I'm glad I was working a lot when I stayed here, as the motel was basic. I had to ask for extra toilet roll twice. Did not get a very warm welcome. If your looking for somewhere cheap and not bothered about comforts. Stay here.

This was sold to us as a 3 star property by Hotels.com. I wouldn't even give it 1 star... The front desk clerk sits behind a solid glass wall reserved more for a bank or convenience store in a bad area. The room was dirty and in very poor condition. Out in front of our room were abandoned cars and... More

First off, the is NO breakfast. Second, the sliding doors both had frigid artic air drafting through, room temperature when we entered felt like 40°F. The heater did counter the cold, eventually. Draft was enough to keep the heater blowing full blast, all night, with the fan in "AUTO".

We came to this property not knowing what to expect. We came off the Amtrak in Anaheim, hopped a OCTA bus for about 5 minutes and were here. Much to my delight, there was a laundromat around the corner. Much to my honey's delight there was a taqueria. The rooms are not super clean. But clean enough. The staff is... More

“There are no good rooms here. They're very mediocre. But the bottom line is that if the people aren't respectful of basic procedures and they don't follow protocol, why give them your business?”
