Pros & Cons. Location was good. Rooms had everything one could possibly need. Breakfast had good options. Amanda at the front desk was Super helpful with suggestions. Other older gentleman (Indian) behind front desk just looked at me as I waited for Amanda. He could have said hello or acknowledged me... Sink in room 123 is clogged. King size bed was Eastern King. Why wouldn’t you have a California King size bed in California? The length is what was needed. Also, the warehouse across the side street had pretty loud music and a shouting instructor in the evening. Maybe ask them to close their giant door during workout classes.

Nicely renovated rooms. The bathroom sink area (separate from the shower and toilet) is combined with Refrigerator, microwave and small table and chairs. My only real complaint is that the shower, while real nice, is tiny, about 3'x3'. I'd have liked to see a smaller "kitchen" and larger shower.

Very clean property and much better AC than s lot of the older hotels. Nice staff. Better pillows needed instead of the very small pillows would be especially on s king size bed. They are about the size of a small throw pillow rather than a bed pillow. Better toiletries needed as well. The soap is the most drying soap I’ve ever used. No conditioner in our room so I don’t know if that is standard or housekeeping forgot to leave some.
