Guest Recommendations
"Outdated but did the job me and my wife enjoyed the jacuzzi tub."
Oscar from Watsonville, CA US rated Valley Park Hotel 9 out of 10 on January 01, 2013
Would Not Recommend It!!
"Room was to be nonsmoking, but a heavy spray or cleaning smell was trying to mask the smoky stink. The room stunk! Carpet was dirty. Bedding old and one pillow case was stained. Lighting was dim and overall room was very dingy. It's a shame this hotel is so old and tired as the location is fantastic. Brochure hype and internet pictures are NOT accurate for this property!!"

"Hotel is conveniently located next to all major freeways, excellent shopping within walking distance. We were pleased the hotel offered breakfast and dinner. While the meals were not gourmet, they did the job and considering most hotels do not offer this, I give them two thumbs up."

"tell the guy at the front desk to quit making personal calls on duty. he was too interested in his conversation to give me a door key that worked, so i had to lug my stuff all the way back down since i didn't trust the clientele, just to get a new key. pretty incompetent"
