Our room was terribly dirty and in disrepair. Cigarette burns on the quilts. I paid way too much money for filth. No breakfast available. Pet friendly, yet there was no place to take pets outside for potty breaks. Worst place ive ever stayed in. Very didappointed and disgusted.

Nothing to like. The absolute worst place I have ever stayed. The picture on the site and what the room actually was, did not match up

They need to post updated pictures. The establishment is nothing like the pictures they posted. The rooms smelled like mold. The bedding had cigarette burns in them. The carpets were filthy and you could not go barefoot.The parking lot was filled with crackheads and homeless people. We were worried about our car during the night. We witnessed a police officer making an arrest in the parking lot. I will never stay there again!

This holel was selected through Travelocity for travel to an event. When checking in we found the location to be very dilapidated and run down in the vestibule for checking in. Once we had paid for the two nights the manager asked another person, possibly a son, if the room was clean and available to check in. He was told yes. When we opened the door we found it to be very dirty and the room looked like a flop house. Next when getting into the shower there was one extremely small and thin piece of soap and the hot water took several minutes to get warm enough to get in. The floor was so dirty in the show when you got out of the shower and stepped on a towel it was dark from the dirt. Tried using shower shoes and they were dirty. There was remaining poop on the sidewall of the toilet. In bed we could hear the manager talking from the next room. He was not talking loud and if I understood the language could repeat it verbatim. This went on for 30 minutes while we were trying to get to sleep for an early event the next day. This place was very dirty and I asked for another towel and he said he would get one when asking him at the front desk. I asked if we could checkout early the next morning and he said yes but would not give a refund for the second night. Checked out early that morning and went to another hotel at our expense. No one should ever have to experience this terrible hotel. I have traveled on business extensively and have never found one so disgusting!

very noisey

Pros: management was very friendly
Cons: parking slots very tight, had to push my mirrors in to get out of my space
Location: maybe 40 feet from freeway #5, right on coast highway. close to ocean
the hotel is very close to the #5 freeway, so I couldn't have any windows open and even with them closed was still very noisey. room looked old with some renovations in the bathroom. parting lot slots are tiny

Affordable price and convenient location.

Decent room for the price. Firm mattress, HD TV, clean bathroom and shower. No frills and breakfast was pretty weak. Good value but people need to realize this isn't a Hilton. It is a discount hotel that offers a safe, clean and inexpensive place to stay.
