We just needed a bed to sleep on and this was perfect for that. The breakfeast was served late at 8am and there was only cereal and a cheap pastry. But for the price we paid ($59) it was worth it. It was right next to the highway so you could hear the cars going by so if you are... More

There have previously been some pretty bad reviews of this place, including the management. We stayed here in early August, 2014 and found the place to be perfectly priced and the manager, Mr. Peter Patel to be what you would expect and excellent manager to be. Due to poor planning on my part, we arrived a day before my reservations... More

If you are just staying for a night and not planning any time in the room, it's affordable. The room wasn't bad. It was clean, the showers had water pressure, and bed was ok. I did have problems connecting to the wifi, but didn't really mind. The hotel is off a freeway and is a little remote. Being near the... More

My sister and I traveled here to see the Steinbeck Museum (which was great!) but this motel was just horrible. The room wasn't clean (a used Q-tip sat next to the sink and a long black hair on the toilet), the phone didn't work, and the "breakfast" didn't start until 8:00 am. Maybe to save those pesky travelers from stopping... More

I have to say it wasn't bad. Yes the carpet was stained and I found a few hairs on the sheets. The linens were clean, I had plenty of towels, and there was a microwave and fridge that worked very well. The water pressure was great and my shower was hot. The bed was fairly comfortable as well. The ice... More

Larger, more attractive room than average for this class of motel. Non-smoking room smelled vaguely of smoke; I suspect it was a smoking room before it was declared smoke-free. Seemed sanitary. Wi-fi worked well. My shower worked fine. Noise from the highway is really annoying. To plug your computer in, you have to unplug either the main room light, the... More

Room was clean but the shower head was broken and leaked when I showered. It is rather loud since so close to freeway and walls are very thin so you hear your neighbors. Free continental breakfast is just cereal and bagged pastries. I didn't appreciate that the milk and orange juice are in gallons and cartons, who's to know if... More

I totally enjoyed my stay here. The management and staff were very kind and professional. The rooms were nice and clean plus the price was very reasonable. I will stay there again. It was a last minute thing and I was fortunate to get one of the last two rooms they had left. My friend loved the room and it... More

It says non smoke but the room smell like someone just smoked in, 3. Shower head is terrible. I am 5'6"... More
