    We didn't book a motel in advance and ended up in this motel. $110 including tax for this room is far overpriced. As others suggested,the owners are rather scary and very unhelpful. We stayed in the comfort inn two days later-lovely room and breakfast plus...More

    Unhelpful is never what we want to hear. We're sorry if our staff didn't make you feel welcome here. We're starting to remodel the motel right now so we can offer you a better stay in the future. I hope you'll come try out our...More

    To be honest it was passable because I was traveling with 2 other guys on a road trip for the UCLA vs. Stanford game and it did the trick. However, not a place to take your wife and kids. It was expensive because of the...More

    We're so disappointed to hear this. While we're glad it did the trick while you were in town for the game, just passable is never what we like to hear. Are you in the area often? We're currently renovating so we'd love to have you...More

    The lower level units revealed a high degree of sound from the unit above. A little tight in interior space but worked for one person if all you were going to do was sleep. The comfort of the bed was very good and the shower...More

    While we always welcome constructive feedback, it’s truly disappointing to read this review. It’s disheartening to hear you found our hotel “dirty,” “disgusting,” and “dishonest” as that’s not feedback we typically receive, nor is it the impression we wish to leave on our guests. We...More
