I booked this hotel based on reviews on TA and also because the Colton was full and they referred me to Budget Host.
We arrived around 9pm and did advise at reservation (directly) that we would be a late arrival. We had the AAA rate and were charge $150 and change for 2 adults and 1 child (9yo) for a two night stay.
The room was clean and the a/c was on, which was very welcome as the outside temps were hot and muggy. There was a strange light fixture in our room and on the toliet cover that said "Levitation Project" in bright green. That was a bit bizarre and added "character".
The breakfast was only pastries in a tupperware type box and coffee. I walked to a local gas station to purchase juice.
The location was AWESOME. We were a few hundred yards from the Visitor's Center and Cemetary and in the center of town to walk to restaurants and shops.
We found the pool to be clean and my family enjoyed splashing away in it. It ranges from 3 to 9 feet, but the drop off is marked by a floating rope.
A heads up if you tend to be freaked out by tattoos or piercings- the manager/owner is heavily tattooed and has hoops in his ear lobes that are flush with his earlobe (creating a hole ringed by the metal hoop). My son was impressed/amazed. I mention this because I want fellow travelers to not be judgemental. The management is VERY nice, pleasant and helpful, so if you are one who lets outside appearances affect your impression of an operation, PLEASE DON'T!
One other note, the motel actively solicits tips for the maids. I didn't mind, and make it a regular practice to tip at every hotel stay. Due to the rates, the staff's wages are likely correspondingly low as well, so please be a good tipper.
This motel is an excellent value and location and the price can't be beat.
