Place is clean; close to I-8 East and West. Desert community which was broiling on the summer day we got there. Polite Front Desk woman. We were given an "upgrade", which got us 2 queen beds, which were very nice mattresses. Pillows were old, lumpy. Bathroom fan very loud; shower head too low. Continental breakfast was 'ok.'

Overall, this hotel is pretty average for El Centro. Don't expect a high quality resort, it's a motel in the Imperial Valley. That said, the room was clean and the air conditioning worked. That's 2 of the 3 things I needed on this stay. Unfortunately, the third, internet connectivity, was a huge bust. The internet at this place is barely... More

The room was beautiful, the air conditioner worked great, the staff was pleasant. However, we left the hotel for a graduation ceremony and came back to THOUSANDS of ants on our sink and around our luggage. We had to buy RAID to get them out the sink & bathroom.

This place was absolutely perfect - the room was a suite and was well apointed, clean and spacious. The owners are delightful and I had a very pleasant night at the hotel. I would highly recommend it.

Great place for the price! The room we had was clean and comfortable . The family operators were very courteous and pleasant. Several choices for restaurants just down the street. Small bathroom, but a good shower. The tv was ok - but could not get CBS, ABC or NBC. Several others including HBO were ok. Would stay there again because... More
