Arrived late, they were accommodating and gave me some polystyrene plates to heat up some micro pasta. It was $73 so cheap and cheerful. No where to walk to locally. There was a little supermarket close by but this was a drive.

Stayed for one night. Checked-in very late. Check-out and drive away quickly. Was charged for stolen towels but I've not even seen those in the room. Came back and talked to manager to clear the case out -- was named a thief. Those are just crazy. No way to stay there. There are completely better places around.

We booked a room for one night. Al the rooms have lamellae which do not hold the lights outside and Wagon wheel motel has lights at every room that is very bright. At 3 am I asked the owner of the place for a solution and he gave me a white towel and rubber bands. In the morning I asked...

This is a pleasant enough motel. Nothing special, but it is clean and good value for your money. It is quite close to Solvang the Danish town with windmills and lots Danish shops. A little mermaid and a big boot statues

Company charged my account when I did not stay there and will not refund my money. I have spoke with the Manager of Wagon Wheel and also a Expedia Representative. Management advised that the charge was correct and I have provided him with a cancellation number but he still will not return my money. RIP OFF

My family stayed there for 1 night (we took 3 rooms). The rooms were creepy, carpet and bedsheets had stains. The furnitures seemed very old and looked like they came from garage sales (and all 3 rooms had different combination of furnitures). And to put my comment into context, I am from a developing country and even some small 1...

This hotel has had bad publicity in the passed... However the new owners are making it work.. They are in the middle of renovating the property. I found it to be extremely clean...I would recommend staying here..... And I will be staying there next time I attend the Salinas Rodeo..

I cannot really comment on the rooms/hotel because I haven't stayed there, but I just felt like sharing my experience on TripAdvisor because I thought it was really creepy. I was doing a roadtrip with 2 friends (we are 3 young women) in Northern California. We at first wanted to stay in Monterey, but hadn't booked anything and when we...

This family run motel gives you more than what you pay for. It's old but the room I stayed in was clean and the customer service was great. Not sure if the ownership has changed since previous reviews but there are rooms going through renovations, so in the future the rooms may get major improvements. Basically if your looking for...
