My daughter & I stayed here for 1 night over Labor Day weekend...staff was very accommodating & friendly, but we had to ask for a second set of towels. Room was relatively clean, but no literature in the room to tell how to run anything or even a TV guide, or information on local sites. Only 1 tiny garbage can... More

We made our reservations in May, 2016. We didn't have a lot of choices in this area because rooms at the better motels/hotels were already booked for these dates. I read the reviews and chose this place because it sounded like the best available at the time. After reading the most current reviews, I have to agree with most of... More

The manager was very nice and accommodating and we appreciated it. Our AC didn't work and she gave us another room to sleep in and not have to move our belongings! Thank you! If we return to the area, we would definitely stay again.

After the stay I had a problem with the invoices. The woman who answered the phone and said she was a manger is the rudest person I have spoken to in a long time. I would like to speak to someone above her. I can’t believe she is the only manager I can speak with. She hung up on me... More

I booked a Standard King room (as seen on reservations.com) a month prior to our trip. When we arrived we were given a room with a Queen bed. Went to the office and the young woman switched us to a room with two doubles. All was well except the AC only blew warm air. As we left for dinner around... More

Warm friendly atmosphere, easy access accommodations and very nice people. Clean room, king size comfortable bed and morning continental breakfast goodies. It's by the freeway, but you really don't notice.

I stayed here while I was visiting friends. I was amazed how clean and modern my room was. The staff is friendly. So what if you don't get a full breakfast buffet. There are places you can go to eat located nearby. With this motel, you can't beat the clean room and the price. I will stay there again on... More

This is a two star hotel; yes, but it should be a three. My wife and I always read reviews on Trip Advisor before we choose a hotel. We had misgivings about the North Bay Inn because some reviews said the bed was lumpy and the freeway noise is loud. But the price was right for our budget $123 including... More

Located along a busy frontage road of 101 and in an industrial area surrounded by a seedy residential area the motel itself isn't too bad. Many of the customers seem to be contract construction workers. I did not feel safe walking around the area at night. It is spotlessly clean and has been updated. However it lacks sufficient electrical outlets.... More

We came here having read other reviews that echo the same sentiment. For the reasonable price, the only downside is that it is near a freeway. That was not problem for me or my wife while sleeping...the traffic sound much like the seashore. The room itself was very clean, modern and thoughtfully appointed, roomy, an AMAZING bed, and all around... More
