close to the beach
everything it's a dump
Everything. The breakfast was slightest, the bathroom was dirty and broken, the smoke detector went in alarm continuously! The worst holiday in my life!
Swim in pool all night
cleanliness in spa
Locatio nice employees
No towels. Had already disrobed, they told me to go downstairs and get. Them
ice machine broken couldn't use bathtub-no stopper shower rod falling down radio/clock buzzing noise carpet dirty over priced for the condition of hotel
Needs new carpet
Room was clean Air conditioner work Staff helpful Price was reasonable
Wi fi was poor Not enough breakfast
I was there for two days and the room was not made up after the first night. The breakfast rolls were dry and limited breakfast selection. The lights were on a motion sensor and with some movement the lights would come on.
We had an initial problem with our booking, and the staff, specifically Bonnie, went out of her way to help us and make us feel comfortable.
No window ventilation in the junior suites. Stuffy.
I liked the price$89
The room smelled old and musty. The jacuzzi was filthy and green, with trash in it and all around it. The property was poorly kept. Trash cans over flowing, mattresses out visible by trash cans, trash all over the corridors. The breakfast room was dirty and not stocked very well at all , no yogurt or fruit. Cold ceral, and stale muffins.
Had to fight for extra towels, the pool was yellow, breakfast very limited, the bed looked dirty, overall not good
Uncomfortable bed, horrible pillows, staff took forever, was slow and not very nice. Small accommodations. The bathroom door scraped the sink that was outside in the room. Not worth the $.
Bathroom was clean and the bed was pretty comfortable. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful.
Drapes were rotten and barely hanging on the rod. TV was so old, still a big fat tube style and all the stations were blurry. Furniture was also very old and barely fit in the room so it was very claustrophobic. Door jam broken so room could easily be burglarized. Microwave cord did not reach the plug so it was unusable. Pool was so tiny no chairs could be around it. Automatic lights in the bedroom came on at night every time someone rolled over so then you had to get up to turn it off and there was no way to keep it off. So not much sleep occurred. I have stayed in $100 a night hotels before and have never experienced such a poor place. It should not be more then $50 a night and that might even be too much.
That is the only thing I can say
Quiet, clean comfortable
Wi-fi a joke. no reception
Warning signs throughout parking lot for vehicle break ins. Dead bolt was broken on door and did not feel safe with young children. Broken shower knob, could not adjust water temperature. breakfast area was small (4 tables) and overcrowded and sign said can't take food back to room. Freeway road noise a problem.
Worth 60 Paid 160
Poor rooms for 160 per night
dirty, noise from the freeway and from the cars that were in the parking lot. pool very small. no help getting my luggage to my room.
Everything was horrible!!!
No wifi not even to log in. Dirty bulding and dirty breakfast room and really rude staff.
Old hotel. Dirty room, sheets, blanket and pillow with stains. Smelly carpet. Parking full of trash. Shower literally falling down. Lights flashing on and off in the room all the time. Not worth even USD50,00.
Considering it was the start of Comic Con weekend, they still had an available room.
The price was over double their regular rates. The staff wasnt able to provide accommodations regarding request for early check in and fluctuated on what the the specific check-in (posted 2pm, stated 3pm), check-out times (posted 11), late check out (stated guest could extend till noon, when we requested was told 11:30) were.
The wifi doesnt work anytime! Unfriendly stuff, to expensiv for this minimal offer! Dont stay there!!
Everything Rooms are dingy, and look like they have not been updated since 1975. Very dirty, delapidated facilities. Small univiting pool. Staff was rude and irritable upon check-in and did not explain where the breakfast was, offer any hospitality, or any interaction etc. $39.99 Riom cost $200!! I wouldn't eat anything out if their kitchen!
I liked the location and the staff was nice.
The parking lot was horrible. The accommodations were okay. I was not impressed with breakfast. The day we checked out there were other guests screaming at each other and blocking the stairway as we tried to l
