“HORRIBLE! STAY AWAY!!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Worst motel I have ever stayed in! The carpet was so dirty we had to wear shoes because it turned our feet black. Ice machine was broken all 3 days there with a sign stating to "check back tomorrow"! It appeared that all the "guests" were long term residents. The room smelled of animal urine, and creepy people roamed the parking lot all hours of the night. STAY AWAY!!

Room Tip: Do not stay here if you want any comfort and peace, and are a decent clean person!

I booked this motel, then looked at TripAdvisor, and thought 'what have I done?'. I was truly amazed at the cleanliness of the rooms and the pool. Everything works great, including the guest's laundrette. Apparently they now have new owners with plans. Excellent value, highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are non-smoking. Great.

The bed, flooring was in bad condition. The bathroom didn't look to bad. It did not look like what I saw in the pictures at all. The first night we stayed we had a girl come to our front door and she had no clothes on but just a jacket on saying if someone could help her get her stuff from another room that her boyfriend or friend kicked her out. So from there on out, we keep seeing her walk the area and she was very intoxicated. They didn't clean the room the 2nd day we stay and no towels were replaced.The area had alot of people walking the streets. It look like people were selling drugs at this hotel. The only thing I like was that it was cheap and it was close to the beach. I will not stay here again. Oh yes, one more thing. The guy that works there is always walking around the hotel. I'm not sure why but I guess to keep people from do things, idk???

This was by far the most disgusting room I've ever seen. We were scared to take our shoes off. The shower was gross with dirty black footprints. The worst part of all... in the closet, we found a half full gatorade bottle of urine. Would have been safer sleeping in the truck.

An inexpensive hotel close to a Marine base - this hotel was a pleasure for my stay! Walking distance to Pendleton's front gate, excellent wifi, decent food in walking distance, and the price was right.

And the staff knows what it's about; no drunks,. no wild parties; this is a great place for families and spouses of Marines to stay as they visit.

And did I mention a short walk to the beach...!

I used to stay at this hotel 8 to 10 years ago and it was always clean and updated. It was never a Hilton but nice enough for a nights stay. Since then the owner has done nothing to keeping it up. The bed, flooring and bathroom was in bad condition. The man at the front desk was not friendly and offered no smile nor clue that he enjoyed his job. I won't go back

If you like ants in your room and staff rushing you out before check out time then this is the place for you. There are no used condoms under the bed so it could be worse but still not worth the money.
