We got a good deal for a holiday weekend and drove up from LA. The motel is centrally located in a residential area with no need for a car. I was disappointed that our room did not have a refrigerator or microwave, but the staff was more than happy to store our leftovers and rice milk in theirs. They also microwaved our left overs the next day. The room was clean and there's lots of storage. We stay here a lot and love the Joie de Vivre chain.
