Fodor's Review

Convenient to the freeway and 4th Street shopping, this peach-and-beige hotel provides good bang for the buck. The two-story property is surprisingly elegant; high ceilings lend the lobby and rooms an airy quality. Each room has a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, a microwave, a sink, and cabinets. The free amenities include a business center, a small but well-equipped gym, a breakfast bar each morning, and parking.
