I like their daily house keeping room is clean and tidy

Not clean enough. Microwave dirty when i got there things wernt probably ready

The staff was excellent. But there were too many little things that got in the way, and I shouldn't have to deal with. The key didn't work, and got stuck in the door. The bathroom was DIRTY. Mold in the shower, something was leaking on the bathroom floor, and made it very slippery. I will not go back.

Rooms are big and cozy.. Located around alot of places

I personally like the fact that it hasnt been renovated. Homey feel to it. Been staying here off and on for many years. Many good times and memories here. Staff is always very nice and super accomidating. Room and bathroom is always very clean.

Great location with food available near by from taco wagons, restaurants and grocery stores in easy walking distance. The room was spacious, Clean and quiet. The place just needs some upgrades, paint, new locks on the doors, you get an old fashion key on a string, heating is from a space heater plugged into the wall, cooling from a fan, while being low tech it did the job. Considering the rate is half of that at the big near by chains all the above is completely acceptable. I would stay at the Hillsdale Inn again. One more point. If your taxi or Uber driver isn’t familiar with driving to the Hillsdale Inn and Siri is giving directions, the driver should not turn left on to the freeway, but continue thru the intersection then take the immediate left into the Hillsdale. Doing this will save you the couple miles of back tracking to get to the lobby that we had to do with the meter running.

The outside looks really bad but once you get in to the room its clean and comfortable.

In my years of vacations taken with tens of hotels, this is the first hotel room I saw without an a/c. They just kept a blower inside the room; we had two night stay, where we could not even sleep properly. The outside climate is far better than inside. They say they have breakfast but they just keep a few boxes of cakes which I don't even consider as breakfast. The only good thing is that property owner responds in a timely manner on Orbitz communicator. It's definitely not worth for the price we paid and I'm not going back to this hotel.

Recommeneded, located nearby places of interest for all

I know I had to check out at 11:00. Don’t appreciate the cleaning maid to knock at my door at 10:00. And receive a call to leave at 11:00. I already knew that, and was ready to head out anyways.

It’s closed nobody to open the door ... it’s closed ,. My flight was delayed

This place is pretty run down. For people in the trades who have to work down here, its a somewhat cheap and convenient place to stay. Close to the freeway. For the most part, the customer service is decent though I feel there have been times when my significant other and I have stayed here that we've been somewhat bullied by management. Check out is at 11am and I had house keeping banging on my door at 8am. That is rude and unacceptable. Especially since we were still sleeping. Only a small portion of the rooms have do not disturb signs. We have had good experiences here in the past but it's starting to go down hill fast. The staff live onsite, they treat the place like it's an apartment complex or their own personal playground. I think serious renovations need to be done to justify this place charging over $100 a night for these rooms.
