The room was clean, nice large black and white prints on the wall from local area. Nice touch. Staff was friendly and helpful. The Matrango Museum gave us an additional 10% off coupon. Which they accepted. We stayed two nights and would do it again for the location and price.

I was suprised about this room. I thought it would be a standard chain motel room but it was a nice, colourful, modern, bright and clean room with two beautiful large black and white pictures of Mobius Arch (in the Alabama Hills) at the wall. Beds were great, bathroom was clean, lovely lady Lucy at the front desk. I would... More

We checked in to this hotel walk into the room and it was suppose to be remodeled, not at all. It smelt like something died in the room. We spread perfume to mask the smell and give the place the benefit of doubt. Then we started seeing baby flies in the room. Ended up killing 10 of them. After an... More

Pretty good for the price. Seeing the room and overall property, I knew it wasn't originally a Super 8. We saw the place fills up even on week nights. The TV set is what I expected, but they had both HBO and Showtime, not one or the other like most cheap motels. My wife has me always reserved top floor... More

We think this has recently become part of the super chain as there was a sign in the lobby. Might of been called 'vagabonds'? So it possibly hasn't been updated yet. Still has an ancient CRT TV which shows how old it is. Room was clean and well kept and shower was good. Main issue was noise. Our upstairs neighbours... More

Quite surprised at the low rate; great service and cleanliness of room. Bathroom was newly tiled, painted and CLEAN. Beds could have been firmer but for this price it worked! Cold cereal, toast, coffee and juice then on our way. See you again.
