Si vous cherchez la tranquillité, le confort, un bon emplacement, évitez cet hôtel. Il est tout simplement horrible. Situé en bord de route, vous avez l’impression de dormir sur l’autoroute. Les murs sont tellement fins que vous savez quand votre voisin est debout. Les draps, les serviettes ont une hygiène douteuse. Ça ne vaut absolument pas le prix. A fuir absolument....

Cockroaches in the room! Lots of them everywhere! Bed and towels are not simply dirty. They have black color because of mud. Long black foreign hair on towels, in bathroom, in bed. Staff changed room after my request and we had 3-5 cockroaches in our bed per day instead of 10-20.

Stinks like cigarrette, management is very rude with customer and they change the price. I asked for one night and they charged me $33.00. After 3 hours the clerk was calling me to check out. I had to pay $20.00 more dollars to spend the night there. Service is very awfull.

Perfect for college students, travelers passing by and those simply wanting to get out of their house for peace/quite.You are located near the 10 freeway, so a mere buzzing sound is constant, but not overbearing. Room service will knock on your door everyday between 10am and 11am unless you tell the front desk you wish not to be disturbed. I say the service was poor because the internet connection was horrible; you literally have to 'find' that spot in the room. The television set had a few basic channels, ugh(two are porn), so be prepared to watch a lot of news or catch up on your sleep. If one of those two services was slightly improved, and still kept at 42 a night, I would certainly go back MORE often. But, hey! Beggars can't be choosers.

This hotel is inexpensive 42.00 per night- perfect for a person who wants peace and quiet and 2 adult movie stations! including playboy channel and free internet access This motel is always empty in the back side so it is very private! Their is no people walking back n forth nor up and down the stairs. I get nervous when there is lots of traffic and couples arguing doors slamming people partying next to you! Here you wont have to worry about it! There is a lot of '60 freeway' traffic noice, but if you can handle it youll have it made!
