The bed is like a rock, the pillows are flat and dirty with stains. The room is two small, no chairs. No curtains, television is too small and doesn't work. coffee maker does not work. Not what it was suppose to be. People very nice but when you cant sleep because it like sleeping on a rock, and no curtains,... More

Well managed, well maintained motel in the heart of Whittier. Rooms range from standard to apartment with separate kitchenette area. Rooms are expertly painted, not the usual slap-dash paint work seen in many motels. Colors of carpet, walls, drapes were coordinated by an Interior decorator and are beautiful. The bathroom in our up-graded king room would be a highlight of... More

Clean but basic motel. Quiet. Unfriendly welcome from woman at check-in. No smile, no welcome, just credit card and license. Parking lot is tight. I work in Human Resources in the hotel industry in Las Vegas. Rule of thumb is two - three sets of towels per person. Only one set here and the thinnest towels imaginable. The bath mat... More

We stayed at this little motel for 2 weeks while exploring California and LA. Were a bit apprehensive after reading a few negative reviews but can easily say now that it is much better than expected! The rooms were cleaned every day, clean towels every day. The roll-in-shower was just what it should be. Perfect for wheelchair users. All we... More

Wife and I stayed here 6 nights. We were impressed and well satisfied. Clean rooms, accommodating staff, convenient for our purposes of sightseeing in Los Angeles and Orange County. We were visiting from New Orleans.

Recently renovated motel located on main drag. Room and furnishings were clean and had a 42" flat screen tv. Don't be intimidated by the check in area. It's not really bullet proof glass.Price was right. Ask for a room away from the Blvd. Pool is quite small, but the kids might like it? Average for hotels in general, very good... More

Clean and basic but more than adequate for a short stay and I would use again There are few places to stay I this part of Whittier but this is the one I would recommend. Not many places to eat close by but short rise will take you to most outlets

This is more of a motel. It doesn't have any frills, but does have recently renovated rooms that are clean, quite and the bed was comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and we were happy with our choice of this motel. It was a good value. The only issue we had was that the tub and sink were slow to drain.... More

This place is a bit intimidating when you initially drive up. Looks clean but looks a bit dated on the outside. That doesn't matter though when you walk through the door. The room was remodeled and looked great!!! There is not many choices when looking for a place in Whittier, but this is the BEST!. They were very nice, accommodating... More

The place is shabby and dated. There are no frills. Handles were falling off of the sink vanity, and the refrigerator was leaking all over the carpet. The apparent residents of the hotel appeared to be done on their luck. Although the place is centrally located, we should have turned around and left when the desk person spoke to us... More
