I stayed for just one night with a friend (it was booked in my friend's name). It was perfect for us to stay at on our way to see the wildflowers in Carrizo Plains Monument. We had a 2nd floor room and easily parked right below the room - short walk from the stairs. The manager of the hotel was...

Nothing fancy about this property, but it was clean, comfortable and affordable. Served well as a stop on I-5 in route to L.A. It is about 6 miles south of the larger motel fast food cluster at Buttonwillow. The room was clean and well appointed. The large flat screen TV had a very good channel variety. Everything worked perfectly. Breakfast...

Room was clean enough. Definitely in need of some painting and maintenance, however. Nothing particularly exciting about the location. We were not expecting much for the price, but were happy with it overall. Included breakfast is extremely skimpy.

It was right by I-5, so super loud all night long, couldn't fall asleep at all. No breakfast at 8 am, the waffle mix was gone. Toilet was stuck, really gross. And the beds smell like mold. The price was pretty good though.

Hairs in the bed, holes in the sheets, interconnecting door that was open and apparently no key to lock it. Had to drag a very heavy chest of draws across the door to stop anyone gaining entry. Manager was most unhelpful and dismissive. We felt very unsafe and not well rested after our nights stop. Take my advice and avoid...

They charge $10.00 for pets so that makes them dog tolerant rather than dog friendly in my book. Room was clean and had a nice size mini-fridge and a microwave. Sufficient outlets for our electronic gadgetry and good wi-fi coverage. Our room (108) didn´t have a closet for hanging clothes and the only mirror was in the small bathroom and...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night before continuing north on a long trip. This hotel was very clean, comfortable and met all of our needs. But the reason I am leaving this review is because of the staff and service we received. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and professional. We had a couple of...

Rolled in after midnight. Had confirmed reservation. Room 217 smelled, but the bed was great and clean. We got 5-6 hours of sleep before heading out. Getting there earlier might have been less odorous.

Driving back from L.A we pulled in at 11:30 pm. Room was clean. Plenty of channels on the tv and the room was clean. Bed was comfortable and there is a 24 hour convenience store and Jack in the Box across the street. Price was right, $67 bucks for two queen beds.

The room is spacious and comfortable I had a great night's rest and it was much needed after Disneyland. I'm not picky I was personally just looking for a bed and a shower and I got a great deal on this hotel
