We were tired and it was getting late so ended up checking into this hotel. The front desk staff was very nice. Older hotel but looked like it was acceptable for the price. Once in the room we relayed you get what you pay for. TV reception that was fuzzy on an older TV. Internet that faded in and out.... More

This hotel was very convenient it is close to the freeway and not too expensive. The front desk clerk Michelle was very friendly informed us about the things the... More

Cheap, run down, almost vacant. Ice machine was broke even though they insisted it worked. When I persisted they gave me a bag of ice from their personal apartment behind the lobby. There's nothing there but a Jack in the Box, but the next exit north has a slew of motels and restaurants. Good place for truckers though, for the... More

Ceiling fans! Cappuccino machine! This is definitely a budget hotel with fancy hotel aspirations. Bed was clean. Front desk staff is very friendly. Well lit grounds. We felt safe. Breakfast is extremely continental but good. One can't go wrong by staying at this diamond in the rough.

We stayed there for 3 nights and found service to be very good. The room was clean and beds were firm. The room was okay. One draw back was the internet service was very weak and made surfing the web VERY slow. That was frustrating to use. The Continental breakfast was okay, but it is just a continental breakfast.

Date of stay 21/03/13. Duration 1 night. We stopped here primarily to break our journey from Las Vegas to San Francisco. We were checking in quite late in the evening and just wanted somewhere to sleep. Free onsite car park. The receptionist was pleasant and check in was smooth. The room (no. 214) was a reasonable size and had an... More

We were pleased with almost everything. The room was clean and pleasant. The staff was very nice. There is an IHOP, a gas station and a Jack in the Box within one block. The air conditioning was off when we got there but we flipped it on and went to get a quick bite to eat and when we got... More
