“surprise, surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

after going in the office, and finding the clerk behind bulletproof glass, I almost regretted the reviews I had read. then when the desk chair had tears, I swallowed hard, and figured for $64 what do I expect. But what I got was a lot more, too many channels on a new flat screen, very comfy bed, lighting that surpasses anything else I ever stayed in, and little touches like free water in fridge, and free toiletires, including comb, toothpaste and brush, mouthwash. room was immaculate, very quiet, and best $ 64 I ever spent for a $100 room. You will be a fool if you pass this one up!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I was looking for budget priced lodging near my friends at UC Riverside and I saw this on the internet. At first I was skeptical and I didn't want to book on-line without seeing the hotel first. When I arrived at the hotel on a Saturday afternoon, the Front Desk Clerk was borderline rude. I asked to see a room before I made a decision and was told that was impossible after 3 PM. Well, I decided to take a chance because with the AAA discount it was $64/night. What a GREAT find! The was well appointed and extremely clean! There was a nice sitting area with a pull out couch, a large desk, Mini Fridge that works well, clean bathroom and very comfortable bed. I enjoyed the breakfast in the morning and the do-it-yourself waffles were very good. The internet connection worked perfectly. All in all this was a great find and a tremendous bargain. I would definitely recommend in the future. The only drawback was the rather unpleasant receptionist. It was also convenient to have the pizza parlor next door. Had a delicious take out dinner in my room.

Room Tip: She told me it wasn't very crowded that night so it was very quiet. I was in 107 by the stairs.

As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe at this small, affordable motel. My king deluxe suite was spacious and clean, the shower was luxurious with bi-level spray, the TV provided many channels, the in-room free Wifi was very welcome, and I made good use of the mini fridge with free bottled water and the in-room coffee maker. The bedding was also very deluxe, soft and clean. The complimentary breakfast served in the small lobby included cold cereal, oatmeal, bagels with cream cheese, waffles, sweet rolls, coffee, orange juice and apple juice. The young man who staffed the front desk was unfailingly welcoming and helpful. And just across the street was a shopping area with several food options and a movie theater. I would definitely stay here again!

This is a property in between a motel (your car is parked just outside your room) and a hotel (fancy room, breakfast included). For two nights I was in one of their high-end rooms with fridge, microwave, a large screen TV, wireless, and a Jacuzzi to boot. Alas, the Jacuzzi did not work well. The room is well furnished (comfortable couch, desks, plenty of towels, etc). Continental breakfast has rather limited range with no variation from day-to-day. There was a waffle-maker which for a one-day stay could be an attraction. Apples were the only fruit option. The weaknesses of the place were, however, largely made up by the helpfulness and courtesy of the staff. It is within walking distance of UC, Riverside and there are plenty of eateries close by.

Two story motel adjacent to University village and down the street from UCR. Nearby restaurants, convenient stores and a Starbucks. Paid less than $100 so was a great value. Room was average size. Had refrigerator, microwave, TV. Free wifi, continental breakfast. Even provided comb, toothbrush. Room had a few maintenance issues but nothing serious. Room was spotless. For those needing to visit UCR this is a very good choice.

This is my second stay at this property. Nice room for the price. Surprisingly quiet. Very close to UCR. Staff is very friendly, breakfast includes freshly made waffles. Beds are very comfortable, plenty of pillows. Hotel provides toothbrush, tooth paste, razor, shave cream, mouthwash, shower cap, comb, soap, shampoo, shower gel and lotion. If you are looking for 5 star hotel, this is not the place for you, however if you want reasonable rates and unpretentious comfort you will be pleasantly surprised.

Very good place. We loved it. Brilliant location. service was very good. I would come here again if I want a clean place to stay. The breakfast here was also quite good. The rooms have all the basics you need for a short stay. Recommended.
