We checked in very late at night. They had a security guard in the parking area for safety issues and to make sure that we were staying at this hotel because there are at least two hotels from the same parking area. I knew that our car would probably be safer due to him there, but usually means they've had... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to SF. While the rooms are a little dated, it served the purpose of a place to stay for the night. It's right off of the highway too, so it was easy to get to. The rooms could be cleaner and the carpet definitely needs replaced, but the staff was friendly.... More

I lived in here for a day. Location is good. There are stains on the carpet but doesn't really bothered me as I was there for single night only. Shower was making little noise. Good room in low price.

We waited outside the office for nearly half hour while both staff members were off doing whatever. When they did arrive back they sat in the car smoking while we waited to check in, after a five hour drive. Once we got to the window the smell was obviously not cigarette smoke. We checked in and made our way to... More

Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $30-$40 and stay at the Hampton across the parking lot. We chose this place because we were only in town for one night and wanted to save money. We paid $80 for a room that reeked of smoke. Cigarette burns in the carpet. Broken lights, and stained sheets and blanket. Bed extremely... More

The place looks like a regular motel like any other offering double rooms for ~55$. Unfortunately, there are many issues that disqualify this hotel for anyone: -Wifi costs extra, which would be ok, if the coupon they give you worked for more than one device (in a double room?!) and also is ridiculously slow. -No shampoo in the room -Old...

Using a hotel coupon we got a great rate at this hotel. The rooms are modest and basic, but very clean. Helpful staff. Small town, but friendly. Its claim to fame is the fact that it's the home of famous author, John Steinbeck.

This establishment should be ashamed of itself. A room was booked for me here due to proximity to the location of a conference for work. Upon my arrival, I noted police in the parking lot. I was then given a room at the back of the hotel. On my way to my room, I saw multiple prostitutes and pimps roaming... More
