This is a single level budget accommodation MOTEL, essentially Motel 6 with dark furniture. It was not what I was expecting based on the published photos, but value was okay. Bathroom was somewhat updated, but we had problems with a slow drain in the shower (so that after a few minutes with the water turned on, you're submerged in ankle...

Love this hotel. I have leading a bike tour here every year for the past 10 years and I plan to keep coming back. All the other hotels in the area are too expensive. This one is very nice, the price is right and the manager, Bobby, is great. It's great that they now have free breakfast. They remodeled over...

We spend several nights a week at a minimum, in hotels. This was a very nice stay. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful and even called three different Chinese restaurants to see who would deliver for us. The property itself is very clean and kind of quaint feeling. And rooms are decent size with updated bathroom faucets...

We've stayed at this hotel twice, the first time we were in an upstairs room, this time on the main floor. Very nice upgrades to both rooms-modern glass sinks, down comforters. Very quiet considering the hotel is right off the freeway. There is a slight mildew smell to the rooms, could be the AC unit. Breakfast provided, simple but good....

We fired up the Harley and headed south from Fort Bragg CA along Hwy 1 taking our time visiting lighthouses, a Russian fort and other points of interest along the way. Out of Bodega Bay we head east toward Hwy 101 and called it a day here. I was impressed it is a quaint old style hotel very clean, conformable,...

We found our room very clean and quiet. The bed was wonderful. When we checked in, the man at the front desk was rude but warmed up after several minutes. The next morning, he was very nice. I would stay again.

Just driving thru and found the cheapest place. I was surprised how clean and quite it was. Nice place to stay. Easy check in and out. Didn't go to pool. If you stay in a one room with king bed the 4th pillow is in the closet. It had wifi, fridge and microwave too.

I stayed here with my husband for a weekend of San Francisco tourist fun, and wine tasting in Napa Valley. We had to find a way to do the trip on a budget, since both SF and Napa have pretty high price tags for most activities and hotels. We absolutely loved it!!
