I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is older, but in pretty good shape. There is a Dennys and a bar in the hotel. The checkin was fast and efficient. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay.

This hotel could be great, again. It was as a Holiday Inn, very good as a Ramada Inn. If the owner/manager cared as much about this property and his great staff, as he apparently does about his classic mustang, this property maintenance would match its nice alluring front lobby. My first room carpet was so worn-ripped its exposed tack strip... More

Small room but quite adequate. Had a refrigerator and fast WIFI. Very comfortable king bed with good quality bed linens. Good hot complimentary breakfast. Soundproofing between rooms is good. When we returned after dinner we could hear a small child crying next door but once inside, we could no longer hear any noise from the neighbours. One bath towel was... More

The room was clean and well furnished. Stayed 2 nights. Was on the second floor, of the second building, my room faced the 3rd building. Things I liked; the fridge worked great, as did the coffeemaker. Didn't use the microwave. My room was small, but I didn't need a lot of room anyway. There is a bar and a Denny's... More

Convenient from the Highway 8. Ok price, but didn't notify me of the extra Hotel Tax. Room seemed clean, and got some good use from the in-room coffee maker. The pillows, oh the big soft and so many good pillows. Large flat screen TV was nice, but was crooked on it's base and rocked threateningly when touched. Shower fixtures were... More

Stayed at the Calrion in El Centro on business, big mistake. I should have known something was up when it was the only place in town that had rooms available. Small rooms, NO hot water, and bugs crawling in my bed (pincher bugs). Not impressed and I won't stay there again. I will say that the staff was nice and... More

We stayed here and were very happy the room was large, centrally located, close to the pool and breakfast room, a good business centre, no on site guest laundry, staff very friendly and helpful. Good choice for breakfast. The only downside is that the vanity area is quite small, would definitely stay there again.

We are not picky people by any means, but this place is truly a run down, awful place to stay. The only thing that saved them was the comfort of the beds. We had gross, run-down bathrooms, stained duvet covers, noise from the next room, an earring on the floor which lead us to believe that it wasn't vacuumed properly,... More
