There was a deposit that was not disclosed when I booked the room. A week later, I still have not have it refunded to my card. The radio/alarm clock did not work and they didnt have a wake up call as I had to work at 5am. A couple towels were dirty when I checked in.

I was looking for an economical stay for a few days in the Orange/Anaheim area and decided to stay at this location. The location is ideal in that it's adjacent to CA State Hwy 55, Katella and Tustin Ave, but very difficult to exit if wanting to head west. A very awkward location behind a gas station and adjacent to... More

Good value great location hard to find but well worth the money, Close to theme park and Freeway makes easy access to all areas of California access. Free breakfast is simple but effective just get up early enough to enjoy it.

This is a basic clean motel which meets what the budget traveler seeks: Clean sheets, nice and accommodating staff, modest towels, a safe, microwave, refrigerator, and basic breakfast offering, although we didn't eat it.

If you can sleep with the bright lights, and screaming people and kids, squealing tires. And the fact that to even pull in you have to drive thru a gas station. Then this is the place for you. From there let your imagine run with pictures of half used soap and wet facecloths laid around. I think I have made... More
