The motel room was very big. But the mattress was very uncomfortable and could have been cleaned a little better. The gentleman was very nice when we checked out. Went out of his way to make sure we had there continental breakfast. The grounds on the motel was very pretty.

This hotel could be, I repeat COULD BE a pretty cool place as the views from the canal side are peaceful as you sit out on the decks right at waters edge and watch nature. The sad reality, is they are stuck in the 70's on décor, and the beds although solid, aren't pillow top by any means, but the... More

The hotel looked well kept, staff very good and friendly so no problem there, plenty of car parking spaces, room was comfortable and spacious, breakfast was fine and area clean, we only stayed one night but couldn't see any problem for anyone staying longer

I'm sorry, but the website is incredibly misleading. Please avoid this place at all costs. I am surprised that this hotel gets away with it's advertisements of city view rooms and such. I had a view of the back of a bowling alley. My non-smoking room smelled like smoke, cigarette burns on the floor and on the couch. Fortunately they... More

I booked a two bed room. It was a spacious room with plenty of closet space. Beds were solid and comfortable. They are not featherbeds that you sink into if you are looking for that. The room had a kitchenette which I didn't need on this trip but good to know for future trips. The bathroom was a bit dated... More

We spent three nights in this nice place, which were dedicated to shopping allon the NImitz highway. From ther we proceeded to a three week drive in the parks of the South West USA. The room was perfect for going in and out with shopping' and for packing and arranging luggage towards the long trip. The small bedroom is more... More

Very unfriendly staff. Upon our arrival, we were placed in an upstairs unit (no elevators). We requested a ground floor room and was told there were none. We told the desk clerk we would find another place. As we were walking toward the door, a ground floor room magically appeared. We went to the room very tired and much to... More

My husband and I stayed here while vacationing for a week in CA. The room was large with a lot of closet space, a separate living room and kitchen. It is also located right near the beach, and is across from a large shopping area with grocery stores and restaurants. Outside of those amenities the room was fair, but not... More

Agree with another reviewer here that with some investment, this could be a very good place. There were enough overseas tourists at the place (ourselves included) to suggest its location is a winner. Yes it's very very tired, but the shower worked well, the wifi was fast, breakfast okay, and beds comfortable. Good kitchen but no crockery, or cutlery. But... More

I needed a place for one night. All they had available was a suite. I figured, OK the place is full, it must be nice. Wrong! After getting over the initial "price shock", I went up to the room. At first glance it looked very 1970's but I was tired so I went down and got my things. I went... More
