When we arrived the key card did not work. So anytime we needed to get into the room we had to go to the office to have them let us in. They said they would have it fixed the next day and didn't. Room was very musty smelling. I guess if your only sleeping there it isn't bad.

This establishment is infested with bed bugs. We found out the following morning with children having bites all over them and finding the bugs in the bed. Pictures were taken and a complaint was made with at first a 10% discount being offered. We had to incur the cost of cleaning everything we own, and fumigating our vehicle because we... More

My family (Mom and Sister, nieces and nephew) stayed here - 8/8/15. Bed bugs bit my niece on her arms, waste and shoulders. So much that there was blood on the sheets (see pics). When brought to the housekeeping lady's attention, she did not seem to concerned. Basically said talk to the front desk. Management extended a 10% discount for... More

AVOID! THE WORST! Terrible, terrible terrible! Room reeked of dog and cat urine. The carpet was disgusting. The bathroom was disgusting, moldy. You can find a better room in the slums of TJ. The health department should close this dump down. How anyone can give this hole a decent review baffles me.

This motel has deteriorated and is no longer a place where our family will stay. Between nonfunctioning lights, dirty carpets, poor cleaning, noisy neighbors and traffic our stay of two nights was too long.

This place looked as though a murder took place in the room and that only crackheads stay there. The furniture was sunk in. The curtains had to cigarette burns. I didnt ask for smoking but thats all they had. The bed sheets still had hair from a previous patron.

Reception was unwilling to let us check in even 30 min early so we sat in the car for an hour. Rooms were below average cleanliness. Overall not very satisfied with service or quality. Was very satisfied with my last Vagabond stay in Long Beach

I read a bunch of the reviews and was VERY apprehensive until I called every hotel and realized we had vacationed during Spring Break and that everything was booked. Ok...So this isn't The Ritz....It is a budget motel....We saw two small bugs that were ***NOT*** roaches, ticks or bedbugs...rather just a couple that buzz around outside lights. It was old... More
