At first we thought we heared some good reviews about Discovery Inn in another town. So we thought let's give it a try. The desk at the lobby is completely sealed with glass. After I asked why he made it this way, and I got an answer, he stepped through his door and gave me the keys. I think he... More

I stay in Modesto for work 5-6 nights per month and look for budget accommodations - somewhere clean to shower, sleep, and leave in the morning. The pool was nasty, the front desk staff paranoid, but all I wanted was a shower and a bed, so in I checked. Fell asleep on the bed as soon as I walked in... More

We booked this hotel ahead of time. When we arrived in our room, the smoke detector was ripped out of the wall, there were brown stains on the ceiling and carpet, other items were in terrible shape as well. The pool had garbage floating in it....filthy and unsafe place to stay. We immediately left and asked for a refund. So... More

Advantages- cheap, convenient. Basics were OK-- shower, toilet, bed. Disadvantages-- non smoking room smelled badly of old smoke and mildew. Carpet very dirty, wifi very slow.

This is an older motel that has been somewhat updated. The room was clean enough for most people, for the price. Our king room had only two bath towels and one hand towel. The front desk said they don't use wash clothes, so they gave us extra hand towels. The furniture was fine and the mattress was very good. The... More

Thank you for reading this, I'm not one to usually take the time to complain, but for this I'm making an exception. I arrived at the Knights Inn Modesto and found it to be a very old, run down looking building. The lobby has cob webs hanging from the ceiling and a musty smell that is very noticeable. The lady...
