“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

Very clean; nice staff; great location; and affordable. Rooms were very clean - no dust in the corners. Called after we arrived to make sure we were all set. Definitely would stay here again especially as affordable in an area know for it's expense

We stayed there for 4 days. Room was clean and comfortable. Second day that we were there we moved to a room upstairs that had a big terrace with a view of courtyard, pool and the beautiful mountains. Room had a sliding door that led to terrace and also had a front door. Room was very nice and clean and spacious. Very comfortable room with a hot tub and fireplace. The best part was that there was no extra charge for the upstairs room. We really enjoyed our stay there. We will definitely stay there again next time we go back. It is also a very quiet place to stay.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs. Had a big terrace with sliding door and front door. Had a beautiful view of...

This is definitely a remnant of a bygone era, 1950s/60s America. The courtyard/pool area is well-suited for families with children. The outdoor pool is large and sparkling clean, hot tub not functioning. There's an overall feeling of spaciousness. This property is not crowded, probably due to the outside appearance of age. Our room was very clean and seemed newly renovated. We could tell other rooms were in the process of sprucing up. Got an excellent price on Priceline Express Deals, so it was definitely worth the price for our two night stay. Just wish we there had been a fridge and microwave but that would have required an upgrade from the Priceline deal. Oh well.
