffles, eggs, breakfast meat, fresh fruit, muffins, bagels, toast, juice, coffee, tea, soda... Everything you could ask for; the place is great. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

Nice and clean rooms. Convenient if more than two people travel together and get a room with 2 bedrooms. It has everything incl. kitchen and utilities. Nice and serviceminded staff and housekeeping as well as the breakfast restaurant. Well managed hotel. The best recommendations.

We stayed here for a quick trip over to Magic Mountain (3 1/2 miles away). We pricelined our hotel and lucked out with this gem. The suite had a queen bed in one room and living room/ kitchen in the other. Queen bed was very comfortable. Pillows were a little small in size. Full size kitchen was stocked with necessary items.

Great breakfast in the morning.

I would recommend this hotel and will definitely go back.
