4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Picturesque views.. Sits right on the waterfront. huge park & wharf across from it. The Hotel is situated In old Downtown Stockton right next to the Events center & stadium. Rooms are modern & clean. Staff very friendly & accommodating. WIFI works excellent, refridge & Micro in all rooms. Large pool area & many Lounge chairs to relax & take in the views. Came here for an energy training (saveonmyutilities.myambit.com) The place has small to medium sized conference rooms

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the water

We have stayed in Stockton on several occasions for work travel. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. Rooms are very nice, nice grounds and the restaurant and bar are good.

I would like to particularly thank Maya at the front desk and Kevin of the restaurant bar for their friendliness and professionalism although all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Wonderful place. In town for our kids basketball tournament at UOP. Decided to stay Friday and Saturday. Best location, walked next door to Banner Island Stadium to see Pablo Sandoval play with San Jose vs. Ports, again on Saturday night with a fireworks show after. It was nice to be able to just walk back and crash, rest, and have our sons ready for their games in the mornings. Courtyard and pool is a great focal point, very inviting party atmosphere, great views. We enjoyed the area playing ping-pong, drinks and dinner at the pool and lounge tables. Charles, served us with every request and made us feel like Kings and Queens. Thank you Charles, you make this place special and deserve a raise! Our sons played well in their tournament. Stockton is 1 1/2 hrs away and never imagined it was such a wonderful place to visit.

My stay was very last minute but they treat me as if I had been planning for weeks. The staff was amazing at the registration desk to Angie Guzman taking care of every need that we requested. I highly recommend this property and it provides a softer side of Stockton. The room was very well kept and it was very spacious and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the décor is very class in the room. The food is great and the outdoor activities are unique to any guests. You can play ping pong, a game of pool or just relax in the pool area. I must stay if you are ever in Stockton.

Room Tip: Every room is great!

In my Business, Projects can last for quite some time. I found this Hotel, actually recommended by friends at a bar in Stockton, and absolutely fell in love with it. Jean, the Manager, gave me a tour of the property, and quoted me a very reasonable price and I started my move in. The Hotel is very modern, state of the art amenities, view of the Sacramento river from my room, huge courtyard and pool. Jean and her staff are the most accomadating and friendly people I have had the privledge to meet. Chris, the Food and Beverage Manager, runs a tight ship and the restaurant food is excellent. Thanks Jean!!! I will be here until August of 2013, Love it here!!

Room Tip: 4th floor view of the Courtyard and the river.

We had a very nice stay at the Hotel. The only thing that bothered me that we were at a miniature show and decided to have our lunch there in the ballroom. 'we were given menus which listed our lunch at $9.99. When we got our ticket, it was listed at $10.99. We questioned this and was told they did not have time to change the prices on the menus. We find this totally unacceptable. I realize it was only a dollar difference, but it was fraud stating one price and charged another. We had our dinner the Friday night at the bar and it was wonderful. The young man at the bar told us to order only 1 pizza for the two of us as it was a very large pizza. I felt this was very courteous of him to suggest this. The pizza was wonderful. What a pleasant place to stay - clean. The older man at the desk was a little bit coarse. The young lady was a darling. Enough said.
