Old school U-shaped motor hotel, family run from the looks of it with nice plant assortment outside of the office area. Budget priced with minimal amenities but a good place to crash while passing through the central valley. If you have been to India before the room interior will remind you of an Indian guesthouse. Bed is fine, bathroom fine.... More

On our way back from Arizona we decided to stay in Los Banos. We didn't have a reservation or a place in mind, but we prefer a hotel with direct parking/car access and we could see the economy inn met this criteria. The hotel has been renovated, but the bathroom (at least in our room) was older or original, but... More

Stopped here on the way north from Los Angels and where very pleasantly surprised. The motel is one of these old style motels, a u-shaped building around a parking lot. But the building is newly renovated and look very inviting. The room was very clean, and, never expected in accommodation for a whopping $55/night, an all granite well working shower.... More

We travel from the central coast of California to Sacramento almost every month.Occassionally we need an overnight stay somewhere at a half way point. The Economy Inn in Los Banos has proved very adventagious for our needs. The fact that it's such a great price and in a good location is wonderful for us, but the manager (Possibly the owner?)...

Arrived late in the afternoon after long drive from Nevada, so were a Christopher Walken. Found a very helpful & friendly manager & a very comfortable room in almost garden-like atmosphere (okay - plants & a fountain) all for $60. We'd stay again, not that we'd go to Los Baños a second time because there is nothing there really.

This property is located on a very busy street and even though my room was close to the entrance the street noise was minimal with the exception of passing trucks. The room was a bit small but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The parking lot was very tight but the grounds were well cared for and had lovely... More

First off, this review takes into account that all we wanted was a clean comfy place to sleep and shower while on a long road trip. We didn't want to pay extra for frills that we wouldn't use. The stars reflect our satisfaction of this hotel with that in mind. The stars are not meant to rate all the features... More

i stayed here overnight driving from northern california to los angeles. it was very clean and comfortable and served my purposes. i felt safe and the hotel itself actually has an artistic charm to it which is suprising for a roadside motel. i normally never stay in roadside motels but i did here based on the online reviews and it...

First and foremost...the owners are absolutely wonderful and their pleasantness and caring definitely translates directly to the quality and care of the rooms which are clean, cozy, comfortable and affordable. Luckily I found this gem by chance on one of my many trips to California. I will choose the Economy Inn whenever I'm traveling through and I highly recommend. D.... More
