The hotel was clean, staff was reasonably nice, and it was a good deal for the price because hotel rates are crazy these days. There isn't a lot to do at the hotel itself, and it isn't terribly picturesque, but if you're looking for a place to sleep, this is a decent one.

Definitely time for Hilton to invest in a refresh of this property. Read less

The location is great and easy to get to the freeway and main roads. The charge per night is a bit high if you take into consideration the condition of the rooms and bathroom. In my opinion, there was a motel feel to it. I would probably stay somewhere else next time due to this.

Service and amenities were fair at best. The hotel was not full by any means but we had a view of a wall. Could not get any glasses for wine we bought as even though some staff used - would not give us although we asked. Was not impressed

Located around neighborhoods, felt safe, elevators go opposite direction, COVID protocols aren’t always followed, cleanliness is good, housekeeping was on time, good location, uber/lyft were difficult to get on a saturday night from this location, expect to wait for one.
