we needed a based of operation for 4 days so it served our purpose and was priced reasonable

Room was fine, clean, staff was professional and helpful, but the motel appears to be used for extended stay clients who hang around the parking lot, smoke, drive beater cars and made us uncomfortable. I will not be going back. Wish I would have booked at the quality Inn across the road.

Room was overall decent for the price you pay, house keeping was ok although I was concerned that they left my room door accessible after cleaning, parking was fine, complementary breakfast was good for emergencies. Overall was left alone, not noisy, and my problems were addressed when brought up to the front desk.

This place was probably the top of the line back in the day but it is run down and poorly managed now. I chose it to save a few bucks but wish I would have paid the extra money and chosen one of the other motels withing walking distance. In order to get a roll away bed, I needed to pay an additional $15 per night. I went to Wal Mart and bought a blow up bed for $8 instead. The walls are paper thin and we could hear everything being said, watched and listened to next door. The free breakfast is crammed into a tiny room with no space to move around and nothing of any redeeming nutritional value. It's Sugar-Fest and, while my kids loved it, I was cringing the entire time. I asked for a late check out and was granted a 2:00 time (normal is noon). At 9:30, housekeeping entered our room without knocking. We were only sitting on the beds watching TV but that could have been a very embarrassing situation for a different set of guests. We won't ever stay there again and recommend you fork out the extra 20 bucks and stay somewhere else yourself.

I first check the price of this on Orbitz.com and it was listed at one price. I called the hotel and they were about $70 more than the Orbitz price. Obviously, I booked on Orbitz. The place was close enough to any grocery stores or fast food restaurant you'd want to go to. This is not a five-star hotel but a good three-star hotel. It is worth the price.

My stay here was good. I was able to be on the freeway in minutes. My children swam in the pool. Breakfast area is small but adequate food.

This may have been my worst lodging experience in the last 20 years. The facility had a toilet that was "backed up" and left without repair for an entire day. In fact, it was never fixed. After lengthy efforts to resolve it the management staff eventually owned up to the fact they have not staff for repairs on weekends, and eventually moved us to a different room 24 hours later. The linens are "soiled" (yes thats what I mean) from previous occupants usage, and left unchanged when we arrived. We had to change them ourselves because there was not enough staff. The management staff was less than straightforward! We were informed they were working, at the present time, to address the situation by cleaning a different room for us to transfer too with all of the available staff so as to do so in a timely fashion. I went to that room to check on their progress, and it did not have one person there. When I went to the office they were all just chatting behind the counter and they assured me their team was in the room at the present time and they had been there for the previous hour. They did not realize I was JUST THERE. It took another 3 hours. The facility was dirty, smelly, and broken down. The staff was less than ... Stay any place else!

The sauna, steam room, andlaundry room were out of order. The hinges on our door were broke so it made it hard to shut the door properly. The hall ways to the rooms were extremely hot the air conditioner wasn't working. We had sugar ants in our room. The bathroom fan was extremely loud. The television was small and some channels were blurry and they were the movie channels. Also, the WiFi wasn't the greatest either

It's old but okay I guess, decent price for the comfort and structure of the building.

The overall stay was decent. I didn't care for the extra $$$ fee we had to pay as a deposit (I know some places require it) however, it wasn't mentioned online when I booked the room. Apparently there was a motorcycle safety class the next morning and the room was right next to ours so we were woken up at 8am with loud talking and laughing. It was our vacation and I wanted some quiet. We should have been told about the class the night before in case we wanted to change rooms. The mini fridge and coffee pot didn't work, but there was Peet's coffee right across the street. Overall, the room was good and we'd stay again.

Everything was good except that I woke up at 5am because of loud motorcycles.

Fairly clean but in need of update. TV was an old style and had a poor picture. Furnishings were old, chairs were loose and very uncomfortable. Room and hallways smelled like cigarette smoke covered over with perfume. Internet was basically unusable, it tested as high bandwidth for about two seconds and then would drop down to almost nothing. Broken down cars in the parking lot. Not a good value for the money. If you just want a bed and a decent bathroom and it was half the price, I might have given it a better rating.

We stay during Swap Meet every year. The TV was not working well didn't get all channels. Rooms were pretty clean but dust and cob webs. And our wife's stay Saturday night. We rent a room for them. Room was not ready till 5:40. Really like the location so l hope next year it's better.

We nabbed this room to go to a concert nearby and everything was great. The staff was very nice, parking was tight but they pointed us to overflow not too far away. There are lots of food options right across the street. We saw the indoor pool which was nice but didn't try it out. Even though MOST of the people that were there for the night were for the concert we went too and some of them were in party mode, we had no noise complaints and slept incredibly well. Not much of a view but I won't knock off points for that. Loved the stay. Loved the staff.

House keeping not very good . On the final day of my stay I returned at 8 pm and the room hadn't been cleaned and the bed was not made. The evening staff was indifferent to the problem.

Had a loud upstairs neighbor but not the fault of the hotel. The rooms are clean and very very nice. I would go back there anytime.

Halls smelled of disinfectant. Lots of animals due to dog/cat show in area. Allergies resulted in swollen face and very uncomfortable. Crossing it off our list for future trips.

great stay great location and friendly staff cose to dining,and entertainment

Great room and accommodations. The managers (apparently husband/wife) loudly giving instructions to their staff (regarding plugged toilet and other in-house problems) ruined what otherwise would have been a great breakfast in their lobby.

Check in time was 4pm. I arrived at 7pm due to traffic. When I got there, my room wasn't ready. Cleaning staff were just hanging out with front desk staff. When I finally got up to the room, there was only one towel given for a room booked with two people. I also found a penny lying on the floor, which tells me that the room wasn't vacuumed.
