This is your basic place, not fancy, but includes what matters most--clean, quiet, a comfortable bed, inexpensive, and with helpful and friendly owners. I stay here when I'm birdwatching in the winter months when the temperatures can dip below freezing at night. The heat is efficient and unlike a lot of in-room motel heaters, it's not superloud. The location near...

Professional, honest, clean, friendly, earnest. This place is reminiscent of the good old-fashioned, family-run motel we would stay at during family road-trips. The owners are on-site, and offer a warm welcome and great local recommendations. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, about a half mile from the I-5 exit. Which means they're away from all the gas stations, fast...

I booked and paid for this through Hotel .com. When I arrived they wanted to give me a smelly smoking room. Apparently that's what the website assigned. Even though there were non smoking rooms available that clearly weren't going to be rented out at 10pm, the proprietor wouldn't let me change rooms without $12 up charge. Check in took about...

I have stayed there several times over the years. The owners are friendly, the rooms are clean. It is very basic, but great for an inexpensive room while visiting Thunderhill Raceway. I like the location too, more in town than on I5.

The Economy Inn is an older establishment but cozy. The room was very comfortable. It also had microwave, small refrigerator, and coffee maker. The room was very clean. The management was nice and helpful about this area. I would stay here again.

For a motel charging (gouging) $112 per night, the room we got was in a horrible state (they told us it was the only room available)....the carpet was dirty and had cigarette burns (it is advertised as a non-smoking room), the dirty drapes barely hanging on the rod had to be paper-clipped shut, there was only one hanger on the...

We were road-weary; it was about 3am, and the previous 4 motels I had called for a last-minute late night room, didn't answer. Even though I woke the poor owner up here, he absolutely accommodated us, and with a friendly welcome at that. The room was totally clean, neat, comfortable, and the best price for miles around. Well, except for...

Off the beaten track, the location turned out to be an advantage as it was very quiet and only two minutes from the bustle of the freeway interchange. The owner greeted me with a smile, heartfelt welcome and recommendations for places to eat and directions to the birding locales. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. The shower was great...

I found this to be the perfect traveler's hotel when in need of place to stop for the evening during an eleven hour road trip. Fair pricing - same as online - provided at the front counter upon arrival in the evening. Located in town a short ways up the main street, but welcoming to be away from the noise...

Very basic but recently remodeled and very clean. Nice looking furniture. Comfortable beds. Just basic -- thin towels, no shampoo, no pictures on the walls. There is a diner across the street and it is fairly quiet. I was just there to sleep before an early appointment and it was just fine for that.
