“OK for overnight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

OK for a quick overnight stay! Rooms were reasonably clean, it was a quiet location, with easy parking. The staff is friendly. We had a 2-queen, non-smoking room, everything fine. Would stay here again.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We found the room very clean, the bed comfortable and the staff very helpful. The continental breakfast was less than marginal for us. We had a problem with staying in a non-smoking room and people standing outside the room smoking. At the bottom of the stairs they were smoking and the smoke went DIRECTLY up to our room. Possibly they could ask people to smoke in the parking lot? Also, the towels and washcloths were quite rough.

But, they supplied us with toothpaste that my husband neglected to pack.

Don't stay here, there were cockroaches and ants in the bathroom... Some bugs were living in our towels so we could't use them and we could hear our neighbours going "pee" or something... You have to turn off the fridge and a/c 'cause otherwise you won't find sleep (too loud) Worst experience ever - and we have been to asia before... It's just disgusting - and all this for 150 $ a night

Stayed here for a vacation to the eatern sierras. Clean room, beds were really comfortable, Conveniently located next to dennys and kfc. Also close to really good pizza restraunt called the upper crust. Only things that I can complain about is ants in the bathroom and the water would go from cold to extremely hot with touching the knob while taking a shower.

This is our stop on our way to Lake Tahoe and then on our way back home, so the hotel offers us everything we needed. Clean and comfortable, so no complaints. Everything was in walking distance.Will come back

We stayed here on June 6, when it was very warm. The air conditioner was blowing warm air. About 6 p.m., I called the front desk and within an hour, with minimum fuss, we had a new A/C unit!

Our dog was with us so we stayed in a pet room with a very convenient large grassy area. The room was odor free, clean, comfortable beds, etc.

The reason I didn't give it an excellent is the WIFI kept dropping me, even when I was on line. Frustrating to have to continually log in.

We didn't eat the breakfast buffet so can not comment on it.

We used this as a stop over whilst driving between LV and SF. It was fine, pretty clean, everything you need in a stop over. The air con is pretty much next to useless.
The staff are helpful enough.
The breakfast was pretty good as far as choice and it was all pretty decent quality. Plus free WIFI!
