I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past with no issue. Rooms and price were fine. This was not the case at my visit this past weekend. I checked in and the lady at the front desk was very kind. Walk up to the room- room 267- and as I open the door I am immediately struck with the stench of tobacco smoke from cigarettes past. This is supposed to be a non-smoking room. I also notice the lamp shades are absolutely thrashed- looks sketchy and awful. These are things I was reluctant to let go- for a whopping $140 a night. There was what looked like mold in the window sill of the bathroom. The nail in the coffin was the live cockroach that paid me a visit as I stepped out of the shower. A LIVE COCKROACH!!! All within the first hour of my visit!!! I scream, fling that thing into the toilet and flush it. I go to the front desk and kindly explain that though I’m willing to put up with a lot, a cockroach is unacceptable. the lady informs me that they are fully booked and can not accommodate another room. She offered a refund, which was very kind- but ALL of the nearby hotels were fully booked too!!! I then find out that she has family suites available but only for a higher price of course. She told me the manager would be there in the morning. I went to the front desk in the morning and the gentleman told me no, he wasn’t the manager- the manager is “out of town”. I asked for a number to call and instead he gave me a piece of blank paper to “write down my concerns”. Not to mention- the ice machine was broken and we had to go across the street to another hotel for ice. I am extremely unhappy to have paid $140 to stay in such a terrible, disgusting room. As I said- my stays in the past we’re always fine. The fact that there was no resolution make me furious - Absolutely unacceptable. I had to spend the night in this filthy , tobacco smoke reeking place. The bed was extremely stiff and uncomfortable. Oh- and as we were leaving I noticed 2 cockroaches crawling around the now vacant building that used to be a Mexican restaurant.

9/4/20 Convenient area with food places and gas station nearby. This was a decent place to stay in for one night as my trip continued further north. I was greeted by friendly staff upon my arrival after 9pm. My room was 264, upstairs pool view. The room, sink area, and bathroom were clean. The bed had bright white clean sheets and pillows. There was a small fridge and microwave, which were useful for me, underneath the television stand. Overall, the place has seen its days, but it was a comfortable night’s stay for me. My only one complaint is to the facility: You must invest in rubber mats for the tubs. Even though I was being careful, I accidentally slipped and fell backwards and out of the tub, shower curtain and all, while showering. Although I could see some red marks and a small bruise on the side of my body the next day, the biggest bruise showed up today (3 days later) near my elbow, where I landed to avoid hitting my head. I did inform the male staff member when I checked out, and I also informed two housekeeping employees. Thank goodness I am alright. In the future, however, someone else may not.

Stayed in a king suite w/ a king and 2 queen beds, plenty of room for 3 people with their own beds ...all beds had clean sheets, blankets and comforter with plenty of pillows ...towels were clean and smelled like bleach. Floors looked clean too - dont know about these peoples complaints? Quiet place, decently located close to many restaurants and shopping. Breakfast isnt all that....but continental breakfast w/waffles is whats advertised & is what you get....no frills Front desk staff are personable and professional.... Clean, comfy motel rooms at a decent price and in a safe area - I would stay here again....my only complaint was tv and remote in back room werent working together so I watched the weather channel all night with no sound

Do not stay here! We tried to stay here the weekend of February 15th. It looks nice online but that's not what you get. Checked in to our room the first night and checked out 10 minutes later. Traveling with a toddler, safety is priority.... there were no locks on the window! Seriously? Staines on the couch, heater smelled like it had never been cleaned, the water heater kept ticking so sleep wasn't going to happen. When we checked out the lady at the desk didn't seem surprised at all. Now they are fighting me to refund a night we didn't stay. Ended up finding a much nicer place down the road at SLO. Please find another place of you are traveling to relax or with children.

The beds were disgusting, sheets had spots that were very questionable. Also, they were so old that you can see trough. The towels did not smell as they have been sanitized as any other decent hotel. They did have a heater, a noisy one, and there were no blankets available in the room. The office person when we check-in was not friendly at all. Breakfast was very sad.
