Stayed here for a baseball tourney and it turned out to be a nice place, good breakfast, and particularly great hospitality from the night shift gentleman at the front desk, Steve. Clearly enjoys workin here. We'll definitely be back!

Stayed here with our baseball team for a weekend tournament. Hotel was clean and in a convenient location. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Mitch and Allan. The continental breakfast was also very good, and included some hot foods, such as pancakes, eggs, and sausage.

We stayed at this hotel last year and were very pleased. This time was different. We requested a top floor and received the second floor. The people above us were up all night stomping and walking around. I finally called the front desk at midnight to complain. Also, I reserved 2 queen size beds through tripadvisor and got one king...

Ive stayed here 3-7 nights a year for the past 5 years, and over those years its been a great value around $100 sometimes less. This last time was $140, and I think that's fair but no longer the great value it was. You get a nice clean modern room, with a smallish but marbled bathroom. If I hear the...

My family and I had a 4 night reservation at the nearby Comfort Suites but had to check out early because it was so bad. We were lucky the this hotel had rooms available on such short notice. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious. We were in a room with 2 beds which were full size and not queens...

My husband and I found a good deal through Hotwire which considers this a 3 star hotel. It is clean and very nice for what it is. Great to have free wifi and breakfast. We weren't bothered by freeway noise. I would recommend if you can asking for a room on the third floor as we could hear a lot...

We have stayed here at least three times now. Always a big, clean room. Not real crowded, but everyone's probably out enjoying the sunshine. Good breakfast with hot and cold choices. Pool is fine, but no spa. That's the only negative. Nice patio area to shoot the breeze outside.

Good hotel, very comfortable rooms and good structure. It is located up on a hill, not within walking distance from anything, so you must have a car. Breakfast is good but not great, with plastic dishes and cutlery. The pool is quite nice. Would reccomend it for people who don't mind having to use a car to go everywhere.

A bit difficult to find on iPhone maps and location disappointing upon finding. With the expansion of the 5 freeway, the hotel can't be any closer to the freeway. If you enjoy a hearty walk to the 99 Cent Store, then you will be content. Ask for western upper level room unless you enjoy the shaking and quaking and thunderous...

We had a nice overnighter but just wanted to clarify a few points; Thanks to all who warned about the difficulty finding the hotel. Such a steep hill so unless one is in good shape, walking any where is quite the feat so one needs a car. (I saw someone wrote that they have a shuttle to the beach but...
