Reviewed 10 January 2016

1st room they put us in, had to queen beds, was suited for 4 people. They forgot to mention the 400 roaches that were in there as well, They were in the toilet, shower, and every corner of the room including the walls. We called the desk, the manager came down, apologized profusely, and mover us to another room. 2nd room had 2 double beds, not queens, gang tags in at least 3 places that were very visible. Mattresses were rounded, box springs on second bed were broke and put back together with staples. It was like sleeping in a saddle. Floor was filthy, and the rest of the room as well. Bed #2 had an old sock, plastic cup, kids toys, and a dead roach under it. It was not like they were hurting for rooms, maximum number of cars there was 6 and some of them seemed to be permanent residents. No chain latch on the door. The door appeared to have been kicked in, and re plastered around the door handle. The hinges of the door had been banged back into place so that they would work. There was a gap under the door that you could see daylight through. The heater/cooler had 2 speeds, either freezing or hot enough to cook on. The curtains and blankets in both rooms were riddled with holes. The walls in room #2 appeared to have been sliced with a knife. The light between the beds looked like it had been used to hit some one with. The faucet in the tub was loose, and ready to fall off. The bathroom, shower, and toilet was filthy. There was an ice machine, which cost $.25 but no ice bucket in the room. We were given 1 plastic cup in the room and 2 towels for 3 people to take showers. And unfortunately, we had to pay for both nights upfront when we checked in, or we would have come back home on Saturday instead of staying until Sunday morning. The heater/air conditioner sounded like a military tank running. The box springs on both beds were about 20 to 25 years old and were falling apart. The chairs that were with the table, were coming apart. The TV looked like someone had taken a BIC lighter and melted the buttons, the remote control had half the buttons missing plus the backing that held the battery. There were plenty of channels, IF you understood Spanish. Definitely will NOT stay in this motel ever again. My son woke up with bug bites.

There are limited places to stay in Hemet. I've stayed in most of them during my business trips. This motel was clean, quiet and had comfortable beds. The shower worked and had hot water.

If you're looking for simple accomodations, this is one of the better places to stay. Just ignore the hookers in the parking lot. The layout of the parked cars and motel buildings lend themselves to a relatively safe environment. I carry lots of gear in my Jeep and I was comfortable with parking in the provided spaces.

Room Tip: Above the office on the second floor is the best.

Rooms where in need of an update but clean, has small fridge which you don't get with Motel 6. You have my places with in walking distance to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. We where on the ground floor and heard no noise from upstairs or traffic once inside our room.
