I'm not leaving this review to vent or bellyache...this is truly to help others...PLEASE DON'T STAY HERE! I’m here to tell you this is the worst motel experience of my life. I’ve traveled quite a bit in the past (driven through 46 states) and have stayed in many different places, but this takes the cake for being the worst. I... More

Have you ever wondered what a motel put-together with items from Craigslist's free section would be like? Well, that's exactly what this motel looks like. The furniture is dirty and walls are smeared with questionable substances. I'm not picky and have stayed at many places, but this is by far the dirtiest and worst place I have ever seen. Please...

I can't describe how awful this place is- I am half tempted to sleep in my car because all the surrounding hotels are fully booked. This place is filthy dirty- questionable people- NO air conditioner- And a bar down the street that is still blasting music at 12:30 am. Owners barely speak English..... Hotter then he'll in this room and... More

We were looking for an economical place to stay. We have spent $60 per night at other places and got a so-so accomodation. You don't expect much for that price, but this place was the pits. I would never recommend it. It was small, had bad furniture, dirty carpet, the furnace didn't work, the TV had no remote, there was... More

I was traveling from San Francisco to Solvang - Ca, last October 11th, 2014. It was a Columbus day Holiday. Almost all hotel and Motels were busy. It was late in the night, and tired of driving na looking for a place to sleep I found this motel ar 605, S Broadway, Santa Maria Califórnia. The recepcionista was a very... More

First room we checked in had no soap and dirty towels on the floor. Filthy heating vents. Rooms are tiny and cramped. When we complained it wasn't cleaned and they moved us, the second room had holes above the heater, a broken drawer, electrical outlets with wires hanging out and duct tape on the doorknob. Really? Bikes line the outside... More

It certainly is economical. Perhaps the savings comes from not providing the little things. There is no closet, nor is there anywhere to hang anything, no rod, no hooks, not even a chair for the kneehole desk on which to drape a shirt (and I do not count door knobs as a legitimate alternative). There was no light or lamp... More

This place is soooo noisy!!! All kinds of shady characters playing loud music, hanging around the parking lot with whom the manager was very friendly with. Once we got in our room, we got to hear all the construction going on, AT 7:00 pm. We came to rest. Then at 2:00 am we heard all kinds of noise coming from... More

I am not a hotel/motel snob by any means. I see them as simply a place to sleep at night so you can carry on with the fun during the day. My husband and I stayed here because we wanted to take a last minute road trip up the coast for Valentine's day weekend. This was the ONLY motel with... More

Driving all day and almost out of funds, thank you for a clean, safe and affordable place to get some shut eye. Front desk guy you were awesome!...sorry, just noticed I needed a few more words.
