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.

You can stay for much less and still have the comfort of the bigger chains. As a traveler, I have stayed in the cheapest to the most costly hotel rooms. After a few free breakfasts in a chain hotel, you realize eating at Denny's might be better. There is a great breakfast at Country Waffles next door. This inn was one of my favorite hotel stays from the last 12 years and we stayed an extra day. The managers are very diligent in ensuring your room is clean and comfortable. There is an extra pillow and blanket in the dresser. There is a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in your large spacious room along with two lounge chairs. HBO with multiple channels.

The room was good. King bed, clean. Only the fridge wasn't working which was a bummer. Parking was possible right in front of the room as we had a ground floor room. The lady who worked at the reception was very friendly, asked about our trip and all. It was a pleasant stay.

I booked this place after reading some good reviews via Google. The room is nasty and filthy. The guy at the window didn't bother to check his computer even though I wasted my time booking online. The old school tv barely worked. The only positive thing was that the heat worked. I won't be coming back to this dump!

We had 3 rooms. Older, family run place. All rooms were spotlessly clean. The one nearest the road was noisy, so ask for one of the back ones. Several restaurants within 2 blocks so we didn't need to move the car. Flock of ducks next door were cute and not a problem.

We travel often between Riverside and the Bay Area, and use this wonderful hotel as our late night stop. It is very well priced, and is about 5 hours out from our house. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, the beds are cozy, and the family-run business has friendly people at the counter, even when we get in so late. Getting up the next day, we drive into the Bay Area rested and happy. Although the Sun Star is a few minutes off the freeway, it is well worth the detour!

I chose this place because of all the great TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. It was like coming home to family. I called ahead because i would arrive late, and she gave some route suggestions and encouragement. He was up to greet me at midnight with a smile and a hearty, "You made it!" It's a no-frills room, but the owners put their heart into providing a clean place and a welcoming experience at an affordable price. I believe in supporting people who care about the work they do. Great waffles next door as well, and Los Banos has cheaper gas than you get along I-5. Hot water, dark curtains, off-street parking.

This motel has no frills. However it is very clean, simple, and a great place if you are driving through. We were on the way to Monterey and too tried to drive another mile. The bathroom is clearly just updated. It is very clean. The pillows are almost non existent and the beds are hard. However for a stopover for $60 bucks it was great.

This Inn is my very favorite among my travels all summer for my work schedule! The managers are very friendly and caring. The rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities one needs as I stay a week at a time. They are constantly upgrading the property and rooms beautifully! An old fashion inn with personality and comfort, not a modern, boring hotel. Love the atmosphere!

I asked for a non smoking room, the room smelled like smoke, it was gross. The toilet leaked onto the floor around the bottom, the towels were like shop towels, they were cheap, old, rough one had a lipstick stain on it and the other a large hole ripped in it. I used an extra shirt I had to dry myself after a shower instead of one of those towels.
The sheets on the bed were thin and cheap. The bed was uncomfortable.
The young man at the front desk was nice but I don't know how you can take someones money for a room like that and feel like your delivering a good product.
