We needed to stay here when our floor was being pulled up due to a water pipe leak. The insurance company put us up in this hotel and it was great for myself, my daughter, and my granddaughter. We liked having a suite. The only thing lacking was it did not have a pool.

This was our last stop after over 2,200 mile trip in So Cal, Nevada and Arizona. It was fine for a couple of nights but is slightly out of the way, although only $8-$10 by Uber to the Gaslamp District. The rooms were certainly large and the place being pretty new was clean and modern. Our stay felt very comfortable.... More

Had rented a 2 bedroom suite. It was a bit of an odd arrangement as the 2nd bedroom runs off the main lounge room and it had no doors. Other than this, the rooms are very modern and large. Great bed.
