I wasn’t expecting much for the price I paid. The room smelled like smoke and was dirty.

The Costa Mesa location is getting out of control. I stay at this location all the time. The amount of roaches I've seen has gotten worst and worst. I stayed there this week for 2 nights and the first thing I noticed was a dead roach on the be bathroom floor. I then saw one in the shower, on the sink, and several in the bed room. The final straw was when I was getting out of bed in the middle of the night and one crawled over my foot.

The worse hotel that I saw in my life. Terrible reception, terrible rooms, terrible coffee, the ac don’t work, bad smell.

Great location. Ask for upgraded room in front with wood finishing!

Staff friendly and courteous! Clean rooms. Quiet place to stay.

This is an older budget motel. However, I was really impressed with how clean it was, and they clearly work hard to keep the place maintained. I’d stay again.

Easy check in to a clean and comfortable room. Very nice pool and hot tub area! Nice people.

Cigarette burn holes in sheets, small TV and lack of TV guide. But for the price it was nice, mostly quiet, close to many convenient great food places, and a very comfortable bed.

Clean comfortable room. Nice pool and hot tub area. Nice people on staff. In N Out. Easy freeway access.

The room smelled like old cigarettes. The carpet was torn and stained. This hotel seriously needs updating.

...bed was like 2 different levels from 1 side to the other... when I checked out the lady would not give me a printout of my receipt... I've gotten a printout from every place I've ever stayed regardless of how it was booked. Other than that the place was acceptable for the cost.

The room smelled like cigarettes as so as we stepped in

The Jets for the hot tub did not work. Maid service did not check every day if we needed services . Lots of traffic from in&out in same parking lot

Key system did not work, we had to go to front desk each and everytime on Sunday & Monday to access our room. Refrigerator did not cool and it was leaking water our food & fruits ruined. Front desk girl came in to our room said not her expertise and no maintenance person came in to fix or replace refrigerator. Pool looked green instead of blue. Served brown bananas. I would not have reserved a room if I had known these problems.

The location was great! Really old AC, it was either really cold or really warm in the room. Not as clean as would have expected!
