Nice grounds can almost make you forget that it sits between two major freeways. Pretty pool area with jacuzzi and good bar/happy hour. Convenient location. But rooms a bit small and need sprucing up, but not bad. Small balcony overlooking pool, trees, and freeways. Nice staff. Very comfy feeling. DO not park at hotel for $22. You can park directly...

There was a lot of construction on the street right in front of The Garland, which made it a bit of an inconvenience to access. However, once we pulled into valet, the ambiance was welcoming. I...
