Overall first impression was very favorable. Everything was very clean. Received warm welcome at the desk. Colors of paint on walls inside and out reflected the "Thunderbird" theme. A refrigerator, microwave, and hair dryer were in the room and internet access was available.

Exactly what it says it is.

The staff was friendly. The room was standard but in good shape, clean and comfortable. It's between downtown and UCR and, for some, might feel a little isolated, but a short walk and shorter drive to all eating spots. They have a small pool and hot tub, but the State has required them to put a handicap ramp into both, (I am so glad I don't live there and/or have a small business there!) so they are currently unavailable for that reason only. Too bad, but not a "ding" to the hotel's rating. I'd definitely stay there again.
