The rooms are clean and spacious. It was easy to find our room and easy to enter. The restaurant was good and we didn't have to go offsite after a long trip to get there.

Booked a pool view room with a king sized bed. Was traveling with my registered service dog that needs to wake me from night terrors due to PTSD. I was given a room with two queens right next to the freeway. Called and they said it’s the only pet room they had… he’s a legit service dog so it really doesn’t matter which room we are in. They ended up giving me the king room but the front desk staff was extremely rude about it. I offered to provide proper documentation to them and were still snotty about changing my room. Room was still next to the freeway which was extremely noisy and kept my toddler awake all night. Don’t know what happened here, our first stay at this hotel was great, this one, not so much. We will definitely be taking our business elsewhere next time we travel through!

What I liked the most of my stay was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Even when they were short-staffed, they explained well and let me know ahead so I can plan accordingly. A pleasant surprise was shuttle service to tourist destinations. Tony who drove the van was courteous and accommodating. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well. However, the facilities are aged. We had issue with drainage when taking showers. It was disappointing. I also found scrap in the bathtub so it showed it wasn't well cleaned.
