This was our second stay here (the first was in 2017). We had a family urgency that required several days in town, and I wanted to stay here again. The rooms are very, very clean, and the microwave and refrigerator were in good condition. We brought our own travel coffee-maker, so we did not use theirs. The tub was very clean, and I enjoyed my soaks in hot baths. Their towels are a low point but we picked up a bath sheet a Walmart down the road. It is on a main artery through town, and very close to shopping and restaurants. The couple who operates this establishment are ultra-nice people, and I remembered that from the first time we stayed there. This place lodges migrant workers but that didn't bother us. The people above us were sometimes noisy late at night but were often too exhausted to really care. If you want basic and clean, give this place a try.

Booked ahead on booking.com and got for $65 - up to $80 on day of and $108 on other sites. Desk clerk was very lovely and accommodating. 1st room had noisy A/C. Next was quiet but: no hand towels, only 1 washcloth, knob missing from floor lamp (had to use wall plug), sink lever could not be moved to adjust temp, oval toilet bowl had an undersized round seat on it. Desk clerk gave me a hand towel that was thread bare and literally in shreds. All of white towels were gray/dirty looking. No tissues in room. Smallest bars of soap I have ever seen - literally unusable. On the positive side: bedspread and curtain looked new, clean tile instead of carpet, good tv, pretty comfortable bed. Seems like a place for mostly migrant workers - plan to be awakened by 4:30 as they warm up (3) buses.

They were able to take us in when we arrived in the middle of the night when our other reservation fell through at the Travelodge in Los Banos. We were treated rudely there but Sun Star was more welcoming. The staff is nice and have no problem accomedating to your needs.

I am a bit surprised at the positive reviews. First of all, the room had an overpowering stench of chemical disinfectant. It actually made it difficult to sleep. The room had not been updated and was old with numerous plaster patches in the ceiling. There was no blanket on the bed only a thin bedspread. I asked for a blanket and got another bedspread. The towels were old and dirty looking. Even though the hotel seemed nearly empty, we were put in the last room of the hotel on ground level and the noise from the highway was quite loud.

I was in the area visiting friends & reserved a room on line for 1 night. The couple who run it are very pleasant & were glad to add 2 more night's with no issues. It may not seem like much on first look, but the room was very clean & quiet & the owner makes it a point to

Stayed for one night recently. Lovely people run this place - friendly and very accommodating. Not at all bothered by our having a trailer to park. Room was impeccably clean. They are in process of renovating the rooms with new mattresses, and I think ours was already done because we sure slept well. Had all the expected amenities: Microwave, refridge, hair-dryer, ironing board, and coffeemaker. Only thing I was disappointed in was no "plug" in the tub. Big, cozy, very clean tub made me want to soak in a hot one, but .... couldn't. The towels were in real sad shape, too, but I'm sure they'll replace them soon. I have family in that area and will definitely lodge here in the future.

The rooms have been upgraded but they left out the bathroom. Fairly comfortable room although a bit small. Then one goes back a few decades when entering the bathroom. Could have done better with soap rack and towel rack .

I can't say enough about my daughter's and my stay here at this inn. After traveling the coast of California and having a horrible experience the night before, we hit the jackpot with Sun Star Inn! Lyne, an owner was just too nice and welcoming. After having been turned away after making our reservations at another hotel, we didn't know what to expect. Lyne was so kind to us, like we were family. She even brought TWO fresh picked cantaloupes to our room the next morning. The hotel was as nice as Lyne was! It was very clean and just plain refreshing! Just an absolute perfect ending to our wonderful trip up the coastline of California. You won't be disappointed at all in the Sun Star Inn! I'm sure her husband is as nice as she is! I have to give this hotel a rating of ten plus! Linda Fox and Natalie Wilson

They remodeled their rooms so there's no dirty carpet to worry about. I really liked the new textured flooring that is both comfortable and clean to walk barefoot on. The bathroom area is tiled and spotless. The sink area was spacious so you could lay out all your toiletries and the soft lighting above was perfect because I don't like harsh lighting especially for doing my makeup...the owner told me they actually use energy-saving lights! They also have a minifridge and microwave, which is practically unheard of these days so MAJOR PROPS! Amenities: comfy beds, free working WIFI, plenty of channels on their new TVs, clean towels/sheets/floors, alarm clock& radio provided, A/C units to combat that desert heat, plenty of outlets, minifridge and microwave, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, and coffee/tea maker are all included! Management is very friendly and courteous and I definitely enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend you call them at their direct business number to get the best rates!
