Advertisement said indoor pool, however although it has 4 walls surrounding it, there is no roof on it and the day we stayed it was cold and rainy so therefore the pool was a disappointment. Really old.

Walked in to room and it was filthy! Windows wee propped open with wooden hangers. (Non-smoking room) brings holes in carpet, blanket and vanity. Hair in sink like someone had just shaved. Rotting bathroom floor, liquid spilled All over refrigerator, carpet stained, bathroom floor rotting- worst hotel I have ever seen- I cannot believe this place is still open. I... More

I do apologize for the condition you found the room in. I have dealt with the housekeeper that was responsible for cleaning your room. We are currently waiting for our new windows to come in that will replace all of the rooms windows. Unfortunately it has taken a bit longer since our windows are a special order. They will be...

Fleas jumped on 2 of my family members, then me. And get this....my car keys were still in my hand I hadnt even had time to inspect... More

I am so sorry you had a bad experience while at our hotel. We are a pet friendly hotel, and try our best to take every precaution against having any sort of flea problem. We do have a contract with a pest control company for just such an issue. We are also looking into different types of flooring that will... More

Although this hotel looked nice on the outside, but the inside, wow. For the price I would have expected a working room fridge and a working tub. Not only that, but they had room charges for everything. if you plan on staying here bring your own towels because they are fees for using theirs also test the shower before you... More

Thank you for the review. I will be addressing all your concerns regarding the fridge and bath with the maintenance right away. I apologize that your sleep was not comfortable, I was unaware that there was a problem with any mattress being oversized for our box springs. Of course we will remedy this problem asap. Regarding the bed size, we... More

The outside of the hotel seemed charming, parking was tight. When we walked into our Queen room that we paid over $200 a night for, we were appalled. The carpet was extremely stained, where we were afraid of removing our shoes. The bed was old, worn out, and you could feel the springs. The bedding seemed clean, but was stained,... More

August 2014. This place is a DUMP and in an unsafe area of town. Not worth the $256 we paid for a room. WE were traveling with a pet and this property had a good rating on BringFido. Boy, were they wrong. No place to take her out for pee and poo. This may have been a nice hotel YEARS... More

The women at the front desk are really friendly. This seems like an older motel and not much updates since it was built. our room was small, but it served it's purpose and our bedding was clean. However, there were what looked like blood splatter scattered throughout the very VERY small bathroom walls and the carpet in room was stained.... More

My husband and two young kids stayed here July 10, 2014. We booked hotels the same day since we were on a road trip up to San Francisco from San Diego. The ratings were mixed, but there were enough and we basically just needed a place to sleep. Arrived after 8. The interesting people smoking and randomly calling to people... More

The establishment looks like one from the '30's. The surrounding neighborhood looks rather dismal, and one would get the feeling "am I really in a resort town?" Who seemed to be a new registration clerk(student) registered me, without extending me any introductory type of information that other facilities usually do . I started to get an uneasy feeling, but this... More
