Hansen, United States
Reviewed 24 April 2016

Difficult to charge your telephone. I did like the rooms and wished we could have spent another night. I would definitely tecommend this room again. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were large where you actually did not feel so confined like many rooms.

This is my first time here and I love the place. It is set off the street and very quiet. Rooms are nicely maintained and very clean as is the large handicap equipped bathroom which impressed me. It has everything you need for a great price. In the room there is nice desk for laptops, plenty of room even with...

If you stay here bring your own toiletries and be sure to stay on the second floor. We chose this hotel because it was away from the noise from the train tracks but I don't know that the trade-off was worth it. To add insult to injury, my new car was hit in the parking lot and the clerk at...

Very clean room. It was a safe place to stay. Searched for plugs to plug into electronics in but found enough eventually. Was woken up at 3:30 a.m. by loud voices and laughing. Did not last too long. The breakfast had a good variety of choices. The staff was friendly and helpful.

When we first arrived on our trip home from the Grand Canyon we of course were tired. Customer service in the front was friendly and we recieved prompt service. Making our way to our room as we opened the door there was a deathly fragrance of smoke. It was terrible, we thought ok it's an old motel but after my...

Don't think the lower price means you are staying at a dump. Our family of 4 stayed here on the way to Joshua Tree National Park. It is on the busy main strip but we had a peaceful and quiet night's sleep. The room was excellent and the price was great. Spacious, clean and updated. The property was safe. We...

Reception helpful and put us further back from the road. Has good value with breakfast included asI got 2queens for $60 for weekday. Also there is no elevator so anyone who can not carry luggage upstairs to second floor should stay on first floor. The walls are a little thin so you can hear footsteps above you if you are...

Much nicer than expected. Great staff who held our room until 6AM. The beds were comfortable, the room had plenty of space, they had a pretty good breakfast, and a very nice, clean pool. I would absolutley stay again.

hotel was very old but had been refurbished. Rooms were clean but nothing out of the ordinary. The outside had been recently pained in Southwest colors, but the grounds were not attratived.

Budget hotel with easy access from Interstate 15. Very reasonable cost when traveling thru area for 1 night ( spring training Scottsdale to Northern California). Numerous choices for offsite eateries. Clean hotel, outdated furnishings. Refrigerator and microwave in room. Small led tv.
