Very standard accommodation but clean and with all the amenities you'd expect in a hotel room. Overall a good experience for a budget hotel. Parking is limited at the front of the hotel but extra parking is available to the rear. Could do with being redecorated but this didn't take anything away from the stay.

The rooms here are always clean and well stocked. Also, the owners are very friendly people who try to accommodate and assist you with getting a room even when they are booked and busy, by checking which patrons are leaving and which ones are staying. Lastly, the owners keep the place safe with no signs of riff raff or questionable... More

This is an olde motel but well kept. Rooms are nothing fancy but they are clean, bed was comfortable. there is an Amtrak type of train that flys by often, but the building is well insulated and unless you have exceptional hearing, you probably won't notice. Staff was friendly. Lotd of good food in the area, New York Pizza, The... More

The owners are terrible! Very racist towards blacks, not enough parking for the rooms. The continental breakfast is cereal and coffee. Not worth the money and the hassle. Bath tub broken, you only get 2 towels per room. The mattress is stained in blood...really not a good hotel!!!

When I booked my room I requested an upstairs room, When I arrived to check in I was told there were none. When I said I was going to cancel my reservation I was given a room that was upstairs. Amazing that in a split second one came available. When I went to my room I turned around went to... More

Not the worst, but certainly memorable in the negative sense. Suspend any desire you may have for even a mediocre Customer Service experience; these two words are not in their vocabulary. For that matter there may not be any other two words in their vocab either. Room was clean-'ish', but the gray sheets (which were probably white at some point)... More

As mentioned on other reviews, it is definitely a no-frills hotel but the managers were very welcoming and caring about my stay there. Everything worked fine in the room and actually was very quiet considering the noise level from El Camino Real. Bed was comfortable and shower worked fine, wifi worked well. I would stay here again, rates are good... More
