The nice lady behind the counter asked that I review them on TripAdvisor and Yelp - but I had intended to anyway.
This motel is no frills, comfortable, quiet, clean - - and the next day I realized, friendly. It is interesting how a "Have a Nice Day" goes a long way. I booked the motel through Priceline, was looking for just one night's stay - as I had an early morning exam in San Diego and I was coming from LA.
The checkin was lightning fast which was awesome because I really had to pee after my drive. I also needed to study, and the place was very quiet and comfortable. Four large fluffy pillows that I propped up, with the flatscreen TV on low volume. Slept like a baby with a cool breeze wafting in my open window. Again, no sound even though I know there were residents right next door.
Next morning I discovered they had guest laundry facilities, which I took advantage of. Saw the grounds better, clean, green, well manicured lawns about. Price for laundry on par, no taking advantage. Had single use detergent and dryer sheets for purchase if interested.
Went for my free coffee and muffins, which really hit the spot. Again, nothing fancy but very comforting and good. Coffee fresh. I waited a bit to talk to someone about wi fi, as I was not able to get on the night before. She apologized and said there was a password. As I left with my coffee, she said "Have a Nice Day" with sincerity... I know, I know. It's ridiculous that this should not be a staple in customer service, but it isn 't.
Finally, when I checked out, she was concerned that I only had the small room. I was unaware, but I really didn't care. It was perfect, which I told her. It was so quiet and comfy it was just what the doctor ordered.
I plan on being back to hit some breweries. This is where I will stay, no doubt.
