What a great nights sleep in room 8. The room was recently remodeled and was very clean. The owner, you could only wish all motels took care of its customers as he does. The price was the most reasonable in town. If you stay here, I'm sure your review will be as great.

For some nostalgia down Route 66, we decided to stay at one of the reconditioned motels that has been around for decades. And we weren't disappointed! Understand for a price in the mid 50's this is a basic property but a tremendous value. The room was fresh and extremely clean, the beds super comfortable, the internet and tv solid, and...

Our experience was the same as the other reviewers who rated La Mesa as excellent. It was smooth and faultless. We stopped overnight during a long road trip. We called to make the reservation several months in advance (we were lucky to be able to plan ahead) and confirmed by phone 2 days before we arrived. Checkin: effortless, professional, and...

Very nice, clean room on route 66, perfect for our one-night stay on the way to Colorado! The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the refrigerator and microwave were nice to have available. It was great to find such a nice, clean, well-priced room in Santa Rosa!

This really is the perfect stop when traveling along I-40/Route 66. The owner was so helpful and accommodating. The room was spotless. The bed was comfortable. And all for a VERY affordable price. Call ahead and you will be glad you did!

This place was the greatest. We felt like we had stepped back to the 50's. Your reservation is taken over the phone with no security deposit. Jjust your word that if you are not coming to cancel in a reasonable amount of time. The owners work at this place that was handed down through the generation. The rooms were clean,...

Like all of these vintage motels they are small but how much room do you need to watch TV and sleep. Room was super clean and bed was very good. The bath room and shower were also really clean. Motel had good internet so that I was able to stream Netflix movies and the TV was DirectTv with about 100...

totally clean & very well managed. I would definitely recommend staying here. Call ahead for a reservation. We stayed on a Tuesday night & they were full. Only 18 rooms available that I could see. Too bad all motels arent this clean & comfortable.
