Stayed one night, room clean but basic but more clean towels than many other stop overs. Motel was a location of the movie Bug which one of the stars was Ashley Judd but no promotion of this mentioned - if you google film trailer you will see the motel - but no bugs in our room! No evening facilities but... More

If the place was half the price I would still consider it massively overpriced. Pros: location (between Death Valley and Sierra Nevada), 24/7 reception area with hot drinks, microwave, etc. Cons: practically no WiFi (strange, you have a router in your room, but it doesn't connect with the outer world), rooms very run down Place is moody and nostalgic, but...

We stayed here in July on our way to San Diego. This is okay for a one night stay. If you are looking to stay longer or require better amenities (t.v., internet, ice) go up the road 14 miles to Independence. Tons of hotels there. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small. Bring food. The gas station sells sandwiches... More

The owners are kind but the rooms are tiny, really old and poorly maintained. The beds are old and terrible, cleanliness is questinable. We found many hair in the bathroom and bed, the floor gave us dark feet... My wife got some strange skin irritations, possibly bug bites? Yet this motel is in a good spot on the way to... More

The hotel is a bit run down, but it was featured in a movie called "Bug" with Harry Connick jr and Ashley Judd. They actually made 2 rooms into one for the movie, but if you want to see what it is like the exterior is exactly the same as the movie. Overall it was an ok motel and it... More

While the service is excellent, I can't say the same about upkeep of the motel. Rooms are very clean and tidy, and I was thrilled to see no bugs in or around my room. However, beds seem old and over-used, Bedding had some holes in it, and the bathrooms and appliances NEED updating. WiFi was spotty and the tv barely... More

My two kids and I, and our three dogs, stayed the night at the Rustic on 03-21-14. It was no problem that we did not get in until 11:30 pm. Our room was small, but clean and big enough.

The landlady said they'd taken over management the previous Monday. Friendly. Clean room. The swamp cooler wasn't blowing so the room was uncomfortably hot. I'd have left the window open but without a screen anybody could have reached in and unlocked and unchained the door (call me a paranoid single female traveler if you must). The TV had two channels.... More
