Stayed 3 nights late July 2012 for a church conference in the area. The room was clean and spacious. I liked the fact that the sink was outside the bathroom to maximize usage. One could shower while another brush their teeth. There was ample and secure parking space. The stay included a simple breakfast that offered eggs, sausages, apples, milk, juice, coffee, cereals (2 types), white & brown sliced bread, bagels, small danishes and muffins. I LOVED the waffle maker. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return again.
Oh for those light sleepers, the motel is close to highway 1, so you will hear some traffic. We didn't mind because it was closely located to our conference location. Also Best Buy & Target is just across the street. There are Burger Kin, MacDonald and other restaurants in the area. A bit further there are the Mercer Mall (TJ Maxx) and Quake Bridge Mall (Macy). The second mall is under renovation so the stores are a bit sparse for the moment until I guess September.
Driving note: You have turn right and then line up to turn left in the direction that you would like to go to. This way you don't hold up traffic. For example, exiting from the motel, and if you want to get to Target which is across the street, you must turn right at the first possible road, then line up at the light to be able to turn left.
Two negatives this time:
1. wifi: It was barely there. I tried two names that they gave me. I still couldn't get on to the wifi.They do offer a desktop at the reception but after showering, I wanted to check my emails in the comfort of my room.
2. Bed: one of the beds was too soft. Maybe it's time to update to a new mattress.
3. Air conditioning. We stayed on the first floor last year and it was very hot but the a/c seemed to work just fine. This time being on the 2nd floor and compounded by another humid day, we found the a/c wasn't helping us to cool down.
Try to get rooms that are away from the highway to lessen the truck traffic noises.
