“be warned”
Reviewed August 19, 2004

I wouldn't put my mother-in-law in this hotel thats how bad it is. Santa Clarita is a fine town, but like any other, has it's not so desirable areas and this hotel in smack in the middle of it. The only thing holding it together is the mold. It is located on the busiest street in Southern California and if the smell from the room doesn't keep you awake, the traffic will. Learn to sleep standing up in a corner if you find yourself in this dump, lying on any mattress here is extremely dangerous to your health. Risk BO and skip taking a shower or worse, a bath, here. NEVER take young babies that may crawl on the floor or heaven forbid put things in their mouth. Spring another $15 a night and stay at a Travel Lodge. Avoid the Santa Clarita Hotel at all costs.

The inside is scary looking. The sheets are plastic. There were holes in the ceiling, which we stuck QTips in. The office is dingy and stinks really bad. They're not very careful about who they rent rooms to--one of the other guests stopped us in the parking lot at 3 o'clock in the morning to tell us that he had just stabbed someone in the face.
However, since the office is closed from 11pm-7:30am, you can't get any help and the Santa Clarita Police surely aren't going to come to your rescue either. If you come across this town, DO NOT stop, just keep going.

The Santa Clarita Motel may be close to Magic Mountain, but I would rather stay somewhere that is cleaner and further away. Upon arrival to our room, the first thing we noticed was the smell. Then we noticed the old, dirty mattresses (you know,...the kind you would see on the side of the road for free...), and the dirty plastic covered lampshades. The bathroom was even worse--there was mold all over the shower curtain and an unidentified blue sludge in the yellow plastic "smiley face" cup next to the sink. The only consolation was that our friends' room smelled even worse! (Our female friend even said that she slept with her nose in her husband's armpit because it smelled better!). The reviewer that stated that it was a clean room is completely nuts!

We were looking for someplace to sleep, bathe, and watch cable TV before and after visiting Magic Mountain. This place fit the bill for that. There are no extras, but you can't beat $52 per night. The room was clean and the motel is less that 2miles from the gate to Magic Mountain. We spent the $$ we saved on the motel at the amusement park.
