Pretty good stay. Was happy with the size of room. Cleanliness of the room was done well by the staff, however there were signs that bugs were present in the facility. Customer service was okay. May stay at this hotel again

"It would be nice if this particular location install kitchens considering the size of the rooms and the fact that it is considered to be a residential hotel."
"Remodeling the suites would be great "
"upstairs has showers, downstairs has bathtubs"
"The hotel is situated close to a very busy freeway,so it is advisable to keep the windows closed at night in order to get a good night's sleep."
"Cannot say we have ever had a bad room there...."
US$72 - US$126 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
