Arrived at this hotel very late and tired. Clerk was friendly and efficient checking me into a room and accommodated every need. Ro was clean and remodeled. They even had breakfast which was included in my price of the room. If I'm ever train on the interstate again, I will be stopping here for my stayover

I want to thank the staff and ownership of this property for all the great changes! The room had been renovated completely. New hardwood floors, new bedding and mattress/box springs, refrigerator, bathroom update, paint, and flat screen! Great job! The rate was around 50 dollars with tax.

I booked a room for my daughter and husband. I had a concern before I booked the room. I called and Jackie answered the phone. I have NEVER in my 63 years experienced such an accommodating person. Jackie listened to my concern and had a solution instantly. Her customer service skills are out of this world!! This is my first... More

Quick check-in, comfortable beds, large bathroom. Large size parking and breakfast included in the price. What is true only waffles and coffee, but good and that. We highly recommend, if you are tired on the road.

This hotel is on the I-5. It is clearly a place to stop and rest from traveling for the night. Very affordable and hospitable. I was impressed with the room. Nothing fancy, but it was clean, comfortable, and had a microwave and refrigerator. I was in town to ride my bike, so I just needed a clean, safe place to... More

I arrived at the hotel after 2 am, so I was very tired. The clerk gave me a satisfying rate and guaranteed a quiet room. I slept like a baby it was quite peaceful that night. I enjoyed the wood floors and comfortable Cal king bed. I was very pleased with my stay.

They have recently remodeled and are not quite finished, I think. The laminate floors were a nice change and the bed was comfortable. We felt like there should be a lamp of some sort on the desk and perhaps another chair---either a desk chair or an arm chair. Our bathroom had NO hot water at all, sink or tub, so... More

Cheap price for a double queen room. Clean and convenient, got free breakfast in the morning w/ a waffle machine . Comes with a fridge and micro wave. Spacious room and large beds. Would have been even better if more outlets were available
