First of all, I called the motel because I wanted to make sure there was a room available. When the owner answered, it sounded like "seeress". I said, "...uh what?" He says "Seeress." I say, "uh. is this Cedar Rest?" He says, "Yes, how can help?" Trying to secure a spot at this motel was a nightmare because he barely spoke English. The motel is far from the 15 freeway, woven into the city. We arrived at the motel, and immediately noticed the weird people loitering in the parking lot. When we went to check in, the owner and his wife could barely speak English! I had so much trouble understanding them, and had to ask them to repeat themselves multiple times. They asked if we preferred upstairs or downstairs, and we said downstairs, which we received. We finally got our room key, and headed off.
We unlocked our door, and immediately noticed the walls looked like a jail cell. The door would only shut with extreme force and pressure!! The deadbolt on the damn thing was broken off, so we had to "Mickey Mouse" it to make it lock.
DO NOT TRY TO DO ANY WORK IN THIS MOTEL WHERE YOU NEED TO USE THE WIFI!
Yes, you get free wifi and that's awesome. It shows that the signal strength is 5/5 and 4/5 bars, but in reality it is actually 1/5. I couldn't get any of my work done because the WIFI was way too slow. The desk I needed to do my work on was raggedy and and sketchy. Not to mention, I couldn't plug my laptop charger or phone charger in because all of the plugs were taken by the things in the room, meaning no outlets for the guests' convenience.
The phone in the room looked like it could have been from 1997...plus it was filthy.
Sheets on your bed not scratchy enough? Try the ones at Cedar Rest, they're perfect for scratchyness!
As you are walking through your room, you can feel the heat radiating from the carpet from the electrical below. Freaked me out. You could also see the TV stand was about to cave in and fall over. The remote barely worked for the TV anyway...
I turned the Air Conditioning on and it sounded like the war against the Taliban....ALL NIGHT! It woke me, my husband, and infant daughter up all night! Also, the wire and plug to go into the socket was GINORMOUS and hard to miss. It was extremely low to the floor and my infant daughter tried to pull the plug out. Dangerous!
If you want peace and quiet at this motel, you won't get it. There are children screaming everywhere and banging on walls. There are people talking and yelling in the parking lot.
Of course, taking a piss is a huge issue in this bathroom because you get a damn tan from the lights used in the bathroom! Not only that, but the toilet HARDLY flushed! Want to take a shower at Cedar Rest? Get ready for a bath, because the drain DOESN'T DRAIN. It was up to my upper ankles by the time I got out of there! The positive about that shower is the pressure it has. That was good... If you want to dry off using a towel from Cedar Rest, look for black hairs on them first....because that's what I got on my towel.
The beds had two huge metal parts sticking out of them. They were in the walkway. My one year old daughter took a dive and bashed her nose directly into the sharp metal object. When I jumped up to her rescue, I bashed my ankle in the OTHER metal object!
Oh, and you know how it says "FREE BREAKFAST"?? They might as well advertise it as "FREE FRUIT LOOPS" because that's all you basically get.
