Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a decent stay for the price. I guess the only real thing I have to sort of complain about, is the view. Our view was of an old, unkempt parking lot. Looked like Eastern Europe in a bad way. The free breakfast is always something I look forward too at least once during a stay, especially hot breakfast....

We came here for a soccer tournament. Rosie Mohr, the general manager was great. She set up a group rate and room block for my daughters team. We were able to get a very good rate, and truly appreciated it. The rooms were great, all suites and newly remodeled (so it seemed) the staff was very friendly and the breakfast...

We stayed here for our trip to Southern California. It is right off the freeway, which is nice. The breakfast was better than some of my recent stays at other places. My kids loved how housekeeping put their stuffed animals on the center of the bed everyday. We would come back and they would run to see if they were...

They gave us a smoking room and I did not ask for one, we are highly allergic so cigarettes and they would accommodate us, worst experience ever. We are still stuffed up and have allergies from it!!!!

Won't stay anywhere else!. All rooms have a sitting room and a bedroom. On this last trip stayed one night at another way more expensive hotel and the next morning called this Best Western Plus. Yeah, they had a room for us.

It was a very nice place. It was just out of hearing distance from traffic but dinning and shopping are just minutes away. Staff was personable and professional. The room was clean and very comfortable.

Nothing is wrong with this hotel ... it's just a bit off. The first thing is the truly bizarre room design which has the only sink on the counter next to the TV and right in front of the bed! I was alone so it didn't matter, but if I was with my wife, we had better be on the...

Room was clean and comfortable. I could get to my room easily and felt secure within the environment. The people at the front desk were friendly and efficient. I had no complaints during my stay and it was in an area with everything that I needed close by.
