House keeping. Maintenace work everyday near my room.

The outer area was beautiful nice landscaping and we'll maintained

There was a leak from the ceiling in the bathroom. There was standing water on the floor from the leak. Only half of the jet tub’s jets were working and the WiFi signal was so low we couldn’t even log on. I discussed this with the front desk and they needed to pass my info to the manager. I have called back and still have not heard back from the manager.

It was not clean I felt bad being in there I couldn’t wait for the night to finish

The staff was great and got us in to our room early. That gave us a chance to relax early

The room wasn’t clean and the property overall is run down. It was safe but a little over priced for what you’re getting. Stains on the sheets and overall dirty.

Nice hotel for the price, although we were given a room before it had been cleaned, it was before check-in time. Left our food in fridge while it was cleaned

Close to food and downtown riverside. The place has an ice machine and pool on site as well.

The tolit keeps overflowing an makes the smell for a 120 a night thats not cool

place is nice. they have coffee inside as what they indicated in their description.

Good location. I liked that the room had both a mini fridge and microwave for longer stays

It's a motel and does not pretend to be anything more. Don't expect a fancy pool (or any pool at all because it's closed). The good: (1) clean sheets and towels (2) clean room with no odors (3) clean bathroom (4) lots of parking (5) polite and attentive front desk The bad: (1) no amenities beyond the basic bed/tv/bathroom (2) fridge smelled of garlic and fried food, had to close it quick (3) no closet, just an open wardrobe for hanging clothes, (4) blanket had the occasional cigarette burn, (5) towel service sometimes incomplete. But again, what do you expect for motel rates? Compared to other budget motels, it's a solid 3/5 stars: "meets expectations, but does not exceed them."

I was extremely please with the condition of the motel and room and the friendliness of the front desk and maintenance staff. Great room rate.

Nice and clean hotel, manager so professional and friendly feel happy thank you.

Fine place to stay. Tv is only disappointment. Old crt so not able to hook up my computer or music.. Pictures of rooms are deceiving. They are much smaller.. Reminded me of old days inn rooms.

Hotel was a bit outdated but the bed was very comfortable. There was a loud noise throughout nights instayed (plumbing).
