Before you read this consider that I went here for part of my honeymoon with my wife, thinking it was a very nice hotel with Spanish style theming as is implied by the picture of the hotel online. To our disappointment this is not the case. The decor was Spanish themed, but aside from some nice fountains, there really wasn't anything special about it. Overall the architecture was looking run down and old. Perhaps they have improved it in the last year.
According to the web page for this hotel they had a restaurant on site. This is misleading. First the said restaurant was still under construction and not open when we were there. Second, when you hear "on site" you think it is in the hotel, this is not the case. The restaurant is located in the hotel's parking lot.
The hotel rooms attempted to make some kind of theme, I'm not sure what, with wicker furniture. They do have kitchenettes, one of their primary amenities. Kitchen features stove top, oven, and nice big fridge and freezer. The wicker bed, while very soft was surprisingly comfortable. We were there during that big heat wave in July 2006 and the A/C didn't work very well. Since we were on the ground floor we had a fountain in our patio (yes, looked like all rooms had patios or decks) but it was not working. A safety issue was the gas stove top. The layout of the kitchen puts the stove top directly across from the fridge with little space between. It was very easy to turn one of the gas knobs and not realize it when putting stuff into the fridge. Bathroom was small but the room had a large changing area next to the bathroom. Be careful if you have kids!
The hotel provides free wireless internet, a plus. The downside was that the connection was not very reliable, dropping frequently.
Since it was our honeymoon we stayed one night then canceled our reservation and went to Embassy Suites in Garden Grove. A phenomenal improvement.
If you can get a good price and its not a special occasion, then this is a decent place to stay. If you're on a honeymoon go somewhere better.
