i stayed on first floor, i didnt like breakfast, 1 banana and a granola bar

Great hotel, super convenient right off the freeway with fast food places literally in the same parking lot! Very friendly staff and very nice room with comfy beds and a good shower. If you need to stop on your way by, this is a great hotel to stay at.

Great place, I would stay here again. Also would recommend this place! Free breakfast, clean hotel and rooms!

Very bad service and management. Customer service was terrible.

The room was hot, when we turned on the AC it wouldn’t come on automatically so we had to put it in continuous fan mode. The ice maker was two rooms from us and when it came on at 5am it sounded like it was next door-very loud! Breakfast is from 6am-9am, we got there around 7 and there wasn’t any syrup in the container for waffles. I like the coffee, my waffles were a little softer than I like but they tasted good. The potatoes and eggs were very bland but there are enough condiments to fix them up. Overall an average stay.

Ok. Reasonably clean. Instant coffee at breakfast and then the worst part is the milk was spoiled. Don’t know if it was expired or just left out too long. Ruined the already bad coffee though. When I told breakfast attendant afterwards, she changed milk but wasn’t exactly apologetic. Told front desk at checkout but since I’d paid through Orbitz no discount or concession was offered.

Clean room, comfortable bed, good enough breakfast .Gas station, fast food restaurants. Everything you need for this price.

It was really nice a little too close by the freeway but not enough to not let one sleep. Staff was very friendly and made the check in and checkout process very easy. I would definitely stay here again.

Front office staff friendly and helpful. Other hotel & lobby staff eager to assist with our needs. We received excellent service at the breakfast room. Rooms very clean, very modern. We had microwave & small refrigerator & complimentary coffee in our room. We enjoyed our stay.

Larry was great, was able to tell me where a great wine place was and even gave me a map to get there since I am not from the area. Continental breakfast service was great. The place is close to everything and a great price. Very clean also.

Hotel was overall nice. Was on first floor and had no problems. Only thing is that the location of hotel is not in what I would consider a great part of town. That being said no issues with anything in terms of location.

Great hotel staff, super helpful and supportive (i was visiting with wife and a toddler). They do provide a crib for a toddler to sleep in. Room was clean, very large, and relatively quiet considering hotel is literally next to the freeway. The area where hotel is located is a bit sketch, but as long as you lock your cars ( i was on motorcycle) the staff is watching parking lot and they have security / cameras 24/7. There is mcdonalds and in-n-out right next to hotel so late night snacking was covered there. Since we had pretty action packed schedule, it was good to have 101 close to us and its just a 20 -30 minute ride to Cannery Row
