The owner and staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and affordable, and the breakfast was fine. Brawley city lacks good restaurants but it was a pleasure to find a nice place to sleep after trying to find a motel in Salton City (which lacks everything that defines a city). Can only be recommended.

Thank you for sharing with the future travelers to Brawley two things:
A).Fair price. Yes your discovery excited me. We firstly kicked out the Franchise and then, using the savings to benefit our guests, simple.
B).Friendly staff. It's just part of our culture. Through friendliness, you being comfortable with our messages aims for the well being of the guests. You experience the experiences . We go beyond services. When guests approach my GM or me the owner about their touch on beauty and feeling from this hotel, I know we have done something better than some franchise defining their marketing strategy with HOT COOKIE.
From time to time, travelers from Switzerland, Germany or other European countries were lured by the names of Bombay Beach or Marina Landing of Salton Sea and found nothing as you stated they were confused, frustrated, wondering, and then read our billboard of "33 miles" in huge painting. No wonder those foreigner brother/sister continued to claim that our billboard was as"LIGHT HOUSE OF THE SEA". They surely enjoyed our hot breakfast and the non preaching environmental messages in the breakfast area. Just as you know, within two minutes walk, there is the famous Aspen in the Desert restaurant, Chinese and Japanese restaurant even Starbucks. Checking in daytime you will see. Please tell your colleagues or friends. Your word of mouth will mean a lot to us- a non Franchise hotel that "TRY HARDER" as Avis Car Rental slogan persists.
Thank you again and travel safe.
