Was just looking for stopover lodging on our way home. The location was good....right off the 101 and just a few blocks to town. This motel is tired and worn and in need of updating. There was a broken handle on the bathroom door...the frosted glass was half peeled off of the bathroom window...But the room was clean, bed comfortable...

Immediately when we walked into the room it reeked of bleach and mustiness. Every time someone got up and walked around we asked ourselves "who farted?" We realized no one did and it was just the odor of the carpet. Stains and dirt cover the walls and floor. I even found an old black stain on the bed sheets. The...

Putrid. Dirty room. Stains on carpet and furniture. Rude customer service. Avoid this place at all costs. This is the worst motel that I have ever seen. The smell was unbearable. The owner was very angry and yelled at our group when we canceled the room after the first night. We couldn't take it anymore.

Just stayed for a night since I had business to take care of in town. Checking in was very easy, the desk staff was polite during my check in as well. The room was clean and comfortable, had a couple chairs and a table, a mini-fridge to keep any food I had with me, a clean shower and a decent...

I walked in office....Manager non chalantly came out. Acted....Non caring. I asked if he has rooms & I want to see one. He said what's there to see for $50. I said I want to see how bad the rooms are. He said go somewhere else. All that told me this is a horrible place. Owner/manager is foreign. Even the...

This place is the worst place to book a room. First off let me start off by saying the manager Jay and his wife are the rudest people you will ever come across. We booked two separate rooms for two days but upon walking into the rooms both rooms smelled really bad. One of the rooms were switched for us...

We stayed here for one night while touring Cal Poly. We reserved the hotel thru Booking.com. We originally thought we would be in the area for 3 nights but 30 days ahead of our stay I called the hotel directly and spoke with the manager and reduced our stay to 1 night and he sent me a confirmation. Fast forward...

It's always nice to be welcomed when visiting or entering somewhere new. You don't need much, nothing over the top but a hello or smile would certainly be nice when you are paying to stay somewhere!! Check in here was most off putting with the lady behind the desk not even having the courtesy to say hello or look at...

If you stay here, brace yourselves for a very unfriendly and unhelpful receptionist. After travelling 4 hours from Yosemite, we just wanted a simple check in and to get some rest. We got to the hotel about 10 o’clock and had to pick up a rather old looking phone to wake someone in reception to check us in. instead of...
