I stayed at the Highlander for a night and I really liked my room, apparently they rooms there are new. When I got there I was really regretting booking a place there but as soon as I got inside the room I calmed down. The staff was very helpful too.

To check in, you had to have yourself buzzed in by a not so friendly desk clerk. The room was clean but very shabby. The bed was as hard as a rock, but the TV worked well. The neighborhood was pretty rough, so we left nothing in our room while we went to our event. I would not recommend this...

I've spent two nights in this motel. Very good price for what you get. Also, the staff was very helpful, the owner drove us with his own car to the train station, when we went to visit San Francisco;)
