“Great for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a very nice place to stay for the night I have stayed here twice and both experiences were great. The people were very nice the rooms were clean I mean they are no holiday inn express but no bugs the water runs tv works bed were comfortable enough to sleep. I did bring my own pillows and towels cause all hotels have small towels. Breakfast bagels/toast spread cereal coffee nothing big is very close to carls jr and to corner stores. Parking is real tight but if people knew how to park it wouldn't be as bad but that is the people not hotel. Pool is very small if that is important to you go somewhere else. There is no plastic on the bed I had rooms 222 and 224 single king bed o yeah no couch or anything you get what you get if you need room for 3 get a 2 bed and soap is in a dispenser I would bring my own toilet paper is one ply. Like I said is a great place to stay the night but not move in.

My husband and I stopped here in June 2012. I understand the complaints about the sensor lights and the soap dispenser on the wall. I hated both, especially the lights but I didn't have a problem with plastic on the bed or cleanliness. Both seemed fine to me. The breakfast was bad coffee and packaged danish and the pool was very tiny but the staff was very nice and I've certainly seen far worse. I didn't think it was bad at all.

What other people said!, Light sensors that would not turn off, beds wrapped in plastic that slid all night, carpet dirty!! would not let the kids go barefoot. Table was dirty had to wipe it off with the Lysol wipes I brought, just ewww. Pool and spa were dirty, you could see the dirt on the bottom. Staff was nice tho.

Name me one other hotel in the world that relies solely on light sensors in the room, with no way of manually turning them off? And beds wrapped in plastic that were as hard as a rock? Or carpets with stains on the floor and so dingy that I felt uncomfortable walking around barefoot. How about after 2 rooms, blankets with holes in them? And a door you had to manually lift up on just to lock the deadbolt? The only reason we stayed the nugget was because my partner was dead to the world. Never again.

This hotel was rated 2 stars by AAA - I'll inform them to check into this. The door to our room would not lock, the curtains would not pull together. The room was dark, there were not enough towels - soap consisted of push buttons in the wall. The mattresses were covered in plastic that rustled loudly whenever you moved. "Landscaping" was dirt and mud. The pool was tiny, tiny - there were 3 people in it and it looked full. The desk clerk recommended a place for dinner that was closed. The last straw was the vending machine right outside the lobby door with condoms in it!

While driving from Phoenix to San Francisco for the first time, I wanted to find accommodations that were about halfway and Castaic seemed to fit the bill. The Castaic Inn advertised itself as "newly remodeled" and as far as the rooms went, I suppose that was true. However, there were a few problems. The parking lot is horribly cramped -- there are signs to "park within the lines" but the spaces are so tight that once parked, it's a real challenge to try to squeeze out of your car. The landscaping is non-existent. I only mention this because there was a sprinkler system generating mud in what were probably once flower beds. Our first room smelled strongly of cleaning fluid (they told us the rugs had just been shampooed) so the nice desk clerk quickly gave us a new (and better-smelling) room. Beds were comfortable, but were still covered in the plastic packages that they were shipped in, so we had the feeling of sliding around whenever we shifted. When we asked the desk clerk about this, he replied, "That's the way the owner wants it." Advertised "continental breakfast" was very limited -- weak coffee, bagels, cold cereal. No half-and-half for the coffee. Oddly, there was only one table in the middle of the tiny lobby, so if you wanted to sit there (as opposed to lugging everything back to the room, you stood around awkwardly and waited for whomever was already sitting to finish. Back to the "newly remodeled" room. The phrase "spare no expense" obviously hadn't crossed the owners lips because everything was falling off of the walls (hair dryer, shower rod, towel bar). The plusses -- convenient to I-5 -- it's right there at the exit. Looking at the main drag of Castaic, I'm not sure if there was anything better -- If we'd known better we would have probably hauled ourselves to Bakersfield (it was a larger dot on the map) but it was at least another hour drive longer.
