beds were comfy, room was clean. it was overall a relaxing stay with no issues. This place is walking distance to the Flower Fields and to the outlet mall. So much convenience just across the street.

Stairs only to second floor. Room was partially furnished

The air conditioner is weak, their is no microwave, nothing special

Easy access to everything

It was clean. The property is located near shipping outlets.

Peggy was great in getting us checked in and helpful with local info. Thx

Front desk people so nice. Didn’t have regular room cleaning bc of Covid but still a pleasant experience.

I booked a premium king room, they gave me a double queen room next to a barking dog. I was not out there on pleasure and the one thing I was looking forward to during my trip was the room. The pictures of the hotel were very misleading I believed there was a living area with a fireplace in every room and a jacuzzi tub as well. The n picture did not specify a certain type of room.

We stayed for one night, so far so good. I would love to book again next time. Thank you.

Near the outlet malls. But near the freeway traffic noise as well.

Staff were outstanding!! Accommodations were great and comfortable, location excellent also.

Close to Legoland with free shuttle. Hot breakfast.

During our two day stay, the room was not made up between day one and day two.

On the positive, the hotel was close to shopping and great places to eat and visit. On the negative side, there are many issues. The room was dark, even with all the lights on. When you open the slider door curtains, you do get enough light, but you lose your privacy. The bathroom doors and floor were water damaged with spots of mold The bathroom tub also did not drain when we arrived, but issue was quickly repaired by staff. But the big negative was when we woke up on our final morning we were greeted by a dead cockroach in the bathroom. Even though all the staff were excellent, because of the above room issues, we will not return to this place in the future.

Place was run down. Our family slept on Springs because the mattresses were so terrible.
