“Dirty little brothel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2010

Unless you are looking to pick up hookers for a night, avoid this motel at all costs. It is in a run down area with hordes of hookers on the prowl. Rooms are not very clean or pleasant and no decent restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Definitely not suitable for people with children. Also worst breakfast in a Choice Hotel.

We (3 adults and 2 children) stopped here for the night after spending all day in Yosemite. The front desk people (I think they are the owners) were wonderful, going far beyond what one would expect to make sure we were all comfortable. The area has little to offer, although there are a few eating places down the road. A good place to stop off for a nights rest.

The room and bathroom were both clean clean. No frills and great considering the price. Service was good the attendant was willing to give us anything we needed. Rooms were big and spacious. Free wireless Internet. It was right off the 99 so we could get on and off the freeway quickly. I Definately would encouage anyone to stay the night. I had a good experience.

The room was not clean when we checked in. Toenail clippings were scattered on the floor around the beds, and the shower floor was covered in grime and hair. The sheets were clean, which is the only reason my exhausted colleague and I didn't leave right away.

The second day, the water was completely shut off for a few hours. We couldn't flush the toilet or wash our hands.

The room was not cleaned the following day, so we had to reuse dirty towels. The toenail clippings remained on the floor for the entire stay. Every evening, a few guys were partying in the parking lot, blaring music from their truck for about an hour. Two arrests occurred on the sidewalk in front of the hotel during our three-night stay. Highway noise penetrated the walls.

The "breakfast" was a pile of tiny, greasy muffins and burned coffee.

Go ahead and stay here if you are desperately exhausted on your drive up Highway 99 and don't expect to shower. Don't stay there if you expect to find a clean, comfortable room and want a hot shower.

Basic, functional, no frills overnight stay on our way to Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park. We arrived late (past midnight). However, the night bell wasn't working, so I had to call the night reception on my cell phone. A minor annoyance, as it was a little worrisome that the reception area was all dark and it looked as if we might not get our rooms for the night.
The rooms were what you'd get at the price we paid ($40.49 + tax). Clean, except that one or two light bulbs weren't working in our friends' room. Again, a minor inconvenience. The rooms weren't exactly soundproof, so some noise from CA-99 and the train comes in. Not too much of a bother if you're used to noisy environments, but if you need absolute quiet, might be good to go prepared.
Funny enough, the final invoice we got did not include the tax component, but the reception insisted that $40.49 was it.
