What people say

From the moment we checked in the staff were friendly and welcoming, It felt like a home away from a home! I would thoroughly recommend staying at The hotel California Best Western, The location is central and the staff treat you like your in a 5 star hotel!. Room was beautiful. Walking distance to most every where. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. I had read about the noise but you are in a big city so its to be expected. I didn't think it was bad at all though.
