“Do not trust them”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2010

They are a AAA motel but they DO NOT stick to the prices in the travel guide. They padded on $30.00 and we were traveling off season. They are unprofessional and rude. Do not stay here.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2010

Gold star in was ok for price. The owners were extremely nice regarding allowing us to check in early. The rooms for the most part were clean except for the hair covered blankets. The towels were very skimmpy. One more thing the ice machine was crap. If you wanted ice good luck the only chance that you were going ot get was at the gas station.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2006

The Gold Star was recommended by AAA. It was clean and friendly and quiet. However, no food except stale donuts in the AM. The towels were threadbare. It is located close to some restaurants and the freeway but not close to downtown.

  • Liked — quiet and good price for the area
  • Disliked — threadbare towels and no breakfast food
  • Tips/Secrets — not bad for the price
