Pro: The motel looked like it was recently remodeled. The room was clean and staff was friendly. The motel was located right off the 235 freeway. Con: The bed was extremely uncomfortable. I woke up with neck and back pain. They need to get a better quality mattress. It was located away from entertainment areas.

I should have maybe canceled my reservations right then and there, but because of a time issue, didn't. When I got to my room, it was dark and dingy. It... More

Have never stayed in a motel where my room had two doors. I parked right outside the back door the front door giving access to the corridor leading to reception etc. Friendly and helpful staff at reception when i checked in and left. Room very clean with a comfortable bed.
