You cant get there from here

Terrible access to motel. Not enought parking spaces, had to park on street, no cameras on street directly in front of entrance. Parking spaces they do have are very small and no exit once you pull into underground parking. You must back out to the street again. Photos must be 5-10 years old. Reported smell of skunk order on 4th floor. Leak from under toilet, under floor. Phone did not work. All reported, nothing repaired or even inspected... Breakfast is normal "breakfast included". No, i would not stay nor recomend unless you have no other choice.

Great staff

Staff and hotel room was great. Parking spaces on second level were not big enough for our small car (Toyota Corolla), had a hard time finding a space where either the cars on either side of us or we could get in or out of the car. Very tight. Room and staff were wonderful, we didn't check out the first level parking, it could have been better.

Great location 10-20 minutes to most things

Great location, easy on/off the 15. Close to everything, but out of the way of most of the tourist areas so pricing is better. Save it for the fun stuff! Clean, renovated rooms.

Stay here!

Wonderful staff, covered parking, the room was beautiful and very comfortable/clean. There was a nice warm breakfast and they allowed us to check in when we arrived early. I also love that it was dog friendly!

Pros: There were back and front street entrances. Free breakfast, refrigerator and coffee maker.
Location: Not far from Old Town. In and Out Burger right behind the hotel, with a back street driveway entrance to the hotel.
The room was very comfortable and there were convenient amenities. The sink drain was closed and could not be opened until someone came to fix it. I used the jacuzzi and it was dirty and cold and lots of bubbles. It needed cleaning.

Definitely not La Quinta Quality!

Hotel was obviously an older one that had a fresh coat of pain & an attempt at updating the flooring. Staff was courteous & the breakfast was good. Very poor parking situation. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for the price.

Awesome Breakfast

I paid for a King room but didn't get it was put in a double room but it worked out ok. Little crowded for two adults! The staff are the best and the room was very clean. The breakfast was really nice staff kept it stocked the whole time lots of people were enjoying it. Close to everything thought there would be lots of traffic noise but there wasn't any noise out of the ordinary. Nice place would go back again.

Great, super nice staff!!!

the staff were fantastic!! Super courteous  and friendly!!  The free breakfast was way better than expected and there was always plenty. It's located in an awkward site and really almost on top of freeway.  It's very charming in its updated decorations and beds comfortable.  The only issue was a few cockroaches (although they were crawling to their death) in our room.

Pretty Enjoyable Stay

My family and I stayed there over the weekend and I have to say it was pretty comfortable. The only downside was the room was a little stuffy, but it was overall a good time. The breakfast was pretty good - enough to satisfy my family of 5. Overall, the staff and the hotel provided good service and I

Very nice room for the price - GREAT continental breakfast!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Got a nice room right across from the gym/laundry rooms on the first floor - very easy access to everything. There is an In -N- Out within walking distance (120 yds) if you want a late night snack, and the continental breakfast is phenomenal. The staff if very friendly and helpful. Plenty of covered parking.. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
