We research online and decided to try this motel. SURPRISES: Simple and clean rooms. No damp smell and well serviced. Free Wi-fi! Location is really good too. Easy drive onto freeways and attractions. I would recommend this motel if you are after a clean and well priced room.

Never, Ever! At check in (around midnight), the sign in the window said 'no drugs or prostitution'... Great, first clue. To get to the stairs up to the rooms, you have to walk thru a parking lot which was inhabited by multiple gatherings of some vulgar people... After being approached for money and someone asking if I wanted to "party",... More

There was no lobby you could enter just a window with bars around it. The women at the window was sweet but the manger was suck a jerk.. When I... More

I'm here with my family, after a day in universal studios, I'm a customer with Hotwire, but now I think, I won't be anymore, since they don't let you see which is the hotel name, until you pay first, they told me this motel is excellent and 2 starts, this crap is not even 1/2, is 11:00 pm and I'm...

Hotel was old and small. Rooms were dull and grungy. Parking is a joke, small one lane in and out. Beds were firm. Only good thing was the bathroom, flat screen, and it was quiet. No lobby for office just a barred up window to walk up to. This place makes motel 6 look good. I might stay here again... More

Nice tile work in bathroom. Freshly painted. Bed is hardest I've ever slept on; amost like floor. Situated ~200 feet from highway, so it's quite loud. Parking spot was so cramped I had to go back and forth 6 times to get out.
