Gear Head Inn
Ranked #3 of 5 Whittier B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2010

We did not actually sleep in this hotel. One look in the rooms and we turned around and headed for another hotel. I am not sure who has been rating this hotel before (I think it is the owners and not actual customers). They told us it had been newly renovated and now had a old car and motorcycle theme. If you call putting a Harley-Davidson bedspread on a bed a renovation then... This place is run-down, smells of cat urine and mold, and the door and door handle are falling apart. My 13-yr-old could have kicked it in. Even if you are traveling on a budget, there are nicer hotels than this for the same price.
