More like section 8 housing than a motel

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: All motels on the northern end of Cherokee Lane have the benefit of being in close proximity of downtown Lodi.
Cons: CUSTOMER SERVICE....When we finally did complain it was NOT well received
Location: Good and bad location. Good=close to downtown Lodi. Bad=Close to downtown Lodi
Terrible doesn't come close to describing the condition, customer service and cleanliness, or lack thereof, at this, not so low cost motel. The title "You get what you pay for" is not relevant to this particular motel. The prices are about the same on average as other nearby motels. This motel shouldn't not be so pricey The managers of this establishment openly admit they've been close with the owner since childhood, therefore run the motel as they please with little to no regard for the patrons. Now, I wont just complain without any backing. The following are just a few of the items making this the worst hotel in the area. Toilet plugged daily.....which we had to fix ourselves. (Replaced with A "NEW" toilet, which was also broken and only ran for one day). Notified management of a light fixture that had a problem with wiring. This was finally fixed on the day before we were scheduled to check out. Mind you this was a lengthily stay of over a 30 day period. Now lets talk housekeeping....WOW!! Don't bother with the usual sign you can hang on the door stating "DO NOT DISTURB". This sign means nothing here. If we left the door open just a few inches, here came the housekeeper. Entering the room while we lay there sleeping in bed. If the door was closed with the sign in place we heard relentless knocking and yelling out "HOUSEKEEPING, HOUSEKEEPING, HOUSEKEEPING, OPEN THE DOOR PLEASE". Makes you feel like its a raid, only in place of police with guns, its maids with mops

worst hotel ever

Posted Jun 7, 2015 on Hotels
There really aren't enough words to describe this hotel I can take a hotel being old and run down but not kept up the curtains are not hung up on the rod the bathroom is absolutely disgusting paint peeling off the walls cigarette burns in the blankets the bedspread is dirty thank goodness we always travel with our own sheets everything is just gross and the room smells like urine. I would never recommend this hotel to anybody we asked for an extra bath towel and was told they don't have any to give out we were never given the password for the wifi just horrible horrible thing and it seems a lot of homeless people park their bikes with all the trash in it in her room which is extremely disgusting so no wonder our room stinks

Normal. Hotel antigo, mas com quarto amplo e confortavel. Banheiro precisa melhorar e as toalhas sao minusculas.

Ugly, stinky stay

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Cons: Tear it down
Worst motel we have ever stayed at!! Lamps, refrigerator and microwave not even plugged in. When asked about this, I was told that's what owner wants to save $$. Many children living there, maybe rooms rented to low income families or those on assistance?? Kids Making noise, riding scooters and bikes all around rooms til late in evening. DONT STAY THERE FOR ANY REASON!! Could not get enough hot water to take a shower, shower very ugly, broken tiles & literally 4foot by 4foot inside...whole room smelled so heavily of antiseptic we had to keep bathroom door closed so we could stand rest of room.

Good location

Posted Sep 22, 2014
My stay at El Rancho was nice. Even though it was right next to the hwy 99 exit ramp. My room was very quiet. However, everything is outdated and somewhat resembles the construction of a jail. It was within a five minute drive from where I was visiting and the rates are reasonable.

We were disappointed that our room was right next door to a family of 5 LIVING at the ElRancho, they had 2 overflowing garbage baskets outside there door leaking across the walkway, filthy overflowing ashtray, and they were using the railing as their close line. There was a couple sleeping in their truck in the parking lot, so my husband and I took turns checking on our vehicle every hour, we were exhausted and disappointed. The facility was pretty, rooms clean, did not care for the guests next door.
