Stayed in room 107. Everything worked. Clean sheets. Not dirty but very dusty. Comfortable bed. Dogs stay free. Free showtime/HBO. Swam in small pool. It was clean enough. I was moving from NH to LA and needed accommodations for two nights. It was clean and basic, no bugs in 107. Woman working was kind and made friendly conversation. Not a glamorous place, not a pit. I was comfortable and my dog and I had peace. I would recommend for people on a budget. Ate at Mexican place next door, it was good and the staff was friendly there as well.
I have no idea how this hotel has a 4 star rating on Trio Advisor?! The pros: great price - I paid $56 for a Saturday night stay in a King bed room. Also nonsmoking, staff was very friendly, & sheets appeared/smelled clean. Sadly it’s downhill from there. There was extensive unrepaired water damage in the bathroom. Very bad if you have allergies. The floors were filthy, the air conditioner was so loud we had to turn it off to hear the TV. I kept my flip flops on to walk around & to shower. Mystery substance on dresser. Unless I’m really in a pinch to save money I will stay there again.
