So I picked it off the internet, read some reviews and hoped for the best...the price was right. I was not disappointed. I would stay again.
My bed was immaculate and comfortable with nice linens and pillows. The housekeeping staff does a good job on the rooms. The full breakfast is a nice touch in a spacious, comfortable breakfast room. The hotel lobby/entrace makes a good impression with bright bougainvillea plants, and fountains. There is a pleasant bright blue color theme at this hotel. Bathroom fixtures are trendy. Cool faucet!. These little touches are a nice change from the McDecor of chain hotels. Overall, the staff was efficient, and responsive. The rooms very clean and comfortable and a much better than average value for the weekend rate ($59!!). Other pluses; hotel is within walking distance of shops and downtown. Mt. View. modern, bright, comfortable common area with tv and computers. In room wireless connection..reliable and quick. The hotel appears to be well managed.
Cons: Freeway noise(with open windows), airconditioners and the plumbing in your neighbors' rooms, could be distracting or a problem. Rooms with doors that open onto the common patio area that runs along one side of the building tend to be a bit noisier. The first room they showed me had a stale smoke odor, although all rooms should be non-smoking. Outside on the patio, there was a huge ashtray filled with cigarettes! Which probably wafts into the rooms ( the staff promptly changed my room). The bathroom lighting is a bit dim, the result of using trendy halogen track lighting. Bathroom door is a tight swing, nearly touches toilet. (You can tell this was once an old motel kind of place that has been updated). The furniture/walls had a few dings and scuffs, nothing major.
