I know you get what you pay for. But even for $40/night, I expect a bed and a shower. The wifi didn't work, carpet was like moldy squishy disgusting, and no hot water. Breakfast? Cold cereal and waffles. Not even a piece of toast, cmon! Management let us into the room next door for a hot shower and refused any... More

Stayed there one night while on my way to Hollywood. Very nice room for under $40. Room seemed clean and everything worked properly. They have a decent breakfast selection, albeit served in a small area. I got a top floor room as I usually do in motels so I cannot speak to the noise on the bottom floor that some... More

We often stay in budget motels for the value and we realize that we are not getting "The Ritz". We chose this location because of some good reviews and it was on the I-5 and we were in a rush to drive north. There is an agricultural smell on the outside (cow poo) but there is nothing this property can... More

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

I was recently traveling from Sacramento to LA and came across this motel right off of the I-5. The staff was great. 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...

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
