Really disappointed with this place. I have a kitchen in my room like a tenement apartment and i have been to one. The shower knobs are cruddy looking like if there is some sort of mold on it or this room has not been used in a long time but i was told they had someone just yesterday. Was going... More

The owner was nice and tried to make our stay nice, but the pictures online is nothing like the actual room, the cabinets were broken, but he said not to worry because it's not going to bother or rest, the hot water didn't work so they gave us the key to the room next door so we could shower, the...

Would not recommend to anyone. Room had ants so moved to another room which also had ants. Owner had to see for himself and then sprayed bug spray. He refunded my money for the room $100.43. After we left my card was charged $311.96 and the owner denied doing so and I had to have my card cancelled.

Pleasant, clean and affordable. Down the street is a Fresh and Easy market. A little further east is a Vons market for breakfast items, fruit, and light meals. Business trip and safe for solo traveler. Coffee and tea in lobby.

Used the motel on a road trip. Sure it is not top drawer but It is not expensive, facilities are good and everything required for a night or two. Good restaurant across the road (to the left) and couple of convenient stores closeby. Even Pizza and Mexican takeaways. May have disappointed if I was paying $150 but I was not!... More

Looking for inexpensive accommodations in a safe setting, this motel may be for you. I was recently put up at the Rode Way inn in Ventura CA on business. The motel recently under went a model, painted exterior walls, top coat of tar paint on driveway, tile floors and painted interiors. My room was bare bones, no closet nor dresser,... More

Not suitable for families. The floor and windows were dirty. The fridge was filthy and the neighbours were having noisy sex!!! Location is far from the harbour and the promenade. Checked in and out again in less than 2 hours. Avoid this hotel, it's cheap but not cheerful!

Not sure what the other reviews are about but we stayed one night and it was fine. Very reasonably priced and our unit had new carpet fresh paint and was in excellent condition. The person on the desk was very pleasant and easy to deal with. Not sure if it is under new management or what but we had no... More

From the photo of the front gates this place looks nice, however its slightly seedy, a bit dirty and the wifi doesn't work, even with the correct code. I have to say that the young lad on reception was very helpful, even though he was on the other side of a window and dealing with me through a hatch. Got... More
