it was what I expected

It was an average hotel. The breakfast wasn't great. The room smelled like old play dough. They didn't have extra toothpaste at the front desk. I didn't want to go out at night, but it was cheap and it was close to caltech. So I might stay there again if I have to go back. Maybe not as long though.

good clean room

Sure this is not a five star hotel, but it is a great, clean room at an economical price. The staff was very nice. My kids and I played in the heated pool- and stayed in there a long time. The breakfast is ordinary hotel fare-- with one great addition-- a berry mix to put on your waffles. This made the breakfast good for me. My room had a kitchenette on it. Con: road noise was not terrible, but you could hear it. Better to get a room on the back side of the hotel.

The Mediterranean Cafe is the best Lebanese food I have had in the USA. It is a half mile walk from the hotel. There are a lot of restaurants, but none better than this one!
