“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We stayed at the santa clarita motel over thanksgiving while visiting our family. This was by far the best motel we have ever stayed in, and we practically live out of a suit case. let me just start by saying this is not a motel in any way shape or form, in ways this place was better than some so called boutique hotels. The check in process took about 5 minutes and we were pleasently surprised when we walked in to the room to say the least. it was newly renovated and had all the amenities you'd hope to find in a 5 star hotel. the bed was just as good as the one at our house if not better, The shower pressure was really good, The free wi-fi worked great and we really loved having a work desk / chair in the room as well as the recliner chair. The quirky decore of the room was the icing on the cake.

We would have liked to have the breakfast at the hotel but for 60$/ night we can't really complain, we have paid 100$ at a hilton and still had to pay 12$ for the breakfast. So we just decided to go to the I-Hop not too far from the hotel and use the money we saved at the hotel to get better breakfast than the free continental breakfast you get at the hotels which is stale donuts and crappy coffee anyway :)

We'll definatly be back over christmas.

The room was an excellent value. The staff here is always courteous and the bed quite comfortable. Visiting vehicle tuning house in the area so wouldn't have come here unless I knew my vehicle was safe.

You have to have really low standards to give this place a high rating. To me, cheap isn't enough; a place still has to be good. Maybe I'm just getting older and more demanding, but there is what appears to be blood on the sheets and bathroom wall, and I need to draw the line there.

We love this little Motel, our third time staying here. The owners are very nice and they do offer a danish and coffe in the morning in their office.The train noise was a pleasent treat and not too noisy. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean. And did I mention the GREAT price!
I wouldn't change a thing.
Mahalo Santa Clarita Motel!

We stayed one night here after visiting the Nethercutt Collection car museum. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and looked newly renovated. I would have liked a table and two chairs rather than the desk and office chair but there was a comfortable easy chair and footstool. The bedding was good quality but beware the mattress sliding on the shiny bed base and exposing a VERY sharp corner, I still have the bruises!

This is my 3rd time staying here in a 10 yr. period and it's mainly due to that I know my room should be quiet and clean - which it was. But for the price and with more competition, this motel lacks in all frills; no coffee, no breakfast, no Wi-Fi (they at least could offer that!) So for the value, among a high motel population, they need to up their game or lower their rates by about $15. These extras are not really a deal breaker for me, it's just that if others can offer them, this place should too,
