A great value. Clean and well maintained at a great price. Also quiet, especially since it is on a busy road. We'll come back.

Older property but very clean and well run. Rooms are huge. Motel is conveniently located with easy access to the freeway yet the room windows are at the rear of the building, which faces a nice residential neighborhood, so you don't hear traffic. I always get a good night's sleep here.

Pleasant Surprise
Very clean. Was very surprised because of looks but was very nice room. Not a lot of amenities and tv channels are lacking but I wasn't there to watch tv and was gone most of the time anyway.
