Last weekend, stayed at the Rancho California to visit family and see the annual air show. The airshow and the family visiting, was great. This property, was NOT. Came to front area to check after we had dinner upon arrival. Just could not walk in, like other properties. Rather had to ring and talk to a night manager through a... More

Pros: room is very clean, quiet. AC is OK. Cons: towels had a nasty smell. My husband had to take another shower, and dry up with a t-shirt. We were in a hurry to leave, so I didn't have time to complain. Sorry, I'm not staying here again.

We stayed here one night during Labor Day Weekend and found it to be clean and comfortable. The furnishings have been updated and the air conditioning worked well. It's not luxury, but it's very nice. It's a pleasant walk into town for restaurants and shopping. The museum is very close and the beautiful Temecula Community theatre is just a half... More

This is a new hotel with nice clean rooms. The only issue I had is that the walls are paper thin and I could hear EVERYTHING going on in the room next to me. If you have quiet neighbors it would be fine. I unfortunately did not have that happen and spent most of the night having to hear what... More

The rooms have been recently remodeled and are very nicely painted with new fixtures. I did not have any problem with the water but would have given an exceptional except for the towels! They really need to be upgraded, they are VERY thin and rough. Within walking distance to Old Town, owners are very nice and accommodating. Really appreciate that... More

If you're considering Motel 6, Ramada or Rodeway Inn in Old Town Temecula, DON'T. Stay here instead and enjoy a new hotel on an old property. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Walking distance to Old Town and nicely appointed rooms with free wi-fi, microwave and refrigerator, and pillow-top mattresses. And the owners are very courteous and accommodating. We'll definitely stay... More

We chose this place because of the location. Its a great location within walking distance of Old Town Front St. This place was not worth the money. It was well overpriced for what was offered. They should not advertise a continental breakfast. The breakfast consisted of nutragrain bars, weak coffee and very very small pieces of fruit ( minature apples... More

We stayed here during a weekday to celebrate a friend's birthday. The rooms we had (3 couples) were all clean, comfortable, and affordable during the week. Each room had a microwave, refrigerator, and small coffee pot. There is a small pool next to the office. It is within walking distance to Old Town Temecula and there is great coffee shop... More
