Good Weekend

Even though the hotel was close to the freeway, I did not hear any traffic. I have paid more than twice the price for a room and heard more traffic noise!

A little hot to walk, but depends on person. Wal-Mart, Starbucks, In-n-Out, Denny's, Texaco & Chevron gas stations all nearby.

Great price

Overall an enjoyable experience. The manager and front staff were very helpful in helping me relocate from another Vagabond Inn to this one. Room staff although they maintained the room clean, had to be asked more than once for in room coffee. The TV system was not working correctly while I was there.

Good

Everything was good but not great. It was clean, there was a pool, the staff were nice. There was a breakfast served from 2am (am!) to 9am, but I slept through it both days that I stayed.

Ghetto motel

The hotel was very low class. I paid $15 per room (I booked 2) more on orbitz than the rate they advertised on the sign when I got there! It was seedy and unclean. The only good thing was the free breakfast in the morning which included waffles and dohnuts.
