I stayed at this hotel in January for a conference and was excited about checking it out when I looked at the website. Unfortunately, it wasn't as "nice" and "luxurious" as in the promotions. I didn't sleep the first night because the traffic from the freeway was so loud in the room. Thankfully, they moved me to the other side...

Was here for business for a couple nights and another for a staycation. The staff is very professional and helpful. The higher the floors the nicer the rooms. The room I stayed in was very sleek and modern. It is part of the Choice Hotels group which I was shocked to hear. As a rewards member they gave me complimentary...

We attended my cousin's wedding and this hotel was so close to the church and reception area. It was easy for my husband and I to find good restaurants and shopping centers. The hotel is clean and the staff is so friendly. They also allow pets, so nice!

The inside of the hotel has been totally redone to have a very mid-century modern, yet contemporary vibe. My room was brand new with a great bathroom (roomy, rainfall shower head, sleek tile) and the rest of the room was clean and new. Plus, there was a mini-fridge. The free WiFi was reliable and fast for a hotel. The only...

I typically do not prefer to stay at Choice Hotels as I am platinum member with IHG, Hilton Honors and Marriott. However, with my most recent stay at The Hills Hotel, my opinion has been changed. This property is extremely well kept and the service is hands down as good if not better than any IHG, Hilton or Marriott. If...

Although this hotel was a little further from the attraction we were going to than we had anticipated it was still well worth it. The staff we encountered at check in were so very helpful. Due to the event we were heading to we decided to see if it was possible to at least get our room keys so that...

This is a hotel that was purchased recently from the Holiday Inn Chain. What a difference! They have done a wonderful job remodeling this hotel. It is fresh, light and relaxing. I recently attended a luncheon there; the service was prompt, the lighting for the room was beautiful. The design of the banquet room is very practical, the bar was...

Unfortunately not every room has the ability to connect to the internet so my recommendation to anyone staying here.. please check the internet connection before you unpack your bags because once you do they will move you to another room but its a real inconvenience.. The

The location of a once great hotel....not sure how else to start this review. I have stayed here 4 times totaling over 20 nights and have yet to have 1 good experience. I can look past the odd interior, the out dates (and dilapidated) state of the rooms for in the end all hotels look the same through your eye-lids,...

I love this place! I've been staying here whenever I'm in the area for business and the service is always top notch and nice renovated rooms! I wish that the hallways is a little bit brighter. If I may suggest, please change the hallways color scheme to a brighter and lighter atmosphere. Other than that, everything is great!! They recently...
