“Nice place to stop while traveling through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

When traveling through I look for a clean hotel, comfortable bed, convenient location to Hwy for a reasonable price. This place has it all. I arrived late and tired and was happy the desk clerk checked me in quickly and he was very friendly. I was happy with everything about the room especially the comfortable bed. Easy in, great sleep and easily back on the road...that's value in itself, but I was also happy with the price of the room. Great experience.

Stayed here last summer and overall I was pleased with my stay. Rooms are fairly clean but ours felt a little claustrophobic because the bed took up the majority of the room. Not a huge deal though. There was a little back room with a desk, couch, and a window ceil that looked like it hadnt been dusted in years. Lots of bugs outside but didnt see any in my first floor room. It was nice to have the car parked right outside the door. The breakfast is nothing special. It was a good place to spend a night on our road trip for the price.

A clean/safe location if you are having to use the Amtrak Station. This lodging is conveniently within walking distance to/from the nearby train/local transit/Greyhound Bus station ... which is referred to as the Alvarado Transportation Center

Room Tip: Tip re: service. Need to ask for couple packets of coffee as housekeeping will only leave one packet...

When I walked in, the front desk lady i believe her name was Sangeeta. She was so graceful understanding, very clear, and helpful. The rooms are great as well, but the staff is amazing, I believe the heaters could be a bit more efficient, they were clean but had a horrendous smell to them. The only reason I would come back is for the staff and my family loved her, she greeted her so well. Place to go.

Unfortunately, these folks were very rude. I reserved a room online and the woman at the front desk asked if we had already paid...of course that sets off alarm bells in our heads...she didn't know if we owed her or not? I entered in our debit card number and security code online and assumed that it was paid for when we got a confirmation number. Turns out it was only a reservation...which was fine except she gave us the worst attitude when we were confused. I really don't know why she was so upset with us...but from the smell of the lobby it seemed like we were interrupting their dinner (we could hear other people in the room behind her desk). I would never spend money at this place again. The room was decent but not worth the condescending attitude.

I will continue to stay at this great motel! I made my reservations early in the year & even requested a certain room. As expected there were no problems what so ever! The property was clean & well kept. The manager/owner is a delight. Our room (108) was warm & comfortable. Being disabled I especially love the large bathroom (not handicapped accessible). The housekeeping ladies were a delight to talk to. It was very quiet the whole week we were there. Thank you again. We will be seeing you again next visit. :)

This is a basic 2-story motel, with exterior corridors and all rooms overlooking the parking lot. Amenities are sparse: when I went to front desk to ask for hangers or a luggage rack, the response was that rack not available and no hangers other than what was in room were available. When I stated that there were NO hangers in the room, the clerk did manage to rustle up 4 hangers as requested. Breakfast was just the basics: cereal, mini muffins, apples or bananas, OJ, coffee. I would not feel safe walking in the neighborhood after dark. One morning there was a homeless person sleeping by the vending machine right outside the office. We stayed 3 nights; did not have housekeeping either morning. The 1st morning was excuseable; we had Do Not Disturb sign out from 10 – 12 while we were napping so we missed the window of housekeeping. But next day we put out the sign requesting Maid Service when we left for the day at 9; was disappointed when we returned that evening to see that no housekeeping had been provided. Would not stay here again.
