During my 2 night stay, I experienced no issue whatsoever. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My room was spacious, room 101, and very clean. The hotel is located close to the 15 freeway but far enough not to hear any traffic noise. I loved the new look of the breakfast area. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and very...

It seems that the rooms are not being cleaned daily and the breakfast is of low quality. Laundry services are not available. Front desk mentioned that they are not sure if the laundry will get back in time. Also, coffee from the lobby is tasteless. Toilet amenities are not replenished. No slippers provided.

I recently stayed at this hotel even though it was under construction the staff was very apologetic about the construction. What I found unexpected was how rude the Supervisor named Gina was to the housekeepers. It is a shame. Edwin was very helpful and very pleasant.

John G, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am very sad to hear that a member of my management team was less than respectful to our support team. Leadership through fear or rudeness is not a supported action and I will be sure to address this with Gina and give her the support she needs...

I was very apprehensive about staying at this hotel after reading previous poor reviews about the staff and service at this hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprise when upon arrival I found that the hotel is under new management. In addition, I found the present staff and management quite wonderful. They were very nice and kind and answered all of...

I didn't love or hate this hotel. The room is nice. The bathroom is nice, save for the fact there is no fan so after every shower you have to walk your naked butt out to fan the smoke detector that goes off. The breakfast in the morning is pretty good, more than just coffee, juice, and muffins. Our experience...

Hotel was under construction which they dont tell you about when you book. Bugs were found in the room. Asked for a room a little away from the elevator, was placed right next to the elevator. Shower pressure was low and sink smelled of sewage. They only have one vending machine which wasnt working so their solution is to send...

Even though this hotel was almost complete with their renovation, everything was still excellent. The pool, spa, and business center was available next door at their sister property. The breakfast was good, just make sure you take a sweater in case the air conditioner is going, the room does get chilly fast. Friendly staff, comfortable beds.

Typical Holiday Inn. Nothing fancy, and no unpleasant surprises. Decent breakfast considering it's free, and again, nothing fancy, but no unpleasant surprises. Worthy of note, and worth a laugh, is the new pancake machine. It's actually pretty amazing, and I found it funny to watch. You walk up to it, press a button on the front, and 60 seconds later,...
