We read previous reviews and honestly were worried. "Seedy area" did not bode well, but the management was so responsive, we went ahead and booked a two night stay for a wedding at the VERY near by Mission Inn. Our room was quite large with a sofa, refrigerator and microwave, along with the King Bed. Housekeeping is impeccable. They do a good job here. Calls to make requests were answered using our names and taking care of us immediately. The hotel is on a main street but we heard no noise. We were literally less than a block from Mission Inn and were assured by our shuttle driver over to the wedding that the walk back to our hotel was safe and easy and it was! This half block is a nice little boutique shopping area, antiques shops, a breakfast venue, a great hair salon (Manhattans-Ariana was super) and a Farmers Market on Saturday morning. In the evening our walk back was pleasant and easy - less than 3 minutes, literally. Honestly, we never felt anything was "seedy". The Starbucks a quick block away, next to the CVS does have homeless people in the parking lot. They were slow and gave you a better look at the people coming and going -- this might have been what put off other reviewers. Just don't go there and you don't have to see anything that might make you uncomfortable. Hotel has a coffee service, serving Starbucks. Half a block toward Mission Inn has a great breakfast place. This is a good value and clean hotel. Staff work hard to make your stay enjoyable. Kudos to all of them.
