"Overall good value but wouldn't stay again."

My brother, friend and I stayed here for 4 nights for Comic-Con. It's a good value and was very clean but cons are the location. It's too far to walk to any restaurants and to get to the MTS trolley line. I left like it was a dead zone. Also when checking out the man at the desk told me my card was being declined and I said, "I already paid when arriving, why are you charging my card?" I would not have cared until Chase shut my card off thinking someone stole it because now the bank thought I had 2 charges to a hotel. I had to take care of that mess. I'm glad we spend most of our time camping at the convention center.

"Small things count"

We stayed here while I attended a conference. Great location to get to most tourist attractions. Beds were good. Staff friendly. AC worked well. Parking is bad. There is an $8 a night fee to park in tiny spaces. My wife hit a column in the garage trying to pull out one night. The cable tv is horrible. Fuzzy and no Disney channel. We had not planned to spend that much time in the room but when one daughter got sick, it was what we had to do. The cartoon network has too much trash on it. Reception was fuzzy. The set up of the breakfast room is bad. I could barely walk to get to food. I have stayed in several lqs and this breakfast room was the worst. A few little things could really make this hotel worth the price.

"I expected better for the $"

This is not a good place to stay. Avoid it at all costs. First the parking spaces are very narrow. Those of us with full size SUVs are in trouble. Parking is $8/night. Since when do motels charge for parking? The room they gave me was hot and stuffy when I arrived. The A/C in the bedroom worked, the A/C in the sitting room did not and the fan was extremely loud. I complained and got a different room. The second room smelled heavily of insecticide and guess what, only the bedroom A/C worked. The rates are outrageous and the overall facility appears run down. Oh oh I almost forgot. The pillows on the bed are half size, like throws. I have never seen this before. They must have booked a family of hippos in the room above me. I can here every footstep from the creaking floor. If you're coming here, bring a bulldozer and put this place out of it's misery.

"Soccer tournament stay"

Meegan B | San Jacinto, United States
Great location. Central to all our venues. Awesome front desk staff. Clean and quiet room. King suite room was good size. Breakfast was great with a very nice staff. Very comfy beds. When we checked in there were a lot of cars so I assumed it would be busy and loud. We never ran into anyone in the halls, elevators, or heard anyone walking by our room.

"Not what we expected"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 21, 2014
Jessica M | 
Our stay was not what we had expected. The parking lot is very cramped. We have a Ford F150 and it was extremely difficult to menuver the small parking lot and stalls. To turn the corner from the lobby to the parking area we had to back up and go forward a couple of times. All the rows to drive down dead end and is difficult to turn around, and in our case we had to a few times as it was difficult finding a parking stall. The parking stalls were small. The parking is limited and the majority of the parking in underground. The elevator was run down and in need of upgrades and repairs, the floor was broke off on the edges. The rooms were small and the restroom bathtub had body hairs on the tub. The beds were comfortable for the most part. The rooms could use some updating. Overall it felt like they took a small piece of property and tried to make it into a hotel. The hotel is right off of the freeway but we were in the back of the building and there was not a noise issue.
