Everything was clean. The beds, pillows, bedding were very comfortable. The room was very quiet, the staff was friendly. Highly recommend this hotel. The decor, carpet and furnishings were very up to date. Thoroughly enjoyed the nights of rest!

We stayed in this hotel the first weekend of October with my daughter's soccer team for a tournament. When we checked in Friday night, our floor was still finishing up renovations, but a few hours later everything was completed and looked amazing. Our rooms were clean and looked amazing. Hotel staff as a whole was accommodating and great. We did...

This hotel is going through a renovation and at 8am on a Saturday morning workman started sanding the walls outside our room, which not only woke us up but filled the hallway with dust. I did like some of the "new" changes that are being made. Black out shades, lighting in the bathroom and new huge mattresses were excellent! Breakfast...

Rooms are being renovated, floor by floor. The end result is a contemporary space that is attractive and spacious. Easy access off the freeway. Good overall value. The pool water was a bit cloudy. We're it not for that, I'd have rated it excellent. Hint: if you book directly, you'll get a free breakfast. Not so with all hotel booking...

Super nice and efficient check in. Room is adequate; beds are in need of replacement--mine had a large dip in the middle of it. The handicap bathroom is spacious but the tub is so tall that I can't imagine a handicapped person being able to get into it. Certainly not a wheelchair accessible tub or shower and you would have...
