“Would Never stay there again.”
Reviewed 15 September 2005

We booked a non-smoking room that was a loft (large bed upstairs and fold-out bed in separate area) and were scheduled for a red-eye arrival. When we arrived, we were given a studio room (the larger bed and the fold-out were in the same room) and they tried to charge us the price for the loft room. Not only did they give us a smaller room, but they tried to charge us for the larger room! To add insult to injury, the place smelled like an ashtray. Obviously, they gave us a smoking room. All of our luggage and clothing reeked of smoke. I called the front desk to complain that they had not only given us the incorrect size room but that it was a smoking room too. The lady at the front desk was adamant that it was non-smoking. I was furious since the room reeked of smoke and there was a large ASHTRAY on the coffee table. After we complained to the manager they were willing to change the room rate to what the studio room costs (which is what they should do since that's where they put us), but I will wait until we get our credit card statement to see if they really honor that.

Rooms are clean and spacious, with kitchen well-equipped enough to prepare simple meals. Location is excellent: convenient to the 5 and 405 freeways, as well as the Spectrum Entertainment Center. Front desk staff consistently courteous and helpful. Great selection and quality at buffet breakfast. Clean, heated pool. Would love to stay here again!

The room was nice, fully equipped with everything you would need for a few days' stay. The service was excellent and the staff helpful. They even offer to do the grocery shopping for free if they are provided a list. I would give this Residence Inn a thumbs up.
