We stayed here for a night as a stopover en route to San Francisco. Its fit for purpose if you need to get your head down after a long drive, and you don't mind the noise from the road - and other guests, who appeared to be attending a door slamming convention. The welcome was luke warm, the breakfast and... More

OK, OK, not really, but that was a great add campaign. Here's the deal, not a truly excellent hotel, but but excellent is a relative term. The room was great, price reasonable. No issues with service or cleanliness and the shower head/water pressure was as good as it gets. Stayed here for my son's graduation from Santa Cruz and nothing... More

I came here with a friend for a business trip. The location of the property is near nothing of interest except industrial/businesses. The location from the airport is FAR and the shuttle cost me over $100 to get back for 1 person. The stay itself was good Clean room and decent sized for two people. The breakfast is subpar but...

Hotel has a good location, close to some good restaurants. Staff was help full at checkin. Room was very clean and large (had a corner room that was accessible). Exercise room is a joke.. treadmill and stairclimber in a space smaller than the hotel bathroom. Breakfast was your typical Eggs/Bacon/waffles.

This is not a fancy hotel. The entry doors are a bit of a turnoff but my high rating is for cleanliness. the hotels were kept clean and fresh and front desk staff was very pleasant. The breakfast is your average continental hotel type but a hot cup of coffee and fresh fruit is always nice.
