I saw some reviews on expedia that this was a 3.5 motel. It's more like a 1. Just so basic and it was dirty - cob webs. The pillows were really old - the cases were too small so you could see how dirty they were. it was $76/night. I could understand it if the cost was a lot lower...

Last weekend my boyfriend and I stayed at the Costa Mesa location and the stay was great! First, it is close to everything...all the best places to eat and right off the freeway. We have stayed there before which is why we came back. Noticed that there are a few new faces, super friendly new guy named Chris. He's knowledgeable...

This is the worst motel stay. And also the worst customer service. I stayed there and went to pay for a extra night just because it was easier then moving, even though the room was full of cockroaches and other bugs. When i went to pay for one more night the front desk said i couldn't stay because i had...

Worst Motel my family and I have ever stayed in! No Kleenex, no shampoo, no lotion! Ice machine doesn't work! No refrigerator, no microwave. Front desk tried to kick us out because our names were not in the reservation! Makes no sense! Don't stay please.

Had stayed at this motel for 3 weeks before I suddenly ended up in the hospital so ended up not being able to stay my final night. Offered to move my stuff out of the room prior to leaving for the hospital as I was not sure if I was going to be admitted. Upon hospital admission had my family...

Not impressed with this motel. Got a room for a night due to being displaced for the night. Checked in prior to going to work to ensure I had a place to stay for the night. Upon getting back from work I decided to wash my uniform for work. The laundry facilities on-site were disappointing as one washer was broken...

The clientelle is extremely dodgy. Heard the police coming 3 times in a night, to 3 different rooms. Quite scary guests in this place. Avoid if you want to be safe. At the same time, the price is well above the average motel 6.

Stayed for two nights and wasn't thrilled. The highlight was the updated sink. The bed and pillow were comfortable. Everything else was basic. No extra amenities. They had a laundry room on sight. Close to freeways, gas stations and restaurants. Bed was made but sheets weren't changed. Tub also had a hole in it.
