We paid $140.40 for 2 nights, including taxes. The breakfast was poor, so we ate at a restaurant across the street which added $33.68 for a total of $174.08 The motel is old and it shows. The room was small, but clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was quite small and old. The housekeeping woman was helpful in... More

sorry if you found the price higher than expected but providing a good room does get expensive; nevertheless, you were given a good discount rate. More

Great value for the location. Only hotel within walking distance of downtown. Friendly and helpful office staff. Basic but clean room. Downside: slow internet and really bad coffee. We also never saw the housekeeping staff (got towels from the front desk). But, I would definitely stay here again.

The main positive for this motel is the price and the good customer service from management. The internet connection remained non-existent, the room was not ready for check-in 2 hours passed time, the substitute room had no remodeling so the shower was black with mold and both shower head and sink fixture leaked continuously. Finally, the continental breakfast was laughable.

Again we choose for this hotel -third time-, with my husband, sister and brother in law. We shared the huge studio no 123, where we had each our own room. The ample kitchen we left unused this time.

We actually prefer well-kept small motels over the big commercial jobs, so when visiting family we selected this one (we have had good experiences with other America's Best Value Motels). The only good we can say is that the management was friendly. But.... We booked on-line. After one night we decided this wasn't for us. We were told they wouldn't... More

we are extremely sorry. this is not what we expected too, cause we do go all out to make sure rooms are clean and free of any insects and bugs. many guests have stayed before and after in that room but have not heard of any similar problem. sorry once again. More

I lived near downtown Livermore for fifteen years and never took a second look at this place, until we needed a place to stay for one night recently. It is the only hotel located downtown so you have walking access (especially nice after long drives) to restaurants, brewpubs, movie theaters, etc. Starbucks, Noah's bagels, and a drugstore across the street...

I spent 3 nites at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. It is within walking distance of the main shopping and entertainment area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room had a great Tv and VCR. Parking is great and the area is quiet!

I'm a senior adult. As a child I traveled with my parents over old Rt. 66, before Pres. Eisenhower created our Nation's Highway System. This motel conveyed many of the appearances of the motels of those past years. Unfortunately, I believe Managements efforts to keep costs down is reflected in not employing enough help. One maid cannot possibly clean almost... More

DON'T STAY HERE!!! Just got home from staying here last night. I'm a long time Livermore resident and needed to stay somewhere while work was being done on my home here. All I can say is the city of Livermore should shut this dump down. Every complaint by previous reviewers is true. The bathroom was disgusting, mold and mildew everywhere.... More
