A group of friends and I needed three rooms at the last minute on a Friday afternoon. I called and was able to get them right away. When we arrived we were immediately checked in and the rooms were very clean. I was impressed as to how quiet the area was despite the fact it is conveniently located right off...

I stayed here for a night in August as a cheap stop while driving down the West Coast. Room was okay but cleanliness wasn't too great, we found a French fry on the chair and hair in the sink. The area didn't feel too safe and there wasn't much near by, but if you're just stopping for a night that's...

I went here this last weekend after getting late tickets for the Concourse in Pebble Beach. This was the only hotel that had a room available with the number of beds I needed. I understand that hotels charge what the market can handle but this was ridiculous. I would have rather stayed in Carmel and will next time. The room...

Best beds in the area, but no vending machines. Was located next to the freeway, but left fan running all night to block out the noise. Stayed during peak times so room was a bit pricy, but the beds were amazing

Bed was very hard and uncomfortable. My husband and I woke up with backaches. Bathrom wasn't very clean. There was cereal on the floor. To flush the toilet you had to hold the lever. There weren't any hangers to hang up your clothes on. They advertised onlina business center but when we asked about it, the owner said that the...

The nasty couch shoved under the outdoor stairwell pretending to be a "lounge area" was omen #1, well actually the EMPTY parking lot was #1. The "continental breakfast nook" without tables or chairs was another deception. We merely opened the door to our room and peeked in to determine that we were NOT staying. When we discussed our displeasure with...
