“great place for overnight stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

my wife and i also two friends stopped overnight at this hotel on our fly drive trip
and found it more than satisfactory,
on our trip we have stayed at many hotel for overnight stops but we find this one well worth a mention the rooms had wow factor when you enter and you think nice room
travelers like us on fly drive will know what we mean by that,
there is also a nice pool area with a disabled chair lift not that we required it but its nice to see
and another plus 2 minuets walk is a very nice place to eat

Very nice motel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice clean room, well maintained. Clean pool and spa as well as all of the surrounding planters and parking lots were very nice. Breakfast was very good and fresh. Great deal for the price. If i was in the area again I would stay here. After 82 miles on a bicycle in 110 degree heat this place was the best.

Room Tip: I don't think you could get a bad room in the place.

My wife and I regularly stay at Best Western hotels because they are clean, convenient, and always reasonably priced. During our most recent stay, the lady checked us in upgraded our room from a queen to a king and also moved us downstairs, at no extra charge. We appreciated this a lot since my wife was pregnant at the time.

This hotel looks decent, with a nice effort in the room decoration which makes them feel welcoming. However, it's obviously not run by someone who cares...
Our shower handle appeared to be broken, stuck to the highest temperature and impossible to turn towards cold. The water was BURNING hot. We called the front desk, who said that they would TRY to send someone to fix it. I don't know how much they tried, but more than an hour later, nobody had showed up and we had to leave, without being able to take a shower. We wanted to hit the road early that morning, but with the wait, we didn't leave until almost 10am.
I'm not too demanding when it comes to a hotel but there are 2 things I expect to be able to do: SLEEP and SHOWER. I don't think that's too much to ask.
On top of that, the breakfast room was very dirty, nobody being there to clean up the tables after guests were done. Most tables were covered with bread crumbs and scrambled eggs pieces. Gross.

All in all I don't recommend this hotel, since my experience was very poor!

Enroute to Yosemite National Park, and after a long drive from Vegas, we pulled into this great little find. Three people, (one couple) and two large double beds. Free WIFI, laundry, pool (clean with extra towels) jacquizzi, lots of parking. The number one exciting moment for my mother was having a bathroom which door opened to allow someone to use the toilet/shower at the same time as someone using the rest of the bathroom.
Friendly staff, and a great clean, happy family environment. Highly recommended!

We were touring and just pulled in on the off chance of a vacancy. The bedroom was really good with 2 double beds, free WiFi, lovely bath in the spacious bathroom and lots of toiletries.The room was very fresh and modern and really clean. The staff were lovely and very helpful. There is a pool and Jacuzzi which are open until 10pm. Breakfast was included at no extra cost and was sausages, waffles, eggs etc served buffet style, delicious. Really nice hotel at a low cost price, totally recommend staying here.
