We stayed two nights here, mostly for its good location to the airport and downtown. It is an old hotel, which isn't a problem in itself if it is kept up. Checking in was easy. The room was average and relatively clean (the bath grout could use better cleaning). The beds were comfortable enough and the pillows good. There are only two floors to the hotel, so the first floor windows face the parking lot - not so great, and the second floor windows face a fire station across the street - not so great when they get calls in the middle of the night. The hotel is next to the freeway, making it easy to get where you're going, and super close the the airport.
The toilet in our bathroom kept running after flushing. Since it had taken so long earlier in the day to ask a question at the front counter (no one was around), I decided it would be quicker to try and fix it myself than call and wait. I stuck my arm into the tank and re-hooked the plastic chain that had come off because it was too short. Luckily, I know how to do this, but some people might not. Anyway, who wants to stick their arm in a hotel toilet tank anyway? Definitely not the highlight of our stay. (Should have gotten a discount for fixing their toilet !)
They offer a full breakfast, but be sure you are there first thing in the morning. Once they run out of something, if there is less than an hour remaining for breakfast (which ends at 10 am), they will not make more. Both mornings we arrived for breakfast at 9:30 am. One morning they were out of bacon but would not make more - "we're closing soon", and the second morning they were out of biscuits - same excuse "we can't make more, we're closing soon". In fact, they don't wait until 10am to close, they start packing it all up at 9:40. I told my son to run up to the counter and grab what he might want because they were putting everything away 20 minutes earlier than we expected. We ate our breakfast while the hotel staff wiped tables and threw away trash around us. Not very appetiting.
The second morning they were also out of milk, so he couldn't have cereal. No biscuits, no cereal. He had a banana and toast. (The first morning we asked if there were more bananas. They brought out more, but all were covered with black spots - too ripe! The second morning the bananas were better.) The woman working the breakfast bar was not friendly and a bit short when we asked about replenishing the empty trays.
The lobby computer worked fine;. In room, I could use my iPad, then printed out boarding passes in the lobby. No problem there.
We got a note in our room that there were a slew of car break-ins in the area, so that wasn't particuarly reassuring. But we never leave valuables in our car anyway.
