I stayed here for one night after attending a friends wedding in Newport beach and was not able to drive home. Just wanted somewhere to lay my head and wouldn't be too costly.

Not good, not bad. No bugs, no problems with the WiFi, the breakfast was OK (coffee and donuts, the coffee was OK, not good and not bad). The room was cold at night. The bathroom and shower were tiny and old but still working. :)

The motel was cockroach infested, noisy and dirty. When I reported to managment their attitude was 'it happens sometimes'. I have never had such a horrible and disturbing experience staying at a hotel/motel. I certainly did not expect this for a motel in Costa Mesa!!!
