Hotel parking is kind of tight, but it's right off the freeway and not noisy. Also, right next door there is a mexican restaurant called "El Pueblo Mexican Food" attached to the Valero gas station. A quick bite yes, a hole in the wall somewhat, but VERY good food, highly recommend.

Pros: I would give 5 stars to staff! Everyone was amazing and helpful. Free breakfast was good! The ladies in the dining area were all very attentive and were on it. Location is right off the freeway and is next to a gas station/ taco place that sells 99c fish tacos. The main areas of the property looked nice and updated. Cons: The rooms were a different matter. The bathtub glaze was peeling off and flakes of it were in the bath water when I tried to give the kids a bath. The coat hook panel was falling off so we couldn’t hang anything up and there were no other hooks to hang wet clothing/ towels. There was nowhere to sit except for the one chair by the desk so if there’s more than 1 person staying, then one person would have to eat standing up or eat in bed. The pool was dirty. The hot tub was green with algae. Overall good value for your money and will stay here again but would not be our first choice
