Great rates, clean, quiet, definetly recommend staying here. They are currently remolding the rooms with hardwood floors, etc. The room I stayed in still has carpet but it is extremely cleen. My feet didn't turn black like they did at the Quality Inn. Book on Priceline for savings.

Room Tip: Upstairs is being remodeled first

crack head/roach motel that is being remodeled by incompetent contractors, it literally looked as if the contractors that were upgrading the motel didn't know what the heck they were doing. Room was dirty like it hadn't been cleaned properly in a really long time! Walked in and found a mystery stain on the comforter, dead bug in the center of the bed, and long black hairs all over everything. Obviously no cleaning had been done! The staff, however, were extremely polite and helpful! That is the reason for the two stars.

The only down side to this place is if you stay long term there is often difficulty with housekeeping. #1. They do not have enough people staffed. #2. If the Housekeepers do not finish in a timely manner they get sent home before they get to finish servicing the stay-overs. #3. The "Fill In" Housekeeper (when regular Housekeeper has a day off or is sick) is lazy and she will stand out side the door and expect you to bring her the trash cans and the dirty towels. Sometimes she will skip the room completely. #.4 The Housekeepers that clean the stay overs do not get to your room sometimes till 6 or 7pm at night and sometimes even 8pm at night. Which is not practical at all for the people who stay there that work.

Room Tip: Room facing the restaurant has a better view as you can see the street.

Stayed here for one night - place was clean. Staff helpful. It's dated and dark the decor but fine. It did say non smoking but it definitely smelt of smoke.
There is a diner opposite which was nice although I think pricey for what it was.
There is lots nearby - Walmart ect - I would say you need a car.

The location and amenities are ok. The room was out of the 50's, baseboards missing. The phone was a challenge to get a connection. I had to find my own way to get connected to use WiFi, and then had to re-connect every other day. There is no continental breakfast to speak of. Four choices of boxed cereal, milk, orange juice, bananas, the smallest apples ever, what appears to be danishes of some sort in packaging and coffee. Not even bread or a toaster to have a piece of toast. Ended up eating breakfast out. The pool and hot tub, tiny, the photo deceiving. I will not return nor would not recommend this as a vacation motel in sunny California.
