Was nothing like pictures pool was closed room had a horrible smell couch was very dirty asked for two extra pillows got only one the other never made it carpet was filthy will never stay there again

Great Staff, clean rooms, Feeling of an older hotel brings a good feeling to the guest

Bit of traffic & late-night noisy neighbors. Would have liked coffee in the room or even at the office. Very comfortable room.

This is a low priced hotel and you get what you pay for. Reasonable size room for the price, but the cleanliness is terrible. Expect hairs on your sheets. Still, it is the cheapest thing in town so there’s that.

This was exactly the sort of California hotel that I do not ever want to stay in under any circumstances, and the photos on orbitz and branding seemed to suggest that it's possibly something quaint and maybe even historic. Staying here is only paying for and feeding the sickness.

The shower was stained with... I don’t even know what. It was also leaking into the carpet. Stains on everything and a hole in the wall that was filled with tissues. I checked in and then left to go straight to dinner. Then I got back and noticed all the filth and realized I could definitely not sleep there. They refused to refund my money and said it was because I was there for over two hours, but they could not show me the policy saying that. I definitely do not recommend.

Horrible service the lady was so rude and said check out time was at 7???

I had a wonderful time this weekend at this hotel. Thank you everyone

Great stay, not nearly long enough. Not your fault, simply my own

I have a small business and need a clean, cheap hotel with internet. It was very clean, cheap but not internet so it cannot be recommended for business use

..............don't recommend. Smelly and uncomfortable.

Older hotel they are upgrading the rooms. Otherwise it was quiet and bed was comfortable. Room was clean but dated furniture. Staff was nice to me even though I showed up at 2:30am.
