I was there on business. The office made a mistake and send me 10 miles away from the hotel. I had no funds to get a taxi to the hotel. The night manager and driver went and got me. I would have been lost and stranded if they didn't do this. Thank you James and Phylicia (I hope that's her... More

The people at the front desk were very kind and helpful to us and so were the shuttle drivers and kitchen staff. The rooms are clean and spacious and have very comfortable beds. The hotel has a convenient location: close... More

This was my first time staying at this hotel. Being close the airport was a plus, and I was impressed with the condition of the hotel and with how clean my room was. I left an important personal article and Mona in Housekeeping was so helpful in getting it back to me. I will stay here again!

Had an early morning flight to Long Beach... so this place was an overnight stay. It's called an airport hotel but still a drive away from the airport. Had free wifi which was a plus. Breakfast was served in a restaurant below for $10 or so pp. Rooms were spacious & Clean! Everything else like restaurants are a drive away!
