“Not staying here again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights, we chose it too be close to knotts & yes it sure was but.. I would not reccamend this hotel! The rooms are old, run down, the walls are super thin!! You can hear everything outside your door! The pool is ok. I didn't like that there are no elevators, only outside concrete stairs. The tv entertainment center has deep scratches all over the front of it. The bed is not comfortable! The curtains were partially broken. The knobs in the so called mini kitchen were broken. The bathroom is extremely small! Overall we will not be staying here again!

We stayed here because of the rate & location. The room was in great need of renovation. The restroom was the main problem. The walls were cracked and in need of paint. The sink was a wall hung sink which left no where to keep toiletries. The wi fi only worked outside and the public computer didn't work. Our room was adjacent to breakfast area so it was noisy early in a.m. The parking lot was also small and felt a bit unsafe. Would only recommend if you are on tight budget & not very picky. I give it a 4 on a 1-10.

The nice thing about this place is the proximity to the theme park. The staff was polite and it has a pool and jacuzzi. However, the towels and sheets smelled and felt horrible. The people above us had a party and stayed up all night. I called and visited the front desk three times and all they did was call. There were drunks stumbling around and they even threw up in the halls, but nothing was done. The jacuzzi had kids yelling well after the ten pm closure time. When I asked for a manager or owner, I was told only a clerk was present and there would be no one to help me. I got zero sleep and all I was offered was an extra two hours for checkout. I needed to drive seven hours, but the house is still going at 8 am. Spend the few extra hours and go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Nicer hotels a mile north, but if you like loud neighbors and no support, then this place is for you...

I was very impressed by the friendly staff and personnel. If you book in advance it is very reasonable. The room was clean and filled with great amenities. e.g. (full size refrigerator, electric range, microwave, television, wi-fi internet -password available at front desk). It is walking distance from Knotts Berry Farm so you can save money from parking. Lots of restaurant around walking distance as well. It has a pool and free breakfast. I highly recommend it for people who are on a budget and still get good service and amenities. I will come back for sure

Room Tip: book in advance choose non - smoking section

I booked this hotel before I read the reviews. Boy, am I glad I did. It's true, this hotel is an older one but like my granddaughter said "Older doesn't mean bad" The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. You can't beat the price or the location when going to Knotts.

We stayed here based on Tripadvisor reviews. Yikes. The staff at the desk were not in the least friendly or helpful, none of them. The entire entry area and check-in process is weird, leaving you feeling like there must be a lot of crime in the area. The room was shabby, holes in the sheets, way out-of-date decor; small bathroom with no towel racks or fan and thin, cheap towels. We even got to listen to someone dragging suitcases down the stairs in the wee hours. Oh, skip the 'breakfast'.

I was embarrassed that I had selected this motel. I have been all over Europe where small and modest can surprise you, but I felt like I hit bottom with this one. I am SURE we could have done better.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!!!!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

We had a mixed experience at this place. Facility was run down with old carpets, old air conditioners and old appliances. Bathroom was tiny. But the beds were comfortable. The facility had many many posted warnings about stealing towels, soap or taking breakfast items out of the breakfast room. The lady on the reception desk was trying to help everyone, but I did not see her smiling once. On the other hand the location is great. It is right across from Knott Berry Farm and people visiting Knott Berry can just cross the road to get there without the hessel of driving or finding parking. It is close to highway and great restaurants. It also has a 24 hour subway besides it, so finding food cannot be an issue if you feel hungry in the middle of the night. There pool was cleaner than other similar facilities and I enjoyed it. Recommended for people visiting Knott Berry.
