    Guest rating

    Rooms are quite nice and very comfy.

    The breakfast wasn't very big or that good.

    Very good

    The hotel is located near a Trader Joes. This is very convenient. The room is clean and spacious.

    The hotel is near a highway and is noisy. Needs sound-proof windows. The management is not always friendly.

    Front desk attendant/manager was not friendly. He was put out by my request for a copy of the final bill in the morning. The continental breakfast was inadequate and didn't start until 7am, which is too late for business travelers. The "very beautiful room" which I was given had multiple windows that were broken and would not shut completely.

    Very good

    the price the best price I could find for that area room was clean the entire facility was neat the room could use a little tlc

    the tv control was confusing to operate and the room air conditioner controls were also difficult to set

    Superb

    The room and lobby were clean. The price was better than other hotels in the area. The amenities included free wifi, a microwave, a refrigerator, a hair dryer, an iron and board, a safe, great t.v. and remote with a guide to local programming (+ HBO), continental breakfast, and parking next to the room. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    Other patrons hung outside of the rooms smoking and lingering. The hotel is a "strip" type hotel on a main street (El Camino Real) with no grounds except a parking lot, but a designated smoking and "hang out" area would have created a better sense of security.
