“Good Crash Place, don't expect much more”
Reviewed 17 August 2010

If you are looking for an okay place to lay your head for sleep, then this place might just suit you. It will cost under $100 with tax. If you are hoping for a nice luxorius bed with amenities, than skip it. Good location. They have free continental bfast, but slip it and head to Compton's next door. Decent location. NIce people. Brutal beds.

After checking the reviews, I went and booked this place last weekend. What a huge mistake! The location was great but that was about all. The stairway going up to room 309 and the hallway were filthy and had a bad odor. The room : peeling paint on ceiling, dirty rug, and rundown looking. Alas, on day of departure discovered nasty stains all over sides of mattress. I still get upset when I think about that. I would never stay here again!

Stayed here for four nights in April. I was a bit hesitant at first after reading the reviews here, but was surprised.

First off, do not expect anything fancy here - you get what you pay for. For the $41 a night I payed, the place was great - if you are expecting the Hilton, go to the Hilton.

Arrived an hour before check in and the front desk got me into my room right away. The property is an older property, and it shows in all respects - dated buildings, bathrooms, no elevator, rooms that exit directly outside, etc. However the owners keep it the best that they can.

Upon entering the room I was surprised at the size of it, as it looks like it will be alot smaller from the outside. TV reception was good, wifi signal was strong, king sized bed was comfortable. They also have a pool which was closed when i was there but looks to be well kept. They also offer a free breakfast which I did not have. There is also a mini fridge in the toom, along with a safe.

The downside to this property is the age - especially the bathrooms. While clean, they definitley need to be renovated - think 1970's vintage pink with lemon yellow painted tile walls. Also it would have been nice if there was a do not disturb sign in the room when I arrived - I was awoken by the housekeeping staff the next morning. However this was rectified at that time, and being woken up was a minor hassle.

There is a restaurant next door, however they close at 4pm every day - so plan on getting there early. I never went there, but looking at the menu that was in the room the prices were great!!

Major plus and minus is that the property is right off of I-80. This makes it extremely convienient. However it also contributes to the noise level - especially since the rooms exit directly outside. Where my room was situated, I got the shine of headlights from cars turning off the main road onto the side room through my window every night.

All in all my stay was a pleasant one. So long as your expectations fit that of a $40 a night motel, you really won't be too disappointed.

Was pleasantly surprised because of listed reviews. Attended a wedding and wanted a close hotel to the event. Traveled with adult children and their partners. Found tastefully decorated, very clean rooms (had 3) with shampoo, hair dryer, refridgerator and microwave. Pool was small but looked inviting, . Staff was friendly and efficient and very cooperative. Had a great time and would definitely return. Restaurant next door was convneient and very good. This place is a gem!!!

An old hotel that has seen better days. It was clean enough for a man but not for a woman. We found it from a coupon magazine distributed in rest stops on the freeway. Very low price, but we got what we paid for. It's ok if you just need a place to sleep for one night. Continental breakfast was pretty bad, just a thermos of coffee and some rolls. But there is a great pancake restaurant next door. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Not a bad dal for the money. Wished we'd stayed here this year (10/08) instead of going to Days Inn. It's not pretty, but it is fairly centrally located.
