Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Nothing for me to like about. The AC wasn’t working well. Way too hot at night. The breakfast should be changed. The same meals every day. I did not feel safe if I come back to the hotel at night. The people use drugs walking around outside building. The packing lot is smells terrible from the pee . I’m not really happy. I want to checking out for the second day. The front desk told me . I already paid , they afraid won’t refund the money for me. I’m a member ship of the holiday Express. I always booked them. If I go back to Santa Ana. I wouldn’t booked this hotel again.
