This review may surprise some as it did for me. I checked in last night at around 10pm on 3/2. The front desk gentleman was very nice. No complaints. Check in was smooth and effortless. However, after getting to my room and eating dinner I am disturbed by loud noises outside. I look through the little hole in the door and I witness an older gentleman beating his wife out on the balcony. From what I could tell he had punched her a few times, and then proceeded to front kick her so hard she fell backward and smacked onto the balcony floor. I didn't see any staff come out for at least 10-15 minutes while this was going on. But even worse, when the gentleman did he did not call the cops, physically intervene, and merely issued them a warning. He called it their "first warning" and allowed them to go back to their room. The other guests were shouting at the couple to keep it down. The husband or boyfriend had a bluetooth speaker blaring loud hippie style music during the entire altercation. After the couple went into the room, they proceeded to yell at each other for at least an hour. At that point I packed up my things, left the key in the room and left. I stayed at another hotel down the street. But it gets better. When I called to request a refund the hotel manager refused saying they didn't have any other complaints. This is not true because the staff wouldn't have known about the incident unless someone had called the front desk. So here I am out $71 and I am unable to get a refund, so I am posting this review to let others know the total lack of hospitality and good will at Econo Lodge. I will never stay there again. They allowed domestic violence to occur in plain sight, did not call the cops, did not throw out the guests, and did not issue me a refund. An absolute failure of a hotel.

My daugher and her toddler needed a safe place for the night and she had just misplaced her credit card. I called the front desk and tried to reserve a room for her using my credit/debit card. I was told I could not pay for the room unless I was there in person to sign (I live across the country). I explained the issue to him, but he just repeated that I could not rent a room with a credit card unless I could sign the papers. I pointed out that this was leaving a mother and child without a safe place to sleep for the night. He said that it was not his problem. He added it was my daughter's fault for not being prepared to pay for her room. At that point I ended the conversation - I thought that with his attitude this hotel would not be an appropriate place for my daughter.

The staff at checkin were very friendly. The room was clean and appeared well maintained. The area the motel is located in is... just ok. There seemed to be various people hanging around the parking lot when I came in late one night, and one guy taking a leak against a wall (not the motels fault obviously). It is located close to amenities. Outside noise is minimal from inside the room. I was there for 2 nights on business and I would stay there again. The price is right, friendly staff, clean rooms, continental breakfast (I didn’t have the breakfast).

We’ve stayed here two times now since we’ve come to California and we love it. The price has been under $70 both times on weekdays. The rooms are clean, the beds are oh so comfy. My husband and I never agree on beds and we both loved them. Our daughter even slept in which is not normal for her! I’m not even sure what their amenities are because I coop myself up in the room it’s so nice. Great TV with all the channels we need. The place is spotless. When we check in late and are crabby, the front desk is super nice to us. Sorry that I’m always a zombie! Haha Their breakfast is pretty good too. I’m just super happy it’s a variety of things and my daughter eats everything. Much better than other hotels in the area that are the same price point. We will have to start coming here more often for staycations! 🙂
