We stayed here because our other choices were booked out. It was functional and convenient with plentiful parking and was fully booked due to a baseball weekend. It is showing signs of wear and tear and is a little tired.
For some reason I found the male front desk staff gruff and offhand, whereas the females were extremely helpful. The one exception was David, the concierge who was great. He fixed our phone and helped us with our internet which, when going, was fine. There was ample parking and although the hotel was busy, our room was quiet except for the loud snorer next door.
There are many dining chains close by but you need to take care if crossing the busy freeway. The breakfast in Emmets was adequate and the service was friendly.
We found it expensive, probably due to the high demand, but it did the job, although a little rough around the edges.
