OK hotel. A little tired.

Pros: price
Cons: expand the breakfast offerings
Location: fast food immediately across the street, sizzler right next door.
Near the freeway and near several fast food places and a sizzler. It's a budget hotel and an older facility. Most likely it was a nice place 20 years ago based on it's layout, and the pool, and the remaining landscaping. Today it's what you get if you want more than Motel Six but aren't willing to spring for the higher priced newer places. It had a free breakfast that were very minimal. Coffee, orange juice, several types of bread for toast and hot oatmeal, and apples. That was pretty much it. No bagels, no sweet rolls, no muffins, no apple juice, no waffles. The room was fine, again typical of these older motel/hotels. Fortunately there were no funny smells and the room was reasonable size.

Smelly room, locked sliding door out to veranda

Pros: It was cheap but you pay for it!
Cons: cleanliness, atmosphere, working sliding door which was dangerous and attitude of the staff
Location: Near a sizzler and about 5 fast food restaurants, no park nearby and coming right off the free, alot of traffic
The whole wing of the area where my room was located smelled of dirty wet shampooed carpeting. You could literally "taste" the smell of nasty water 1 minute after you walked into the room. There was a sliding glass door leading out to a small terrace and the pool but it didn't function or it was locked with a key. the door didn't budge, which was even worse because that was the only ventilation from a window in the room. Smelly deathtrap! I tried to retrieve my key at 12 and the courtesy person at the desk seemed quite rude in telling me that check-in was at three and that i could not have possession of the key until that time. Overall staying experience was rather awful and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. I hope this on hotel isn't representative of the franchise.

easy to find and great price

Cons: water (hot/ cold) fountain needed !!
nice town and great location. The only comment I have is there is no outlet to plug in where the coffee maker is. I had to take it into the bathroom..... and make my coffee while kids are taking showers.

Cheap hotel...you get what you pay for.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Increase room rates so you can put money back into the hotel to clean it up.
Location: Not in the greatest side of town.
Yes the hotel is cheap cost wise but you get what you pay for. Very run down and not a safe looking if you know what I mean. I would not stay there again. I paid $50 to save money but it was not worth it, very run down.

Just needed a room....

I had an event to attend mid-day and needed a room where I could freshen up before attending as I had been on the road for around 5 hours. The staff made sure I got a room well before check-in time (I had notified them when booking of my need for an early check-in) with no extra waiting. Although it is an older property and could use some remodeling, the room was fresh and clean and met all my expectations. The hotel is easily accessed from the freeway but does not have any of the 'freeway noise'. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling and needing a place to stay.

Hotel was close to freeway. Easy on and off

Nice and helpful staff. My light would not work, staff showed up in less than five minutes to fix the problem. Older hotel, but clean.

good price, comfortable, but...

Pros: room was clean, breakfast was good.
Cons: doors that keep outside noise out.
Great for a short stay! Only draw back is that it is next to HWY 99, so you will hear the freeway traffic at night (when the ac/heater unit) is not blowing. So if you're a deeper sleeper, no problem. But a light sleeper, like I am, you may want to consider.

Staff responded quickly to fix broken items.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, nice pool
Great location, above average breakfast, pleasant and friendly staff. Facility getting tired - needs cosmetic upgrade. Great value for the dollar if you don't require the latest in decoration and materials.
