Comfortable, relaxing room

Loved the decor at this inn. The rooms definitely do not look as they appear outside. It was comfortable, neatly decorated. Had a good nights sleep!

Not bad for the price

We came to this place after staying at a much better hotel. The pictures, price, and location were exactly what my wife, two kids, and I were looking for. We got there, and the room was nice, but the pictures made it look a lot bigger. All in all, it was about the same size and quality of the lower price chain hotels, but a lot nicer looking rooms, more homey, ooh and They had satellite tv in the rooms, which was a definite plus! All that, and the customer service from the staff was amazing, but the location was a little seedy, kinda felt uneasy when we were smoking outside, and the gas station down the road was pretty ghetto. If I could go 2.5 Stars, I would.

Major Disappointment

We were told this hotel was a four star hotel. It may be a one star based on its location, the decor, the amenities and the bed. We did not spend the night. We used it to change clothes for our concert and then decided we would rather drive home than spend the night in that room. I'm not sure that the security lock on the door was working, cigarette burns on bathtub, cheap thin towels, no shampoo or soap, decor and general feel of the room.

gorgeous on the inside

close to freeways and it was gorgeous on the inside. looked sketch from the street though. and to get into the driveway you could easy miss the entrance.it was constantly packed with people! the parking is terrible :( and yea it was a little noisey but nothing horrible like other people said. i didnt eat at the restaurant. I asked for late check out last minute and the accommodated. i think the only reason i would stay again is the parking. and theres always people hanging around outside at night.

Not bad

The place was really very nice for the price range. Everything has been remodeled but the tub was not re surfaced replaced etc. So the experience was not so impressive once I found a shower with pealing paint all over it.
