The rooms at this hotel are functional, nothing more. The decor seems old and the colors are dark. There was one picture in our room. No suitcase stands and a closet with a curtain over it. We lived in the area for 20 years so we know that it has not been here that long. The halls smell musty as if the carpets were cleaned but not allowed to dry properly.
The room itself is clean and the bed is comfortable. there is one small easy chair and two desk chairs. Other than that you sit on the beed. The TV has limited access.The kitchen appliances suit their intended purpose.The staff is cheerful but unhelpful. Asking for promised services will get you a friendly denial. It is close to many good restaurants and shopping centers.
On the first two nights we were there we returned from dinner to find the police present.
This place seems to miss the point. Most people that stay there are there for multiple days. The rooms should be cheerful not dreary and represent a welcome home base. They do not. We come to SoCal about once a month for 3-5 days and we want someplace that is inviting.
I can not recommend this place even at the reduced rate.
