This property is a fairly typical Residence Inn that's been updated. They've done a nice job on the grounds as they are very well maintained. The service at the front desk was very good and the breakfast was good as well. It's conveniently located to get to many places in the area. We had a good stay and would recommend...

I have stayed here a number of times and have always been very happy. I have booked rooms for my family members, and they always enjoy their stay. Celebrated a birthday gathering at the pool side (notified management ahead of time that i was going to have more than 50+ people, and they were more than accommodating). This hotel is...

Clean, well stocked kitchen. Great comfortable bed, sofa bed not so much. Breakfast is a normal average quality hotel food. Housekeeping was above average. Left out a few valuables I never should have, had no problems. Good people.

A friend gave us a free night at the hotel so I cannot comment on value. The hotel is conveniently but not centrally located nor is it near the beach. The pool is very nice, the rooms are large and clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom has a separate sink and toilet/shower-tub. The self-serve complimentary breakfast was okay.

The exterior is nothing fancy and looks pretty old, but the interior has gone through a massive upgrade. I thought it was modern, clean, and very comfortable! What else I liked: -Like all Residence Inns, they have a full breakfast buffet with REAL EGGS. I was totally prepared for powdered eggs given that this is a hotel, but NOPE -...

This will be the fourth time we have stayed here. Location to our family is excellent (and why we kept coming back). This ended with this trip. Two of the three previous times we stayed, we noticed the "mildew-y" smell and said something to the front desk. There is really nothing they can do, but we wanted to point it...

We stayed here before meeting the ferry for Catalina island. Our room had everything we needed. Linens were crisp and clean. The room was very nicely laid out and very clean. They allowed us to park our car there while we were at Catalina island with no extra charge. When we arrived back to the hotel to pickup our car...

Having just spent a week at this hotel I can honestly state that it's comfortable enough and the excellent staff pushes my rating up a point for their hospitality. I wouldn't call it tired but it's not new. The grounds are well maintained and the rooms clean enough. The overall Inn layout is the problem to me as you can...

I have stayed at other Residence Inns and this one does not quite meet the quality threshold. Bed linens were old and had cotton pill bugs like the sheets were dirty and old. They were promptly changed but not something one wants to deal with after a long day.
