Positive Reviews

Decent location

One of the plus points of this property definitely appears to be the location. Guests have found the property easy to access from the interstate and near shopping and dining spots. Also of note is the reasonable driving distance to the coast and area attractions.

Budget-friendly choice

Guests mention that they found the room rates here are low, so this hotel could be a good option if you’re on a tight budget during your stay. Freebies like breakfast and Wi-Fi don’t escape criticism but they won’t eat into your spends.

Friendly staff

Previous guests have tended to find the staff here is friendly. There are some exceptions but front desk services typically appear to run smoothly. Plus, guests report that the staff is happy to attempt to address any issues.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing rooms

Rooms here, while low-cost, often disappoint guests. Reviews reveal numerous complaints about the overall levels of cleanliness and comfort in the accommodation. Guests also mention that the rooms are poorly maintained and subject to noise from adjacent rooms, hallways, and traffic.

Breakfast could be improved

Breakfast at this Norca hotel won’t cost any extra but it seems that there is room for improvement concerning both the quality and choice of items on the buffet. Be in no doubt that this is a very basic offering.

Poorly maintained pool and spa

While some guests have enjoyed the pool and spa, others have found them dirty to the point that they saw trash floating in the water. This indicates that these amenities are not as frequently maintained as they should be.
