My husband and I recently stayed at this RR Inn for 4 days. We moved to this motel after a 2 week stay at Motel 6. I was a bit worried about staying here because of the reviews and the close proximity to the freeway but I figured anything had to be better than what my husband and I had just dealt with for the previous 2 weeks at the other place!!
Check in was a breeze. Front desk girl was very friendly. The grounds were nicely well kept. The one side of the motel is pet friendly; I enjoyed walking by and seeing the kitty cats peeking out the windows of some rooms. I never saw any pet messes or trash. Ever.
We stayed on the no pets side. Our first room was NICE!! It was located on the second floor inside the inner balcony, so we couldn't hear the freeway noise. It was very clean and smelled fine. It had a nice work station area with an office chair, plus another lounger type of chair in the corner. Also had a small fridge and a microwave and a coffee maker.
The bathroom was very clean. It had a very nice marble vanity, sink, and lots of counter space. Showerhead was great and sits high which makes it nice for the taller people like my husband. Only thing I did not like was that there were no shelves inside the shower for us to put our shampoos, soap, etc.. on. And the lighting in the bathroom was rather dim.
TV was huge! Air Conditioner/Heater worked great.
Our first rooms sink and shower drains had a drainage problem, though, and needed repairs so the next day we had to move to another room. No problem...The RR Inn gave us an even BIGGER, nice corner room!!! The only gripes we had with this room was that it was on the outer balcony so we could hear the freeway noise a bit more. Also had the same dim lighting and no shelving in the bathroom. We could not get the room very dark because it had two windows; my husband wound up waking up way before he wanted to because the morning sunlight would shine in. Not sure if the room just needs new blackout drapes or?? Still a very nice room though!!! I like the little lights above the bed for reading.
Our housekeeper, Ampon, was a total sweetheart!! She gave us all brand new towels and extra coffee because I had left the others behind in the other room. I asked for extra towels and she gave me those too!! My husband needed kleenex and she gave us an extra pack "just in case" he might need it. (He did.)
Both beds in both rooms were very comfy Kings. There was lots of pillows tossed on top. Hubby and I woke up without backaches, thank goodness!!
Free internet worked great!! A much appreciated novelty to have for us as we do all of our work from our computers.
Pool and jacuzzi area were nice and clean. I used the jacuzzi...it felt so lovely on a sore back!
Note to management: The bubblers on your jacuzzi are not working right and when they get turned on, they shoot a lot of water out of the jacuzzi and onto the deck.
I will be coming back soon to San Dimas and I will definitely be choosing this RR Inn as my home base. For $14-$17 a night more than the Motel 6, you get much better accommodations, free internet, coffee, microwave, fridge, bigger, more comfier beds, and a jacuzzi. My only wish and hope is that they get a weekly rate going to make the cost a bit easier on my pocketbook. ☺
