Nice bed, but room needs repair”
Pool, breakfast, bed
My stay was marginal at best. The staff was very nice, and professional, but the room needed attention. While the room did appear trendy and new, the blinds were broken and didn't shut correctly, the mini-fridge was warm, and smelled like rotten food. The housecleaning left me a bottle of conditioner but no shampoo, and there was a dipping noise in the bathroom ceiling that kept me awake. It sounded like a pipe was dripping onto the drywall ceiling, although I didn't see any stains or sign of water.

budget indeed”
staff was attentive, rooms were semi modern
The room itself was clean and renovated but had a lingering smoke smell even though it was a non-smoking room. Sheets had cigarette burns and holes, again it was suppose to be non-smoking! Parking lot is small and hard to get in and out of. Very close to El Camino so you hear alot of road noise and people walking by. Very disappointed in the room especially the sheets and duvet with holes in it.

Expected better but ok.”
Large closet for the children to play in. Centrally located. That's it.
Small room, expected more but ok. Bathroom door would not latch. Footprint in bathtub. Ashtrays set outside several rooms, didn't smell very good. It was ok for 1 night.
