- Shuttle does not operate from midnight to 4 am. - I very much appreciate the front desk (Juliet) helping me get to hotel without having to take taxi (because of mistaken inference by other employee about shuttle operation early in the morning.) - Older facility but it has all the necessities i.e. coffee maker, refrig, flat screen, etc. and...

Clean but very run down place. No Internet connection during the day or night. (I had to go to an other hotel lobby to get online) Very disappointing the internet connection! TV is cutting out when watching. Water in the shower is running very slow, takes forever to have a shower. Front desk staff are very cold and not really...

My title sums it all up. This is pretty much a no frills airport hotel but they have a very decent sized room with a very comfortable bed, recently renovated bathrooms, bath and body works toiletries, complimentary tea, coffee, a fridge, coffee machine and a microwave. Am very satisfied with this hotel overall and would recommend it to anyone who...

Yes, this is an old Comfort Inn, and a little shabby around the edges. But it doesn't deserve the bad reviews it has received, IMHO. While I'd agree that it isn't worth $200 a night, I paid well south of $100, and for what I paid, it was well worth it. The front desk staff were polite and friendly, there...

I found this Hotel (really a poorly repainted Motel 6 wannabe). Through Hotel Tonight. Paid over $200 including tax. Other customers reported rates much lower. There is no onsite cafe. The cafe in the adjoining hotel serves this property. Three of us at the bar ordered dinner. Two meals were not edible. Cafe did not charge for mistakes. They offered...

My tour group brought us to the hotel. The lobby was separated from the hotel wing and we had to lug our luggages into the cramped and small hallway. Stayed at the west wing. The room was nice and clean. It has a microwave much to our relief. The place is closed to hotel and maybe silicon valley but from...

We weren't exactly thrilled to end our Priceline search with this property, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it was actually a decent value. This is one of those hotels that seems like it's been rebranded about five times over the last decade, but the staff was great to us and it's in a perfect location near the freeway....

Horrible, horrible service. The front desk people don't know what they're doing. Bad attitude and talk with accusatory tone. Virtually no management. The room itself is pretty basic. Only stay if there are no other choice. Would not pay more than $60 for a room in this hotel.
