Very Good8.0
Quiet considering closeness to highway
Top shelf linens, mattress, and biggest ceiling fan I have seen. Shower could use a light, but other than that, not much wrong with the room. No real close restaurants. Be prepared to get on the 101 and head south. To get to the hotel northbound you need to exit 101 and then do a U-turn and get back on the 101 for 1 exit. Be careful when exiting hotel parking and getting on the road because traffic vision is blocked by parked cars. I would stay here again.
