I was actually very impressed with this hotel. The staff was friendly, the grounds nicely done (looks like new landscaping). The room was spacious (single double room) and although sparsely furnished, everything was very clean...I was even surprised at how clean the bathroom was. And speaking of the bathroom....they even had SOFT toilet paper! Haha! That was definitely a bonus!... More

When we arrived, we found the room we were given had the door wide open and had not been cleaned. We were given another room right away. There was a lot of noise from people outside in the middle of the night, but this could be from the gaps in the door allowing noise through more than solid seal around... More

The first room we were given hadn't been cleaned yet, but the front desk guy quickly provided another room and brought us the key. The exterior seemed well kept with fresh paint, landscaping, and lights. Free parking, and CLOSE to a gas station. Free continental breakfast was impressive, included: cereals, toast,bagels, coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, hardboiled eggs, cheese, fruit, little... More

I was road tripping with my girlfriend, and we were looking everywhere for a place to sleep, after a nine hour drive from SoCal. After reading so many reviews, we luckily found this motel. What we liked most about our experience was that it was safe at night, and when we left early in the morning, there was a complimentary... More
