Stayed here as a family group. Front desk service was good and the hotel is easily accessible but other than that, I wasn't too impressed. My room had a funny musty smell to it, noticed some mold on the air conditioning unit. Walls were thin, I could hear relatives in the room next door snoring. Family in the room next...

Stayed last night at the hotel. Front desk check-in was fast and simple. Room as nice and spacious. However, the wireless internet in the room as almost too slow to do anything. The evening snack was small tacos, but it was just meat and cheese in a taco shell. The meat did not taste good at all. There was no...

Thank you for your review. I appreciate your honesty about your stay with us. We host a guest reception each Tuesday and Wednesday evening which is in appreciation for your business and is complimentary. It's laid out as more of an appetizer and not meant to be a full meal. We also are ,by law, unable to provide alcoholic beverages...

We've stayed in several places here over the years and this is by far the very best! Not only are the rooms great, the bed and pillows comfortable (and I am picky), but the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. It is near the freeway and there are several eating establishments within 1/2 -1 mile or closer. They...

We were on an epic 23 day cross country trip. This hotel was a good price, the staff gave friendly great service, and it met our needs. Denise was the hostess and was the best! She had a guest reception with great snacks which was such a gift! She was so friendly and welcoming!
