The kindest staff. They really take care of their customers. The rooms are clean, safe, and an hour away from LA. A great place to come and get a taste of the Mojave wind... one of the most relaxing stays ever.

We had a very good experience here and are surprised to read some negative reviews. We turned up late in the evening (had phoned earlier to check availability) and were very pleased to find spotlessly clean room with fridge (new), microwave, effective air conditioning (a tad noisy but fine), comfy bed, clean sheets, towels etc ... all we needed and...

I'm travelling on a budget so I don't have high expectations from overnight stays but there are limits. Pretty much the only thing I care about is cleanliness. Everything else is a bonus. This motel doesn't deliver even bare necessities. The room was basically a dump. All of the provided towels had staines. When I asked for new ones they... More

We stayed one night on our way to Vegas, before going trough the Death Valley national park. It was cheap, clean and quiet. Perfect for that one night stop. I would recommend not to expect much for breakfast, it was minimal but the rest was ok...

We arrived around midnight, it was freezing outside but the owner didn't let us in to the reception area to fill the check-in papers and to pay - we were pushed to stay outside for about 15 minutes in 19F (-7C). The room was very cold and all the furniture and fittings were old (some also broken). A/C was ridiculously... More

Good little place. It was nice for such a small motel. We had a good night, not much noise, affordable prices. Even if there is not much things to do nearby, the inn is a good place to stay if you want to make a break on the road.

I should have paid more attention to the pictures and some of the other reviews - but I had stopped at the nr.1 ranking and the good price, and booked it. Oh what a surprise it was when we drove up to the property! By that time we were locked in, as cancellations are not possible with less than 24... More

Very economical clean adequate and friendly reception. Well situated by the main strip lots of parking space, moderate sized rooms with good shower and clean bathroom. A/c slightly noise. Definitely recommended. Try the hotel 15mins walking distance for a bar meal.

I thought there was nothing worse than dozing off after a long day only to have noises from the water pipes loudly awaken us, then repeat every 10 minutes until we gave up and decided to get moving. Then I got into the shower only to be scalded when someone flushed a toilet within five rooms of us. Clearly a... More

Everything is comfortable and more than adequate. Considering the choices in this town, this one is by far the best. We ate dinner at Anthony's Grill--great Mexican food! There's a McDonalds about 1/4 mile from the motel. Even Denny's has a good breakfast (no breakfast at the motel but there is coffee in the lobby and a coffee maker in... More
