We recently stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night because our destination - Mariposa - was totally sold out. Definitely one of the better 'express' type hotels. Room was spacious and extremely clean, the mattress relatively new and quite comfortable, and the staff friendly and accommodating. Would recommend it.

I have been away from home in this motel for 100 nights. Like most people I would rather be home every night but I have to work. The staff makes it a little easier with easy fast check in, the rooms are clean and quiet. Mornings are met with a great breakfast by Maria. And if leaving early, stop by... More

We stayed here for a couple of days in June. The staff was very nice. The room was nice and clean. Everyone I passed in the hall was friendly. I enjoyed talking with all of the staff. They have a little store near the front desk and you charge snacks and other small items to you room. That was very... More

The area didn't seem the greatest but there weren't any problems. I was very pleased with the hotel, it's amenities, the breakfast and the room. Staff could have been initially friendlier but I would indeed stay here again.

The hotel was a good location for our team down the street form the fields. Nice pool, breakfast room. Rooms were clean and well stocked. The coffee was just ok, the breakfast menu needs to be improved. The staff were very helpful.

We stayed in this hotel for four nights and were really happy about it. Every staff member we met were super nice and willing to help. We booked a standard king-bed room and they upgraded us to a king-bed suit because we are iHG platinum members. We usually leave some tips for housekeepers and they just take the money. The... More
