Recent guest reviews

MY experience was as a 4 or 5 star hotel. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable with bed covers as you would get from a 5 star hotel. The room had carpet that was the cleanest I've seen, no stains and smells new. The shower had great water pressure with an extra lower body spray. The staff was very friendly and informative. The best part was when I walked in a day late due to flight cancellation the lady at the front desk informed me... if you go to your Orbitz reservation hotline and inform them of your cancellation we will refund the first night!! That is customer satisfaction - looking out for the customers!! The rooms were very quiet at night. Don't let the outside dissuade you. Everything was much better than expected and walking distance to every great restaurant imaginable. One restaurant that I went to was horrible!! The one right next door (Mexican place). The breakfast was good and they had a very cool espresso machine which would brew up anything you want and tasted fresh. I WILL BE COMING BACK!! THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL STAY!!

Close to downtown and the hospital, good breakfast?

The outside doesn't reflect on what the inside is like. I am a freak when it comes to a clean hotel room. I normally will find a hair, smudge on glass, something. This room was clean. Of course, there is normal wear and they have had to touch up which could have been better i.e. a better painter would have used masking tape so paint wouldn't get on the shower at the top; but the place was spotless. The shower had these two nozzles near the handle that shot out two more water sprays, with amazing water pressure. Plenty of soft towels, an iron and board that was in great condition. HD tv, the plug by the bed had built in usb charging ports. The bed was soft and plush which I normally prefer a firm. But I slept great on it. The pillows felt brand new. I got there an hour early and called to see if there was a room ready. The man on the phone said it shouldn't be a problem to check in early. Wifi was nice and quick. No curtains but these very nice wooden shutters, which sealed up tight not letting light through.

Couldn't ask for more for a local getaway. Staff was very nice and the room was comfy.

Nice room, clean, good wifi! Got back to the hotel very late at night and the lady in the front desk went above and beyond to help me find a parking space inside the premises. Very grateful :)

As a motel, this place is really outstanding. My king room is small, but clean and cozy. It's very close to the center of Riverside and the campus of UC Riverside. Highly recommended for a budget trip.

Small but cozy a decent place for the money would stay there again

It was overall good. Decent place, clean and comfortable enough for the price I paid. Didn't care much for the location but then again I didn't pick it based on location, just needed a quiet spot to lay my head while visiting friends in riverside area.

The motel was fine and quiet. Not elegant but a nice, easy to find and comfortable place.

great stop after the airport on the way to death valley

On the outside not impressive, however, the accommodations within the room is most important. Very clean, modern, and bed is comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised and the staff was very kind and helpful.

We had a lovely stay and we will be returning. It was close to where we made dinner reservations to, perfect walking distance.

Our stay was very nice. Walking distance to the restaurant we had reservations at and close to Lake Alice, which is one of my favorite local spots. The only problem with our room was there were no large towels, only hand towels & wash clothes. Other than that, it was fine.

I had the upgraded Queen bed room. It was modern,clean and cozy.. Maybe,alittle too cozy,but everything one needs is included (even a mini fridge) ,Location was great. Only couple blocks from downtown Riverside. Very close to Mission Inn. A grocery mart is located right across the street.

It was good and I stay there all the time! It's a nice and cheap hotel!

Gonna make this short and sweet. The room was nice and cozy only negative was the size of the room, but have to say it's not that big of a deal. Enjoyed my stay here and would go back as well as recommend it to others.

We were very pleased with this motel. They provided more than adequate towels,nice breakfasts every morning , and only a few blocks from the convention center and wonderful restaurants. I would certainly stay there again.

Hotel is excellent. Good location to stay close by mission Inn

We had newly re modeled room that was very clean and cute!! The pillows and comforter were amazingly comfortable. Wish it were my own .. The ONLY con is that there wasn't a microwave and the room was a bit small! other than that Everything was great :)

Pros: Freindly staff, the rooms are newly remodeled, very clean and beds are super comfy. Breakfast was unexpectedly nice, gourmet coffee machine, juice, hot chocolate, cereal, yogurt, toast, bagels, but best of all a waffle iron piping hot and ready for your regular and/or blueberry waffle batter. Nom nom. Cons: Sketchy area, rooms are very small so if you have more than two people it'll be cramped. That's about it and yes, I would stay again!
