Don't use the elevator. Rooms here weren't bad. My biggest concern was with the staff than anything else. I felt like it's a cheap motel when I first walked in and even debated on looking for something else. I gave it a try and because the rooms weren't all that bad I decided to stay. They did have one of better breakfasts than some places.

"Room not as promised"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 20, 2014

My husband called the hotel to confirm that they had a 1 bedroom suite and not a studio suite. We were reassured that the suite is a 1 bedroom and arrived to find it was not. There was no door between the rooms. It was a studio suite which we had told them when booking we did not want. Negatives of this hotel The hotel is very old and appears out dated. The elevator is very slow and outdated. The cleaning staffs were rude and would not respond back when you asked them a question. The few positives after not being delivered what was promised. Front desk was friendly. The bed was comfortable and the best part of staying here was the breakfast. There was a wonderful woman in the breakfast room I believe her name was Alejandra who was super helpful and friendly. She and the breakfast were easily the best part of staying at this hotel.

The hotel exterior was nice. The lobby furniture was in poor condition, as was the weight machine in the exercise room. The maintenance in the rooms certainly left a bit to be desired. However, the beds are very comfortable and the breakfast staff was very friendly and courteous. Overall, I would say the experience was average.

Rooms are dated and need an update. Beds are comfortable and AC works well. Customer service was okay. Could have been better. Breakfast was awesome. Parking seemed a little short and neighborhood was a little dirty.

I was very disappointed in the housekeeping staff. Communication a big problem. We stayed for a week, and service I would not even rate a 1 out of 5 for the housekeeping services provided. And the little that was provided had to be asked, even getting trashed emptied. The front desk staff very helpful and informative. I would not recommend to friends or family, nor would I stay again if services remain as is.
