“dont stay there it sucks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I spoke to the manager on duty Maria Avina about bed bugs that were in my bed. She must of had some personal problems because she had a really bad attitude. The company that I work for sends alot of people there. As a supervisor of my company I am personaly going to place my team members at another hotel. I rather pay the difference and stay at another place.

all Imperial Valley residents get 200.00 deposit charge to stay . we are not welcome !!
have signs on the rooms not to use the towels other that clean your hands or will get extra charge for the towel, beds are not comfortable.
room is dirty and not worth the money .
they take a copy of you DL and when check in and keep it. I ask for it in my way out and they do not returned, they claim that the keep it for the record but did not insure to what management will do with it.

I'm sitting in my room at Brunner's Inn and Suites escaping the summer desert heat until the temparature drops and I can go fishing, frogging, and crawddang. The room is very clean and cool. It's about 105 degrees outside but feels more like 115. The room is amazing. It comes with plenty of soap, shampoo and towels. Has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tv, VCR (obsolete but wow!) ceiling fan, Lazyboy recliner, even a toaster!
It also has a gym, a pool, a spa, and is located in the part of the city where one has access to everything. The awesome part is the rate. It is so affordable I decided to stay another night, and my even stay another!

I am a construction worker & have stayed in motels all over the country and I can say Brunners is second to none. Friendly staff, office, housekeepers even the handyman ! Rooms are cleaned daily & always plenty of towels,soap, shampoo etc. I'd recommend to anyone.Nice little pool area, free gas barbecue pit. I loved it and will stay there again this year.

This hotel was reasonably priced for the location. It is located in the center of town near many restaurants, stores, etc. Room was outdated but overall was very clean. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. You cant beat the price so I would definitely return.

It looks ok from the outside but the rooms are so outdated and filthy. Don't waste your money, stay somewhere else where they actually keep the rooms clean and you will not find garbage and dirt on the carpet from previous guests.

  • Disliked — the decor and because it was so filthy

Brunner's is convenient to restaurants in downtown El Centro, and the room was nice-enough (at least for my wife and me). However, if you're staying on a Saturday night, you may be well-advised to get a room toward the back of the property. On the Saturday night we stayed there, we were almost literally thumped out of our beds by the high-decibel bass booming from the attached restaurant/bar. We were across the parking lot from the bar and sleep was impossible. Thankfully the party was over at 2 am. So, unless you don't mind being rattled from your bed on Saturday night, stay toward the back end of the property.

  • Liked — 1940's look
  • Disliked — Music from adjacent bar
