The room is spacious and comfortable I had a great night's rest and it was much needed after Disneyland. I'm not picky I was personally just looking for a bed and a shower and I got a great deal on this hotel

The room was very nice, clean and neat. The manager was really helpful when we couldn't get the tv to work. He came right up and got it on for us. We will definitly stay here again. We highly recommend it.

Ok if you just need to rest for a few hours. Curtains were partially off the rod and floors were not clean. Small beds but they were comfortable enough. A plus for the room is that it had a ceiling fan. Other party traveling with our group just had a hole in the ceiling. Not sure I would stay here... More

This was a good value place to stay on our journey to Los Angeles. We stayed in June 2016 and only half of the rooms had been refurbished, we had two refurbished rooms. They were clean, the air conditioning worked well and the wifi was great. The breakfast was non-existent -cold coffee, no fruit, no pastries, no hot chocolate etc...... More

The bed is fine and the room is clean. Forget about the breakfast. It is not eatable and the cleaniness is questionable. The location the highway is excellent. The pool is next to the parking place and the road?? The Motel is undergoing some facelifting, so perhaps it will become more attractive. The furnitures are of older heritage. The price... More
