We are senior full time travelers on a budget. We liked this motel so well we spent an extra night. Great location, great staff. Highly recommend.

This was one of the worst hotel experiences of my life. The company I was doing work for pricelined this motel for me while I was doing work in Porterville. The motel is managed by an Indian family, and the son and mother were very nice and hospitable when we checked in. We stayed on the ground floor. The entire... More

To make matters worse, my brother paid the receptionist with a $100 bill and was ripped off! The receptionist said that she never got the money... More
