The staff here was great Fernando checked us in and made us feel right at home. The stop was convenient especially when your eyes feel heavy and your falling asleep on the long stretch after the grapevine. The rooms were newly renovated and the price was great. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We got placed in a room closest to the freeway and I still did not hear a beep. P.S. I am a light s...

Rooms were newly renovated and clean the staff was great. Fernando checked us in with excellent hospitality, I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. It gets semi-busy on weekends so making a reservation is a plus.

We were surprised. We came in as a family, expected a typical $39 hotel, but were awesomely surprised.

I think the rooms are newly renovated and was given away for a very low price to gather good reviews here again.
Because I saw by the door the original price list, and it's over $150 per night (supposedly). But I guess business is slow these days? that's why they let rooms go for $39? Maybe.

But whatever the case, the floors were made from new vinyl tiles. Bathroom got new tiles too. Clean.

Bed: king size, clean.

Only complaints. TV is very old. Toilet is small, low and outdated. And wifi is very slow.

But I had a good sleep.

I'd say this room is probably worth $100 per night.

Would I stay here again if they increased the price? If it's below $70 then yes, I'd stay here again :)


Adendum: Breakfast is from 4am to 9am. Never ate it since we woke up late, but I thought it's worth mentioning.

Room Tip: Not sure if all the rooms are newly renovated like the one we had, but we stayed ath second floor. V...

The staff was great but the hotel has seen better days! The room was spacious and clean but old and well worn. Carpet was dirty, shower was not working right, phone didn't work all the time we were there. We had an issue with all the construction workers in the evening, sitting and standing outside drinking beer and throwing their soda and beer cans on the pavement. It didn't seem to be in a safe neighborhood either. I would not stay there again.

It was ok for a quick one night stay on our way to san francisco from vegas. We were unfortunate enough to have a big group of men turn up and play music til early hours of the morning in the carpark. The area isnt safe which is something we discovered afterwards. Rooms were clean and value for the money spent. Hotel staff were friendly. Close to fast food outlets.
