We stayed here for an overnight in the city this past weekend and it was an absolute joy. The front desk staff were great and made sure that we knew where we were going. There was free parking with a security guard which made us feel very safe. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which came in very handy... More

The staff were very friendly. Cons: The "bayside gives you some views of the water, but it mostly has an industrial feel on that side. The bayside also is really... More

If you are looking for a place to stay, sleep, and take a shower, this is your place. I believe the nightly rate is too high for what you get. The tv is the only modern aspect of the room. The decor is outdated and needs an upgrade. There is a gap under the door you could probably slide a... More

We were two guys attending a conference in the Hotel and everything was as good as it could be. Nice room, clean, quite, comfortable. The staff is very good, particularly David, who went the extra yards to help me with a telephone problem that was not even a hotel problem, it was my cell phone. He took his valuable time... More

Hotel was a little old, could have you too little upkeep. The pool was really nice. The hot tub was nice. The rooms were clean. The staff was really nice. We would definitely go here again. It is in a nice section of town with lots of things to do

We booked our Hotel online for our honeymoon. When we got there the front desk was fantastic, very attentive and professional. When we got to our room we noticed that the swing lock was broken in half. While we were down to dinner the maintenance staff had it fixed in minutes.. pretty impressive.

This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the freeway and great views from the upper floors. Unfortunately staying on the freeway side of the hotel can be noisy. My family had two rooms, one on each side of the hotel. Everyone reported a great night's sleep. The property needs renovations but you can't complain too much... More
