Looking for a hotel that is cheap, clean, safe and animal FRIENDLY, isn't always easy. Especially when I'm tired and having driven all day that's what I am today. Crown Motel is all of the above. No questions about my service dog 'Chilly' no extra charges and maybe the nicest room I've ever found in the ISA for $40+tax $4.... More

This is an older motel, but well run. Everything is clean and the managers are very helpful. We have stayed here twice now and find it a very suitable budget motel. We splurged and had the upgraded king bed room for $50. Better than Motel 6 for the same $. I would give it 3.5 stars if possible.

I checked-in for three nights while looking for an apartment in El Centro. The motel was clean, had a refrigerator, microwave, and the management, especially Patrick, was friendly and very helpful. I would come back again. The wifi was ready to go without hassle.
