We were in the area and stayed two nights around Christmas at the Yermo Inn. It is more or less a motel but instead of having the drive-up to the door feature of a motel you do have a building atmosphere where you enter at various points. Surprisingly they did have a nice gym and a pool on site. Everyone was nice. The room did not have a blow dryer but they located one for us and were fine providing extra towels on request. The facilities were all clean. Make sure you try to get a room that does not face the highway.
