I had been travelling for a week in budget type accommodation and was surprised at the quality of rooms, service and additional's like breakfast and WIFI at a great rate for the area. Rooms are fitted out with the best of everything and cleanliness is 2nd to none. Cannot speak highly enough of the experience and you won't be disappointed.

I did not expect much but what a great surprise. Very clean (bathroom smelled like bleach; my favorite thing in a hotel bathroom!), refrigerator and microwave in the room, air conditioner was quiet, more than just a continental breakfast with cereal, yogurt, and waffles. Newly redecorated. Free wifi. Some noise because it's next to the freeway, but we only heard... More

This motel has been newly renovated and was clean and very basic. The noise from the road and freeway made it very difficult to sleep and there were guests talking outside our room until 1:30 am.

Nicer than expected. Clean and recently renovated. If the basic breakfast isn't enough for you, the McD's is a stone's throw away! Super easy 101 access!
