You can tell this hotel used to be amazing and upscale. I imagine back in the day it was busy and very popular. But over time it has become run down. They have tried to update things, but they need more than updating. They need to remodel. The ceiling and windows in the atrium and pool are haven’t been kept up they way they should to prevent discoloration and film in windows. The cement in the pool area needs to be refinished. The tree in the pool are had a lot of fallen leaves that hadn’t been cleaned up.
The “arcade” area had one game that was out of order. There was a pool table out of order. The different decorative plant areas seemed to have been put back together after breaking or falling apart with whatever they had instead of just redoing it. The floor where the tables and pool table are are falling apart.
The room we had was supposed to be non-smoking, but you can tell it used to be a smoking room. It reminded me of the smell of motel 6 in the 1980s...when they allowed smoking but would try to cover it up with air freshener. My throat hurt, my nose got stuffy and my eyes burned. This is another sign that they have only updated and not replaced.
You could hear every noise. Every car that drove by on Sisk. The loud ones randomly woke me up. People walking by, talking in normal voices, could be heard clearly. We had a hard time sleeping. We came for a surgery and have to drive an hour and a half back home today. So the lack of sleep is pretty inconvenient. The beds and pillows were comfortable at least.
The security lock on the door was broken and only had one screw, as if it had been kicked in before.
There was no hot water for a shower. Only lukewarm.
The continental breakfast was only cereal and some prepackaged muffins and bagels and bread and a toaster.
The stuff was there to have the hot stuff, but it was covered. This may be because of the corona virus, but I don’t believe the cost reflected the lack of actual continental breakfast.
I really wish this had been kept up better. The style really didn’t need updating. I think the older look would be part of the charm. It really could be a neat hotel. It doesn’t really need a remodel to make things look different, it just needs to have everything ripped out and replaced with new stuff.
And the popcorn ceiling should definitely go.
Online pictures look good but the hotel is shabby and in need of maintenance. Room heater blew out cold air half the time. The pool area/atrium looks nice at first glance but while the pool is heated (but only to 78°) the area is cold (some of the upper windows are open in January!). The hot tub is only heated to 102° which is just like warm. The staff is all very friendly!
Nice hotel with free WiFi, free breakfast, clean room, bar and restaurant. In door pool, Close to freeway easy on and off. Several restaurants close.
Checking in and out was extremely easy. I’ve stayed here several times with no problem
I stayed here for one night while driving to Southern California and was quite happy with what I got for the money. The hotel is a little older but well maintained. My room was quite large, comfortable, and clean. Although I didn't use it, the indoor pool in the central atrium area looked very nice. I also felt quite secure as all the entrances to the hallways were key card access only. As one of the less expensive options in Modesto, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
This is a great hotel to come to I travel a lot very nice costumer service. The food is good.you must stay at this hotel. The indoor pool is nice. When I come on business trip this is a place to stay at.
