All in all it was a pleasant stay with a very friendly staff. It is a no frills hotel and you are getting what you pay for. It was clean, safe and functional. The restaurant and bar were basic - East Coast Diner style. Very convenient on and off for The Interstate 5. It is a good 10 to 15...

It was very impressive when we first walked into the hotel that the young male receptionist was so warm and welcoming that made our stay like a home. The room was impressive too with a huge desk that allowed me doing some business while my children were enjoying themselves in the pool. Spacious bathroom and modern fitting. Very pleasant stay

We stayed here for an overnight in the city this past weekend and it was an absolute joy. The front desk staff were great and made sure that we knew where we were going. There was free parking with a security guard which made us feel very safe. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which came in very handy...

If you are looking for a place to stay, sleep, and take a shower, this is your place. I believe the nightly rate is too high for what you get. The tv is the only modern aspect of the room. The decor is outdated and needs an upgrade. There is a gap under the door you could probably slide a...

We were two guys attending a conference in the Hotel and everything was as good as it could be. Nice room, clean, quite, comfortable. The staff is very good, particularly David, who went the extra yards to help me with a telephone problem that was not even a hotel problem, it was my cell phone. He took his valuable time...

Hotel was a little old, could have you too little upkeep. The pool was really nice. The hot tub was nice. The rooms were clean. The staff was really nice. We would definitely go here again. It is in a nice section of town with lots of things to do

OUTSATNDING PLACE TO STAY!! Dora & David at the front desk are the ultimate in hospitality. They always have a smile and happy to see you along with helping you in any way that they can. The rooms were always clean and at any time you passed an employee they said hello with a smile and would always open doors...
