Redwood City, California
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

So we had 3 adults and 3 children and this hotel had a room with 3 queen beds which met that need. Hotel rooms and common areas definitely need to be updated. Bedding and room felt old, but despite that it was still a good value for what we paid. Service at the front desk was very friendly. The free...

This place was adequate...clean, large dark room. Linens a bit tired. This a place where time stopped. Sink occupying big part of wall in room ( not in bathroom) and polyester bedspread that harks of the 1980s. Good for transit, not for prolonged stay

Not sure if this was the place we had reviewed, but glad we stayed here. They have the friendliest staff ever. Location is great, large room was comfortable, clean & good view of the bay. Breakfast selection is more than adequate. Did get a little bit of noise from the next room. Décor is a tad bit dated but certainly...

Chose this hotel at the last minute after reading the reviews on this site. No reservations but check-in was a breeze. Staff friendly. Very reasonable price Huge, clean room. Free beakfast was a bit better than standard hotel breakfast. I have no reservations about recommending this hotel!!! Don't count on any real water view though (but can get to beach...

Gustine, California
Reviewed 28 November 2016

Room (318) was large and clean. Sink in the living area was a little strange, but workable. The bedspread was a dark, floral pattern and while it appeared clean, we feel that bedspreads should be a light color to give a little more peace of mind. Bed was comfortable. Free continental breakfast was good and the lobby was decorated nicely...

Lawrence, Kansas
Reviewed 27 November 2016

This is a very nice place with clean, comfortable rooms. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is above average for a hotel. There is adequate free parking. Don't eat at the adjacent restaurant, it isn't very good. If you are going to spend a lot of time in your room, get the ocean view. Otherwise, it isn't worth it since...

Drove down from Oregon and decided to stay the night so we could spend more time exploring Jedidiah Smith Redwoods. Hotel was conveniently located in town and staff was incredibly helpful with recommendations for dinner and entertainment. Definitely recommend this place and will stay again.

I would recommend this hotel based on its staff and comfort. Good location, with a good view. Very clean and comfortable, with exceptionable staff. The only downside is the outdated decour. Otherwise it would earn five stars.

Charleston, South Carolina

Ocean view motel is an average type motel. One of three with the same owners in town. Room was large with excellent bed and good bathroom. Continental breakfast buffet did not include eggs or waffles. View out the back was of the Crescent City harbor in the distance. Hope this helps.

This is a no frills hotel that's a little dated in it's decor. That being said, it's clean, minutes from the redwoods, and the breakfast is free and adequate. The staff were very kind.
