Left Camarillo in the evening headed up north to pay respects to a friend. Got tired on the way and stopped here. It was dark so I decided not to look at anything really hard...only enough to make sure where we lay down to sleep was clean. The lady at the counter, Samantha, was so nice and helpful. She gave...

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was, we stayed in room 117 which was a very large room with a king size bed, the floors were wooden and very clean, and i loved the color of paint used on the walls.

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.

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.
