It all begins with a rude staff. The staff here are not trained in customer service at all. Expect less than average service in all forms (sanitary included). This is more of a transient rest stop for people living in motels as a lifestyle rather than people on vacation or business trips. Apparently, them dealing with the undesirables they rent... More

Let me start off by saying this motel is very clean and is equivalent to the famous Howard Johnson motels. This vintage motel is a flashback of my visits to the Howard Johnson motels back in the 60s. This kitchenette suite was rented for me while I was visiting my family in Tustin, CA. The towels were fluffed upon request,... More

This was the worst place I have ever stayed at. It looked OK from the outside, but what a nightmare. No ice, TV did not work, dirty, bugs, faulty lighting, no maid service, craby Mgr. I know this is curt, but I don't want to spend a lot of time on this terrible place. You have been warned!

The room was clean when we checked in but the pests are a deal breaker: 4 inch long cockroaches that fly when you try to swat them! You kill one, then there's 2 more coming at you! They even climb on the bed, found one crawling towards me. Some people call these waterbugs. Watch out they're in the bathroom as... More

The rooms are nice, very old motel has some charm. But it is infested by huge flying cockroaches that come out at night. I talked to other guests and they seem prevalent all year round in every room. You can see them as you enter the building at night, crawling around the entrance. We also had ants crawling inside our... More
