Good value and quiet location. Friendly staff. We would stay here again.

Prompt service. Nice lobby with decent breakfast. Room pleasant and in good shape for a budget hotel.

A young gentleman at the front desk greeted me with a smile. His name starts with an M. He was polite and welcoming. My room was neat and clean. Very Satisfied Customer! Thank you.

Affordable & Clean. It was close to all the beaches & restaurants that we liked.

our room was clean and freshly remodeled, i do recommend this hotel, on the down side there was a faint smell of cigarette smoke in our room when we first checked in but to was not detectable a couple of hours later when we returned

Friendly staff. Nice and clean room. I will comeback for sure.

I stayed for one night in this hotel and it is a good experience overall . Not sure on other things.

The staff were very friendly and the bed was comfortable, there was pleanty of parking and the room was quiet.

Rooms are clean, hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.

Exactly as advertised. Right on the freeway. Very friendly staff and a better than expected breakfast.

This hotel should be an example for other hotels that for the price they can offer a clean room, firm bed, clean linens and a good value for the money. Their rating should be higher than a two star. I will use this hotel again if I am in the area.

Comfortable, clean, good value. The pool was clean, the Jacuzzi is in the right place, closed in which makes it more private and enjoyable

I'm from San Diego but have lived in the Midwest for the past 8 years, so I already knew about the area the hotel was in. I had selected the 'smoking' room by accident but was unable to switch to 'non-smoking' due to the rooms being booked. The hotel room smelt awful. Again, I'm a non-smoker, so it was very strong. So strong that I could smell it in our clothes when we left the hotel. Also, the air conditioner didn't work very well. We had turned the air on high to make sure it was cool when we returned that night. Got back that evening and housekeeping had come into the room and turned it down. It took all night to get the room at a decent temperature. They did have an iron and blow dryer. And the shower had good water pressure. The bed was pretty comfortable also. I'd go back but definitely try the 'non-smoking' room.

For the price, I haven't been more pleased with a place to stay. I want comfort, cleanliness and friendly staff. That's what I experienced. Breakfast was good. Didn't use it, but the pool was beautiful. I was greeted by Ana, who was very friendly and efficient. I will return.
