    Overall good experience. Polite staff, decent breakfast and close to several restaurants and easy freeway access. Just be careful coming in and out of the driveway. It is a sharp entry and difficult to exit safely due to high traffic and being on a bend. The breakfast is decent. Usually eggs of some kind (omelette or scrambled and hard boiled), sausage patty, and sometimes bacon. Biscuits and gravy, a cinnamon buns, toast/English muffins, fruit, instant pancake maker (which is pretty cool to watch), oatmeal, yogurt, and cereal. They also have coffee and tea all day. The decor is simple and more modern. Nothing super fancy. Just a few things to consider. They have thin walls and windows, so when there were people talking it walking or laughing wwe could definitely hear them and it was hard to sleep. Fortunately this didn't happen every night. When you exit from the stairs or side of the building, there is no card key in entry. You must go back to the lobby, which is fine for security I guess, but a bit of a hassle if you parked near that door and instead have to circle around the front. Over all not a bad stay especially if you want somewhere clean and safe for a reasonable price.

    The front desk team was warm and friendly. Mario made us banana bread for an apology when our room was overlooked by the cleaning crew. Another lady baked cookies for the guests in the evening. The pancake machine is a nice alternate to the traditional waffle maker. We loved the mattress in our room 229. The sink area separate from the toilet and shower area is a huge bonus. The furniture in the breakfast area should be wiped down each night. The legs on the chairs and table looked pretty dirty with food splashed on them.

    This property was conveniently located near a freeway, lots of restaurants near by. What I disliked was the tiny bathroom and the walls were really thin. I could here people yelling and banging on the door at others at 6am to get up.
