This was a last minute trip to the coast and as this was the ONLY place left with openings for pets we stayed here. The staff is beyond helpful and considerate. That is the big plus. Our room was old and in need of repair but otherwise clean as can be and our bed was a brand new pillow top.... More

We have stayed there on many occasions and have found the hotel maintenance to have been continually deferred. The carpet on the second floor is very dirty. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom lacked a stopper in the sink making it necessary to let the water run while shaving. The exhaust fan moved very little air. And... More

Staff at the hotel were very nice and very helpful and friendly. The hotel was old, stains on carpet and needed refurbished. The bed was comfortable. There were some questionable, possibly homeless people in the area, which as a little scary but there were no problems at the hotel.

This property has rooms on the second floor but no elevator, so make sure if you need a room with ground floor access you ask. On the other hand the staff at this property was very helpful and great to work with. The room was super comfortable, the Wi-Fi worked great, there were lots of thick pillows (when did hotels...

We stayed here one night in July 2014 and it was awful. The place is completely worn down and definitely needs a face lift. Once we entered the room, the walls were dirty, furniture chipped, and hole in cabinet. The blanket on the bed had holes in it that were created from cigarette burns which was odd because we were...

The hotel needs update. The sheets are stained and dirty. So are the mattress pads and bedspreads. The main heart of the hotel is the laundry room. It is old dirty and disgusting. The floor the linens and the machines. Owners needs to invest his money into better working conditions and facilities for the employees. Very disappointed. The condition of... More

We stayed here near the end of a long road trip. Our trip started in Denver, went north through Washington and then we drove the Oregon Coastline and Redwoods before heading back to Denver. This hotel is very close to the junction of HWY 101 and 299, perfect as a stopover before heading to Reno. The hotel is a little... More

My stay here served my purpose for a place to sleep. I was gone most of each day that I was there so the room did not bother me so much. The pluses: Good value, free breakfast, hot shower and pleasant employees. The minuses: The room needed a makeover (peeling wallpaper, stain on the chair), the walls are thin (I... More

This is an older property giving an effort at overhaul. Great location. Several newer amenities in the room: hairdryer, wifi, coffee pot, fridge and microwave. However the linens were very worn and the mattresses were old and very flat. The bathroom had beautiful tile, but there was a very large infestation of mold around the tub which had been painted...

I booked this hotel because I needed some where inexpensive to stay in a safe area while traveling alone. I had very low expectations of the hotel before arrival and was pleasantly surprised with my stay. The front desk clerks were extremely friendly and courteous. I had a few issues with my room key demagnetizing and unlike other places I... More
