This motel is a older, but in good condition. We liked the pool area, and the excellent hot tub. It is landscaped to look like a mini volcano with a water fall. The cement tub is large enough for several people and the temperature was good. The room was average, but large enough to not feel crowed. It was very...

Great place, I have stayed here several times. I keep coming back because the location is perfect and the huge hot tub is the best!! Newly remodeled rooms are great. I would have left 5 stars but the rooms need to have a coffee maker in them. Also it would be nice if the downstairs rooms closest to the pool...

We have 2 dogs--one large, one medium-sized. This hotel has a sliding door off the bedroom area, and beyond the door, is a nice grassy area. It sure makes it easy to take the dogs in/out as needed! The hotel itself is decent and reasonably priced, but the convenience of the patio makes it worth while! No breakfast :( though.

We stayed this past week. We got a rate of $69 a night directly on their website (while hotels.com was offering the same rate, they added an extra $18.50 in fees, so why book there?). As for the motel, it's a pretty basic place. We were kindly greeted at the front desk and experienced plenty of parking and coffee/tea. They...

Great staff, easy check-in. Gave us a good tip to try the Thursday Night Farmer's Market. While the hallways were a little loud, at night we did not hear anything else. The hotel is close to the freeway but it had no impact on the quality of our stay. The beds were comfortable. We did however, have to plug in...

It is over priced for what it is. The Motel 6 across the street is a better deal. The carpets in hallways and rooms were really dirty, mattress is lumpy and squishy, parking lot is potholed, property is adequately maintained but worn. Security seems to be an issue. There was broken safety glass on the ground next to our car...

Thank you so much for your kind words about our beautiful roses and friendly staff. We are happy that you liked both!

Was visiting Cal Poly with my son and looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the area. The tripadvisor reviews seemed pretty good so thought we'd give it a try. Overall the room was fine except it didn't feel as clean as I'd like. Just a bit on the grungy side. It was quiet and not expensive for the area,...

Thank you for your kind review regarding our hotel. We are glad that you found the hotel affordable. We have just completed the remodel of our rooms. They are all fresh and beautifully furnished. Unfortunately, some of our guests had been assigned the older version of the hotel as our remodel was underway, so we hope you come back and...

This is an older property a true motel, that has been updated and renovated to a good standard. The rooms are well maintained but small. The amenities are good and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. I was more than happy with the value proposition here, recommended.

THis property is kept up well but is obviously pretty old. It really suffers by being surrounded by several other newer, nicer properties. However, it was clean and quiet. We stayed on a Thursday evening so it wasn't full. The towels were nice and fluffy for a budget place and everything was clean and the carpet was nice. The hot...
