    everything about the hotel was wonderful! the staff was very friendly and helpful. we did encounter a problem with the air conditioner with the room that was originally given to us. when we called down to the front desk the clerk was very apologetic and said that she would send someone up to check on the problem. we did have to wait 30 minutes and when no one arrived i called again this time i let her know we wanted to go to Great America and so we would like for someone to come soon. again the clerk was very nice and within the 5 min i had called the last time an employee came in and checked the AC and offered us another room. we excepted and within 5 min we were in our new room. i thought this hotel was amazing and we will definitely stay again and recommend to our friends and family.

    The only thing i was disappointed with was that there was no shuttle to or from Great America. Even though its about 10 to 12 min walk, after a long day at the park the last thing i wanted to do is walk back to our hotel. one other thing is that in our first room we were put in i felt like this room has been out of service for a while. there were cob webs in the corners of the room on the ceiling and when we tried ourselves to get the AC to work we noticed it was very dusty and could of used some TLC.

    I like the way the provided transportation services. I was taking the California Bar Exam and they give me transportation for 3 days. However, the driver was runing late the first day.

    The thing I did not like was the price about the booking online and the hotel. Firstly, someone put a bill for 153 dollars for night under my door I took it and I went to the Manager office to tell him, I booked for 5 days. Friday morning when they give my bill, I saw some nights cost $153 others cost $199. I told the front desk employee I suppose to pay $153 for each night and I left a note for the manager.

    The staff was very friendly the room was clean and comfortable, everything you need either in walking or easy driving distance. I stayed here with my teenage children and the place was amazing, the pool & hot tub were very nice too. This is a great place to stayand the price was great .

    I liked the mid-century modern designs of the hotel. Great colors. Great bed. Took an old motel and updated it magnificently. We would definitely stay there again.

    Very affordable and much more than expected. I wasn't sure what I was going to encounter at such an affordable rate and I was so surprised!! The room was so much nicer than expected and the amenities that were offered were excellent!! I would definitely stay there again!!

    Took a while for us to check in - hotel waiting for booking info from website.

    I travel there from Australia, as do my staff. We have stayed there, on and off for about 3 years, often in one week blocks. We like it's central location and it's affordability. As a young start-up company we watch our pennies and your hotel has all we need for a stay which is mainly focused around work. The staff are always nice and friendly. Parking is easy, and breakfast right next door makes things easy!

    I have a major problem which, unless it's fixed next time I stay there, will stop me and my staff from ever coming back. I find the internet connections (which are *essential* for my team to work effectively with our Australian colleagues) is just not acceptable any longer. The wireless is erratic, and having to pay for a supposedly "better" connection is (a) not acceptable in this day and age and (b) does not seem to make a difference anyway. Your hotel is in *Silicon Valley* for Pete's sake... fast, reliable internet should be a mandatory service in your hotel. It's not as if it costs much. I've found McDonald's nearby gave me better connections... That's not good enough, I'm sorry. Please invest a pittance to ensure better connectivity, and the business folks will keep coming back. Thanks for listening.

    It was easy to check in and a room switch (for a room with 2 doubles instead of 1 king) was super easy. Everything was really cute, room was comfy and very clean. I would definitely stay here again. It wasn't fancy, but I appreciate cleanliness above all else and you guys had that wired!

    No extra amenities - morning buffet bfast would have been awesome! 10% discount at nearby ihop isn't really worth anything so we didn't take advantage of it. I wish check out time would have been later.

    Nice fresh style

    Value for money not good (E.G. compare Plaza Suites - room is bigger, breakfast included and 3 happy hour drinks; quality of bathroom much better - same price (although claimed "discounted" I get the same price all the time).
