The rooms needed updating, the rooms were clean, tv problems, bath fixtures about to come out of the wall, holes in the carpets, but the staff was friendly & helpful with what they had, free wi-fi wasn't working

Fernando checked us in late at night and he realized how tired we were so he sped up the process which we greatly appreciated. The room was nice and quiet and the Direct TV made me feel just... More

We were driving from San Francisco to LA so the location, just seconds off the I-5, was perfect. Upon exiting the car, it immediately smelt strongly of manure. This odor disappeared however once we got inside our room. To be honest, the room wasnt great. The wifi was down while we visited, there was a wet towel left in the... More

The staff here was great Fernando checked us in and made us feel right at home. The stop was convenient especially when your eyes feel heavy and your falling asleep on the long stretch after the grapevine. The rooms were newly renovated and the price was great. Will definitely stay here again.

Rooms were newly renovated and clean the staff was great. Fernando checked us in with excellent hospitality, I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. It gets semi-busy on weekends so making a reservation is a plus.

I think the rooms are newly renovated and was given away for a very low price to gather good reviews here again. Because I saw by the door the original price list, and it's over $150 per night (supposedly). But I guess... More
