Had a reservation at this hotel and was required to give a debit or credit card number to hold my name under and when I saw the place to see how disgusting it was I went to a different hotel to sleep at and tried cancelling my reservation here when I was told that there was a cancellation fee and...

Don't ever stay here, sleeping in your car would be a better option. A Cockroach and ants found in bed, gross shower, dirty carpets, door would not close properly, horrible smell. And one of the staff had the nerve to accuse me of not telling about my dog and tried to charge me more and when I asked to see... More

low price but a good overnight. the bed was comfortable and the shower was terrific. my room had refrigerator and microwave but no coffee. staff was friendly but hard to find at times, felt like owner was doing many jobs. no breakfast. in the morning it was "drop the key in the slot and go" situation.

The owners were very friendly and quick to accommodate our needs however the room was very rough around the edges - cobwebs, dirty carpet around doorjambs, soap scum in bathtub - and smelled stale. I inquired about their advertised continental breakfast the night that we arrived and was told that breakfast would be put out in the morning (fruit, muffins,... More

These guys were absolute saints in helping me sort out a pretty ridiculous situation where I booked myself twice for the same room. They must have taken ten calls from the booking agency and twice as many visits from me to the front desk. The room was plenty comfy and had a nice big closet to store things in. The... More

This is a cheap morel so could not expect high quality. The rooms are not clean and the water from the shower would not drain away. They gave us the key to the unoccupied room next so we could use the shower. I am unable to understand why a business can be left to run down.

In December of every year for three years I have used this hotel. The room we usually stay in is a bedroom with a king size bed, microwave and mini-fridge with plenty of storage otherwise. The manager is very accommodating, and the cleaning was done regularly - no complaints! When we visit, we're treated like friends rather than simply customers.... More

My car broke down in El Centro and I need a cheap place to stay while it was being repaired. I walked a few blocks from the repair shop and found a street with a bunch of cheap motels..This one appeared to be the "finest" in the land...It was advertised at $49.99 a night but with my Military I.D. the...
