This is a very basic, good value, but clean and comfortable motel. The amenities are basic, and the rooms do look a bit dingy at first, but they are clean and comfortable. We had our evening meal from the Chinese takeaway over the road and breakfast at Lita's café nearby. In an area with some extortionately expensive hotels this was... More

We had to come inland to Santa Rosa as there was no accommodation at the coast. This was the first motel with a vacancy so we took it. We are still in the early days of our trip so it is hard to judge, but we felt it was a bit over priced for a basic motel. However, it was... More

The room was spacious and included a small refrigerator and microwave. Everything seemed clean and freshly painted. It was what we needed where we needed it. Nothing special but very functional. We would return if the need arises again. It is easy walking distance to the beautiful Santa Rosa Junior College campus and anything you could need while visiting there.... More

The pictures of this hotel look way better online than what is actually there. It was clean but very old and the front desk girl was anything but helpful. Not recommended for more than $75 a night. I was disappointed by the service, the walls that were so thin I felt like I was in the room next to me... More

The ownerr gave us his cup of coffe so that we woudn't have to wait another 10 or 15 minutes for the next jug. The help was very responsive, we needed... More

Booked through expedia, this is a small motel-style hotel that was great! Had a fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, and table and chairs in our room. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was very kind and easy going! They even let me print out my bus ticket in the lobby. :-) Would recommend to all.

We made tis reservation online while on a family road trip, most reviews stated the rooms were noisy, especially the truckers who use this motel to stay. We were pleasantly surprised to find the room was very clean and smoke free. Wifi was provided. We did hear the sound of trucks backing in at night but then we had a... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the accommodations, especially considering the good deal we got on hotels.com. We were greeted by one of the owners, who was extremely friendly, upbeat and gracious. Our room was quite large and very clean, with a brand-new flat screen wall-mounted HD TV (with Dish network - 100s of channels), brand new fridge and comfy... More

Clean room, comfortable KS bed, HD tv, hardly any traffic noise b4 8am. Fridge & microwave - bring your own ceramic coffee cup for heating water for tea. We were visiting the local Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa for Trisha's Ministerial graduation, so we did not need a pool or workout room. This place is convenient to freeways, she... More

The room was clean and comfortable. We were surprised to find a mini fridge, which was super quiet, and a microwave. My husband was able to refreeze the ice packs in the small freezer which was nice. The bed was comfortable. I turned the air conditioner off when we went to bed because it was a little noisy. There were... More
