Where to begin. The hotel is a dump and it's abundantly clear ownership has not put a nickel into the place for decades. Room was musty and probably remodeled in the 1970s (does that count as historic?). Indoor pool reeked of mildew (you could see black mold coming out of the cracks between ceiling tiles!). Outdoor pool is not heated and was too cold for kids. The wood paneling in the game room is falling down. The banquet room was in a basement and smelled of mold which was less offensive than the 1950s era decor. And the food...just plain awful. Worse than the worst cafeteria food I have eaten. If you want to visit this hotel, just grab a drink on the porch--the view is nice but the traffic noise from the freeway is terrible. BTW--on the website you can't see how close this place is to the freeway, but it is right on it.
