Very good value for the price!

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Fridge, hairdryer, coffee maker in the room. Good tv channels and comfy bed. Lots of gas stations and restaurants nearby.
Cons: The carpet needs to be replaced. The wifi signal really needs to be stronger
Location: The hotel is right off the highway. About 7 minutes drive is a group of restaurants, including the Applebees I went to. Lots of places to eat close by
I drove from Ontario, Canada to Los Angeles, California, and this was my last hotel stay before going home. The clerk at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. He gave me info about good places to eat in the area. The room was mostly clean and was equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, fridge and hair dryer.I would say that the carpet needs an upgrade or a deep cleaning. There was one spot right by the bathroom where the carpet was shredded and the floor looked dirty. But everything else was clean. I always appreciate a room with the extras like a fridge and especially a coffee maker since I love a coffee as soon as I wake up. I need the fridge for the cream because I do not use that horrible coffee whitener (it's all GMO corn syrup along with other unsavory ingredients). The room was comfortable and there were plenty of things like toiletries, towels and pillows. The bed was comfortable and the tv channels were good (tv sleeper here!). The clerk gave me a room on the first floor as I requested to make things easier for me and the curtain on the window at the front of the room kept the light out. I was able to park right in front.What you get for a room is well worth the price paid.I only was a little put off by the carpet and the wifi didn't work well at all. I'm from Canada and need it, especially since on this trip my mobile carrier didn't get my roaming data working for several days at the beginning. It wouldn't even load my map home on my phone.

Bed like a rock

Bed was so hard it hurt our backs. Bathroom was so small you could barely get inside it. WIFI was only available between 6 am and 9 am, are you kidding?

Not the Best sleep but it got me through my trip

Posted Jun 21, 2017 on Hotels
didn't bother with the continental breakfast, as it wasn't my type of breakfast ....the room needed a deep cleaning, the dust under the dresser was thick with dust, there was a white substance spattered on the front of the night stand and what appeared to be a bullet hole from the other room into the back of the mirror ....mattress was not comfortable...but the staff were quite friendly

It was clean, but the mattress was uncomfortable and so we're the pillows. Good for an overnight stay.

Not worth the $15 we saved

Posted Jan 9, 2017 on Orbitz
The stairs to our room were blocked with caution tape, the heater was turned off (in January), and the iron/coffee maker had graffiti on them (and didn't function well). It was okay since we needed a place to stay before finishing a drive home, but I wouldn't recommend to a friend.

HORRIBLE

Posted Oct 1, 2016
Pros: NOTHING
Cons: It should just be torn down.
It was horrible from the start! When I arrived it took over 15 minutes for someone to come to the lobby. I stood there ringing the bell and finally called the motel. The phone didn't even ring. Someone finally came running from upstairs and I couldn't even understand what he was saying when he did try to help. I had a horrible feeling from the start and the entire facility was dirty and nasty. When I finally got my room key and went to my room I opened the door and instantly knew that they try to make it look like an okay place from the pictures they have online but it's not. IT IS DIRTY AND UNSANITARY. There were stains on every towel and one of my towels were yellow. The bathroom had mold all over the vent. The air conditioning unit in the wall was nasty and the wall around it had clear signs of being repaired poorly many times. The cord for the air conditioning unit was being held in with black electrical tape. The carpet was worn and the bed sheets and pillows also had stains. I was so grossed out and didn't want to be there at all. I was supposed to stay there 5 nights but I only stayed 1 night and checked out and went to an actual clean and wonderful hotel. When they asked me why I was leaving after 1 night I asked him if he wanted me to be honest and the man said "yes". I told him ALL of the above statements and his reply was, "well we're only an average hotel so we can't afford to keep up on all those things". They clearly don't care and it shows big time. STAY AWAY.

Inexpensive place to sleep close to my meeting.

Posted Sep 29, 2016
Pros: Refrigerator and microwave were provided. Staff provided Wi-Fi pass word without being asked and that worked well too.
Cons: Toilet seat was not real stable and needs an upgrade. Otherwise, everything was satisfactory
Location: It was chosen because of being close to my meeting place so location was important
It served it's purpose. It was clean and quiet and comfortable enough. I was in the room only for sleeping and clean up purposes was I did not intend to spend a lot of time there. It was adequate for my needs and the price was right. It was clean, bed comfortable, everything worked, shower and bath area were clean and worked well. Linens were clean and adequate. For the price, I was pleased. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
