“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The reviews of this place are kind of frightening, but found it to be OK. Was staying at the 6 down the street but needed a fridge for meds. Found the staff friendly and attentive. Outside clean, pool OK. Room was clean, if a bit old. But the place is inexpensive, not the Hilton, but half the price. Bed was comfortable, WiFi worked. Shower nice and hot and the AC works good. I was in room 203, half again the size of the last 6. Blow drier, fridge microwave, coffee pot, iron and ironing board and a SAFE. Coffee was good and had a donut. Glad I found it, I'll be here on business through July, her I stay.

Check-in was smooth, lots of rooms but was placed near freeway? Only bad thing was the vanity faucet didn't work. After pushing and pullin gon it over an dover it finally gave a small trickle of water. Didn't do the breakfast or use any ammenities. Had excessive charge fadded on by some booking middle man organization. wasn't motels charge when I paid by Pay Pal. One concern was no refund for booking room if cancelled...

I thought by the pictures that this place might be comparable to a Days Inn or a Best Western, but there was hair, mold, and better furniture at a 1970's dorm. The smell was not much better. Pay more, or keep driving to the next town.

The WORST place ever. Unclean, Unsafe, Uncomfortable. We left Anaheim HOJO ( nice stay) 12 hours later arrived here. Yes, we should have left however too tired to do anything about it. Notified the front desk and was told they were sorry however, we had the best room there. REALLY!!! We should have figured it out when we checked in and the front desk person told us he knew we requested a king bed, However, there was a hole in the davenport which other guests had already complained about. He suggested room 205 with a queen was even better than there only One king bed room at their hotel. AGAIN, REALLY, ONLY ONE KING BED AT THE HOTEL. WOW!!! Needless to say we were afraid to walk on the carpet little lone sleep in the bed without our clothes on. We finally feel asleep at 1230am and were gone by 530am. When checking out the new desk person asked how our stay was. I asked him if he really wanted to know since the first desk person could have really cared less. He listened, told me he would tell the manager, charged my credit card and sent me on my way. DO NOT STAY HERE.
AWFUL...........:(

We booked this hotel through a travelocity deal. Upon arriving we awere informed that our door key didn't work and that we would need to be let in the room by the hotel staff any time we left. becasue the key didn't work, the door to our room had been left open all day while tons of people wandered around. Upon entering the room we found hair in the sink and on the toilet, totally gross and unacceptable. We immediatley turned in our keys and left the hotel Be warned that if you book a top secret deal through travelocity, this is what you will end up with. Don't stay here!!!
