If your room is pool side be prepared for significant traffic noise starting at 4am due to the nearby highway. If you are pool side be prepared for airplane landing approaches until midnight. I have stayed at airports near airports before without the noise. I often thought the windows were possibly open but they weren't. I believe the window construction...

The staff immediately found it and drove it to my location for me! These guys really saved my day. I want to personally thank Myra and Jimmy for taking charge and making...

The hotel is very long with healthy walks from the front desk. They have elevators in three locations, so check out the one closet to your room and car. My check in experience...

I spent four nights here on a business trip, and the experience was wonderful. Of special note were the team that prepares and serves breakfast: Gabriel, Leticia, Veronica, and Cinthia - they could not have been more friendly and attentive to my needs.

It's as good a deal as anywhere else in the area. Judy don't ask for quarters to use the laundry facilities. They're a little snarky about saying no. The buffet is pretty good and the restaurant service was always great.
