We really enjoyed out stay. room was cute, beds were comfy, and room was clean. The lower priced room face the freeway, so it was noisy. Staff was nice and coffee was great. I'd stay there again.

There was used plastic silverware in my room and no shampoo or conditioner in the dispensers. Also, the room smelled.

It was a cute, no frills hotel. Rooms were small, bathroom was tiny for our family of 4, and really needed some towel hooks or bars. We did not get any housekeeping services at all in our 4 days, even though we requested it, so that was disappointing. However it was clean when we checked in, the boys had fun in the pool. The front desk and the cafe has great customer service and we enjoyed being able to order coffee and snacks. The beds were comfortable and it was convenient right off the freeway. Overall, we were happy and enjoyed our stay.

Had a nice stay, the mattress was a bit uneven and probably needs to be replaced. Other than that, we had a good stay.
