Put off by deposit
Reviewed 28 July, 2021
This hotel has a $200 Deposit Additionally that is refunded but they do not tell you about this when booking .... They don't tell you about it until check in. They said they'd take cash or credit luckily I had a credit card..... Some I know don't and who carries that kind of cash..... I hate deposits as it assumes that you will wreck the room.....
Don't expect your deposit back

They charge a deposit and when you check out the refund your deposit the recharge you the deposit amount for a false claim of damages to the room. I would never go to this place again. I would sleep in your car first. I reserved it though Priceline and even they wouldn't fight for me. I went to my Bank and they went to bat for me and refunded my money because I had a receipt showing the refund... The law states that if they refund and give you a receipt and then charge you again that is fraud and is illegal... The place is also far from ADA compliant. The hand rails on the handicapped ramps are about 18 inches off the floor so you have to crawl on your knees to use the hand rails not to mention the ramps are far too narrow for allow access for wheel chairs. The place is unsafe an unsanitary. I became very ill from something there, fever and vomiting. DO NOT GO THERE.
Nice staff, but a dump of a hotel. Do not book hotels with Alaska Hotel Service. It's non refundable.

This is hands down the worst hotel I've stayed at. While the staff was friendly and welcoming, the room smelled like an ashtray, even though the rooms are all non smoking. Bed linens, table and tub were clean and you can tell the housekeepers did their job. My issue is the mechanical side of things. The air conditioner was a joke. It was noisy, around 78 decibels. It was tampered so you couldn't just put it on fan mode. The windows did not open wide enough to keep your body cool. The remote control needed new batteries. The TV had to be turned on manually by pressing the side button. The sofa had stains that were so gross I had to put bed linens on top of it just to sit down. The doors had so many scratches that could be easily painted over in 2 minutes, but they just leave it to show the guests how they little they care about maintenance. The sink was old, stained and disgusting. It shows it's age, but again, this particular owner of the Choice Chain doesn't care about impressions. See photos. They tell you everything. Because of the air conditioning unit, I slept only 30 minutes on my first night. My trip was prepaid for and I wasn't eligible for refund. I fled the hotel to stay 15 miles east at Sheraton in Pomona, which was a treasure of a hotel. I do love Alaska Airlines, but I will never book a hotel through them in the future. It's non-refundable. Normally, if I had made reservations and I saw my room, I would have returned back to the front desk, ask for money back and leave the premise. Because I book with Alaska Airlines, it was prepaid for two nights and NON-REFUNDABLE. I explained the situation with Alaska Hotel Concierge who did her best to contact the hotel for compensation. Choice Hotel flat out told them that there was nothing wrong with their hotel. So in summary....two businesses will never earn my business: Choice Hotels (anywhere in the country) and Alaska Airlines (hotel only).

I learned why you should read the reviews now. The pictures on the site look lovely and inviting but in fact, we walked in to a horrible situation. We checked in late because we had been driving all day. After getting checked in we went to our rooms. They appeared to be clean. There was alot of kids at the pool and at the hotel in general but that did not really bother me. My daughter started to get sick as did I. Upon looking more clearly at the room, since I did sleep there the previous night, I found mold and mildew throughout my bathroom. I then checked my daughters room and we found the same problem. This may have something to do with it being on the first floor and pool side, but regardless, it should not have been rented. Not only was there mold in the bathroom but on the room archway above the beds. Unacceptable. My friend came and we had a reservation for her but decided to book an AirBNB. I went to the front desk and told the man there that we were checking out and to cancel her stay. I explained to him why I was leaving and he acted as if this was a normal thing. Then, I am in my room, packing things (there is 5 of us in 2 rooms) and taking them to my car. I come back in (this is about 3pm) and there is 4 housekeeping ladies standing outside of our rooms just looking at us as to hurry us along. The front desk person offered us nothing for the inconvenience nor did he say he would have his staff check the room. My husband did take pictures. I will be contacting corporate and sending them pictures. Over the course of 3.5 weeks, I stayed at about 8 Choice Hotels and this by far was the worst. DO NOT BOOK HERE!!
Most worst hotel I ever been !!
