“Great time out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2010

It appears the only people who actually write reviews these days are disgruntled guests, which can make it decidedly tough to choose a satisfactory motel when you are looking for a place to escape from the long and uneventful interstate highways that dominate this country. Our stay here was most enjoyable. The bed was very comfortable, area fine, and staff helpful. I am here to add a little balance to the online review galaxy

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2010

I stayed simply for a night of rest and relaxation. Check-in was uneventful. Upon entering, I noticed that the soiled, spotted carpet was coming up in some places. There was a small hole in the wall right beside the bed which made me terribly uncomfortable, paranoid, and suspicious. I plugged it with a piece of tissue. One of the three pillow cases was soiled and spotted. The wall paper was worn and yellowed; as well, the furniture was dirty and dingy. Many of the table surfaces were tacky to the touch, especially the remote control. YUCK!! The small refrigerator in the room was very noisy. Trying to be optimistic, I will say that the heating/cooling unit was quiet and efficient. It looked like the newest item in the room. Also, there is a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a 7-11 right next door. Speaking of which, I did not eat breakfast there, so I cannot comment. Although I did not see any evidence of prostitution or any other illegal activities, it seems like a place where locals might frequent. You kind of get what you pay for. If you are looking for someplace to lay your head for a night, it might work for you, but if you are looking for cleanliness, keep looking.

I stayed here in Aug 08, I was looking for a cheap place to sleep, so I could cross the bay bridge during the daylight hours.
Very basic room, it was not spotless, but it was good enough to sleep in for one night, Small continental breakfest available in the morning. There is a 24 hour restaurant next door.

The worst place! It was dirty, smelled and was in a terrible area. I lost one nights rate because I was afraid to stay and left.
