great place to stop on a road trip through the area. Best choice for value as you travel North from Los Angeles. Breakfast is included - waffles, fruit, pastries and scrambled eggs. Restaurant in on site.

I had a pleasant stay here. Teresa at the front desk was very kind and helpful. The room I stayed in had an awesome spacious bathroom and the beds and furniture were clean and tidy. Cheap places to buy food nearby. 5/5

My husband and I stayed here in July visiting a friend. What I like most about this place was the huge bathroom with a beautiful vanity. There were 3 mirrors and you can angle it to your liking. In that lavatory you will find a closet with long length mirror (right beside the vanity), also the toilet is closed off... More

I had a reservation for a disabled room. I checked in around 4:00 PM and, before looking at the room, went to run an errand. When I returned 1) the room was very close to the street (which is extremely busy / noisy); 2) there were no disabled parking spaces anywhere near the room (I don't mean available...I mean AT...

We were on our way from Palm springs to Monterey. This hotel had good reviews and seemed a reasonable price compared to other hotels in the area. I was a good choice, the room was clan and comfortable and my wife appreciated the very large bathroom with a separate toilet.

We have been staying at this hotel for many years now on trips from WA. All the staff are friendly and provide great assistance.

Bad breakfast choice, uninformed guest service, no regards for Diamond status and horrible internet. Room was clean and quiet. bed was super comfortable. Too expensive for the value of money. Maybe there aren't better hotels around but have stayed at much better Best Westerns
