    for $200 I would have expected a box of kleenex! Nope, the only "extras" were two tiny slivers of soap. Bathroom was not clean, moldy shower, and the roughest towels I have EVER seen!!

    Pros: It was relatively quiet. They did have free Wi-fi.



    The worst hotel we've ever stayed. They have to CHANGE their ROOM KEEPERS immediately by the following reasons. 1. Bad odor in the room 2. Dirty toilet bowl inside & outside 3. Dusty room floor has be well vacuumed 4. No plastic & styrofoam cup in the room 5. No hair dryer If they fix the problems I'll give them 3 stars. Only good thing is the people work at the front dest was friendly.

    Cons: Cleaness

    Location: Close to the fwy 101 but noisy


    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    You get what you pay for

    Didnt have a lot of money and was booking last minute. It was easily the cheapest choice in the area. Location is right off the freeway, and right next to the onramp, which is both great (access) and terrible (you hear semi's going by). Staff was very nice and friendly. Room had 1 bed, thin pillows. The shower's head was odd and pulsed out water in a very uncomfortable manner, but temperature was great. The sink did leak a little though. Not enough electrical sockets. You had the pair in the bathroom, and a pair behind the tv (had to take out tv ones just to charge phone). But at the price I payed, I kinda expected such things.

    Une honte pour le prix

    Cet hôtel ne travaille pas avec hô alors que nous avions réservé depuis aout 2015. Quel suivi de la part d'Hô Heureusement il restait 2 chambres et le gérant a bien voulu nous les accorder. Mais hôtel monde très mal entretenu et pas le petit déjeuner continental qui était promis et piscine pas accessible. Et pour le même prix nous avons eu des hôtels très bien ailleurs
