My husband and I stayed at Big A Motel for my daughter's graduation at Chapman University. I was very concerned about staying at this motel because of the bad reviews. Still, I reserved the place because it is walking distance to Chapman University and 3 min drive from my daughter's rental house. We were pleasantly surprised! The room was clean,...

We booked this room last minute for a business trip. The staff was very accommodating and helpful - they were even able to upgrade our bedroom which was awesome. We stayed for one night, but are definitely open to staying at this place again.

I'm glad I was working a lot when I stayed here, as the motel was basic. I had to ask for extra toilet roll twice. Did not get a very warm welcome. If your looking for somewhere cheap and not bothered about comforts. Stay here.

This was sold to us as a 3 star property by Hotels.com. I wouldn't even give it 1 star... The front desk clerk sits behind a solid glass wall reserved more for a bank or convenience store in a bad area. The room was dirty and in very poor condition. Out in front of our room were abandoned cars and...

Why I gave them 4 stars? Here's why first, they have friendly staff, second they good guest service and third, they almost close in Disneyland. Everything is good and one thing they should change the perfume in the room because it smell weird. They have almost clean in the room and they have microwave and refrigerator. One thing is really...

First off, the is NO breakfast. Second, the sliding doors both had frigid artic air drafting through, room temperature when we entered felt like 40°F. The heater did counter the cold, eventually. Draft was enough to keep the heater blowing full blast, all night, with the fan in "AUTO".

We came to this property not knowing what to expect. We came off the Amtrak in Anaheim, hopped a OCTA bus for about 5 minutes and were here. Much to my delight, there was a laundromat around the corner. Much to my honey's delight there was a taqueria. The rooms are not super clean. But clean enough. The staff is...

“There are no good rooms here. They're very mediocre. But the bottom line is that if the people aren't respectful of basic procedures and they don't follow protocol, why give them your business?”
