The room was ok, nothing great. I don't think it was real clean. Our room had a strange smell and I ended up getting an air freshener. All rooms were outside entrance which we don't typically like staying at. They did have on site laundry, bring your own soap and fabric softener as its expensive. Laundry is $2 each doe...

Horrible hotel not for the business traveler. Worthless internet access (I'm using my phone as a hot spot in my room). Furniture in my room is damaged in multiple places and it looks like a dog has been chewing on the side of the coffee table. Seems more for people and families in long term distressed situations.

Just a quick list: apathetic front desk staff Shower curtain was rotten and smelled like an armpit No non plastic cups in the "kitchen" No measuring utensils of any kind in the "kitchen" "Breakfast" was an oatmeal packet or an orange. No gym. A place where hospitality has been completely abandoned.

We were very disappointed in the hotel, especially for the cost. There were no dishes. The place seemed run down. The sheets were very old and scratchy. The breakfast was very meager, bars and an apple, with no decaf coffee.

Do not waste your money here. I prepaid $1886.27 for 13 nights. When I arrived the place was terrible. There was only one room - bedroom with kitchen, and a separate bathroom. The bed was uncomfortable, sheets uncomfortable, and the mattress cover didn't cover the whole bed. Very little space. Maid service only once a week. I had to move...

When all the Silicon Valley hotels were full, I ended up here for a couple of nights at the last minute, still paying $200/nt+ ... The room felt dingy and old... WiFi was completely garbage and unusable. Overall, I felt like I was staying in a $39 roadside motel. The room was dusty and dirty.. I was just so relieved...

Friendly and helpful staff. They were so helpful that I feel bad I can't write much else good about the hotel. The room furniture, kitchen attachments, bathroom things show a lot of wear and tear and need a major renovation. The room was small with no work desk. The iron pad had some stains on those and they took some...

I travel a lot to this area on business. I found this to be one of the hotels I liked the least. I typically stay a couple of weeks at a time and I found this hotel a little lacking. The price was pretty reasonable, but the service was unacceptable. The room was clean and smelled Ok. The bed was...

I got a job nearby and for one year and 3 months this hotel was my home. If you are here to stay, but not for years, then this is more convenient than to rent an apartment, especially since I was single away from home. (My husband works in San Diego). You don't have to buy furniture and other things...
