“At the price, it would be churlish to complain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

In the unlikely event that you find yourself in need of a place to stay in this neck of the woods, you won't be spoilt for choice. And you'll search in vain for 5-star luxury or chic boutique establishments. So we should be grateful for the mere existence of the California Motel. It certainly isn't fancy. In fact it's pretty basic. But the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the service is efficient and friendly. I've stayed at places charging far more than the $50 we paid for a room for three people where they haven't managed to get those essentials right.
