The rooms that have not been recently remodeled are very dirty. Our room had cigarette burn holes and yellow stains in the comforters. When arriving I wiped the whole place down with Clorox wipes and they were dark brown when I finished. Shower curtain in the bathroom has probably been there for 20 plus years. The smell of the room... More

The first time we stayed the room was $52.00 very old and worn out, the floor just outside our room was rotted and felt like you'd fall through, second time we got a suite $72 on lower level, was a nice big room and slightly updated very comfortable. 3rd time we stayed we took one of the remodeled rooms, wasn't...

First off, we are not rich, but we enjoy a middle class hotel to make our money stretch. After saying NOWAY to the Sand, and Monarch we ended up here because the Americas Best Inn was over $100.00 We stayed in the "newly remodeled section" $5,00 more a night (remodeled in the late 1980's) The carpet was the worst stained...

My husband and I stayed there Wednesday, April 29th. The room was the dirtiest we've ever experienced in this country, but we'd driven ten hours, and it was the only "pet-friendly" room available. The wastepaper basket in the bathroom was overflowing with garbage. There was a used, dried up washcloth in the bathtub, and when I picked it up to... More

We were excited that the rooms were recently remodeled, well guess what. Only a few were and not the one we got to stay in. However it was comfortable, clean linens, and two of our group felt beds were comfy.

Asked at the petrol station where best to stay and the attendant gave me the address for the El Capitan. It was perfect. Lovely helpful... More

There are billboards leading into Hawthorne, advising of newly remodeled rooms. I don't know how many there are, but no one in my group got one. Every room had issues. The heating/AC units were awful. The beds were probably from the 70's or sooner. Our coffee maker not only didn't make coffee, it leaked everywhere. Pillows were flat and lumpy.... More
