It is modern and updated furnishings. The bath offers very nice soaps etc. not made in China, like they are for Marriott and Hilton. But...

During our emergency visit to La Mesa, we had to find a hotel at the last moment. We were able to make our reservation on-line easily. We arrived late at the hotel but the front desk was extremely friendly and made us welcomed. Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was high quality.

This hotel is in need of work. Wear and tear is showing. The A/C unit in our room was loud and inadequate. It's in need of dual pane windows to buffer freeway noise. It's not up to par with other BW Plus hotels. Hotel staff is courteous. This review focuses on the facility.

The room was nice, it was clean and nicely decorated. The hotel offers plenty amenities, especially for the price. The staff on duty...Jessika and Emily... when we checked in, and through-out the evening was superior. These ladies were friendly and helpful which we appreciated in these days of indifferent customer service. These ladies deserve a big thumbs up, Thanks!!
