Stayed at this Hotel for only one night, decent price but did not feel safe as I'm by myself and a lot strange people hanging around. Would of stayed longer if not for that cause the clerk that check me was fast and efficient, and tried to accommodate my needs.

Had the misfortune of staying here in the midst of questionable other guests who were loud (all night), crack pipes on the floor above ours. Not clean enough for me - mopping the floors & dusting would have been a nice touch! Rude staff.. just a step up from tent camping in a back alley.

Spent only 1 night in the motel. We liked big and spacious rooms, swimming pool and friendly receptionist. The location is quite remote but there are still many restaurants and shopping possibilities. Very reasonable price.

There were questionable people hanging around and staying there. A young woman a few doors down from us was arrested. Coffee is weak and tasteless but they offer real half and half. Laundry is $1.50 for a wash and dry, even though labeled $1.25. But front office will only give change up to $2.00. Vending machines with snacks and drinks... More

This motel has an ideal location. It is within walking distance of several good restaurants and Arden Fair Mall and Cal Expo is a very short drive. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The pool looked to be well maintained and clean. There is a coin operated laundry available. Our room was fairly... More

Not on freeway but very close.Rooms are larger than most Motel 6's-used to be Vagabond Inn, I think. King room included dresser, 2 night stands, large table and chair, refrigerator and small microwave.Towels weren't the plushest, pillows not too firm... More

While my usual hotels were booked, this Motel 6 fit our needs for a one night stay while we visited the Cal Horse Expo. Unfortunately, the pool and hot tub were closed for repairs and it was a really hot day. This is the largest Motel 6 I have seen. The rooms were clean and comfortable. All-in-all, a good deal...

Overall this property was better than most Motel 6's.....I believe it was originally a different motel. The staff was nice and friendly.. of course the problem was there wasn't even an alarm clock in the room ..and the towels were like drying on a brillow pad..really rough and extremely tiny..soap wouldn't even lather..both the hot tub and pool were closed...
