It was a good stop over place while traveling up the coast. Nothing exceptional but a good clean room. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location worked great for us to quickly get in and out the next day.

This is not a corporate hotel. Very dirty. Painted to look attractive. Stay far away. Not trying to be harsh but I’ve stayed at Motel 6 that was in better order. Do your homework, read reviews. This is NOT family friendly. This is the “I’m in town to party and don’t care where I

Good value, central location and clean. We had a two bedroom suite for our family (two small kids). The only thing that let it down was the receptionist allowing what appeared to be her extended family (sister, son and niece I believe) to use the pool. When we got there they had

Our bathroom when we checked in. How could housekeeping miss this?
"choose another place to sleep"
"Try for 1315 - nice view of the hills."
"Make sure what you book printed on your receipt is what you get when you check in."
