Safer than neighboring cities which is why we stayed. No frills, Minimal breakfast. There is a coffee machine in the room so bring some tasty coffee and have a good cup in the morning. Just a stop by the road when we needed sleep before traveling on.

Stayed here one night and entered our room and it was extremely hot. Took hours for the room to cool while we and our dog were sweating it out for a while. The tv and fridge were nice. The toilet in our room did not flush easily. Everything in the room from bed spread and furniture seemed pretty dated. Woke...

The kindest staff. They really take care of their customers. The rooms are clean, safe, and an hour away from LA. A great place to come and get a taste of the Mojave wind... one of the most relaxing stays ever.

We had a very good experience here and are surprised to read some negative reviews. We turned up late in the evening (had phoned earlier to check availability) and were very pleased to find spotlessly clean room with fridge (new), microwave, effective air conditioning (a tad noisy but fine), comfy bed, clean sheets, towels etc ... all we needed and...

I'm travelling on a budget so I don't have high expectations from overnight stays but there are limits. Pretty much the only thing I care about is cleanliness. Everything else is a bonus. This motel doesn't deliver even bare necessities. The room was basically a dump. All of the provided towels had staines. When I asked for new ones they...

We stayed one night on our way to Vegas, before going trough the Death Valley national park. It was cheap, clean and quiet. Perfect for that one night stop. I would recommend not to expect much for breakfast, it was minimal but the rest was ok...

We arrived around midnight, it was freezing outside but the owner didn't let us in to the reception area to fill the check-in papers and to pay - we were pushed to stay outside for about 15 minutes in 19F (-7C). The room was very cold and all the furniture and fittings were old (some also broken). A/C was ridiculously...

Good little place. It was nice for such a small motel. We had a good night, not much noise, affordable prices. Even if there is not much things to do nearby, the inn is a good place to stay if you want to make a break on the road.

I should have paid more attention to the pictures and some of the other reviews - but I had stopped at the nr.1 ranking and the good price, and booked it. Oh what a surprise it was when we drove up to the property! By that time we were locked in, as cancellations are not possible with less than 24...

Very economical clean adequate and friendly reception. Well situated by the main strip lots of parking space, moderate sized rooms with good shower and clean bathroom. A/c slightly noise. Definitely recommended. Try the hotel 15mins walking distance for a bar meal.
