First of all, there is NO: iron, ironing board, hair dryer, or coffee pot. The room stinks like someone smoked 10 cartons of cigarettes in it. The carpet made my white socks dark brown----Clorox couldn't get that out! The entire room was dusty and dirty, I spent $50. on cleaning supplies and cleaned it right by myself----still stunk! front desk... More

My work set myself and a few other guys up for 3 weeks in this place. After the first few days I was about to find a local campground and stay in a tent. When I first got to my room it smelled like a homeless person had died in it. I went up to tell the front desk guy... More

I stayed here before I started using trip advisor. As my title indicates, I wasn't turned off by the place, but I also wasn't overly thrilled either. The beds were decently comfortable, the showers and bathroom area were clean and the overall cleaning was not bad. However, as the pictures show, the room was not in great repair. the bathroom...

Gross. Avoid at all costs. Dank, smelly, and tons of people that appear homeless. Wouldn't board my horse here much less human beings. I did not feel safe at all. Needs to be condemned, no joke. Smells of water damage/mold. I was fearful my car would be broken into. Save your money and go up the street.

I wish I could give a negative review. Worst motel I've ever been to. Owner and most staff are completely rude. Rooms are absolutely disgusting and stinky. The outside is just as bad, they had trash bags lying around, someones roof collapsed in while I was there too. I do not recommend spending your money on such a terrible place.... More

Kensington Inn isn't a horrible place to stay at. I've been reading other reviews of others stating how rude the staff is but honestly I've been staying there every year for close to 10 years now for a Paintball event and I have had nothing but good service from them. Any problems with the room have always been quickly taken... More

My room smelled of stale smoke. My sons room had to be changed because it smelled like a kitty litter box. When we changed his room the room's drapes had holes in them. My room had a bathroom sink that was cracked. Towels were fluffy and white.. Not updated in many years.

We had to stay here for work. The plan was to stay here a few weeks but my wife could only handle 5 days. They did have a full set of tv channels, the weekly rate is really affordable, and easy access to the freeway are all pluses. There are people who live there permanently because of the price and...
