Within 5 minutes of checking in you can smell the mould and dirt. Don't bother asking the staff to help, they will always say the motel is full, despite x1 other vehicle being here. no refund, but hey, here's a bottle of ultra sized air fewshnes so you can drown in chemicals while you breathe in mould. it's not hard to get cleanliness right, and to reinvest small margins of income to maintenance... but this place does not seem to care. Also, it's literally surrounded by trash dumpsters and fences. drive on if you can.

Reasons We had a non-smoking room that you could tell had been smoked in. The dead bolt for door did not work had to put ice chest and luggage against door in hopes no one could come in the room. Window was hard to open not able to get alot of air in room. They do not have a/c just a box fan that is so loud hard to sleep. Blankets had cigarette burns in them,carpet was stained and barely vacuumed,dead roaches in dresser drawers. Bathroom shower had mold in it and the floor tile was dirty and under the sink where more tile should have been was a large concrete slab with dust all over it. No exhaust fan and the window wouldn't open,towels looked like they had never been washed. There was a chair you couldn't even sit in due to the digusting large stains on it. Mini refrigerator had not been defrosted and it was not clean. Microwave had dried food stuck to the sides. TV remote worked when it wanted too and there was no smoke alarm. Went down to front desk to tell them we wanted a different room but was told they were booked. Ask for charges to be reversed on my credit card so we could find another place to stay but they said we would still be charged for the room. Forget about any breakfast just coffee and pastries that you can buy at 7-11 and they don't serve this until 7:30. Had to bang on office door so we could check out and lady motioned me to side window I gave her the room keyes and when I ask for a printed receipt she was very rude. This place looks like it charges by the hour for other uses. Cost for this dump is way over priced cost us $233.00. If we had room in our truck we would have slept in it. The name should be changed to No Tell Roach Motel.

I would not recommend the American Inn to any one at any price. I stayed in room 121. There are holes in wall that are poorly patched. The bathroom door is broken and has visual screws holding it together. There is a hole in the bathroom floor. The hot water is the cold and cold water is the hot. The shower doesn't spray, it works like a garden hose. There is mold above the shower. There is a chair that is so stained that I would not sit in it. The light switches are stained and dirty. There is no Pride of Ownership in this property. It is a shame that properties like this are allowed to be in business!

On our way from LA to San Francisco we had one stop. The motel is clumsy and disgusting. It's seems dirty and it's way over-priced. The value is about USD 40-50. The staff is wired. I am surprised that you can run a motel like that.

Booked on hotels.com and when I arrived they claimed they didn't have my reservation and tried to charge me again. Front desk attendant is an Indian, reeked of stupidity and curry, and took 40 minutes to get reservation straightened out. Then the room doesn't even have A/C and shower didn't work. Could've just camped for free, but no- paid for this ridiculous experience. Do NOT STAY HERE!
