Didn't have any reservation before our long trip in western coastline. Found this on Hotels.com. Seemed to be a good choice. Clean and comfortable, big room with fridge and microwave. Also found out close to big shopping mall with a lot of nice brands. Breakfast was ok for being in the states, we swedes are a bit choosy about selection

We arrived about 9:30-10pm. Lady was friendly and nice. We didn't need a lot of directions to any place. Staff was friendly. Prices affordable for 2 nights. Paid through a 3rd party. No hitches or cliches in the reservation or upon check out. WiFi is slow but works.

For a lower cost last minute stay I was very surprised to say the least. The front desk staff was extremely nice.

No complaints, room large, clean TV channel choice was good. The WiFi was reliable and offered a speedy connection. Breakfast free and standard affair, although no decaf coffee. I did find the mattress to be overly soft.

Nice room , clean and neat - No problems , well one .. Internet was evidently using a telegrapher to translate computer info into dots and dashes! SLOW!! Breakfast was about what you expect from a continental breakfast .. Biscuits , cereal and coffee .. Not a biggie anyway , we got a decent price ..
