Well priced hotel an uber away from gaslampReally enjoyed my 1 night stay at this hotel. The room was excellent for the price and I was checked in very quickly despite a short delay while the room was prepared. I was given free parking for the inconvenience which was a nice touch and greatly appreciated.

Very nice hotel. Close to shopping and freeway. The room was spacious and inviting. It had everything we. could want when first arriving. Very quiet and the bed was to die for!! Unfortunately I was sick during our stay, but was even comfortable there fighting pneumonia. Enjoyable and relaxing!!
