My first impression given the bullet-proof plexiglass in the office and the near vacant parking lot was that I had made a grave mistake. The front desk was neither friendly or accommodating. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable and are quiet and clean. It is a basic hotel room without frills. No coffee maker in... More

The only questionable thing was Upon entering the room there were three very large stains on the carpet thus we kept our socks on whilst walking about. I decided to take a bath and Surprisingly it was of ample size not the small cheesy ones most motels feature. We had been to a couple of restaurants and had leftovers to... More

We stayed for 3 days. Friday through Sunday. Our second time staying here. Our room had a huge walk in shower. The room was clean. The service was excellent. It was very quiet. There was fresh coffee, juice, cereal, milk, fruit and muffins in the morning. Very relaxing. We will be staying here again.

I was a little turned off with the front desk staff. They weren't very welcoming nor friendly, borderline rude. This place strikes me as a " hook up " type motel. The price is right but don't expect any frills or thrills. Don't expect any hand towels in your room either because there are none. The room was clean. Although... More

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
