The Amanzi has been renovating and improving the appearance of the hotel lobby, rooms and exterior for about 3 years. Everytime we visit they have completed another project. We look forward to sitting in their new breakfast room.

We spent one night at this hotel, but probably had less then an hour sleep because of the noise from hwy 101. It is much closer to the freeway than to the beach. We asked for a quiet room, but going one floor up would have cost $75 more. The next day, we asked for a one hour late move out, so we could rest a little bit longer because of the bad night, but the staff denied our request despite me being 5 months pregnant. Over the many years of travel, we never had such a simple request denied. The so-called breakfast was given to us after staying in line while the staff member continuously asked for tips for a bag of pre packaged food. The inside of the hotel was under construction, and boarded up with plywood. We had traveled half the world over the past 30 years, but we never found such a bad value for the price.

We are sorry you were unhappy with your stay around June. Our hotel has been undergoing renovations and was noted during your reservation process. As such, we do not have space to provide a breakfast buffet. Also, due to higher occupancy, we cannot always accommodate special requests. Our team apologizes for not providing a better stay. We will continue to work hard to make improvements.

Granted that our choice for this motel was a bit last minute, thus expected to pay a higher price, but what we recieve was a want-a-be motel cashing on the higher priced offerings in the area. Room, amedties, location, lack of adaquite parking DID NOT justify the room price for that night. Motel was old trying to look better, next to a freeway on ramp, (constant road noise), next to a ambulance business, (siren chirpping with each out call), what outdoor porch had lawn furniture on ratty green astroturf, not to bad mouth the astroturf company. Security was lacking, anyone could enter through the open sunken garage. Room was fine, clean, usable, but not for a longterm stay. Walls were thin as every grunt was heard from the very late night guest nsxt door expressed their desires. Don't blame guest, but at the price paid, i would expect better sound proofing. I know this was a late choice to stay, but the motel 8 or 6 would of been better. Would not be my choice again, no matter how despirate.
