I always stay here when visiting family in Glendora after a couple of bad experiences at other independent lower class places. It is very clean, quiet, great breakfasts, and responsive, friendly staff. I felt very safe staying here alone.
My only problem during this stay was with some automatic sensors that have been placed on the lights at the entrance to the room. I do not recall this problem with past stays, so think they may be newly installed - or maybe they don't operate correctly in this room.
The overhead lights in the room are operated by switches with sensors at the door to the room. The problem is that in the middle of the night if you get up to go to the bathroom, the movement triggers the sensors and the lights blast on all throughout the room waking anyone in it. Luckily, I was alone but after triggering the lights which woke me up completely, I had to figure out how to turn them off and then couldn't get back to sleep. When I mentioned this to the staff, they immediately came to my room to try to shut off the sensor part of the light. A valiant effort and I appreciate the quick response, but it didn't work. My solution was to cover the sensors with some duct tape that I carry and usually use to cover all the annoying lights from TV etc. Maybe I'm overly sensitive, but there should be a solution for those of us who don't want the lights to turn on automatically at all times of day or night. My recommendation to any traveler is to carry a little bit of duct tape or other tape with you when you travel! less
