Don't expect that a king suite is actually a suite. It was cool up until I looked in the jacuzzi tub. It was quite filthy. I book this room in particular because it was my husband's bday. I wanted something local, special and soothing. I ended up receiving a discount, and I also requested gloves and cleaning solution. I cleaned...

Where to begin. The bottom sheet on the bed was too small and couldn't even be tucked in. When I flipped back the covers a small red piece of a straw fell onto the floor. White powder in the straw.....hmmm! Old cigarette butt on floor by wall. Dirty stained towel. Head board was broken and repaired with silver duct tape....

Stayed just one night. Older motel but our room and bathroom was very clean. Bed and pillows were more comfortable than at the more expensive resort, in Mendocino County, we stayed at for 7 days before coming here. There wasn't a bottle of hair conditioner but that was probably an over site. Only complaint was the "free" breakfast was only...

I got three rooms for my whole family at this hotel which is straight across a Safeway supermarket. We replenished at the supermarket and bought water plus snacks there before going to San Francisco to sight see each morning. There are some rooms that need air conditioner upgrade as some of the controls don't work that great. The rooms and...

We have lowered our expectations for this hotel/lodge/Inn. So when we checked in and saw the room we did not feel disappointed. The room is definitely not new, a little dark at night and the toilet bowl is old (with discoloration at the bottom- looks like the white color was scraped). But for the price and location it was definitely...

I was exhausted from driving and took a chance on checking in at 11:00 am. The Asian gentleman in the front registration desk was super compassionate and gave me the wonderful room I needed early. He totally tried to accommodate me. He was super friendly and super professional. Room was quiet and good size for the price. Nice area, I...
