Got there at 8:30 pm. Had a prepaid reservation. Clerk was not welcoming. Wanted 50 dollar cash deposit. After I refused, she gave me key grudgingly. Room felt not clean, freeway nearby loud in room, grounds had minimum care.

I was surprised, the rooms are very clean and nice. Price is affordable. It exceeded my expectations. The front desk manager was very friendly. He gave me some flyers and recommended some good places nearby.

Stayed at this hotel recently with my family. Needed a place to stay in the area and this hotel met our needs. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Property didn't offer breakfast but did offer a discount for the IHOP next door... Would definitely stay if I were in the area again.

I must say that this was one of the worst hotel stays of my life. Backs up to a freeway, said close to sea world but it was not close. Room was run down and tired. Light bulbs burnt out, dated décor, smoky smell and furnishings. Must also be a transient housing hotel as there were many undesirable people staying...

No refunds the sign says, stains and hairs on the pillows and sheets, hobos rent the rooms too, Cigarette burns in the blankets, I'm actually using one of my t shirts as a pillow case. This place should be closed down immediately!! Not even Anthony...
