We are seniors, and had made reservations for ground floor room. They had our ground floor room ready for us on check in day. Little did I know I would twist my knee on a day excursion. They were so kind, they got us into a handicap room so I could feel safe in the shower, and toilet area. Toni,...

I reserved online two weeks prior to arriving. When I checked in that day I was told there were only Smoking rooms available and that if I'd wanted non-smoking, I should have specified that. There was no prompt that asked Smoking vs. Non on the reservation site. This is 2016 in California. Non-smoking is a reasonable default assumption. If the...

We stayed here on a roadtrip up to Anacortes,WA from Los Angeles. Far better of the two Motel 6 locations at which we stayed (the other being Everett South, north of Seattle). It may be updated, but it's still a Motel 6 so don't expect the world. New pergo floors are a plus, check-in was super easy and friendly. We...

Very very basic motel in fact the most basic I've ever came across!! As previous guests indicated no coffee machine, no fridge or microwave and you have to pay for wifi however it was a quick stop for us and all we wanted was a bed to sleep after a long day. The bedding wasn't the best, sheets had seen...

Clran, tidy and freshly painted room. Modern bathroom. Spacious, with lots of room to move around. Furniture is very basic: bed, small table and two chairs, counter top and two shelves, flat screen TV. Wi-fi costs extra. No coffee machine or fridge. Bare wooden floors. Check in staff very pleasant. Sound insulation is poor so you have constant noise from...

Clean and quiet -- which is what I wanted. I did have a problem with smoke in the hallway one evening. Cable TV with HBO. WiFi ($2.99 a day - free for AARP members) worked well -- and the one time it didn't a quick call to tech support fixed the issue. Near the freeway and a grocery store as...

This hotel was clean and neat as stated. And the cheapest price in the area, but there where no frills and I mean zero. Room came equipped with towels and that was it. Upon entering the room we found nothing but towels and a tv. No coffee maker, No hair dryer, was barley enough tp to use the bathroom, had...

Here's the deal. We were driving from Yachats to Sinson Beach (12 hour trip ) and needed and overnight stop over. According to my parents-in-law the place was reasonably priced and spotless. Partner took this advice and booked a room . You know because we're on A BUDGET AND THIS WILL SAVE US $20. I prefer Best Western . Cue...

Our stay was fantastic. I lived there almost 25 years ago and was extremely surprise to see how much the town had changed. With so many businesses and shops added to the general area I was afraid that would also bring an aire of Corporate America to a once conscious community. We were treated with respect and the hotel amenities...
