“Needs a good cleaning”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The location of this hotel is great. The front desk guy was a bit rude and would not give me a receipt because I booked on Hotels.com. The grounds needs some attention and the rooms need a deep cleaning, Breakfast was $7 and you could go next door and get great food for that price.

Stayed one night at this hotel while visiting Hearst Castle. Hotel is in need of updating, very drab! The rooms were clean but the shower didn't work properly and there is no air-con! The receptionist did provide us with a fan though. There are much nicer hotels in the area, would not stay here again!

Not knowing the area I went by price on choosing a place to stay. It had everything I could need: bed, bathroom and even microwave, tv and fridge.

The room was on the 1st floor in the corner. You could hear the footsteps of the people upstairs as well as their toilet flushing. The doors automatically lock when you leave and is a doorknob lock only. The deadbolt lock is only available from inside the room. The room was dated and felt grimy. Even the toilet seat had a stain that wouldn't come out. It also smelled like smoke even though the room was supposed to be non-smoking.

The price of the motel was definitely the cheapest in the area. I don't recommend it and won't stay again.

Old, ran down, uncomfortable, not as clean as one would desire, wi-fi intermittent, but free, did not see bedbugs but read other reviews said they had seen bedbugs. Would not stay here again unless last place room in town. The desk clerk was very nice. The shirts they had for sale in a little sales places were filthy.

Room Tip: If you need this could be stayed in but if planned look somewhere else.

We stayed on the first floor and people staying outside were obnoxious and loud. You can hear the people from the outside. The A.C. didn't work as well as some lamp shades. I'm just happy that we didn't find any bed bugs.
