Overall we were really happy with this accommodation and our short stay there. We stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend and when we checked in we were told it was probably the busiest weekend of the year as it was a Spanish/Mexican fiesta in town. That explained why availability in town was generally poor (and rates very high!).
The check in process was easy and friendly. We got into our room which was on the second floor and overlooked one of the pools. The room was great - large size with large flatscreen tv, fridge, bedside units, safe and plenty of room to store and hang clothes. The bed was really comfortable and had good quality linen and pillows so we slept well. I also liked having a balcony to relax on. The bathroom was great too. Plenty of room and good amenities. There was a shower over the bath.
The free wifi worked well with very few dropouts.
There was plenty of onsite parking.
There were two pools on the property and the one that our room overlooked was quite busy and we couldn't get sun loungers during the day. We did check the other pool which for some reason was much quieter and plenty of seats and sun loungers so we used that one. So it's worth checking out both pools. There was a spa/whirlpool next to each of the swimming pools. There was an ice machine and soft drinks vending machine next to the pools.
Location: there is a bus outside that takes you to Downtown for $1.75 each way (you need the correct money for the bus). It takes about 20 mins. And then returning from town we used uber which was approx $10 per ride back to hotel. Across from the hotel is a Macy's as well as a Vons supermarket and other coffee shops/small restaurants etc.
I'd be more than happy to stay here again. less
