Looking for a hotel that is cheap, clean, safe and animal FRIENDLY, isn't always easy. Especially when I'm tired and having driven all day that's what I am today. Crown Motel is all of the above. No questions about my service dog 'Chilly' no extra charges and maybe the nicest room I've ever found in the ISA for $40+tax $4....

We thank you for your comments, however we have many, many comments about our hotel and how friendly we are. It is true we are family owned, All of our room locks work, it is not a matter of blame, you were only given a reason why the key might not have worked, it can be demagnetized by your cell...

This is an older motel, but well run. Everything is clean and the managers are very helpful. We have stayed here twice now and find it a very suitable budget motel. We splurged and had the upgraded king bed room for $50. Better than Motel 6 for the same $. I would give it 3.5 stars if possible.

Everything one would need for $50/night. TV, WiFi, Microwave, Fridge, Air-con, Coffee Maker, comfortable bed, ice machine, self-serve laundry, good selection of snacks for breakfast, good area, friendly owners, pool, "family-type" guests...what more could one ask for? Many Fast food choices within 3 minutes walk. Von's 4 blocks North. I liked the sink and massive counter outside of the bathroom....

I checked-in for three nights while looking for an apartment in El Centro. The motel was clean, had a refrigerator, microwave, and the management, especially Patrick, was friendly and very helpful. I would come back again. The wifi was ready to go without hassle.
