It took 10 hours and 4 different front desk clerks to get checked in to this place. Nobody seemed to know what they were doing, and other guests were having trouble with check-in, too. One couple was told that the hotel had cancelled their reservation because they were overbooked, but the couple had reserved the room a month in advance....

OK, the first thing you gotta realize about this place is that you are getting decent lodging in a prime location for a budget price. Our room was large, and delightfully shabby. These are individually owned units, so quality of furnishings will vary. Our room had a giant king-size mattress (low quality) and thin scratchy sheets. The kitchen was reasonably...

This hotel is the worst hotel I've ever stayed. They sold a suite with a full kitchen, but the stove, microwave, A/C, and coffee maker, none of them worked. All of them were out of order. They said they sold the room that shouldn't have, and told us sorry and took care of it, but nothing happens until now. They...

The first thing that you should be clear about is that this is NOT a hotel - it is a motel with albeit large suite size rooms. There is no in room phone to call the desk. There is no lobby, no restaurant. There is no alarm clock. The industrial style block buildings are arranged so that there are 4...

International Hotels and suites gave me a great room. As for the service it was excellent.The location is right in the middle of El Paseo, better known as the desert Rodeo Drive. In addition to that, there are some of the best lounges and restaurants that you could ever find. And then, last but not least there is the low...

The rooms are HUGE and the kitchen is great for someone (like me) that doesn't want to eat out all the time. Room was clean, but dated and a little shabby. Which in it's own way makes this place cool. But they do need to have more lamps in the rooms and ones that our placed better. I rated the...

I would not stay here again. 1. Broken heating in most rooms. We froze the first night then saw a small space heater in room. 2. No phone in room 3. Kitchen sink clogs 4. Hair in shower area 5. Patio furniture dirty and had to wipe before sitting down .6. Continental breakfast is a joke! It starts at 9:00am!...

Our stay here was meet with much anticipation. The website, booking .com gave this place a 3 star rating. Boy was that ever wrong. It is more like a one star at best. Yes the room was larger than most with a full kitchenette, but that doesn't make up for the overall condition of the room. The room was not...

The outside of the place doesn't do it justice. The room was very nice: spacious with a balcony view of the pool. My boyfriend and I were here for a car meet up and had one whole section of the hotel reserved so the pool was blocked off for us. It was amazing as some of the rooms patios opened...
