I have stayed at this motel twice now. The first time, we were placed in one of their newly remodeled rooms and it definitely compared to a 2 ½ to 3 star hotel (only missing the iron and ironing board – I suspect I could have requested one if I really needed it). The beds were incredibly comfortable and I slept well. If they had their own onsite restaurant, they could call themselves a hotel.
The second time I stayed here, I was in one of their yet-to-be remodeled rooms and it was still a decent room worth the price. The bed was a little harder and the air conditioning was a bit louder but it was certainly not an inconvenience.
Lobby/Staff: The lobby was very clean and well maintained. Each and every member of the staff we encountered were genuinely friendly and concerned about our needs.
Rooms: Both rooms I stayed in had 2 queen beds and were quite spacious. Additionally, all rooms must be entered through secured hallways with a room key. There is no direct access from parking lot to room. The rooms are quiet and comfortable.
Internet: This motel offers free internet. The front desk agent will give you the security password to get online.
Parking: There is ample parking though it may be a short walk from the elevator or stairs.
Location: This motel is located off of the California St. Exit of the Hwy 99. Go west I block to Real Rd and go almost 1 block down. Turn into the driveway for the Carl’s Junior parking lot and the lobby will be directly ahead. (You can go down to Chester Ln and turn right but it definitely out of the way). It is far enough off the freeway where you do not hear the freeway traffic but close enough that you can be back on the Hwy 99 within 2 – 3 minutes.
Restaurants in the area: Carl’s Jr., Mc Donalds, Marie Calendar’s, Sizzler and more.
TIP: Try to stop at a Denny’s Restaurant before checking in and pick up one of the discount hotel coupon books in the lobby. Call the motel to see if they have availability to honor that rate. Bring the book in with you for the reduced rate. We got two queen beds for 2 – 4 occupants for $49.95.
