This motel is pretty old, so allowances must be made. It is quite close to a busy freeway, and there was a constant low rumble of traffic, day and night. We arrived around 5.30 and the front desk clerk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The motel is very pet-friendly, with rules, which is a good thing. The front handicap doors did not work under power, defeating their purpose. Our room was clean, but the furniture was faded and dilapidated. The carpet was like a washboard, and badly needed stretching. There was a hole in the wall from a too-enthusiastic use of the doorstop. On the bright side, the bathroom was very clean and fully stocked with towels, etc. Also, the TV, microwave and fridge (larger than usual), were fine. The beds were clean and very comfortable. Freeway noise during the night turned out not to be the problem we had anticipated. Breakfast was very good, just as advertised for all AmericInns. Right next to the motel is a small Chinese restaurant, most of whose business is take-out. We dined-in there; a Spartan experience.
In summary, unless you are hard-of-hearing, really need to bring the dog along, and relish mediocre Chinese food, this is not the place for you.
