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

So, seemed OK for just a place to get some rest....friendly front desk...but we were assigned to a room at the far end of complex, underneath second level stairs. Seemed like that's where everyone staying there seemed to be grouped...Guy above us dealing drugs out of his car...up and down the stairs all night. Couple next to us arguing...on and... More

This place had a nice room, away from the main road so it was nice and quiet. The price was super cheap, and the location is awesome if you are heading to LA from San Francisco or Monterey. We were coming down from San Francisco via Monterey on route to LA, so this was perfect, just 2 minutes drive from... More

Needed a stop over point on a road trip. I was arriving late and leaving early. The price was right 😀. I figured it would be shabby and sad.

Stayed the night on the way to Sacramento California from Pheonix Arizona. Ground floor room had been recently remodeled .... and in my opinion not quite complete. Good price and convenient location. Not many choices for eating. An IHOP and Jack in the Box.
