Let me start off by saying that we did not spend the night at this place, so had we stayed, perhaps I would have had a more positive opinion. As is, my opinion is pretty low of the place.
Here is our experience:
We had booked one of the 2-BR mobile homes on the property. My vision of the mobile home was a single home, on a beautiful piece of land, with lots of space around it. That’s completely off. This is a row of mobile homes; some appear to be people’s permanent homes, some rentals, all packed in like sardines. There is no ‘land’ around to explore. The whole property is right next to interstate 5, so it is very loud. The mobile homes are not in an inviting spot (the cabins are different).
Anyway, we checked in, got the keys to our unit, and found it, only to discover that it had not been cleaned. It was really gross inside (including the bathroom being dirty!). It seemed like a spacious unit, but who wants to walk into a dirty place.
We came back to the front desk, and the only other unit that was available and could possibly fit our family was another mobile home in the back. At first we decided to take it, but then upon further examination, we realized it was just too small for us. It was really set up for 3 people (3 plates, 3 pillows, a queen bed and a pull out) and there was four of us. So we decided to not take the unit and the owner easily refunded our money. There was no issue there. I do have to say that she was very friendly throughout the whole process.
But, just to let others know, let me tell you about the 2nd mobile home – it was, IMHO, not a nice place to stay. Some may like it, but we certainly did not. It’s very old, and not kept up at all. The floors are peeling, the pots are scratched and in bad shape, the bathroom has permanent stains, the windows are dirty, you get the idea. If you are used to staying in regular hotels like Best Westerns or Super 8s, and have some expectation of upkeep, this place is not for you. At least not the mobile homes. Maybe the cabins are in better shape. The pool and the grassy area looked inviting, but that’s by the cabins (and not all the cabins by the way, just some of them). So be sure to inquire about the location of the cabins.
This is not a place I would recommend.
