We were trying to save some money visiting friends over the Thanksgiving holiday and we really just needed a room to sleep in for the night. The room was very small and cramped. There was an overpowering smell of what I assume was some kind of cleanser/air freshener that reminded me of a man who wears too much cologne. There...

Place is clean, friendly, and safe. Place just got a paint job and looks good. I have been staying here weekly for two months now, business and have had a good experience. Manager makes us feel welcomed. Wi-Fi worked and that helped me get a little more work done and stay in touch with family.

I was looking for an inexpensive motel for the Thanksgiving holidays....this was the less expensive...it was clean, quiet, centrally located. and the gentleman at the desk could not have been more pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend and plan to stay here again when I am in the area.

The motel is a little tired, but it has all the amenities including a refrigerator, microwave and safe. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast is basic cereal, but that's exactly what I eat at home! My wife and I have been staying there for the past several years when we visit our daughter and grandchildren...

This motel is a little worn, but the price is right in a high rent district. Rooms on the other side of 101 are twice the price. They have few amenities and CalTrain rumbles by right across El Camino, but the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the in room coffee was surprisingly good. The breakfast was not...

It is an old building and not well maintained. Breakfast was terrible and there was not enough parking in front of the rooms so as a single lady on vacation I was a little nervous parking in a dark space in back. I also did not feel comfortable using the hot tub as it was located in a little room...
