They charge $10.00 for pets so that makes them dog tolerant rather than dog friendly in my book. Room was clean and had a nice size mini-fridge and a microwave. Sufficient outlets for our electronic gadgetry and good wi-fi coverage. Our room (108) didn´t have a closet for hanging clothes and the only mirror was in the small bathroom and... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night before continuing north on a long trip. This hotel was very clean, comfortable and met all of our needs.

Rolled in after midnight. Had confirmed reservation. Room 217 smelled, but the bed was great and clean. We got 5-6 hours of sleep before heading out. Getting there earlier might have been less odorous.

Driving back from L.A we pulled in at 11:30 pm. Room was clean. Plenty of channels on the tv and the room was clean. Bed was comfortable and there is a 24 hour convenience store and Jack in the Box across the street. Price was right, $67 bucks for two queen beds.

Ok if you just need to rest for a few hours. Curtains were partially off the rod and floors were not clean. Small beds but they were comfortable enough. A plus for the room is that it had a ceiling fan. Other party traveling with our group just had a hole in the ceiling. Not sure I would stay here... More

The bed is fine and the room is clean. Forget about the breakfast. It is not eatable and the cleaniness is questionable. The location the highway is excellent. The pool is next to the parking place and the road?? The Motel is undergoing some facelifting, so perhaps it will become more attractive. The furnitures are of older heritage. The price... More
