“Unplanned stop...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We stopped here after 11pm without a reservation because the place we had planned on was so bad. There is not a lot to choose from in Los Banos but the Sun Star Inn was close, the man pleasant although sleepy at this hour! The room was old but clean, the bed comfortable. We would not go back there (a little too shabby to plan a trip around) but were pleasantly surprised and tired enough to be content.

Nice and clean large room...! They provide basic amenities including a soap cake, shampoo pack, in-room coffee maker with a prepacked coffee powder, WiFi and cable TV. Air conditioner is also clean with adjustable strength and temperature. 7 milkes off I-5 but definitely worth the detour for a night's stay. Couldn't believe it was available only for $40!

Room Tip: I asked for a single room but was given an "upgrade" for a larger room for two. It was ver...

The hotel owner greeted me with a smile and provided a very fair price for the room. We were happy with the room. We really appreciated that the lights were on timers/sensors that auto shut off after a while, saving energy.

Room Tip: upper floor very quit.

The hotel owner greeted me with a smile and provided a very fair price for the room. We were happy with the room. We really appreciated that the lights were on timers/sensors that auto shut off after a while, saving energy. The only draw back was that we prefer bathtubs and our room only had a shower. But we did not ask for the bathtub, so perhaps we could have had one, if we had asked the owner.

Great little place we find. We checked in and the lady on the front desk was very welcoming. We were able to check in quickly and was given a choice of room. The room was very clean and tidy. The room and towels were all clean.We found the owner to be very pleasant, when we asked a particular question, the gentleman answered us comprehensively and also chased us down the street when he recalled something else which may be helpful to us.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I try to be charitable in reviewing cheaper properties. Here again, an option of "fair" would be more accurate than "poor" but I can't in good conscience rate this property "average." Lots of road noise. Pretty shabby room. Old and tired property. Towels worse than my high school gym towels. Two very skinny pillows. The management was friendly, though.

Room Tip: As far away from the highway as possible.
