The affordable price and small locally-based chain drew me to this location for a 1-night stay during a business trip.
My large, but odd room was a "lobby king", not adjacent to any outside wall. I've stayed in lots of Euro-style hotel rooms like that, but instead of just being entirely indoors, this room had a large window that opened onto a service corridor (I think). The blinds didn't quite cover this window either (it would have been easy enough to peek in from the hallway).
Room decor was decent. There was a lot of green/eco signage which was welcome, but the recycle bin was missing...
The wi-fi was free, but truly awful, even in the middle of the night, as I tried to get work done. My wifi connection was good, just the outbound link seemed all but unusable.
There was a lot of loud, creaky noise from upstairs. If I had been trying to sleep instead of work, it would have woken me up.
The large open lobby superficially reminded me of an Embassy Suites. There's a bar/restaurant in the lobby with a happy hour (nice touch). It's easy to find the hotel (off a major road) and garage parking is free. Staff we very nice and friendly on both check-in and check-out.
I liked the idea of this place, but being unable to work or to sleep well makes this Not Recommended. Try the Moorpark instead (same chain).
