This was the ONLY hotel available in San Luis and looking back, we should have pushed ahead and found lodging somewhere else along our route. Paid $227. for a sad little motel. I will admit to it looking clean and the bed was comfortable. That is the only plus we could find. Freeway noise. Guest noise. Bathroom door (101) would...

Stopped in late for the night. Skeptical since the reviews were not the best but I really enjoyed it. The room was big and clean. Beds were comfortable and the bedding was new. Bathroom was small but that was no big deal. I would definitely consider trying another Inn in another city based on our nice experience.

we booked this because we had stayed at others in the chain and been very pleased with them. Made the booking by telephone and booked a handicap accessible room. On arrival we were given a room next door to the accessible one and told that this was suitable - it wasn't! The room was quite shabby, no plug in the...

Horrible. This has been a nightmare. Dirty. No fresh air. No breakfast! NOTHING!! First the one room was no finished. Then the second room was not done and then we had to ask the cleaning woman to come back cleaning cause there were grass and crumble on the carpet floor and hair in the bathroom. In the night noisy. We...

We rent a room there last May 18th 2013. A little kid (about15) was doing the check-inn. They asked us 108$ for a room very dirty: soiled carpet we didn't want to walk bare feet on this. The sink faucet was loose we had to use our two hands to make it working. The skirt of the bed was discusting....

The title sums it up. Lady at the front desk was very rude when we checked in. Got to the room, was nice. Still had a regular TV and not a flat screen. Shower would be hot, ice cold, scalding, ice cold, and back to hot. Our second day we left the room at 10:30am and came back at 3:30pm....

Stayed one night and couldn't wait to leave! TV reception on ABC & HBO channels was lousy, plus TV set must've been at least 10 or more years old. WiFi was horrible, only 1-2 bars most of the time. Pillows were paper thin and mattress was so-so. Heater only blew cool air and so was cold as heck in the...

Thank you Mr. Bruce J for your review, as a matter of fact we were expecting it because after using a room for few hours and comparing the rates of other area hotels you wanted to get a refund and upon not getting it so there comes all these problems and a review BUT you forget that before checking in...

I stayed 11 nights on a business trip. Every night when I got back to my room the room service did a thorough job of keeping the room clean. And it always smelled great! I would recommend this motel to anyone who wants a no frills inexpensive place to stay and it has all the amenities that you would expect...

this room was quiet, inexpensive, and clean. we parked right outside and were a quick drive away from the downtown area, but also right next to the highway south. there is a washer and dryer outside downstairs next to the ice machine, which is convenient if necessary

I come here just for sleep, as I need to continue my trip. Motel is quite standard. Simple breakfast, coffee tea, a waffle maker and toast on the house.
