We were visiting family nearby, and were excited to find a motel that had three queen beds as an option. When we checked in, they had some trouble with our reservation (it was there, but " blank," but they did give us the same rate I was quoted when I made the reservation online. When we got to our ground... More

We were in the area to help my cousin move into her dorm. We needed a room after driving for several hours and arriving at the hotel we initially had reservations at only to find that it was very dirty and poorly kept. I searched and found that there were very few rooms available in the area. I called the... More

I went on Priceline and optioned for the "name your own price" way of doing it and this is the motel I got. It is somewhat rundown looking. Certainly not what you'd call a resort by any stretch of the imagination. When I arrived, the clerk was very nice and then he said that he will be adding a $10... More

HOT water - imagine brushing your teeth in that and NO SHOWERS due to the scalding water...dirty carpets, poor ventilation, badly fitting windows, a Flamingo dancer upstairs all night!!! NEVER again...after 30 years.

I didn't have reservations but the night clerk was very accommodating and friendly. I'd sprained my ankle very badly that same night and he showed genuine concern seeing me limp from the office to my room. What's more, I locked myself out of my room and had to go back to the office three times, but each time he was... More

I was in santa clara and didn't reserve any room. I couldn't find any hotel with rooms available for night. This was the only hotel which said there might be a chance of cancellation and will know for sure at 1pm. I was there at that time and got the last room available. The front desk agent was so helpful... More

I came to town for a concert and had a friend refer me to your hotel and I must say...I will definitely be a returning guest in the future. The staff there was top notch, the room was fantastic, & the pool was very relaxing. I will definitely be back and also plan to recommend your hotel to everyone I... More
