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

I have stayed at this hotel several times while traveling back and forth through California. The first time the Grapevine was snowed in and we needed a last minute place to stay until it opened. we were able to get a room and a late dinner at a local restaurant then a late check out the next day. The rooms... 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

con- Had an attic access above the bed, and a door leading to another room with no knob. The Ac unit was plugged in with a piece of metal covering the hole, as well as having several other holes from relocated plugs in walls, the carpet was so bad I kept my shoes on, the shower had hair in it...

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
