Have stayed here before and it was fine for the price. Stayed again for Christmas holiday and very disappointed! Owner/manager stands behind a very thick glass window at check-in and you can't hear him talk, all I heard was room 102 as his slid the key under the security opening. He was not friendly at all and lacked customer service...

The rooms were very nice, modern and clean. The only con was there was an odor in the bathroom from the fan whenever you turned it on. The beds were comfortable. The location was great. If I remember, In-n-Out burger was really close. A great value.

Pros: - Rooms were surprisingly very clean. Everything seemed newly renovated, so the decor was very modern. - Wifi access was consistent and moderately fast for hotel wifi - Conveniently located by the freeways. Cons: - Front-desk staff weren't outwardly friendly as you would hope they should be. Since I didn't run into problems, I didn't have to deal with...

Rooms are excellent for the price, very clean and modern. The outside is very clean and the landscape area is manicured. Also really like the floors, not carpet to me makes the room much cleaner. I do agree with a previous review, the staff when you check in were a bit cold and they don't communicate too well, but I...
