Stanlunds Inn and Suites
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Stayed here a dozen times over the last 15 years. It's the kind of motel that you can look outside of your room and see if your car is still there (quote from Bruce Springstein). Nice pool to hang out in. I stay in the rooms with kitchens. Pretty cheap and they really have to change the old carpet. Clean otherwise. Really old style place. I take the rooms with patios. This is a "one horse" motel and I really like it. We only stay here in summer and the airconditioning works fine.

This is an old style hotel but the rooms are very clean. We stayed at a room with kitchen. The kitchen is good size and the refrigerator is large. Nice private patio with table. Nice pool. Can park in front of your room. Good service. I would stay there again.

We had 2 rooms and were traveling with a dog. Previous TripAdvisor reviews had prepared us for the fact that Stanlunds is basic and a bit worn out, so we weren't at all unhappy with what we found. The staff were super (we arrived early and they made sure our rooms were ready as soon as possible) and the location is ideal. This place is far enough from the city lights to see the beautiful starry sky, and to hear coyotes howling.

A bit dated but that is the charm. Everything is clean and well maintained. We had a suite with a queen, a pull-out sofa, kitchen, and a patio w/ BBQ for $125. Continental breakfast starts @ 7:00am so get get some food before going out on you day's adventure!

Thanks to the owner - a great and personable guy!

Stanlunds has raised their price but not their standards since our last visit a few years ago. Furniture and bedding are worn, and rooms need a coat of paint. Basic breakfast (cereal, yogurt, coffee) in somewhat grim dining room. Heater worked, but was loud! Staff continues to be pleasant and helpful.

Stayed here for 1 night en-route from San Diego to Palm Springs. Typical motel style resort - series of single storey rooms custered around a swimming pool. Room was dark and very tired - needs renovation. Quite disturbing to find a 5 plug adapter plugged into wall and from it a coffee machine, fridge, air conditioner and other things were running. Bathroom adequate but again in need of updating - smallish shower stall, towels quite small. Good points were that is in quiet location and gave easy access to the nearby National Park.

Room Tip: Good budget stop but if you are looking to stay in area for more than 1 or 2 nights suggest trying t...

I have just returned from a stay at Stanlunds. My mother and I stayed there for 3 nights. The heater worked with the fan running continuously. So when the heat had reached the proper temp, the heater would stop but the fan would blow cold air on us. The bathroom heater didn't work. There wasn't a phone in the room. The continental breakfast was ok. The room it was located in was cold. We didn't have maid service the first day because the maids didn't show up until 3:30PM. The pool wasn't heated. I did notice that there wasn't a vacuum on the maids cart - so can't say if the carpet was vacuumed.
The good things I can say about it are: The water for morning showers was hot quickly. The refrig worked,

Thank you for your review. Guest review keeps us up to date on guest's expectation.
We were not notified about the air conditioner issue. The unit may be on continuous fan mode. It would have got fixed right away,if the staff was informed.
We never had phones in the room as most of our guest come for leisure and do not want to get disturb. Also everyone has cell phones now a days.
Regarding the cleaning of the room, we have housekeeping everyday and housekeeper leaves when they are done cleaning all rooms. Sometime it gets late to reach some rooms. There may be 'do not disturb' sign on the door, so our room may not have got housekeeping.
Also we have enough vacuum cleaner and two extra as backup. Our housekeeper vacuums every room they clean. If you did not see any vacuum cleaner on maid's cart, they may have taken to the office to get it fixed or changed the parts.
Once again thank you for your response and we will try our best to satisfy our expectation during your next stay.
