To call this Place a flea bag is an insult to fleas and bags everywhere Judging by the caution tape and the blood stains we might as well have been staying at the Bates Motel... Actually it might have been cleaner. We checked into two pre-paid rooms booked through Orbitz, at check-in I was immediately charged an additional $20 room...

Seems like a good location for the OC... BUT, it was AWFUL!! Freaky people loitering everywhere, felt very unsafe. Got hit up for spare change on the stairwell. YUCK! Room smelled.. people in and out of rooms all night long. Nasty bed. Go anywhere else but here!

The property is relatively easy to get to. Average room type but clean. The pool was adequate and there were plenty of food choices in the area. The upper level rooms seem to be more quiet than the ones on the first floor

I read a lot of really negative reviews about this place, but I had a really great experience. I stayed for 2 nights and I found my stay to be very pleasant, clean, quiet, and safe. Nothing bad to say here.

The place was clean, roomy enough, had fridge, microwave and simple breakfast. Staff was nice and accommodating. Price was reasonable and less than other like facilities. This is so close to lots of restaurants, including and In 'N Out burger in front of the inn.

Room was a good price and worked fine for the two of us to stay one night. Friendly and helpful staff. Ice machine on our side of the building was broken, so we had to walk all the way over to the far end of the lot where the lobby was to get ice. The red stir sticks in the...

Would stay again but only for one night. rooms are small and can only fit one queen size bed. Clean room but the bathrooms need a little maintenance. Outside pool and hot tub were working great and very clean. Hotel next to freeway..a plus.

I found this place last minute and had not read any reviews and wasn't happy about staying here but was exhausted from travel and desperate. My room had a terrible smell, the bathtub and shower curtain still had dirt spots, dead spider in the bathroom, lampshade hanging from the ceiling over a lightbulb, large gap under entry door. The doors...

Warning: this hotel has a bug and cleanliness problem. We want to warn as many people as possible about this hotel. Our rate was $89/night + tax so our expectations were reasonable. We try never to compain and this is our first review post. Although the place is run down, we were willing to overlook any superficial issues until the...
