When I first checked in I was given a room that had been mistakenly been given to someone else. I was immediately given a upgrade to a king room that had been redone. The room was nice and spacious and very clean. Sometimes it's more about the service and what is done to correct it when a mistake is made.

You are correct in saying “sometimes it's more about the service and what is done to correct it…” Our staff is trained to provide outstanding customer service and when a mistake is made, they do “the right thing”.

Friendly and helpful staff, super clean room with all the little niceties, and a designated greasy area for your favorite four-legged friend, complete with small bags and a trash can! Plus a modest pet fee less than most other places. Also, well-insulated rooms - you'd never know it was right on the main highway!

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your comments particularly “The Pet-Friendliest” and “Friendly and helpful staff, super clean room”. We like that you mentioned our pet area and sure that you meant “grassy” not “greasy”, :)) We know what you meant because we strive to keep that area as clean and well kept as all other areas of the...

This is an older budget motel with quite modest rates. My room was clean, spacious, well maintained and quite adequate for my needs. You can hear Hwy 101, but it is not obtrusive. I could occasionally hear sounds from the parking lot, but nothing after 9 pm and nothing out of the routine one should expect for a place of... More

This was our second time staying at this place because it was very affordable, clean, and the office staff are very accommodating.
