Great location to Anza Borrego park. The room was clean and had contactless check in and out. 3 issues were 1.) The walls was very thin so I could hear the next door conversation. On night the couple had friends over and they were up talking til 4 am and it keep me up. 3.) DTV was coming in and out so the TV was not working so good 3) water pressure on the shower head was coming out slow.

Close proximity to Don's grocery and a pizza place. Downside, the entire area is having water system repairs so you cannot drink the tap water. That's not just here but many properties in the area

Couldn’t shower, they left us a few water bottles to wash out hands because the water was contaminated. Overall was poor experience!

Not being able to use the water was definitely a bummer. It was recommended that we don't use the water to drink, brush our teeth, cook, clean dishes etc. So I I can't clean my dishes, but I can wash my hands and take a shower? Needless to say, we used bottled water to wash our hands and brush our teeth and we opted to shower at home after a long weekend. The room was clean, the decor is nice amd I liked the hardwood floors vs carpet. I regularly saw housekeeping cleaning rooms and it looed like they really took the time to sanitize.

I did not like the 4:00 check in, too late,??? Covant thing going on??? Maybe necessary??? Other than that quiet clean comfortable 👍

Room clean, but exterior unkempt. No staff on premises. Not an inn, just a motel.

Great cozy getaway spot. Looking to leave city life behind, this is tge spit to come and relax

The room was HUGE!!! Great stay for the night. I would def stay here again.

The property was clean and recently remodeled. There was no staff on site and you needed to call them to get the code to go into room.

Recent efforts to upgrade this property are noticeable and positive. The room amenities that have been added (in-wall heat/AC, comfortable beds and bed linens, coffee makers, flat-screen TV, etc,) are very nice and make the most of the basic original buildings. The baths have been upgraded, too, to the extent possible with the original construction. We had stayed there before, enjoyed staying in this “newer” version with still-reasonable prices and will stay there again.

You get what you paid for, I suppose. I never saw a staff member form check in to check out. Everything was through text and key drop box which I found akward. Yes the room seemed somewhat recently remodeled but it gave a weird vibe. Artwork in the room is out dated and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. One bed was nice and fluffy but the other was broken and tilted which made it hard to sleep in. Wouldn’t stay here again.

Impressive renovation. ...friendly staff. ...location was ideal for us.

Thanks for the detailed review. We are in the process of adding insulation between the walls to reduce the noise levels. We would have been happy to ask the guests next door to you to quiet down had we been notified they were being noisy. We are currently installing new water tanks which should increase the water pressure once they are installed. Unfortunately we are in a spotty area for internet and thus our tv can be a bit spotty. We hope you can come back soon once the issues have been resolved.

We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Our water is tested weekly and is safe to drink. We are just waiting for the County inspector to approve our new water tanks. We hope your travels bring you back to us very soon.

Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Our water has been tested as safe, but we are waiting for the County inspector to approve our new water tanks. We hope that will be in the next week or so. We do provide guests with as much bottled water as they want. We hope you can come back once our water tanks are approved.

Thanks for the review. We are deep cleaning our rooms due to the pandemic and it takes a bit longer than normal to clean the rooms. We do text you as soon as your room is ready so you can head straight to the room.

We have staff on site 24 hours per day, but not standing at the front desk as we are a small property and they do multiple jobs. They can be reached via phone, text, or door bell that rings right to the hotel phone.
