The Library has permanent exhibits which present Reagan's life from his birth on February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois until his death on June 5, 2004.

... window. When we had boarded the plane in Philadelphia, we had no idea what we were going to do for this day. I had grown up in California,lived in LA for 4 years, and been back numerous times, so there wasn't much we hadn't seen. Airline magazines are useful for crossword puzzles, Sudoku and the like, but rarely have I found anything all that interesting in terms of content, until Keith picked up the one in his seat on the flight ...

It was time to find the hotel and check in. Off we went down Santa Monica Boulevard, five lanes of slow moving traffic, and that's just one way. You don't get anywhere fast in LA. Every other car seems to be a Mercedes, BMW, Bentley or Jaguar, with the ...

This is not just about me though. Claudia, whom I consider to be one of my best friends and co-worker is coming with me. It's her first time in Germany and Europe and I want to show off my native country. I don't mind seeing the same places again, it's different when there's someone to share ...
A big day today after a sleepless night ... Steve thinks he has a blood clot in his foot and so spent the best part of the night either stressing about it or reading up on the Internet about it. So when the alarm went off at 6.30am I reckon I had had less than 2 hours sleep. Having decided to dose up on aspirin instead of seeking medical help (I hope I don't have to regret writing this in some awful kind of hindsight!!) he decided to dose up on aspirin and almonds (for the fatty ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Vista Hotel Simi Valley
Okay for price
After reading previous reviews, we weren't expecting much. Room was very cheap. We were pleasantly surprised. Room was clean, front desk was okay. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, Yes, the hotel needs to be renovated - but considering the lodging options in Simi, this is better than most. Will stay here again.
I hear footsteps, otherwise very nice!
What a value at $60 per night from Orbitz! Lobby and pool area were realy nice as well as the workout room. The included breakfast was a complete breakfast not just a wimpy Continental.
Room was about average, however, like another reviewer, I could hear the person above walking around their room. Thank goodness there wasn't any monkey business! But the creaking floor and thud, thud, thud footsteps were annoying enough! Stay on an upper floor and I think you'll be alright.
A good deal for the non picky
This hotel is very accessible if you need to be in the area. The staff are very nice and accommoating. I run a hotel,so I can be some what fair. You must ask for a quiet room, but the walls are somewhat paper thin. So, make sure you are away from the bar.Rooms are very dated,they have spent their money in their lobby and food and beverage outlets. The rooms could be cleaner, even if they are older. We got free breakfast vouchers, you have to get there early, as they didn't refill items, but a good value. The airconditioner/heater is like a jet engine, so hope for neutral weather, as it is not bearable.
Would go back, the value is very good. Close to everything, they just need to update their rooms a bit, and housekeeping could be better...and the towels were paper thin...
What a deal!
I decided to stay in Simi Valley at the last moment on the Friday before Presidents Day (long weekend). Holiday Inn Express and Motel 6 (both in Simi Valley) were much more expensive than the $53!!! I paid online (Orbitz or Travelocity) for this great hotel. We received 2 free drink coupons and 2 free breakfast buffet coupons! The bar was lively and the breakfast was adequate. The room was clean with all of the usual amenities but also with a microwave and refrigerator! What a deal! I will definitely come back here again.
We stayed at the Grand Vista while visiting family in Moorpark. The lobby of the hotel is lovely and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. The room was ordinary...the toilet didn't flush very well, the bathroom did not have a vent (so that by the time you finished a shower, the room was totally foggy and hot). There were two refrigerators and a microwave, which was useful. The rooms were clean and housekeeping provided whatever we needed quite quickly.
I just returned from a 16 day stay at the Grand Vista. It is the hotel of choice for my company when they send employees to their training center in Simi Vally. I was a little concerned when I read the reviews on here. I was expecting something worse than your average Motel 6.
I stayed at the Grand Vista while on business in Simi Valley. The hotel appears "old" inside and out. The rooms just aren't up to par, especially for the price paid (a $130 "corporate rate"...I wouldn't have stayed had the money been coming from my own pocket). The room smelled musty and the carpet/furniture looked well used. Some remodeling should certainly be done especially with the new Town Center being built right next to the hotel. The staff was friendly, so no complaints there. The best thing about my stay was ordering from Red's (a bbq place that advertises in the Hotel Information guide). I ordered from Red's 3 out of the 4 days I stayed. Despite it's downfalls, the hotel is very close to where I visit in Simi and, therefore, I will be staying there again. This time I got a much better rate through Expedia.
In need of renovation
Stayed there over a weekend in May 2005. About the best thing that can be said of this hotel is that it has convenient freeway access. The sound insulation on the walls must be paper-thin because just sitting in our room we could hear the conversations and TV of our neighbors quite well (especially when we were trying to sleep). The carpet in our room was worn and somewhat dingy. The air conditioner and small refrigerator were noisy also. We didn't use any of the hotel's other amenities, so I can't comment on that. However, we experienced enough to know that we would not stay there again, even if we had to pay more for a room at another hotel located in a less-convenient location.
Stayed here on business for four nights in May '05. Hotel is 1 minute from freeway and gives easy access to Simi Valley grid of sequential strip malls. Room was fine - king bed, desk, sofa. Some minor quirks - bathroom door won't stay open, AC/heat unit rather loud, TV doesn't swivel (and thus doesn't face sofa). But all in all no problems. Hotel has a sports bar and breakfast was included in rate (though I wasn't able to try it so can't comment). Fitness center small but adequate for stair machine-type workout. Service was friendly after late check-in. What makes the place above average, really, was cost, which was well under $100/night on Hotwire. The place is certainly better value for money than the Holiday Inn express (where I've also stayed) and which is in the same ballpark in terms of room size, furnishings, etc. (As that suggests, the Grand Vista really isn't grand. But it does have a nice vista.)
Don't stay there!
We had three of our top executives stay there, and they wanted to leave as soon as they arrived. The non-smoking rooms obviously had smokers staying in there. One of the rooms still had condom packages in the night stand. They do have a restaurant on the property, but we did not have time to try it. I think the options in Simi Valley are limted, but we will drive to a different city next time we visit.
