This was so far one of the cheapest hotel I have stayed in. The room was a 86 degrees , hot like an oven when I entered. I had to turn on the AC and stay out for 30-40 min before the room was livable.

Budget Stay

Good place to stay for the price, althought it won't be around for much longer according to the staff. Will be rebuilt as a casino apparently.

Good night's stay

I stayed here years ago and that's the reason I went back. This time it was under new management. The house keeping staff could do a better job but over all it was a good stay for the price I paid. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the grounds were very clean. My daughter really enjoyed the hotel gardens and the pool! The shuttle to the airport was also very prompt and assisted my daughter and I with everything!

Always a nice get away

The staff here are really great and personable. They'll help you to your room and aren't the typical stiff personalities that you can come across in the hotel business. The rooms are clean, but a little outdated. There's a nice pool and large courtyard space to walk in. It's a nice little spot to get away locally, but still close enough to great food, drinks and shopping.

Worse than expected

I didn't have high expectations and the price was pretty good. I went to week long class here over 10 years ago and thought it was a nice place. Our room was small and did not smell great. The hallway smell like you stuck your face in a dirty cat litter box, the shower had mold and there were holes in the wall. Asked that a light bulb be replaced while we were out of the room and returned that evening it was not done. Waited almost 5 minutes for ice at the bar before getting it myself. I am not picky but I would not stay again

Great overall stay

The hotel's location adjacent to the VTA light rail system was ideal for my access to the Convention Center for the Gideons International Convention. The breakfast buffet was excellent way to start each day. Only blip was a power outage one morning.i highly recommend emergency lights be added to bathrooms to allow shower and shave during power outages.

Don't stay here!

The hotel grounds were nice but the rooms were very old and tattered. The noise all night was horrible about like staying at a Motel 6! Called security twice before they took care of the issue.

Family fun!

Rooms were clean, but they didn't leave enough towels and washcloths, but I left a note which solved the problem. We loved the pool!
