If you read this and still decide to stay there it becomes your fault. The people were helpful at the desk but the room was dirty.
There was black mold in the bathroom shower so we chose not to take a shower there. There was dirt and paper in the corners of the bathrooms including hair.
YUK! Not a good place to stay. Try something a bit more upscale so you can be happy.

I stayed at this place a little over three years ago, being that I am on disability and disabled I had to result to a 2 Star Hotel! Well, a few years ago I found the place to be a delight, very clean and very good customer service. unfortunately, that has changed over the years. My room was SOILED! The carpet, bedcover and curtains were sour! And to top it off my lock had to be jimmied in order to work! And to make matters worse the customer service were atrocious! I'm a stickler for: You get what you pay for, However, this place should be closed down for health reasons, if for nothing else!!!!!

Worst Place ever!!! Hotel Room Doesn’t have It’s own microwave like it says online. You have to go downstairs out to the parking lot to use the hotels microwave. You ask for a non-smoking room and you get a smoking room. Ac doesn’t work. The tables and the bathroom sink were dirty and not wiped down. The sink and re shower tub is clogged up and smells really bad. My boyfriend found porn magazines in one of the dresser. Ashes left over from cigarettes from last customers were let on the floor and tables. Rooms don’t have a ironing board o iron clothes no ice machines. Very poor customer service. When asked for extra towels, the lady said she didn’t have extras to give me because she only had enough for her service? Wth does that mean??? Oh one last thing! There’s an elevator but you can’t use it! Its only for their services ,and it’s a three story building! Good luck with your luggage!

The management is horrible. They will not listen to you. They spit policy talk at you. I was charged for 7 nights but they're giving me only 6 nights and 7 days. I would NOT hear me out.

I have stayed here previously as well and they WILL rip you off!! They advertise prices they won't stand by. If you have someone helping you with your bags or have someone else paying for your room for you, they will charge for that extra person! Even if they are only helping you with luggage or paying for your stay!

I stayed here 2 weeks ago but in a different room and the other guests were asking me if I had a bug/mosquito problem because they were getting bit up. I wished I listened to them but I guess I wouldn't experience it because I hadn't experienced it before. They do have bed bugs and they are highly contagious!! I'm worried about leaving here and taking them with me =(

Do yourself (and your family) a favor and save your money and health: DO NOT STAY HERE.

Yes, it is not a review of the motel in Winnetka, but of a motel of the same name in Alhambra, on Alhambra Blvd. However, it appears both motels are of similar poor quality...

The most unbelievably noisy motel ever imagined, with doors banging, feet clumping loudly around, voices calling from room across to room and from the upstairs balcony down to the parking lot below until as late as 4AM on weekends and 2AM on weeknights. Even adorable little children running freely around screaming into the wee hours of the morning. The best part? The source of the noise was the staff who live on site! And when I asked politely if the children could please be restricted from running and screaming past my door at night, I was tongue-lashed by a staff member for complaining. I traveled cross-country for a month staying at cheap-cheap motels, and nowhere did I encounter one as awful as this. The room is clean enough, the management friendly enough, but stay here only if you never wish to sleep.

Room Tip: Noisy staff lives upstairs. You're better with a downstairs room and the noise of cars entering...

Don't go here, sleep in your car...before staying here.
