Recently I needed a close place to house my Son and Grandson who were visiting for Disneyland. We were looking for an economy spot for two nights so he could be close to my house before embarking on his trip.
Claremont Lodge is easy access to the freeway and also to several good places to get a meal, and get some rest. The Hotel is just off the freeway-but- is just far enough not to hear the noisy traffic. There is a restaurant just across the street--but I really recommend the "NORM's" there across the way. This Norm's is always busy, but we have always had really good service, and good delicious entrees at a reasonable price.
The cost of the Claremont Lodge is about $60-$80 and there is a small pool if you want to take a swim. I was impressed because I had gone to talk to the manager the day before my Son arrived and wanted to check out the rooms. He said that he had had a complaint that the carpet was not new enough. He went on to explain that they were in the process of remodeling, and since the carpets are a bit aged, that may have been why a guest had complained. He showed me our room, and I told him it was fine. He sent a carpet cleaner over to the room anyway and had the carpets freshly cleaned just for us!!! How is that for trying to make your stay the BEST! The hotel will be remodeled sometime over this year to next year, but I found it suitable for an economy type stay. The room and bathroom was very clean, and the bed slept REALLY comfortable..there is a pillow top on it and I tried it out and wanted to stay myself!
I dont know if the reviews posted on Trip Advisor before mine were a different staff, but I found both the night clerk and the day clerk to be friendly. The night clerk told me they had a bad expeience with a former employee drawing complaints but had fired that employee.
This is not a Hotel for vacation luxury. This is an economy stay with convenience. I did not find any of the issues reported by others here on this site. I dont know why My family would have a better experience, but we did. I think travelors should ask to check the rooms of any hotel before they settle in. If you are looking for a more tasteful stay, then you need to expect $100 and above for the room price. For this price, in this area, the Claremont Lodge is suitable.
I looked at several close properties, and this one was deemed the Best in this price range. I also was not worried at all and after we left, there was no sign of insects or other hazards to staying there. I would put guests up there again if I needed them in this area, and economy was needed.
