This was my second stay here for work purposes. The rooms have been clean and I appreciate the bedding. The woman who was there in the evening when I checked in both times was very friendly and helpful. However, if you're someone like me who goes to bed about 10ish and you are a light sleeper, you can anticipate hearing some noise from the other rooms. Also, the first time I booked this hotel over the phone last minute (I called about 6:30pm and checked in around 8pm) I told them that I had a budget for work and the woman agreed to accommodate that budget without any issues whatsoever. However, the man who checked me out in the morning charged me almost $30 more than I was quoted over the phone, which I wouldn't have even realized had I not requested a receipt (he didn't offer one initially). Then he gave me attitude when I told him about the agreed upon price.

The staff was friendly and helpful, check in and check out were easy and quick, the water pressure in the shower was GREAT, it was much quieter than I thought it would be, and the curtains block out a LOT of light! It was everything I needed for a quick stay.

The room was huge with a very comfortable bed, a love-seat, wet bar and a bathroom separated from the bedroom by a door. Our pet hotel peeve is having the sink in the bedroom so neither of us can get up early to get dressed without waking the other. Because my husband needs the bedroom very cool at night for sleeping but the thermostat could not be turned lower due to CA regulations, the staff brought an extra fan (did I mention 2 ceiling fans?!) which helped tremendously. There was a full hot breakfast while we were expecting only a continental breakfast. Holiday Express and Suites will be our first choice the next time we book a hotel!
