Our group appreciates bing able to park our motorcycles near our rooms. Plenty of outlets in the rooms to charge our numerous electronics used on motorcycles. Staff provided towels to wipe down our bikes after a rain strom. Staff was friendly and suggested a great place to have dinner within walking distance. Overall... great stay!

If you're looking for a clean room and comfortable bed, then this is the hotel for you. If you will be bothered by late-night partying around the fire pit and parking lot noise (each room's entrance is right off the parking lot), then look elsewhere. Also, at check in I was required to give all my contact information not just... More

Also has bikes on premises. Close to restaurants, shopping, a few minutes from downtown and close to highways. Every staff member that I encountered was very friendly and helpful. The service...

Generous large towels, comfortable bed linens, fruit and water in every room daily merited this older hotel four stars. The front desk staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We did not like the first room and were given a far nicer room. The patio furniture is a bit ratty but aside from that it is clear that... More

I love this motel. Quaint, clean and homey. Located across from a nice Mall with restaurants and shops. Also very safe feeling and located close to freeway for access. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The front desk service was good. The rooms are very expensive and in desperate need of update. The rooms have a very tired outdated look. Green carpets, yellow furniture, whitish drapes you get the picture. Our view of the mountains was nice.
