  • Couple

    We were just sleeping over on our way to San Francisco, room card gives you 20% discount at Denny's which is 50m away from the hotel

  • Couple

    It was great value for money. Somewhere to stop off if your on a road trip. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets close by.

    Dont stay here if your looking at seeing the city.

  • Family with children

    Convenienve near freeway and restaurants

  • Older travelers

    There was a motor cyclists circling the block from 10p tll about 130a and it was very difficult to sleep through it because he was purposely revving his engine. The front desk employee and security wouldn't do anything about it. They were more preoccupied with their cell phones/computer to care. Also, there were stains on the bed sheets and we had to calll maintenence because the toilet didnt flush. It was a terrible experience. The staff in general were rude as well.

  • Family with children

    I stay very often in cheap, old, run-down motels and never had any problems: at least they were clean. The hotel was filthy and infested with bed-bugs, the toilets clogged. Never again here.

  • Couple

    Best money ever spent on a hotel. Inexpensive, comfortable, and great location.

  • Couple

    Big and absolutely clean room with comfortable beds.. Great price/value ratio. Breakfast included.

    Big parking for trucks very near to the motel - there was a running truck's engine for the whole night:-( Ask for the room far away from the parking:-) Otherwise would definitely recommend.

  • Couple

    The room was excellent for the fairly low price. The breakfast is included and enough variety is offered. (Only sweets but you can even make your own waffle there) Free wireless internet access is included in the price.

  • Single

    The price of the room was very low for the area. It was definitely 'you get what you pay for' but if you're willing to deal with the cons, the pro (low price) is a good one. The proximity to the freeway was good and there were a decent selection of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

    The room was very basic. Small room, dated bathroom and bed/furniture, very loud climate control with limited adjustability. There was not much noise insulation and although the freeway noise really wasn't a problem, the meth-head who decided that the entire hotel needed to see how loud his base was at 2:00am was very bothersome. I'd stay there on my own but would never bring any member of my family there.

  • Older travelers

    Very good value. Not luxury but clean and convenient to highway. Efficient hotel staff. Not the most modern rooms but working ok and a good night's sleep. Room even had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Continental breakfast was better than most with waffle maker and fresh donuts.

    Sink stopper did not work, everything else fine.

  • Older travelers

    Ease of access and price

    Constant traffic in this area, so be prepared for noise.

  • Group of friends

    Primarily the fact that the hotel was so clean, excellent rate, and location was within walking distance of eateries made this hotel a very attractive choice for our group. Breakfast in the AM was good with excellent coffee. Large well-lit parking lot was a plus for walking at night to Denny's a few yards away. In-room refrigerator was a plus.

  • Group of friends

    Very clean. Simple accommodations for a great rate. Safe and pleasant location within walking distance of Denny's in same parking lot. Breakfast included and good enough that we didn't go to other outlets nearby. Easy to find with GPS and well-lit parking lot.

  • Couple

    Very nice and clean. Good location, close to highway but quite.

  • Couple

    the room was clean and completed with everythings. Good breakfast
