Not a good stay

Not enough parking spaces, they sent me to a hotel down the block to park, and then there was not enough room there. Room was in very poor condition, smelled old, bathroom had peeling paint. Not a good place to stay. We had two kids with us, arrived about midnight and if we were not so tired, we would have looked for another hotel. The only good thing was that it's across the street from attractions and you can walk to the baseball stadium. I do not recommend this hotel at all.

Disappointed ordinary

The room was ok, but just like any other cheaper hotel. The modern decor was slightly better than the usual floral design you often get but didn't wow me. Rooms were very average. Nothing great. Room was not sparkling clean but clean enough. Pool area was nice but location of it, being right in front by the parking took it from "oh this is nice to oh ok never mind". there was garbage in the elevator. Was told no double bed rooms facing the pool. The only really good thing were the beds themselves. Very comfortable comforter and pillows. Otherwise just very ordinary and by the pictures online I thought it was going to be a little different and fun. disappointed.

Average Motel

Honestly this hotel was very disappointing. We got the room for a good deal,, but it's not worth the regular rate of over $100 per night.

A bit noisy

This hotel is a remodel, but done very well. The good points include good looking rooms, comfortable beds, flat screen tv, clean pool, new fitness equipment. The only bad points were that there was a gap under out door that let in cold air, and that this hotel is NOISY!!! The walls seem paper thin, and you can hear your neighbors music as if it was in your room. We did comment to the staff one night about the noise, and he did walk through the hotel to talk to other rooms. Highly appreciated gesture, but did not solve any issue. The staff was excellent to us, and the housekeeping staff took great care of the rooms. Another great point to make is that the staff let us check in at 9am. Due to our early arrival, this was a great help. Due to the noise level, I am unsure if we would stay in this hotel again.

Family Weekend

The kids enjoyed looking at the toy robots displayed in the hotel lobby. I was given a choice of which floor for my room and I chose the top floor (4th floor). The usual expected noises (street traffic, close by restaurant, pool goers, other guests walking by/talking) was considerably less because of staying on the 4th floor. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The only thing lacking in the room was a microwave.

Great location and re-model

The location was great for Great America and visiting people in the Bay Area. Close to freways yet quiet. Beds were very comfortable with feather pillows and comforter. The room was decorated with sleek furnishings, but could be a little bigger for 4 people. Every request was met quickly and courteously. IHOP connected right building.

The modern theme was a nice change from the traditional hotel furniture. the lobby was cute, the staff was friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to do a late check out that we needed. The ihop next door was pretty convenient too.
