This is not a good place to stay. There's a Super 8 across the street which is cheaper and a hell of a lot nicer. They boasted that the rooms were recently renovated - it was obvious that it had been done on the cheap. There were cockroaches in the room and a harley davidson workshop next door. I wouldn't...

First of all, when you book online the pictures look nothing like the actual "establishment". It is a dilapidated dirty building with rickety old stairs I was afraid to climb up to even get to our room. Once inside, the broken stained mismatched furniture is a far cry from the tranquil spa-like environment depicted in the images on the website.... More

The room was clean other than the walls, which were the dust was quite obvious given the dark colors they were painted. No one had been in the room for a few days, so it hadn't been cleaned anew immediately before I booked it. Had I been, I would have gone elsewhere. I later discovered, when I couldn't get a... More

We booked this motel off priceline and the photos we saw were nothing like it was in real life. We were there for my daughters basketball tournament and due to the tournament we were unable to find another room. Aside from the construction and very odd people hanging around when my child went to take a shower the whole faucette... More

I booked this location as it was close to the Santa Anita Race Course where I was going to attend the Breeder's Cup races. The motel filled up over that weekend with others coming for the same event. Renovations are still ongoing, but most rooms have been redone and the ones I was in were newly done, clean and spacious.... More

Do not stay in this hotel unless you want to hear the renovation during the day and prostitution during the night. I stayed there over the Labor Day holiday and recently was treated to a demolition of the other wing of the motel starting on the Tuesday after Labor Day. The parking lot was filled with a demolition dump truck... More

I had been to this motel a couple days back and i loved it! The staff was extremely friendly and the location was great. Rooms have everything you need and the price was well worth the money. Whenever I'm back to this town I would stay again. i recommend this motel to anyone! Loved it!

The pictures are the bad opposite of how it actually looks. It is really run down and it has alot of homeless traffic going through. We made last minute reservations here because it was cheap, looked clean and most motels were already booked. It says you get free Internet but you don't, not a big deal. The problem is when... More

I stumbled upon this motel, stayed for a night, continued my travels and returned to it again upon coming back to L.A. The owners told me the motel was recently remodeled and had just re-opened, they sure did a nice job. The rooms are basic like you would expect from any motel, but are very clean, have a nice decor,... More
