Not having read the prior reviews, we fell victim to this bedbug motor court. I am a bit paranoid of these little critters already, and when I check in to ANY hotel, I check for bugs in and under the sheets, between the mattresses, etc. I did this upon check-in, and found nothing initially. Unfortunately, I didn't check well enough.... More

We stayed at this dump in room 103 on 07-04-2012, checking out on 07-05-2012. By 5 PM the next day, my daughter and I were covered in bed bug bites (Photos taken). As this these were the only other beds in which we had slept in over a month, we know definitely that we were attacked at this establishment. To... More

We'd had a good stay at the La Mesa (and an OK stay at the La Loma), so we thought we'd try the Sun n' Sand this time. It looks like they've put some recent effort into upgrading the rooms - walls and bath were clean & functional. The neon sign is legendary. No pool, but Park Lake is only... More

We thought we would save a few dollars and stay at this motel. You get what you pay for if you stay here! The rooms need updating. The TV remote only worked for the volume, we ran out of toilet paper and no replacement under the sink. A huge gap under the door let in 3 huge crickets that freaked... More

We had breakfast there. The food was outstanding. We both ate omelets (different), and they were delicious. The price was very reasonable too. The people were friendly and seemed to know a lot of the customers. Service was good. The restaurant was clean (even the bathrooms). Great place to eat. If we're ever out that way again, we'll definitely stop... More

This motel for $40.00 furnished a comfortable king size bed, TV, microwave, small refrigerator and a clean bathroom. The non-smoking room did not smell bad. The outside appearance is dated but the room inside was maintained.

It was the first place we saw as we drove into Santa Rosa - we couldn't miss it because of the huge neon sign. We ate at their diner. Nice enough food, reasonable service. This is a no frills place but it felt safe. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Fine for night on the way to somewhere.... More
