We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of a Route 66 road trip. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful. We arrived at 11am and were advised that our room was ready and we were therefore able to check in early. We were given a number of leaflets and advised on which tours were available and it was also easy to book through the hotel. We did a starlight tour which collected from and dropped of at the hotel.
The breakfast was free and it was one of the better ones that we had during our trip. There was a large selection of food and enough seating. However, breakfast was not served until 7 am. On our second day we had to be at the airport for this time, so we were not able to stay for breakfast which was dissapointing. The other hotels that we had stayed in started serving breakfast at 6 am which would have suited us much better.
We were advised by a member of staff to get the bus to the pier and told of the nearest bus stop. However, we stood at this bus stop for about 45 minutes one evening and two buses drove past us. When we went back to the hotel to pick up our car we were told that this bus stop wasn't actually a stop and that we should have gone to a different one. I would advise checking with the staff which bus stops are working stops. We did get the bus one day and it cost a dollar to get to the Pier. I would recommend this if you ascertain which stops the buses actually use...
Our main complaint about this hotel was the noise of the air conditioning unit. We had stayed in a number of different hotels throughout our trip however this was the noisiest of them all. We were both woken up on occassion by the unit going on and off. As it was July we were not able to sleep without the air conditioning on, so had to put up with disrupted sleep.
