Fair for the price

The staff was nice, room was ok. It is a cheap motel, so not so bad. One thing I didn't like was, it is so close to the highway, so expect the highway noise. And hard to find the location if you exit from the highway. (too close, you miss it exiting the highway)

Needs work

I generally don't mind simple and cheap hotels, but this one needed a lot of renovating and remodeling.

Will NEVER stay here again!

this is likely the worst hotel I've stayed at. the pillows were dirty underneath the pillow covers so I lay my own towel over the pillows. There were barely towels in the bathroom. the shower stall was dark because there was no light in the stall. AC unit was loud. Scent of the room was not pleasant to say the least. Window curtains barely closed all the way so I had to use my hairpin to keep it closed. I don't even want to think of what yucky mess was lying on the floor/carpet so we wore shores when we walked around in the room. I will NEVER stay at this place again! I am not sure why this place is still in business.

Very cheap

With a little effort this place could be a lot better. The manager was very helpful but the place wasn't very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean . It was cheap but grubby,cigarette holes in the blanket. One night was enough. Just passing through. Breakfast was coffee and a small muffin. It's tucked away so it's easily missed before returning to the freeway.

100% disgusting

Bates motel was the first thing that came to mind when we pulled up. The room had a horrible stench when we walked in, the curtains weren't on all the way, the lamps had rips in the lamp shades the paint job looked like a 3 year old did it. The carpet was filthy we kept our shoes on the guest whole time. I went to use the restroom and there was hair on the sink, in the shower as well. The towels had stains on them and where ripped up. We then left to try and enjoy our day after our long drive and before going back to the hotel stopped and bought Lysol, febreeze and baby wipes. Sprayed down our entire room took the comforter off along with the 99cent store sheet and under blanket. I used our beach towels and laid them on the bed so we had a clean area. I threw the pillows off the bed because they were a disgusting yellow color and didn't want to get lice. I was lucky enough to have had my friend bring a little sleeping bag I was able to lay in to try and keep warm. In the middle of the night I did feel something crawling on my hand and killed it. When we woke up from what little sleep we got I did see a bug the size of an aphid on the bed not sure if it was a flea or what immediately got up to get our stuff in the car and leave. When rolling up the sleeping bag we did find a cockroach on the outside of it. We decided to leave our beach towels we slept on when we saw a dead cockroach on one. We didn't even shower there. I would never recommend this place to anyone and am disappointed that .... even has this hotel on their site. I will not be using this site again

Condition of motel

I could not believe that your company would suggest staying at this terrible motel. If I could rate it lower than ONE Star I would. I checked into the motel went to the room and immediately checked out of the place. You should take this property off your list of places to stay. I would not use your services again because of this motel. I stayed at a motel just half a block away. It was a name brand property. Also, plane reservations and auto were fine. Thank you.

Sleazy Dump

I got my reservation, paid for my room, then when I get there, they tell me they sold my room, and I have to pay an upcharge for a better room. I get my key, go to open the door to my room, and somebody is already in there. Then they tell me the people in my room were supposed to be in the next room, but both rooms have the same key. So they give me the room next door, that the people in my room were supposed to be in (with the same key). They were only there for a couple hours though, and didn't spend the night.... DON"T STAY HERE!!!!!

Your basic needs only

The hotel location was conveniently located to the freeway and many eating place which I think was its major highlight. The room was clean. The bed needed help as it sagged in the middle. I brought it to the attention of the staff but nothing was done about except "we will look at it tomorrow". The pool was closed for renovation. Overall a basic place to stay but would not stay again. Will pay extra money for a better place next time.
