Helped us with a website double billing problem right away. Room and skill outdoor pool very well maintained. Juan very helpful for weekend breakfast. Would stay here again. Parking was right but free which saved us a lot compared to neighbouring hotels.

The hotel is in a very convenient location to my office and to great restaurants. The staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and includes breakfast everyday. I would recommend the hotel to anyone. There is covered parking as well.

The only problem I had here was the ability to hear people in the other rooms, both above and beside me. The walls seemed paper thin and I couldn't understand how with carpeted floors, the noise above was so loud. Maybe suggest the top floor! That was a bit of a bother, but it is a nice hotel with a...

This hotel is very unique. The layout is a bit off, with the lobby being a bit askew from where you park. That does not take away from it's charm though. The real prize is what's inside. The staff are great. Jesus was great with recommendations to local favorites around (Skosh Monahan's was my personal favorite). Housekeeping is top notch,...

I had an awesome experience from start to finish. The staff is extremely pleasant and Andrew at the front desk was very helpful and had a fantastic attitude. I will definitely book this place again when I'm back in the area!

I use the Holiday Inn Express hotels for my business travel, and I found this property one step up from some other HIE's. The staff I encountered were polite and professional. The property is well maintained and very clean. My room was in great condition. The breakfast was the standard HIE breakfast. The gym was adequate. The outdoor pool size...

As I pulled up to the hotel and parked in the small underground garage, I was thinking, "Uh Oh... What did I just get myself into?" The neighborhood is spotty, and as I walked up to the small lobby, it was clear that this is a much older hotel. I was preparing myself for the worst. Here's the thing -...

All in all I had a nice stay. My room was nice and clean and actually smelled good when I checked in. The location worked out well for me as I was able to walk to some good spots to eat in the area and I enjoyed running through some of the neighborhoods behind the hotel. My only areas of...

We started our vacation staying at this hotel because of the location to our family reunion and Disneyland. It was a nice hotel- very quiet and clean. There was some construction/painting going on during our visit but it wasn't disruptive like often times. The only complaint is that i think the maid may have pushed a button on the TV...

I arrived in the night, and was surprised to open curtain seeing all small houses/trailers surrounding in the morning. No way I can take a walk around the hotel. The breakfast is pretty good, varies of yogurts and fruit, egg, sausage, muffin, biscuit. For me it is just one night stay.
