The staff at this location really make the difference! At check-in, they were friendly and fast, and all other staff we encountered were responsive to requests and very friendly. The hotel is kept up well, everything was clean. For the price I paid I was very happy Overall, this was a very good experience, and I would definitely recommend staying... More

What a pleasant surprise. Looks like a seedy SRO from the street. Inside, big comfy (very firm) bed, lovely little renovated bathroom, nice paint job, working fridge, and robust wifi. Clean!! And attentive staff. We walked an hour into town and had a really good repast and beer at La Tapatio restaurant. A real gem.

Saturday very early I got up and went to find coffee and came back around 7 am? the car was directly in front of our room. I left the car unlocked with my Garmin GPS on the seat. I went in to...

Its a small motel that is extremely clean, the rooms are the size that you will need. Please don't expect a huge room that you would get at the sheraton. If you want that go there, but you will be missing out on the friendly service and amazing owners. I did go to this hotel for Coachella and the owners... More

Friendly staff, nice comfortable room. Asked for no smoking room but there were 2 ashtrays and ashes in the nightstand drawer. Beware if you have children - there was no TV channel list and when we turned on TV the screen was full of naked men and women in an orgy on lots of beds with closeups of their private... More

We booked for 2 nights into this hotel in January. We were given a dinky room. It was clean and the bathroom was very nice but it was extremely small for the price. My husband complained and we were given a bigger room automatically. The heater had to be turned on to cold for 20 minutes before the heat could... More

The rooms are much better than one would expect given the location and type of motel. Nothing fancy, just not dinged up, dirty, and dilapidated. Niceties include a microwave, flat screen TV, and free WiFi. The woman one duty was quite friendly. Two things; the beds are hard and the heating / cooling unit is noisy. To be fair, the... More

I loved my stay here. The whole place is ground floor, which makes it look older - like something out of a road movie. The sign has some letters falling off. The chairs at the pool (cool, deep) are kinda piled in a corner. But wow, the rooms are great. Plenty of hot water, new bathrooms, firm mattresses, comfortable sheets,... More

When you pull up you see an older looking motel and wonder. However thr rooms have been updated very nicely. The floors are lamate in the room and a very pretty white tile has been used in the bathroom. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bed is firm. The TV is a HD flat screen. There is a hair...

What a great find. We stayed here on one of the busiest weekends of the year, and the staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The room had recently been renovated, and it was very clean. The location was convenient for the horse show, also.
