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

oh the manager were very co-operative at midnight 3am . the rooms and the surrounding was very peaceful at a very resonable price. you can just book them online or just call them and do the reservation and give your time of arrival so that they are aware you are coming.

Horrible experience with the owner of this property. Booked this hotel through Expedia.com (never again). After I booked room with Expedia I called the hotel to confirm the reservation with the owner by the way and it was also secured with a credit card. Arrived at midnight to check in and rang the bell only to be ignored. If you... More

We needed to find a last minute room in Santa Maria and this motel was one of the only places with space so we took a room. We got to the room late but woke up a couple hours later and the bed was CRAWLING with bed bugs. They were all over the sheets, pillows, and us. Getting a refund... More

This place was the worse place i've ever stayed, while there are some good reviews for this place, those people musta have been looking the other way. Our company booked us for one night and as result one of my co-workers got bit above the eye by a bed-bug. Thier room was short on towels , toliet paper and dirty... More

I stayed in room 136. Paid for the week so me and my child werent sleeping in car anymore. There were BEDBUGS ALL OVER US, so I packed our things and would rather sleep in car. The hotel manager didnt reimburse me the 242 I paid for the week. They even charged us 50 for the night.
