All three visits had the same issues. The place is being updated but the work in the rooms looks sloppy. All three rooms did not look vacuumed but maybe it's the vacuum not the maid. The room smells strong of perfume and the fitted sheet under the one you sleep on had blood or something on it meaning they changed... More

I-5 had construction so ended staying here, which was a great surprise. It is located in a truck stop area. The hotel was being remodeled, had truck parking, and really nicely done. There was breakfest, which was good.

Good place to stop for the night, nice staff, clean room, comfy beds, everything worked, free parking, hot eggs & coffee for breakfast. (you gotta be kidding, you won't accept this review because it is too short? so now I have to add meaningless words to a good review; amazing)

Hotel is undergoing renovation, so lots of materials stacked up out front. At this phase, door locks are new, but carpets are still old. Staff is nice, but something went seriously wrong with housekeeping that night. Transmission goes out in the middle of nowhere, at midnight, so I barely pull into exit 36B on Interstate 5. At 2:30 a.m., Road... More

Sorry you experienced the inconvenience of the rooms not being cleaned by housekeeping. We investigated this situation and there was miscommunication with the desk clerk and the housekeeper. We have addressed this problem with all the staff to ensure this does not occur again. Again, we apologize and hope we have solved this issue. Sincerely, Sharon Bates More

I asked for non-smoking twice. My first room had a fan on the floor drying wet carpets with chairs on the bed. It smelled horribly of cigarette smoke. The second attempt I received another "smokers" room that smelled even worse with two sopping wet rags on the floor in the corner. I pulled my sheets back to find a small... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have been renting our non-smoking rooms with no complaints of cigarette smell. As for the spider, we have Terminex out monthly who sprays outside of the entire building, around the perimeter of the motel grounds and he sprays inside of five rooms,which we alternate.

It's on the I-5 corridor, convenient stopover for a long drive from anywhere, and about 2.5 hrs S of the Bay Area. They are updating things, so some of the reviews that complain about it have been heard. It is quite clean, quiet, and comfortable with plenty of room. Wish I'd brought shorts or a swim suit, pool looks refreshing.... More

One is always wary of interstate hotels int he middle of nowhere, but this was a great place to stay. I was working over night in the area and this was a quiet, clean, comfortable place. I would come back.

This Hotel is off the beaten path for sure. Off of the 5 Freeway at the "Panoche" exit. I'm always hesitant to stay in these smaller hotels like this one but I have to say I was a bit surprised.

This hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable. The furnishings and interior were worn but are planned to be soon replaced. The restaurant next door was okay, basic but had interesting decor. The breakfast was good with many choices including waffles, hot sandwiches, eggs and potatoes.

Glad you enjoyed our breakfast, we always have our scrambled eggs but we alternate our other hot breakfast item with potatoes w/diced ham, pork sausage patties and biscuits & gravy w/sausage bits. We recently are offering a few Gluten Free items upon request. We hope to see you soon! Cordially, Sharon Bates Manager More
