Clean and pleasant place. Nice, comfortable rooms. Very good beds and pillows. I wish all my motel stays were this positive! I'd stay here again! (Pool scene from National Lampoon's Vacation was filmed here)

I reserve several rooms for my daughter’s wedding guests. It was very pleasant experience starting with negotiating the contract. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The price was right. As for the rooms and the hotel itself, I found them clean and comfortable enough. The bed was clean. I must also mention the courtyard, which was beautifully set up... More

Hard mattress, outside entry, a quarter of a mile walk to the room and a CRAPPY big 1980s TV. The room was SUPER HOT when I got there and took an hour to cool down. The desk clerk was irritating and slow. I would NEVER stay there again!!!

Beds were comfortable. The shower fixtures were outdated and I had to stand RIGHT under shower head to reach the water. Too cold to enjoy the pool, but the courtyard near it was nice. Breakfast was good. The microwave we "rented" was old and dirty, and the laundry facilities were hideous and in a part of the hotel that did... More

I picked this hotel to stay in for a Disneyland vacation. I chose this hotel even though it was a bit further away because the price was better than most and they offered free wi-fi. The wi-fi was very important for our stay, but it did not work. I called the front desk 3 times during my stay and told... More

This modern, up to date hotel is within eye view of the southbound Santa Ana Freeway/Interstate 5 in Norwalk at the Rosecrans exit, which is how it was found. At the time of this review (February, 2014) the freeway is undergoing widening and reconstruction, including the on and off ramps. The construction will last into 2016 according to Caltrans.

When I walked into the room the smell hit me, it smelled like it was not properly clean and someone had been smoking in the no smoking room. The carpet was stained and looked very old, there were burn marks in the bedding, the shower head was detached from the wall and the bathroom had little bugs...disgusting!!!! I had to... More

The motel was challenging to get to with construction going on around it. The front desk clerk was nice, but I was put off by seeing an undercover cop driving around the parking lot. There was only one big bath towel, hand towel, and wash cloth which was fine as I was alone, but this would have been an inconvenience... More
