The room was clean and quiet, beds comfortable. Lighting better than most at similar cost. Everything worked but the wifi. Router needed reset and we notified office, but it didn't get done before we gave up. Desk clerk friendly and helpful. Breakfast minimal but adequate, especially for the price.

We heard what you said regarding waiting it to be reset, we will take steps to make sure the desk clerk has this training.... More

Debated whether it's technically possible for a budget motel to rate five "stars" but we had absolutely no complaints and a good stay there this weekend when my sister and I were down for a big class reunion in a nearby town. The owners are extremely nice and hospitable (and coincidentally had owned a motel in the city we live... More

Nice place, price is right and clean. The good reviews we read prior to coming here were pretty accurate. We had a king size bed, LCD TV, bathroom was clean with fairly nice looking tile although some of the grout in the shower was missing. The bed was pretty comfy, definitely enough room for the two of us. Burgers &... More

We needed to get away. I wanted to work and draw, he wanted to Metal Detect in the Valley. The staff was very courteous and helpful, the room was extremely clean. Not fancy, but we weren't looking for fancy. Everything worked, the price very reasonable. THANK YOU!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the crown motel recently. It's been updated so nicely, to make the stay even better. Such a great place. I would recommend this hotel to anyone passing through el centro, by far the best option in the city. Good continental breakfast and comfortable bed. Every room had a microwave, a fridge, and a tv.... More

It is definitely not the Ritz, nor should that be expected for the incredibly low rates. That said, the hotel rooms are very clean inside: clean carpet, clean, comfortable beds, my room had a remodeled bathroom with very nice tile and a tub, and everything was in great working order. Cable worked fine, and more importantly, although I was in... More

My husband and I stayed two grueling nights at this motel. His company paid for it. Well I paid for it in bed bites. Not only was I severely bitten and I have the pictures to prove it. Their continental breakfast consist of stale moldy bear claws and orange juice that is so watered down that it's orange colored warm... More

This was a great deal - they only charged me $40 plus 10% tax for a total of $44, and motels close to Interstate 8 had nothing under $55.99 plus tax. The room was very clean, in fact immaculate, although from the outside the building looks old and drab, the room inside was modern and clean. The room had an... More
