The motel was by a freeway, which is very convenient. If you like it quiet, this isn't the place, The noise from the freeway was very noticeable on Friday night, not so much on Saturday night. The walls must not be soundproof, as the guests on Friday night were very audible and they had their TV on all night long....

This hotel is located right off highway 8. So you can't make it any easier for a quick crash pad. But realize you will have freeway noise if you don't wear earplugs. Still, this is a clean place to stay while passing through. If you're looking for more, keep driving. The king bed room was spacious and comfortable. But it...

Easy on-off to the highway to all area attractions. Rooms were large enough for a family of four for an extended stay. Very clean rooms. Pillows were a bit squishy for my liking. Our room also had refrigerator and microwave. The only negative was that our room was only a shower -- no bath tub. Amenities weren't in bottles but...
