Upon arrival at this hotel I thought I was going to be extremely disappointed. From the initial glance at the main entrance it looks like they put a nice coat of paint on an old, 60's style motel. I was prepared for the worst. But once you round the first corner at the entrance and see the hotel in its entirety, you see that it does have charm and appears very well taken care of.
At check in our room was not ready, so we came back after 4pm and the front desk clerk was very personable and welcoming. From my initial judgment of the exterior, things were starting to look a bit better. I then noticed the posted, and seemingly very strict, No Party Policy, essentially saying, 'Act stupid and loud, we call the police and evict you immediately'. I was starting to like this hotel more and more by the minute. (I have stayed in the area during large race weekends at Laguna Seca, and things can get rowdy).
Once we arrived at our room I was extremely impressed. The room was decorated very nice, modern but very comfortable, had a gas fireplace, and was spotless. The bed was comfortable, with quality linens and pillows. Large wall mounted flat screen TV, microwave, and small refrigerator. Our night was very quiet, some road noise, but not bad enough to lose sleep over. Breakfast was decent, the bare essentials to fuel your day, and the staff was very welcoming. For an outstanding breakfast there are no shortages of restaurants in the area that will accommodate you. All in all the stay was great and I will return to this hotel. Much cheaper than some options in the area, but you wouldnt know it by staying there.
