This was the first time I booked a hotel through the Southwest Air Reservations line. The photos from the hotel looked ordinary and rates reasonable. The location of the hotel is marginal, at best. The hotel and our room were a dump. I would never have stayed if we didn't already have reservations - and I thought about leaving anyway. The place is dirty, old, in ill repair, and looks like it belonged near the bus station, which it is. Very seedy. Looks like skid row. Street people came in off the streets for the continental breakfast. I walked on the dirty carpet in my socks. The old bath tub wouldn't stop leaking. I couldn't wait to get home and take a hot bath.

There were dead grasshoppers under the blankets of the bed. It was kind of dirty. Plumbing problems in our first room and other rooms that we saw them working on. The hotel was gross.

I have been traveling from Bay Area to Stockton very often. I become a regular customer of this hotel. I like it because its very convenient location, which is downtown of Stockton. The rooms are clean, they all have micro wave, refrigerator and free wireless internet access. Lots of parking spaces. The Manager is nice, the service is excellent.

We needed to stay in Stockton to attend my daughter's graduation from UOP on May 17, 2008. Booked this hotel thru Hotwire so I didn't know the hotel until after I had paid for it. After reading the negative reviews I was apprehensive but had hoped that maybe ownership had changed and things were improving. Not! It started at check-in where my credit card was run for the full room price. After a little convincing the clerk finally believed me that I had pre-paid with Hotwire and tore up the charge. Let's hope it doesn't appear on my statement!

We walked into the very cramped room and turned on the antique window air conditioner since the room was stifling. My teenage son (140 pounds) sat on the bed and the bed broke! One side was now 8 inches lower than the other. No remote for the T.V. After less than five minutes all of our white socks were black from the filthy carpet. Sent the kids down to the office to get coffee mugs and one more set of towels. Clerk told them no coffee cups until 7AM when the mugs would be in the lobby and you cannot have any towels since you were already alloted three sets. We had 4 people in our room who had to share towels because this hotel rations them like they were gold. Noisy, dump!

The parking lot is full and the security is weak so you cannot be secure with your vehicle because the neighborhood is undesireable. The owner allows people from neighboring buisinesses to rent his lot.
The breakfast was a joke.
The room was dirty. Very unsanitary and had roaches.
The night manager was very disrespectful and unproffesional.
The owners are very unproffessional and have no business working with the public. Unproffesional decisions and attitude.
I made arrangements to stay with my crew for over a month as we were working nearby , when I informed the manager I needed to check out he refused to make the financial agreement fair out of greed, therefore losing my business as well as my respect.

I will never stay here again...
