A bit of DT noise but in a festive way. My only complaint: the shower drain was slow. Ew.

Walking distance of everything you need. If you seek a night life, this place is perfect. The ice machine on my floor was out of service, and the elevator is sketch.

What do you expect from a motor in?

Pros: cheap, close to where I needed to be and the breakfast wasn't terrible.
Cons: fix the wifi and the TV
The room had been renovated but there were a few places that you could see where they cut corners. Just not in any way that really affected your stay. You're right next to the airport so expect it to be noisy. The room was clean, the staff was helpful but the TV and internet were terrible. Their is a light breakfast provided with slightly stale breadstuffs ( just toast it) and fruit and watered down juice. Their are several reasonably priced restaurants close by and nicer ones within walking distance. If you're just there for a night or need a cheap place while traveling with kids, it's ok. I was on business so I just wanted a clean bed and a hot shower and I got that. Fix the TV and wifi and the place will be as good as you could expect from a motor lodge.

Charming

This is my second time staying at Pacific Motor Inn. Always a pleasure. Clean, friendly staff, and going to be remodeling. I look forward to the next visit. My only complaint is the breakfast can have more variety!

Was the last room downtown close to the Convention

Pros: Locationclose to the Convention Center
Cons: A little better cleaning Do not open the bathroom window.
Location: Numewrous things. I was there for work and a Conference Exhibition show.
I would recommend this room if nothing else existed! I was in town Wednesday June 22 for a conference show, very large, so rooms were a premium. This was the last room within walking distance. I reserved a king and got the king suite with king and double bed and roll away, separate living area and kitchen area. The room was fair, a no thrills room that needed updating and some gentle care to the carpets. The chairs and sofa were very 90s feel. The bathroom was updated with a whirlpool tub. The room overlooked a small pool and was at the top of the outside stairs for the second floor, so it was a little noisy at times. My room was ready when I arrived at noon and I was able to place my bags there. I latter found some of the windows were open and the one to the bathroom could have been used by someone to enter the room (BEWARE!). The breakfast was truly only a continental style, typical juices and coffee, packaged pastries, cereal, toast bagels and hard cooked eggs. It was so-so. I was able to stay in the room an extra hour after checkout so I could attend the exhibition and conferences before leaving on the next leg of my trip.

I've stayed here numerous times for business. There are tons of great places to eat and drink within a short walking distance. I've always felt safe here as a single, female business traveler. The hotel is budget but very clean & comfortable.

Not a comfortable experience

We stopped over for a night's rest prior to continuing our journey. AT around 2:00AM there was a huge argument in one of the neighboring rooms and we were woken up and couldn't go back to sleep again.

Cheap and central

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Free breakfast
A good place to sleep and sleep only. I had repeated issues with the key card magnetic strip. The breakfast was basically a room of packaged food. One of my nights of sleep was interrupted by someone knocking and trying to open my door in the middle of the night. But overall inexpensive and right downtown.
