“It's a room with a bed, and that's about it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

My family and I stayed overnight at this hotel during a recent car trip from Seattle to the San Francisco Bay area. We selected this hotel based on reviews here and on Yelp, the fact it has an outdoor pool, and based on its claims to have a complimentary breakfast.

I'll just skip to the summary and let you know this is not a hotel you want to book if you have children. The rooms are marginally clean. The air conditioner is pretty loud and difficult to use if you want to maintain a consistent temperature. The pool is not skimmed or cleaned on a regular basis, so you share it with insects, leaves, and other debris. There is only one ice machine for the entire hotel. Finally the "breakfast" is nothing more than pre-packaged pastries you'd find in a convenience store and some stale coffee. But all of this paled in comparison to the service which never rose above the "tolerate our presence" level.

We found the lack of attention to detail, absence of amenities, and general atmosphere of grime to be surprising considering the cost of our room was comparable to many other (apparently nicer) hotels within the same city. Honestly I can't see anything to actually recommend this establishment, but I also cannot actively turn people away. If other options are all full, then by all means give it a go.

Dear Guest

We appologize for any inconvinence caused during your stay at our hotel, I would just like to comment on couple issues that guest felt was not welcoming: All rooms amenities are refridgerator, microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer and 27" TV w/ remote just like other chain hotels and yes breakfast is not much just (coffee, Juice, fruit, pastry''s, cereals, milk) but for the price of $50-$60 minus 3rd party commision fees/other expenses whats left is not much. We are offering very resonable rates for rooms which are much better in quality then motel 6 and perhaps other hotels in the area. But we value our guest comments and we will work hard to make our property better everyday...Thank you GM

Room was cozy, staff friendly but not a whole lot to say. Room had an odor like moth balls or something - I got an upset stomach and headache, along with the kids. Aired out the room and it seemed to fade. My daughter kept finding ants in the room and was not a happy camper. we did not check out the pool. Breakfast consisted of cereal, apples, and juice. This is an older hotel and updates have been done. We had breakfast out and probably will not make this a repeat hotel.

We stayed here one night on our way to Oregon. Room was very clean & recently refurbished. Bed was firm, but comfortable. Reasonably priced & quiet motor lodge.
