Staff Doesn’t Answer Phone and Keeps Lost Items

We were VERY disappointed with this hotel in many ways. We picked it because of the overall good rating on Travelocity but when we arrived, there were flies buzzing around the coffee pots in the waiting room 2- our room was a non-smoking room but had clearly been smoked in 3-The bathroom floor was horribly dirty and clearly hadn’t been mopped 4-they never replaced towels 5-Pool area was VERY slippery and though the shallow end was clearly marked 3 feet, my 6 year old son who is 48” tall couldn’t hardly touch the bottom. The final straw was that we accidentally left a personal item behind in the room when we checked out and didn’t realize this until we arrived home from our 10 hour drive later that day. We left straight from the hotel and drove home with no stops in between where luggage could have been left. When we called THAT NIGHT that we checked out, we were told that no one had located our bag and to call back tomorrow. When we called the next day, I called about 5 times before I got through on the line and was again told that they didn’t have our bag and to “call back later when housekeeping staff gets in.” I called back an hour later and it again took me LITERALLY 20 more unanswered calls over a period of 5-6 hours to get through to a live employee who AGAIN told me they didn’t have our bag and was asked to call back later. I said no and the workers final response was “A lot of items are left behind and the housekeepers don’t know what to do with it.” WHAT?!?!?!?

No hot water at 7am to take a shower. When I notified front desk they had no excuse which tells me this occurs often. Mattress had pee stains. Weird people hanging out in the parking lot.

Room was exactly as described & pictured. Room appeared very small when I first walked in but it was setup so it never felt small once settled. Room was very comfortable & had a spacious bathroom. I definitely plan to go back.

We were warmly welcomed by staff and given a welcome package that included wine, water and snacks. Nice touch! I never expected it from a budget hotel. Will stay again.

Very close to Knott's Berry Farm

Pros: It was clean, inside.
Cons: The T.V. in the room had USB ports (I wanted to watch Netflix on my laptop) and the WiFi was OK, but the ports for USB connection were inaccessible.
Location: Knott's, a variety of family friendly restaurants
This is a rather sleazy feeling hotel kept afloat by its proximity to Knott's Berry Farm. I initially booked the room so my girl and I could stay after going to the park for the day. She got sick the Thursday before our Saturday reservation. I went to cancel the room and re-book for another weekend, but no refund was offered (1st strike) it was still a firm 48 hours ahead of check-in. So we went to stay anyway. We got there to find that we could only get one parking space, we drove separately, and yes, the room was booked for 2 people. The room was very clean. Small, dark, and LOUD (I could hear people yelling most of the night), but, it was clean. The room we got was not "as pictured", smaller and with less table/counter space. Upon entering the room for the first time, I was greeted by a form letter with my name stamped on the top. There was a welcome basket with some snack-size bags of Cheetos and a VERY CHEAP bottle of wine. I'd have preferred they just take the money off the room fee. Next, I flopped on the bed, rock hard. You need to go to the front desk to ask them to turn on the ice machine. Outside there was a pile of discarded utility type items, a dented trash can, hoses, paint cans, but no service people. It was like someone emptied out the janitor's closet onto the sidewalk and parking lot.

Bed Bug Infested

Cons: Fumigate the rooms.
Location: The location is close to Knotts Berry Farm and Buena Park mall
When we entered the room, it was clear that the hotel was in the process of renovations with a newer looking lobby and workers all around the place, but the work is being done by amateurs. There are clear crude patch jobs, dirty carpets and worse of all, an infestation of bed bugs. We found after being awakened by itchiness, a severe bed bug infestation and these little mites crawling on our pillows. We captured a couple of them and brought them up to the front desk to complain....on deaf ears. There was no offer to switch rooms or to issue a refund and we were only told that we could speak to a manager who would arrive to work in the morning (several hours later). We ended up leaving in the middle of the night with our itchy bites hoping the bugs didn't crawl into our luggage. We left our phone number with the front desk for the manager to call us, but it has been a week and that call never arrived.

Do not stay at the "Worst Host Inn"!

Pros: AC and TV worked.
Cons: The cleanliness, staff, basically everything needs improvement.
I stayed here for one night not expecting too much, just wanted to sleep in a clean, comfortable place. This motel was anything but comfortable or clean. When I entered the room the carpet and some of the furniture looked old and the carpet was torn in some spots but I was too tired to go and complain about my room. Overall, it felt like it was just a cheap motel and unfortunately I wouldn't be able to get a refund at this point, so I decided to just shower and get some sleep. I got up early for work and started getting ready in the bathroom, when I returned to the bedroom I found a huge cockroach on the side of the bed. I was completely horrified, I quickly packed all my things and basically ran out of there. I did not want to even stay for their free breakfast and possibly risk my health even further. I will never come back to this cheap roach motel!
