It was a nice stay. Things I would love to address is the room service is not available every day, particularly focusing on COVID one would think it would be desinfectante much frequently. We stayed on the 3rd floor, someone had dropped strawberries on the floor, the second day we were there and 2 days later when we checked out, the strawberries were still on the carpet in the hallway. Also, coffee is only per request, so positing there a keurig in the room does nothing without making sure you ask ahead of time. The elevator floor was very dirty. However, every staff member was very nice, professional and assisted when needed. The price is unbeatable! I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Not close to the elevator! Their utility room is next to it, extremely noisy.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We appreciate your comments and will make sure to pass them along to the staff. We are not cleaning rooms every day unless specifically asked for, for the safety of our staff and guests. The less amount of time we are in your room the better. It is part of a pledge we took with our county. And we are sorry to hear that the coffee situation was not explained to you. We have removed most items from rooms to help cut down on germs. We do appreciate that you chose to stay with us for your birthday and we wish you a very happy birthday!

The place was okay, staff friendly, but no desk in room. No place to work. Room shoddy. Tub was stained and beat up. Shuttle was good. Bed comfortable. They didn't honor my request for a room refrigerator, and didn't have any available. Someone was smoking pot in another room on my last night. I should have complained.

Hotel Focus worked out perfectly for me. The access from the parking lot to my room was convenient by stairs and by elevator. The front desk people were efficient and helpful. The breakfasts were fine --- hard-boiled eggs, bagels, waffles, juices, and coffee. My room was comfortable and functional. I liked the operable window. The hardwood floor was fine. The padded sitting chair with small swivel writing table was comfortable and worked fine for writing and for my laptop. All around this was a good comfortable hotel at a very good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the non-freeway side for less freeway noise when you open the operable window...
