Don’t stay here! Not worth the headache.
Terrible customer service and room wasn’t what was advertised.

Little getaway
Fit our needs with 2 kids. Lots of dogs barking in their rooms, but didn't disrupt up. Could feel the beds vibrate and shake while they were doing laundry on the 2nd floor. Overall pleasant hotel, staff and great location.

Very disappointed.
We have stayed here in the past and really loved it. Noticed a big difference in staff friendliness to the negative this time. The hall carpet was very worn and in need of replacement. The room smelled like chemicals and the air conditioner had a musty smell. The sheets and blanket that was provided to make up the sofa bed were old and worn. So disappointed this time. I’m afraid we will not return.

Near to Legoland & Safari World . Easy access
Although the hotel is just off the 8 freeway it was so quiet ! Even with the AC off it was a quiet hotel !! The breakfast was very nice & fresh !! The front desk staff was very pleasant & helpful . We needed to change rooms & they understood our concerns .

Please change the type of toilet paper. I dislike when the plies separate so the perforations are not synchronized.
