Clean room, grumpy manager. We arrived at 5 pm and could smell his dinner from back room. He didn't give us any information about breakfast, checkout, etc. as we checked in. Lots of kids running in hallways in evenings. Pool looked nice and clean.

It is definitely NOT a five star. The property needs to be upgraded, but overall it was quiet and you get value for your money. The continental breakfast was not something to rave about (the simplest form: stale coffee, sugary cereal, toast, bagels, no butter or cream cheese) but luckily there is an IHOP right in front of the hotel....

If you wish to stay near Knott's Berry Farm, Rodeway Inn is the closest motel to the front gates, where you can park for free, and there is plenty of eating options next to the motel car park including Subway and IHOP, while McDonalds is directly across the road. The free breakfast is also appreciated, although it is pretty basic,... More

This hotel is in a great location. Across the street from Knotts Berry Farm. Its outdated, worn down, and super ghetto. But its cheap. You get what you pay for. They had smoking rooms which is nice. Our window was open when we got to the room. No screen and a stick to use to lock the window. Rap blaring... More

Friends and I traveled to Cali for my friends 21st birthday. We chose this hotel because it is a choice hotel and I am a choice employee. Our intention for the hotel room was a place to get ready for bar hopping after hitting the beach in the early morning. It suited our needs just fine, although the shower pressure... More

Dozens of hotels in the area, but this one is directly across the street from Knotts, so nothing I say will make any difference, as they will likely sell out rooms no matter what I say. There seems to be zero pride of the staff here. Basically, it is a clean, decent, relatively inexpensive place. It is somewhat dirty and... More

Place is somewhat marginal for a Choice property. The public areas visibly need cleaning and sprucing up. It does have an OK pool, and hot tub. Our room was small, neat and clean. Easy parking, very convenient. Breakfast was a minimal Continental.

This place is ok...not fancy and decent price but don't expect breakfast other than toast......and its old and a bit run down.,.but again......good price for Orange county, CA. I was out here for a family outing and needed inexpensive lodging......it served its purpose. A coat of paint would work wonders! Also, they rarely add your frequent stay points so stay... More

It's really nice hotel but the wifi doesn't work at all.i have read about this problem through out the reviews but still doesn't work.if they fix it I think it will be perfect stay.for a business trip I don't think I will stay there again due to the fact I can't access the Internet .

Thank you for refering us as a nice hotel. We do have a 100 mbps wi-fi and it was working well for all of our other guests, it must have been something temporary. And thank you very much for staying with us again. We appreciate your confidence in our ability to serve you. More
