Who knew that a Motel 8 would be this nice. I'll start with the Friendly guy at the front desk from Fiji. Very Polite and Kind. The Room was extremely Clean. I just didn't expect such a large, well kept room like this from a Motel 8 in the middle of nowhere.

The Motel keeper was such an amazingly friendly guy. Everything was super okay! Rooms clean, the motel is reaaallyy nice! They've got a laundry, coffee breakfast and a pool. It is at an main traffic street, so we thought it could be loud at night im the room, but it wasn't! I would stay here again!!

We were visiting the Carrizo Plain and there are not a lot of choices of places to stay very nearby. The Motel 8 worked well for our purposes. Clean, no frills, flat screen TV, free wifi, quiet, and only $60 total. The furniture wasn't the best looking, but the bed was comfortable. We stayed here eleven years ago and we will stay here again next time we visit the Carrizo Plain. Hope it's not another eleven years!

Room Tip: Upstairs was quiet.

After reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor, and knowing how long we would be on the road did we decide to reserve a room. Be forwarned, it's a truckers / field workers Motel in that 90 % of the people are Loud & Obnoxious and could care less that others are trying to get some much needed rest. The spent the afternoon laughing, drinking, and shouting at each other. When we checked in the "Host Girl" could have cared less if we where there or not, so in the middle of nowhere, and Maricopa is in the middle for sure, you do not have a choice. The room itself was very clean, everything did work fine ( flat screen TV, bathroom, bed was fine too ) and in the morning after 7 am you have coffee in the Lobby, nothing more. Wi Fi was total crap, never would stay on...Pool was very clean, If you want to raise Hell and no one to care if you do, then this is your place, neighborhood Dogas barked all night too... $55 bucks a night. But better to stay on the road and go elsewhere...

Room Tip: go elsewhere....

I have reviewed Motel 8 before, but I so much enjoy the place and the surrounding area, I wanted to give an update. This is a family-owned location in a little town that is near Carrizo Plain National Monument, Wind Wolves Preeserve, and the Los Padres National Forest. The motel is reasonably priced, and the rooms are simple, basic and clean. The pool is sparkling clean and refreshing. Motel 8 is a great base for exploring the area. Unlike some other parts of California that are packed with visitors from all over the world, here you can visit some naturally beautiful areas and enjoy the quiet and solitiude. It's also relatively close to Los Angeles (120 miles) so you can do a weekend visit without too much driving.
