I recently stayed 4 night at the Summerland Motel and found it to be much more than I expected.
The room I stayed in was in what seemed to be a newer building and everything was in great shape. Clean carpets, clean beds and linens, a nice bathroom and even a little deck overlooking a well kept greenspace.
There are a few reasons I'm not giving this place a 5 out of 5, but they are minor problems in reality:
1. I had to check in after the office closed. There 'vending machine' type system for getting a key after hours wasn't accepting the code I was given and ended up with me having to check into a different type of room than I had originally booked. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of if you're checking in late and the motel is near full occupancy. Had it been full I may not have gotten a room.
2. The toilet paper and facial tissues were the cheapest quality I've even encountered. And I'm a 29 year old man - not something that I would normally even notice. But this stuff was so cheap, it was like using that brown shipping paper - very rough and uncomfortable. If the owners are reading this: please invest the extra pennies into better toiletries.
3. The gym as nothing more than 4 basic machines in a small room. If you're booking based on the fact it has a gym, be prepared to be disappointed.
Otherwise this place was great. Right on the highway, clean and well taken care of. Would stay here again any time.
