My friend and I had to do a last-minute stay here due to road conditions in the Sierras preventing us from driving further until the next day. It's not the finest hotel in town, but it was adequate for an overnight stay. Our room was freezing cold when we first entered, but the HVAC system quickly warmed it up. The room was reasonably clean, and quiet. A breakfast is offered but we did not partake in it as we had plans to meet friends at a nearby restaurant.
Why is it not the finest hotel in the area? The hotel is in need of a major facelift. It appears to have been built in the 1970's and the bath fixtures especially reflect its age: where else can you find square-front toilets with matching toilet seats? I wouldn't call it "run down" but it most definitely is a time warp.
But for our overnight stay it wasn't bothersome at all. We got a great night's sleep (especially since we had a nearly 12 hour drive that day), the staff was friendly, and the reservation, check-in, and check-out processes were painless.
