We were a bit scared staying here at first. We were chatting with some retired locals we met in a nearby restaurant (10 miles away) - they were telling us about how rough Lake Elsinore is, with shootings and gang activity - it scared the heck out of my wife. Upon getting to the hotel, though, it seems nice and we had next to zero problems.
We were given a pool side room, and it had doors on both sides of the room. One to the hallway - one to the pool patio. It was very nice for when my boys and I hopped out for a dip in the hot tub at night.
Breakfast was very good, with lots of hot food to choose from. It was always warm and well stocked.
Biggest problem would have to be smell of marijuana in the property. The problem is, though, I think the pot smell was coming from the front desk clerk, as the smell followed him in from going outside. Granted, these laws on pot are changing, but it’s still not the odor you want to be greeted with at the front desk with your kids. Other than that, it was nice. I’d consider a return visit. Backyard view is pretty, too!
I travel extensively for my work, and provide reviews for EVERY hotel I stay at - both good and bad. I use TripAdvisor quite often in my bookings of hotels, and reviewing is a great way to give back to the TripAdvisor community. I give honest and frank reviews. less
