Homestead Motel

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room does have a microwave & mini fridge. But mini fridge didn't work. They put me in same room I stayed in tha previous weekend which was fine but room could have been a bit more cleaner. The bathroom wasn't clean. Shower had hair & other bits inside it. I went to rite aid & bought disinfectant cleaners jus to scrub it out before using. Plus, I traveled with my kids.

Room overall is clean. It's outdated but it's a comfy stay. A microwave & mini fridge is a MAJOR plus, especially traveling with little ones. It's nice for the price! Staff is friendly too.

The room wasn't clean. Stain on pillow case. Soap scum in the shower. Toilet was dirty. The window didn't stay shut and the screen was coming off. I didn't feel safe at all. Stayed a total of three hours and then left.

No communication, zero eye contact with guests...but easy to check in and be left alone I guess, perfect for a private/shy person!

I am pretty sure there was blood on the bathroom wall. There was mold growing in the shower. The breakfast consisted of coffee.

The staff was nice, room was ok. It is a cheap motel, so not so bad. One thing I didn't like was, it is so close to the highway, so expect the highway noise. And hard to find the location if you exit from the highway. (too close, you miss it exiting the highway)

I generally don't mind simple and cheap hotels, but this one needed a lot of renovating and remodeling.

The beds are dilapidated and there is trash under the beds... only positive is the low price.

Bates motel was the first thing that came to mind when we pulled up. The room had a horrible stench when we walked in, the curtains weren't on all the way, the lamps had rips in the lamp shades the paint job looked like a 3 year old did it. The carpet was filthy we kept our shoes on the guest whole time. I went to use the restroom and there was hair on the sink, in the shower as well. The towels had stains on them and where ripped up. We then left to try and enjoy our day after our long drive and before going back to the hotel stopped and bought Lysol, febreeze and baby wipes. Sprayed down our entire room took the comforter off along with the 99cent store sheet and under blanket. I used our beach towels and laid them on the bed so we had a clean area. I threw the pillows off the bed because they were a disgusting yellow color and didn't want to get lice. I was lucky enough to have had my friend bring a little sleeping bag I was able to lay in to try and keep warm. In the middle of the night I did feel something crawling on my hand and killed it. When we woke up from what little sleep we got I did see a bug the size of an aphid on the bed not sure if it was a flea or what immediately got up to get our stuff in the car and leave. When rolling up the sleeping bag we did find a cockroach on the outside of it. We decided to leave our beach towels we slept on when we saw a dead cockroach on one. We didn't even shower there. I would never recommend this place to anyone and am disappointed that .... even has this hotel on their site. I will not be using this site again

Avg room, no water pressure, no hand soap provided, add mold growing on pillows. Will never stay here again

I got my reservation, paid for my room, then when I get there, they tell me they sold my room, and I have to pay an upcharge for a better room. I get my key, go to open the door to my room, and somebody is already in there. Then they tell me the people in my room were supposed to be in the next room, but both rooms have the same key. So they give me the room next door, that the people in my room were supposed to be in (with the same key). They were only there for a couple hours though, and didn't spend the night.... DON"T STAY HERE!!!!!

The hotel location was conveniently located to the freeway and many eating place which I think was its major highlight. The room was clean. The bed needed help as it sagged in the middle. I brought it to the attention of the staff but nothing was done about except "we will look at it tomorrow". The pool was closed for renovation. Overall a basic place to stay but would not stay again. Will pay extra money for a better place next time.

Location was good. 10 minute drive to the beach. Hotel Management nice -- provided extra towels. Bathroom sink did not have hot water, but shower did have hot water. Floors FILTHY -- must wear shoes in the room--otherwise, you will have black feet. Recommended only as a "place to crash".

We had two rooms. When we got there the manager said I had canceled one of my rooms and was complaining about loosing money,etc. I told him I had my paperwork in the car showing my reservations and how I had canceled one room and booked another because the guy I booked with had me down for one king bed in one of the rooms and I had asked for 2 queens as I didn't want to sleep with my Mom. There weren't enough towels in the rooms and the rooms smelt with a cleaning or musty smell. We were going to stay 3 nites and went home the morning after the 2nd nite and didn't stay the 3rd nite. I went to turn my keys in and no one was at the desk and I rang the bell and no one came to help me. The sign had the AM and PM but no times that the manager would be there.I left the keys on the desk behind the counter and left.....never to return.... This place was a big stepdown from a Motel 6...Thew place was very noisy both nites we were there...the bathrooms needed work and the tubs were not good....I wouldn't have taken a bath in them. Right by the freeway and very noisy.

Graduation day at CalPoly and everything was booked. I think they count on that. Large rooms, yes. Clean? No. Comfortable? Definitely not. (I have never seen a thinner pillow) Everything was falling apart. If we were not totally exhausted and knew everything else was booked, we would have left. Don't pull into the hard to find driveway, just go somewhere else. Maybe sleep in the park...

was very enjoyable rooms wear very nice for are short stay would stay there again on my next trip

The motel was a mess, lighting was difficult to use, shower disgusting, and renovations or repairs look half completed. Will not stay here ever again!

This place was not cleaned well. Dust in corners and on tables, Cloth chairs dirty and a toy left by a previous occupant. The bed was the worst. Old spiring mattress that sagged. The bed must have been over 15+ years old. We visited our child at Cal Poly and all we did at Motel was "try to sleep". Mattress was so uncomfortable. Everything else we could deal with. We knew this place would not have any "extras" but we did expect a decent mattress. If all you want to do is save money, this is your place. If you want anything else, keep looking. A positive comment: It had hot water.

The Homestead motel had an issue with the air conditioning so we were moved to the Roadway Inn across the street since it was the same ownership. Very nice rooms. I stayed at the Homestead on a previous trip. It is a great place. Staff is hard to understand, but are friendly and attentive. It's like going back in time at the Homestead! Love it!

At $45 a night, you expect a bit of grime and less-than-friendly service. The Homestead Motel was a pleasant surprise. Very clean, albeit plain, room. Smelled good- not like smoke and sweat and whatever else. You could tell that they thoroughly cleaned the place. Free wi-fi that actually worked. Nice staff. It doesn't have all the amenities but you can tell that they take pride in what they provide.
