I'm not a motel/hotel snob. Basically all I want is a clean, safe, secure place to shower and sleep. A comfortable bed is also nice. I usually stay in cheaper motels/hotels (after checking them out on Trip Advisor).
This place was just odd.
The room was sparten at best. It had a jail cell feel to it. No carpeting, hard laminate floors instead, which gave the room an echo.
The room was clean enough. No signs of vermin or bugs.
Very basic room. A bed, small table, shower/tub, small sink area. No closet, just a few hangers. The shower was of a decent size and had decent water pressure. However it seemed like forever before the water temperature got past luke warm. The bathroom towlels were skimpy at best, and I had no wash cloth. When I tried to hang the towels on the towel rack it fell off the wall.
Large flat panel TV on the wall.
No fridge, clock or hair dryer in the room. They charge for WiFi, but at $2.99 for 24 hours I guess it's cheap enough. Although free would be better.
The bed was as comfortable as a cheap motel bed can be. Not the best or worst bed I've slept in. At least I didn't wake up body sore and stiff like I have in the past.
I had a non-smoking room, but there seemed to be a faint smell of cig smoke when I first went into the room.
The hotel is between the very busy 101 freeway and a main street. There is some road noise but I didn't find it distracting. The walls are thin and everytime the people in the room above me walked around it sounded like a herd of elephants. Thankfully I brought ear plugs with me.
There was a tempuratture control on the wall. However it didn't seem to work. All I could get it to do was turn the fan from low to high.
Walgreens is directly across the street. Right next to the motel is a Long's Drugs, Subway and Albertson's. All within easy walking distance.
This is an ok place to stay for one night . I'd recommend it for a single traveler or maybe a couple as the room is small. Any more then two people in the room and you'd be bumping into each other.
