“Don't go barefoot”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

Probably the dirtiest carpet in any motel in a long long time. Actually threw away my socks. A very lonely place with junker cars and few customers. "Families" obviously living there. I was stuck an extra day getting vehicle fixed. Office is always locked and must be buzzed in even in middle of day. Poor English spoken or understood. Met some great people in the area and at the restaurants, but stay away from this place.

Reviewed 17 February 2013

We stayed at the Travelodge during a weekend of winter birdwatching at some of the wildlife refuges nearby (Merced Natl Wildlife Refuge etc.) .

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the room, especially for this price. Comfortable (not too soft) beds; quiet room; clean bathroom with strong, hot shower; working heat (which we needed in February!) plus amenities such as a hair dryer, coffee maker, microwave, wifi.

The staff was responsive. The front desk clerk came to our room to help when I couldn't find the switch for the heat. The next morning, we needed to leave before the official breakfast time of 7 am, and she opened up early to put out food for us.

The one downside is the "breakfast" is pretty poor, even as motel breakfasts go. There was coffee, bottles of artificial orange drink, granola bars, small packaged muffins that did not look particularly good, and fruit. All put out on a shelf in the small reception area; no tables.

On the other hand, there is a diner called Eddie's right across the parking lot. It wasn't open early enough for us, but we found a Black Bear diner about 1/2 mile away that was terrific -- huge menu, huge portions etc.

All told, it's a great value for the price, which during our stay was about $65. I would stay there again.

Thank you for your review! It is always nice to see when our hard work has paid off. We also plan on starting a bigger and better breakfast selection later this year to better serve our guests without raising our rates! Again thank you and we look forward to hosting you again.

This hotel had everything we could ask for. The rooms very clean, updated, and big. The price was worth the stay. The manager was very nice and gave us directions to Fresno. The hotel is not right on the street, but that was a good thing. The street noise was not a disturbance. There was a great restaurant in walking distance of the hotel. We will be back when we stop in Los Banos again!

Motel was extremely clean. The staff there are incredibly friendly & helpful. The motel seems to be recently opened and recently remodeled. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone needing a place to stay.
