The room was not too bad but the area leaves a lot to be desired - it is not the sort of area you would feel safe to walk around late at night to be truthful we stacked our 3 suite cases against the door as when we parked up it was late and there were some people sitting outside...

This place is now Watsonville Inn. My parents booked 3 rooms here; 1 for my hysband, me & family, & two others. We were coming to town a day earlier. When we arrived, the man behind the counter (middle eastern) was not friendly from the start. He said he didn't have a reservation for me. I gave him my dad's...

First of all, the lady at the front is extremely RUDE! When checking in, she charged us seperately for the room & $10 for the extra person. She swiped my card three times as I watched her press the 'cancel' button on the machine. She then said that it would not take my credit card & that I had to...

We booked a one night stay at the Valley Inn through Hotwire. When we got into our room, the door didn't have a deadbolt. I went down to talk with the manager and he told me not to worry and that we will be safe. He offered no solution. Then there was the stained chairs and linens. The furniture had...

This room was beyond awful. All linens had dirt or stains on them. The mattresses were broken down, we both had sore backs in the morning, when we woke up in the morning we could not believe the filth...the box springs looked like they had been picked up off the road somewhere. The screen in the bathroom was so thick...

During last 2 months, we stayed in Valley Inn for more than 3 nights with our family. Each time we got a different room. We found a place very family friendly, quiet and comfortable for us and for our kids.Rooms were clean with comfortable bed. All amenities were working fine. Great value for money and very centrally located for trips...

We unfortunately did not get to pick the hotel exactly when we booked through Hotwire and were shocked by what we saw when we arrived. The carpet had more stains then we could count. The toilet seat had busted and had been taped back with clear tape. There was so much stuff stuck to the tile and wall, door, behind...
