Great location, easy off and easy to find the motel location.

Pictures are not accurate representation of what rooms actually look like.

Excellent staff, efficient and attentive. we needed to check in early, we call ahead and were able to do it. that was very helpful, since we needed to get to a family event and did not wanted to be worry to came back very late and not having access to a room. Excellent service.

This hotel was in a very good location for us because we had business in Calexico.The staff was helpful, room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a bonus.

The Hotel looks nice from the outside. When we walked into lobby it was warm no AC on and it was 92 degrees outside, the halls were hot as well. The rooms were roomy and somewhat clean. YIKES when I went into the bathroom to shower there were 2 cockroaches on the wall. I tired to kill them but missed. We were in Calexico for a wake and funeral so I wasn't in the mood nor did I have time to contact the front desk. They need to spray after each guess to make sure no critters are in the room.

I had a very satisfactory stay. This survey has become annoying.

Staff are very accommodating and made my stay comfortable. Room is clean and smells good. I will use this hotel again.

Well, like any other hotel in the valley, the rooms are basic, the unit I stayed in was a bit dirty looking. The staff was pleasant, but the food was OK. Bottom line, look for deals before you come out here. It's all about 100.00 a night, but no way in heck they are worth that much! Overall quality was average, because let's face it. There is nothing awesome in the valley.

The hotel is very clese to everything and the amenities are great, the food offers are delicious

The hotel is pretty nice. The room is updated and modern. The microwave and fridge are an extra bonus. Generally, I'm pleased with this stay, except that when I checked cc statement, they charged me for the room that I prepaid with O... I'll dispute that charge and I'm glad that I looked and found the charge when doing my expense reports. Watch out for these extra charges people, if you don't, you would double-paid for the same room.

I was looking for a Hotel close to the Mexico border and this hotel is really close. The area maybe it's not very nice but the hotel is awsome. Comfortable and quiet. I'll stay again in the future.

Could not check in at the given time. Power was off.After power went on, computer was not loaded for checking in. Checked in two hours later. Room was not handicap accessible as requested. TV was terrible! It was on red tint and could not be changed. I do not expect to check into this hotel again.
