Very nice hotel with excellent staff throughout. When booking we thought it was a little too out of the way, and to be honest it is but when you have a car it’s fine. In fact I was glad of the peacefulness at night. I actually found the location great as you are literally beside I-5 and everywhere is easy to access. Even if you don’t have a car there is a MTS trolley/bus station a 5 minute walk away on E 24th Street where $5 gets you a one day unlimited travel pass. There is a restaurant/bar called Goodies which is not up to much but again a 2 minute drive/5 minute walk away there is a Denny’s, In & Out Burger, Chick-Fill-A, Freddy’s Steak House, Chipotle, Starbucks and a few smaller places. The room was very well equipped with TV, refrigator, microwave and safe. Plenty of storage space and the bathroom was well stocked with towels and a hairdryer. We had a double queen room with a balcony overlooking the pool. The pool is kept clean and heated and towels are provided and replenished several times a day so you don’t need your beach towels or room towels. The hot tub is exactly that - hot. I sat in for 15 minutes and woke up the next day unable to move my back. It’s a week on now and my back is still out. Coffee is available from 5am in reception free and there is a Bisiness Room begins reception with free internet access and a printer which is really handy. Hotel has free WiFi throughout also. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would stay again.
