I realize I was only spending 53 dollars to stay here, but this hotel was just stinky. The carpets were filthy, the paint needs to be refreshed, and the room & bedding all smelled like smoke-trying-desperately-to-be-disguised-by-some-nauseating air freshener. Just smelly. I think I breathed through my mouth the entire night, trying to avoid smelling anything. Just to give you an idea, I showered with my flip flops on. As for the bedding? It was beyond pathetic, Thee thinnest blanket known to man, with a shiny, 70s quilt as back-up (which I didn't use because I couldn't get Matt Lauer's black-light expose from Dateline out of my head). My room was in the front of the property, so I got to listen to I-5 all night (I pretended like it was the ocean, didn't work) and also the bump-bump-bumping of radios coming from the parking lot. You could be in the back of the hotel, but you will be sleeping on the train track. The good news? You can go to Denny's for a short stack (I didn't, but it's in the same parking lot) or you can hit Jack-in-the-box right across the street. I will say, the girls at the front desk were really nice. So nice I almost feel bad writing this review. The key word there is "almost."
