Stayed here 3 nights while visiting my family...although the hotel and room were very worn...the room was clean, the bed was very comfy, and the staff were very nice. Will stay here again next year. Fridge in room and great wifi (which we appreciated).

It's not a very luxurious hotel, but it's average and has the necessities for a simple night. Bedroom was clean, bathroom was clean, parking was alright, the receptionist that checked me and my darling in was very sweet and talkative, it feels like a private stay, but we could still hear neighbors talking and conversing.

The wonderful woman at the front desk helped me locate a restaurant that I wanted to go to. And her English was worse than mine and she made it happen when I couldn't. The room was fantastic. Very comfortable, clean, and up to date. I would definitely stay again. I had one small problem with the lady next door that... More

It took a while to find this hotel because the street, Mechanical Blvd, has two access points from Hwy 70 which don't connect but once you find it, it's a sloppy place to be.Updates needed and even after 4 pm, rooms were still being cleaned and the general appearance of the place was untidy. Access to rooms seems unsafe, long... More

The room is decent, it was clean, has refrigerator. Bed slept well. The breakfast is very slim picking. The seating area only has 4 tables and it's a tight squeeze. If I was asked, you really need to make the breakfast area somewhere else.

This is a cheap place to stay and is clean and safe. The only problem with our room was that it smelled of cigarettes even though it was a non smoking room. Okay for a night but I wouldn't stay longer than that.

My husband and I stayed here for one night after a concert. It was clean, spacious, and very close to Walnut Creek. For the price you can't beat it! I wouldn't make this hotel a vacation destination, but for a place to lay your head for the night, it's perfect.

So we stopped here at 9pm at night, and got a room. We dropped our stuff off in the room and went and got late dinner since we had been traveling for 9hrs. We got back about 11:30pm to the room, and we were shocked at what we saw. There were stains on the bed cover which appeared to be... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night, while staying in garner to attend a show at the Walnut Creek Amphitheater. The location of this hotel, compared to the price for the night was great. The hotel was close enough to the amphitheater, as well as plenty of options for a quick bite to eat as well as some shopping... More
