This hotel is an older hotel. I enjoyed the layout as it works well with families. Pool / basketball had a nice central location. The bathrooms in the room were small and they didn't have rooms which were suites. The rooms were clean but the hotel could use a face lift.

This seems to be the holiday inn that corporate forgot about. Entire hotel needs remodeled and updated to get out of the 80s. Paid $129 night which seems eat over priced for what you get.

The room was fine. Smelled a bit musty but I always travel with a scented candle for this reason. The pool area was nice and big. The rooms were alright but the bathroom wasn't cleaned well. Someone else's hair in the tub. The beds were comfortable. Included breakfast would have been nice.

The desk staff were nice! I like to start with a positive. I was told I was upgraded to my room. It was on the court side. Not outside window so a very dark room unless you open your blinds to the courtside. I sounds like the window side of the hotel is noisy from the freeway traffic so not...

Surprised to read so many bad reviews on this property. It is the old design Holiday Inn. Kind of cool to see it still functioning. I would think families would love this property with all there is to do inside. If you like quiet seek a room near the restaurant and not by the pool area. Our room was extremely...

I agree with the other reviewers saying this hotel is in need of renovations. My bigger frustration is the rec center in the middle of the facility that's basically right outside all the rooms. There's the swimming pool, hot tub, foosball, arcade, etc. There's also basketball hoops and a volleyball net. The windows in my room (and most others) overlook...

Wow I could certainly understand how frustrating this could be. I apologize that this room type did work out for you, approximately one third of our guest rooms do over look the pool and recreation areas. I sure hope that you give us another try, if we get you into a room that is not near the pool and rec...

“To be near the activities center, you need to choose a room location, or it is a bit of a walk from the hotel wings.”
