    Acceptable place considering the price of other lodging options. Rooms were clean and location was convenient.

    Older and dated facilities in fair condition. The outside areas were dirty and cluttered.

    We were there that particular weekend to move our daughter into CSU Monterey Bay. I wanted a room that was close to the school. The room was fairly clean inside, new paint, ect...There were no fitted sheets on the beds and the mattress was nasty. The bed was not for comfort. The location was great right on Fremont, but the outside of the motel was dirty, trash all over, handrail for the stairs was broken, shopping cart in the hallway. I wouldn't have stayed there if I were not desperate for a room for that weekend. I would not recommend this room to anyone.

    The room was clean and organised. The shower was roomy and the bathroom was clean. Overall a good place to spend the night in.

    The air conditioning didn't work but it was cool out side so all we had to do was open a window and it cooled off the room.

    The location was close to our intended destinations and the price for 2 nites was good! Free muffins and coffee in the morning were provided; plus a small frig and microwave. The TV had decent reception!

    Staff fighting in the parking lot! A little noisy in the rooms and could hear the neighbor in the next room Snoring all nite!! Our bed for the first nite was so hard it felt like sleeping on a board!! The staff did change out the bed for us for the 2nd nite and it was Great!

    the bed was comfortable

    they advertised in room blow dryers . They did not have any. No radio/alarm clocks. The television picture was not clear it rolled the whole time it was on. When we asked the manager about all he said was that's as good as it gets. Broken ice machine. We had to go to a neighboring hotel To get ice. They also said breakfast included which consisted of dried out 1/4 of a muffin, coffee and juice.

    I had the three bed suite, nothing fancy. But it's clean and in acceptable condition for a transit. After all, it's a budget motel, so you can't ask for more.

    Location is convenient, right off Hwy 1. Price was cheap.

    1) It looks like the owners bought two adjacent properties, Gateway Motel and Thunderbird Motel, and combined them. However, they still use two offices. So when we checked in, we used the 9070 address and went to the Gateway office. But then our room was over in the Thunderbird property, which required us to drive the car all the way around a city block in order to park near our room. 2) Service was poor. When we came down for the continental breakfast (which consisted of orange juice, coffee and two types of muffins, chocolate and poppy seed, cut up into quarters), I noticed there were no plates to put our muffins on to take back to our room. I asked the gentleman behind the desk if he had any plates. He said, "The plates are in your room." Well, they weren't. So no plates. I got the same sort of answer when I noticed we didn't have an ice bucket in our room. I called down and asked if they had ice buckets. Again, "You should have an ice bucket in your room." Well, we didn't. Why don't they just say, "We don't have plates", or "Sorry, we forgot to put an ice bucket in you room." I'd rather hear the truth than some little white lie. Btw, the ice buckets and ice machine are over in the Gateway office and the continental breakfast is over in the Thunderbird office. Also, if you still want to stay here, I suggest you check in at the Thunderbird office, which comes up before the Gateway office. This way, you don't run the risk of having to driving around the block in order to park near your room.

    We liked the location of room. Glad we could open front window and bathroom window to air out room. Sheets were very clean. We had refrigerator and microwave. It was very quiet. The ice machine was close to room.

    Room was very old and showed. The towels were so thin, I would have used them for rags. We found trash all over the carpet. Almost all fixtures in bathroom were rusty. Part of bathroom faucet was missing and water sprayer all over sink. Mirrors were so old that the light was bleeding through. Price for room should have been $50 or less and was over $130. The tile in bathroom was not cleaned in the corners or on top edges. Shower door did not fit the opening. Curtin in bedroom had paint on it, as did the carpet. Our breakfast consisted of coffee and 1/8 of a muffin.

    Location and front staff

    This is a motel that is in bad shape! Pluming makes noise, old furniture,stained carpets housekeeping does a bad job of house cleaning. Towels are clean but very rough. Save yourself the nightmare stay somewhere else!

    We loved the price and the location. The clerk at the front was pleasant.

    The room was small, but it was clean.
