We stayed at the Blue Jay this past weekend. Be forewarned that there are two parts to this hotel, the “front” and the “back”. We were assigned to the “back” part of the hotel on Manzanita Road. If the front part of the hotel looked beat up, the back part of the hotel was just plain scary. The walk ways were beat up, the road was dug up in some places and it was even hard to figure out where to park?!?
When we arrived to our room, it looked like it was in the middle of being remodeled. The window framings were visible??? The bed was fine, looked clean, but the other furniture was old and beat up. The bathroom was very dated, but at least it was clean.
They do provide a “breakfast” that consisted of coffee, juice, milk, cereal, fruits and some donuts. It all runs out fast and I don’t think they restock; when it’s gone, it’s gone….
I will say that for the price we paid, it was OK. Me and my wife just needed a place to sleep, not staying in the hotel for any long periods of time. If you’re a budget traveler (I am) and used to these types of hotels, then it’s fine. But if you’re the 4 star and up type traveler, stay away!
