Very noisey. Broken window. Hard bed. Chipped furniture,counter tops and bath tub. Front desk would not do anything about the fighting in parking lot.

The room had no towels it was dirty the shower didn't work and within minutes on orbit side it went from $47 up to $60 I was so dissatisfied I stay at the vagabond and buttonwillow and that's such a nice vagabond the one in oildale is awful if there was any way possible that I can get a voucher for one night stay and the motel I'd appreciate it thank you

Location was good to pop off 99 on the way to San Diego and rest up overnight. Right off freeway, which was good but the traffic noise from 99 was pretty loud. It was not that big of a deal and I could've had a room further away from the road if I requested that. Several fast food places like McDonalds and Starbucks and a Shell and Chevron right next door. Room was small but seemed very clean. For the location and price ($65), it was perfect for what I needed.

I saw the reviews going into this place and knew not to have high expectations. I was disappointed that that the non smoking rooms were really BAD. The previous person that stayed in our room but a bag over the smoke detector, and I guess cleaning staff didn't think of removing it. Recommendations: take your own Clorox wipes, air freshener, don't shower, take your own sheets/blankets/pillows etc.

I give it a 3.5. The half is because the staff (the 2 I dealt with) were nice and courteous. The breakfast was ready and the area was cleaned and the selections were good. Other than that is was a little sketchy, not too clean and there was animal poop all over the outside.

Bedding was iffy no tv channels not enough pillows and towels

Bugs every where in room, on the walls, in the ac control panel, under covers, under beds, in bathroom. Stains on walls. Should be closed and professionally fumigated

Old but good price so overall ok. Uncomfortable mattress n nasty smell

Leaking faucets in sink & shower, and walls & bathroom doors were a bit grimy near the bottom. Deep cleaning or new paint would help.

Fast check in freanly clerk the room was clean but some homeless people walking outside the hotel make it a little uncomfortable

The main problem was the freeway noise. For the price it was fine!

Nice hotel for the money but to close to the highway. Lots if noise.

The room was clean and the staff was friendly. There was a strong smell "like vinegar" in the room as soon as the door opened. Opening the window did help but we couldn't keep it open all night. Although it has wide range breakfast hours 2:00am to 9:00am, the breakfast variety was very limited. The room didn't have iron nor iron board as well as it doesn't have coffee maker. It is ideal for someone who is looking for a hot shower and few hours of sleep.

The room is nice and clean. Not much parking near our room though.

Pros: Microwave, fridge Cons: Dirty bathroom, dirty blankets, uncomfortable beds, noisy floor, horrible breakfast options
