“Nice hotel ... nice staff”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

This was a nice hotel ... the staff was nice.
There were few outlets ... but that was fine.
The lobby was very, very pleasant. The decor was nice and there was a nice ambiance.
The room had a nice fresh smell.
I would stay here again!

I reserved this hotel weeks in advanced. just an hour or two before we check-in around 5pm we received a phone call from the front desk asking if we are going to show up. Of course we were. When we do show up they told us they had no room for us. They said they were over booked and that it happens everyday. They sent us to a hotel around the corner and that they would pay for the other room. I assumed it would be comparable to the Holiday inn. Not even close. The room was disgusting. As we were leaving the room after about 3 minutes to check out of the hotel they had sent us too. To go drive around to find something else with 3 very tired young kids. The Holiday Inn had called the room to see how we liked. We told them we were leaving, they said we could go back to them, they had a room ready for us. WHAT! We went back to the Holiday Inn only because we were soo tired from traveling all day. Well, that was our horrible experience with them. If I were just to rate the room I would say it was just okay. A little outdated. Nice balconies for every room and the kids loved the pool.

However, We’re sorry you received poor customer service from our front desk especially on the availability confusion which was unacceptable. I assure you the feedback of our hotel will be reviewed so as not to happen again. We take the confidence our guests place in us very seriously and work diligently to rectify any unsatisfactory experiences. We hope you give us a chance in the future to show you how great our hotel is.

This is an ok motell but a bit outside of Camarillo centre. It is clean and have good sized rooms. The pool are good to have, the only bad thing is the highway not far away - a bit noise from it...The employees are helpful and nice.

Great location by the US 101. Clean room. Decent breakfast.The only challenge were the people in the room above us. They were noisy. It usually starts around 11 PM and goes on for about an our or so. I am not sure if they were running around, stomping their feel to the floor, but it was noisy.

The pool was small. Otherwise, the hotel was good. Staff members were friendly.

Room Tip: Make sure you're not on the bottom floor.

The only thing that was disappointing about our stay was that our non-smoking room had a bad smoke smell, as though the previous guest had been chain smoking.

The hotel had no spare rooms, so we were stuck with it, and they would not honour their satisfaction guarantee because we booked through an external website.

The wifi at our end of the building was pretty useless.

Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. The price was good, the staff friendly, and the facilities clean. The breakfast was also good for this type of accom.

Mixed results for us. We stay in HI Express hotels regularly and are almost always pretty happy with our stays. Price was good, location is very convenient, and place was clean and in good condition. Breakfast was great. Only two negatives were beds were way too firm (ie, hard) for our liking. Not comfy like most other HI Express beds we have experienced. Pool and hot tub were small but clean and warm. Pool towels were all used so before we got in I asked the front desk if they had more. She called someone and told us they would bring some out. We spent nearly an hour at pool area and no towels. Wouldn't have been as bad if we hadn't seen the maintenance guy and the housekeeper both hanging around inside. We are pretty laid back travelers but no one wants to be ignored. I am sure other guests didn't appreciate the trail of water my family left on our way back to our room. We visit this area often but will likely try a different place next time. Oh, and if you are in the area in summertime you must try some local strawberries from the vendors on the side of the road. Really, really good.
