“A Nice Surprise”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Being a Marriott person, I was surprised at the decency of this Days Inn. This hotel has changed hands a few times, and when booking online it was originally advertised as the Comfort Inn which was a little confusing. The motel is located on a street full of hotels/motels. The hotel was undergoing some minor construction work but you would never know it and the workers were gone by dinnertime. The hotel has an indoor pool and Jacuzzi. The lobby was clean and Jeremy was very friendly. The lobby also has the complimentary continental breakfast which consisted of several types of muffins, a do-it-yourself waffle maker, apple and orange juice, bagels, coffee, tea, hot chocolate packets and milk. We reserved the suite which was on the second floor of two floors facing the parking lot and street. The room was a good size with a king-size bed, sofa, sink and bar sink, microwave, refrigerator and a large bathroom. It was very clean and bug-free. The bed was comfortable. The TV was modern. The furniture was clean and basically free of gauges and scrapes. We stayed here for 6 nights, went on to travel and came back for one more night before heading back home; that's how much we enjoyed staying here. The parking lot has security cameras as well. Sometimes we had problems with the card reader on the door, but management fixed it quickly. This hotel does a great job of keeping away transient people so no one was hanging around the hotel.

We stayed here one night while visiting the redwoods. All we wanted was a bed for the night and this more than did the job. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the complex was quiet. Shopping and restaurants are nearby. Breakfast was complimentary and actually quite good. We would stay again.

We were leery about staying here because next to it are hotels that are less desirable. It turned out that we extended our stay an extra day. The motel has an indoor swimming pool and indoor jaccuzi. Jeremy at the front desk was very receptive, friendly and really looked like he enjoys his job. We stayed in a suite which was large, very clean and the microwave and fridge worked perfectly. The king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is large in the suite. Every morning a continental breakfast is served and the tables were immediately cleaned after someone left. The food was constantly being replenished so you never had to wait for anything. There are no elevators, so if you struggle bringing luggage upstairs and downstairs, you may want to ask for a lower-level room. There are a couple of good restaurants in the shopping plaza down the street, as well as a Dollar Store, grocery store, hardware store and a Laundromat. Don't let the roughness of the area scare you away...we were safe and comfortable there, and there are closed-circuit cameras in the parking lot too.

Room Tip: We stayed at the "cul-de-sac" so to speak, on the second floor facing the main parking lot...

Experience was enjoyable. The room was fairly clean, spacious and equipped with a fantastic showerhead. The room was more than satisfactory. Staff was cordial and treated us well. I did chuckle though that the refrigerator and microwave were a focal point as you entered the front door instead of being in the back of the room nearer to the sink area.
