So, I must admit that I booked this hotel through Priceline....has I read the review prior, then I would not have stayed. I actually tried to figure out how I could get out of the stay once I read the review and was prepared to suck up the lost cash and just find another place of it was that bad. Well, I guess since I expected the worst, it wasn't so bad. Here for college visits, I basically needed a cheap place for a few nights. The building needs a lot of remodeling and appears to only operate at about 40-50% occupancy...my guess. The workout area is joke...looked very outdated and a hazard but lucky for me, there was a LA Fitness 5 miles away.
Based on the upkeep of the common areas of the hotel, I didn't dare to get in the pool. The room was fine...very basic but I didn't have the issue with mold or damaged wall. The furniture, tv and bathroom could use updating but overall, it was ok. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Here's the big question....would I stay here again....yes, if it was for the same purpose and price then I would.
Oh...it's right off the freeway too and across from a Mexican restaurant.
Skip the breakfast unless you just want juice and coffee.
