I stayed here for 4 days staff was amazing. I loved the lady in the front she helped me out a couple of times. 10/10 customer service. Me being me I I accidentally locked my key card and keys to the car in the room going out for another bag. The lady was understanding even though I felt super embarrassed and stupid. But that isn't the only thing that happened during my trip. We had went to Disneyland I lost a bag I had all my ID my husband id, debit, fs, health care insurance card, my cash, and both damn copies of key cards . I was scared they weren't going to let me get another key card. Thank God the nice gentleman that night helped me out and was able to give me another key. I was so thankful cuz all i wanted to do was rest my feet and relax. Atleast at this hotel i could take a breather and relax and felt comfortable. And one thing that i felt was amazing i had went to go use the microwave at 10:30 not knowing that they shut down the lobby early but the guy let use the microwave tht night and thank god he did bcuz like i said i didnt have anything that day i lost all my money nd cards we were stuck eating leftovers from the previous days nd i dont know about you but cold tamales arent it. I was having a lot of crazy bad luck last week. Thank you to the hotel for making my stay a little bit better. Just a friendly reminder clean up after yourselves don't leave the room Messy they have enough rooms to clean. I met the cleaning lady she was wonderful and deserves nothing but kindness of others.

They are only a couple of downfalls. The people on the side of us on I believe our 3rd nd 4th day were loud and had music blasting. Which isn't the hotels fault but it was a little annoying. And on the 2nd or 3rd night the roaches started showing up. It wasn't alot but I'd see them every so often. Roaches don't scare me tho.

I enjoyed the staff mainly; always showed me a smile and always seemed to be able to answer my questions whatever they were. I felt valued as a customer.

One thing that could be improved on either by the City or their own, is to install noise canceling walls inside the rooms themselves so if a customer is trying to sleep they won't be interrupted by racing engines and skids.

Everything else was great

Had a trailer and the facility could not accommodate it so I had to park a half a block away. Usually can park in a slot then park my SUV next to it and or keep it together and park on the side or the back, but not here.
