OK if you have kids

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by a traveler from Travelocity.com on November 28, 2007

This hotel had a good quiet location just off of I-5. The staff was friendly and helpful. Housekeepers and room maitenance people spoke little or no english. (a pet peeve of mine) Our King Bed suite was split into two very small rooms. The bedroom portion left very little room to maneuver around in. The bed itself was comfortable and it sported six pillows plus two more in the closet. This was a nice touch since I like a lot of pillows.The smoke detector was located very close to the bathroom door and it was activated by steam coming from the shower. Make sure you keep the bathroom door closed during and after showering. The light in the bathroom itself was very dim so if reading on the toilet is a activity you engage in while on the toilet you'll be dissapointed. The vanity was very small and barely had enough room for me and my wife's toiletries. The two 27" TVs were a nice touch and they had 3 ESPN channels. There were no premium cable channels such as HBO or Showtime but they did have pay per view movies. They also lacked channels like Discovery, TLC, A & E, Food Network, etc., etc. The kitchen was small but nice. They did provide a fair amount of kitchenware. The refrigerator was nice to keep drinks and restaurant leftovers in. The kitchen would be adequate to prepare small meals if you feel the need. I read in several reviews that the daily complimentary breakfast was quite good but I didn't find that to be the case. You can make your own waffles but they were just OK. Too many families with kids for our tastes.
