This hotel was not in great condition. The guy at check in was nice enough, but the hotel lacked in comfort. The hotel chain must have a minimum requirement for furniture irregardless of room size. It had all the required items, but they were stacked on top of each other and there was barely room to move around in. See...

After spending the entire day on the road from Orange County to rescue my daughter and her stranded car to get her to Berkley I was pleasantly surprised by this small motel. Pleasant staff, smallish but nice clean quiet room, and free breakfast. At a very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to stay again.

A super Inn with a great breakfast bar. The room was well appointed , the bathroom granite counter top, daily USA Today, and friendly check in staff. The beds were firm and plush, with plenty of pillows. In room refrigerator too. Plenty of hangers and an iron.

The room was a bit small and older. For ladies who use plug in hair products, there was not much room around the sink to set things on. (Vanity outside the bathroom.) The breakfast is pretty basic. The parking lot is small. The location is great for walking around the the area. I did not feel unsafe. There is a...

We had a newly refurbished room, a quiet night's sleep, a very nice Buffett breakfast, and a friendly staff. And free parking. We'd not hesitate to return. And, considering the location, the price was very affordable. The pool area also looked clean,and had umbrella - covered tables, but we only saw it from afar.

Cons are the limited car park lots, and very small breakfast room with only 4 small tables, and their rates are high too. Limited eateries around the...
