I stayed here on March 5, 2015 and the hotel was easy to find. I booked it through the hotel and got a good price with two beds. The room came with microwave, fridge and coffee maker plus free breakfast in the morning :)

The television was grainy and unclear. The wall paper was peeling from the bathroom wall and needs a new toilet seat. The lock on door was broken so I felt unsafe.Stains on furniture.

There are cheap hotel deals because it is a bargain price and there are cheap hotel deals because no one in their right mind would pay more ... And then there is this which doesn't even qualify.

This hotel was the best I've stayed in thus far.When we arrived early our room we were assigned to wasn't ready so the staff assigned another room that was ready to us. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, and the best bed ever. Like sleeping on a cloud. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

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.

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.
