I read reviews before booking and read them after we stayed. We were just not impressed with this hotel--except that our room was spotlessly clean. Our room was tiny and had some kind of smoky mirror all along one wall which we didn't care for. The breakfast selection was okay but limited. No coffee maker in the room. Friendly desk...

Staff was really friendly but I just don't think the hotel was what I expected. The 2 room suite was horrible smelling when we arrived--enough to want to turn right around. This improved after running the air for a while. There is no bedside lamp which was annoying because I like to read at night. Stove door doesn't open because...

We are sorry that your room wasn't what you expected. However, the oven door does open you have to lift up on it. We have rented this room out to long term stays. We hope that you will come back and give us another chance to make things right

I loved the counter shelf and drawer feature over the room air-conditioning unit. Wonderful use of space. Beds were very comfortable, room was larger than expected. Only downside was no fitness center onsite - but they do offer the use of one nearby.

The hotel appeared to be fairly new or recently remodeled. Facilities were in excellent condition. The room was immaculate and had both a microwave and refrigerator. Wifi was fast. The hotel has a '50s theme, and there's a '50s-style diner on an adjacent property. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel that offered such value for the dollar....

Thanks for your great review. We are glad you were pleased & had a nice stay. We are actually a 16 year old hotel, with no recent remodel. We just understand that we don't have a chains' reputation to ride on, so we have to make our first impression a good one. We look forward to your next visit.

I stay somewhere nearly every weekend and hands down this has been the best motel ever. The 50's decor was awesome. The staff was delightful and room clean and the bed was perfect. The low price topped it off making this my go to home away from home.

This hotel is cute, comfortable, and most importantly, clean! After having a terrible experience with another hotel, I booked a night here. I was so relieved to spend a great night here in a room with James Dean decor. The room had everything I needed and a continental breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. I will definitely stay...

I had booked this hotel on TripAdvisor but when we arrived they had lost our reservation because they upgraded their computer system. Luckily it was a slow time and they had plenty of rooms left. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the James Dean room, very nicely decorated. The only complaint I have was the...

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the booking issue. We occasionally have issues with them getting us the reservations on time, due to the time lapse. We are sorry about the musty smell in the room. With the change in weather it is sometimes hard to keep the ac's set to keep that out, no matter how hard we...

Found this hotel on trip advisor. Read reviews and decided to give it a try for the night. The property and room were very clean. We arrived after 7:00 p.m. Check in was quick and easy. My husband and I have not slept in a double bed for YEARS. It wasn't good! Pillows were pretty bad also. I thought we...

“The suites are in a separate building. The motel is owned by a local builder which probably accounts for the buildings looking almost new.”
