I just wish we'd read the reviews before checking in. Paper thin walls and ceiling meant no sleep. Heaters that looked dangerous. A couple of threadbare towels. One piece of soap. Our room felt damp and dirty. Coat hangars over the television. Oreos and donuts+free breakfast. It wasn't even cheap. I could go on, but frankly it need major renovation.

We rented a king sized room with a spa bath. All that was provided was one bar of soap, nothing extra. No tissues, kettle, or basic comforts you usually receive even in cheaper rooms we’ve had elsewhere. I didn't see a heater, and the only cooling was a dusty old pedestal fan that we had to put on because we...

if you know what slum lords own, go to this place. I cant believe the price we paid for to stay here.. I would think this is more for a crack house or homeless shelter. This place needs renovated bad. Knocked down and start all over, maybe they can hire some real handy men to fix the electrical and walls...

I have traveled a lot and have learned that cheap does not necessarily means bad. In the hotel / motel business cheap should mean simple, but always clean. I was very surprised with the overall conditions of the place, as reported by other reviewers. The most disgusting thing I noticed was the tap of the coffee "reservoir" used for breakfast,...

I was surprised to see a shove and a full refrigerator in a small kitchen. The shove was like one of the pictures seen on this app. With foil over it. The refrigerator had some words on it. No A.C. but there was a white fan. I accidentally tipped over my nail polish and it rolled down towards the back...

This was the worst experience ever!! The room smelled of mold and we noticed the carpet was wet. By the next morning, the carpet was soaked!! Apparently, there was a leak in the bathroom. We had to change rooms. We had asked for a non smoking room as our daughter is sensitive to smoke. She coughed all night long. In...

We needed a place to "crash" so we could go to the annual Pismo Beach Clam Fest and this was one of a few places available for the weekend. It was a pretty basic, "no frills" motel but suited our purposes just fine for the following reasons: (1) location within town so you could walk to shopping, restaurants and beach;...

This motel is overpriced, dirty, and is not customer friendly. No shampoo, there breakfast consist of boxed donuts, coffee only til 10am, parking was congested. The workers were nice but that's about it.
