Not much to look at out the window either. The staff is very friendly and keep the place up. The room was average. The... More

We came in late. Tired and another hotel had screwed up our reservation. We were greeted very professional and we were very satisfied and treated very very nice. We would totally recondite this hotel.

Great stay with very friendly desk staff. So nice to see a family run business where multiple generations are willingly and cheerfully working to support it. The room was clean and had just what we needed. The motel is right off the 5, so there's is some traffic noise. We knew that going in, so it didn't bother us. Great... More

There was horrible road noise since the hotel is right next to the I-5 highway. And the door did not block noise. The hotel had a Denny's & Del Taco nearby. The hotel is reasonably close to legoland (10 minutes driving). The beds were comfortable. The AC was not on when we arrived & we didn't use it. However, it... More
