We adored our hostess, she was very friendly and helpful. Loved the large tiled shower. They are working very hard to upgrade this motel.
Carpet needed cleaning
We appreciated being close to South Shore restaurants and comforts. Being close to 89 meant adventures along the west shore were easy and access from 50 quick.
Quiet, very clean (recently re-done) rooms. Comfortable, nice mini-fridge and microwave. Owners very friendly, and concerned that the wedding party also staying there may have been disruptive (they weren't). I'd stay there again.
Sita welcomed us with open arms and did everything just right. On a scale of 1-10, this was a 10. Awesome!
Nothing at all.
Room, owners, location and price. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is near 4 or 5 good restaurants and convenient to shopping areas.
Can hear the Highway, but not too bad
The staff was so welcoming and warm, she made us feel like family. We needed to check-in before the check-in time and had requested this accommodation a week before, they completely understood and let us check-in two hours before. The location made us feel safe and was close enough to all the action, yet the room was quiet enough for a good sleep.
There is no toothpaste, iron or iron board in the room, but we brought our own anyways.
parking close to room
The owners are very friendly. Location si very convenient too.
It's a bit old and noise isolation could be improved.
Good central location. Cute room. Comfy bed. Nice bedding
Lots of traffic noise even with door and window closed. Mini fridge cycled on every 15 minutes or so. Too noisy for a light sleeper.
Clean, comfortable bed and BR. Room with mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Family owned with nice staff.
WI FI was unreliable and EXTREMELY SLOW. Do not stay here if you need internet connection. Location is on main road at a major junction noise level is high. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Provided off brand soap (2 bars), shampoo and only 1 packet of coffee. NO TEA, SUGAR, CREAMER, DECAF COFFEE, STIR STICKS, NAPKINS. Only 1 small paper cup provided.
Staff, Room size and location
Location close to city center, easy check in.
Coffee maker broken, room finishes clean but dated.
The receptionist (and the actual owner of the motel) was lovely. She advised us where to dine, go sunbathing, swimming, hiking, and kayaking. The recommendations of local people are always most reliable so what I expected was a good piece of advise from the staff. I wasn't disappointed. The location is amazing: 10-minute drive to a huge casino, 5-minute drive to the nearest beach, 10-minute drive to the vista point. There is a huge parking lot next to the motel. We also didn't check out on time but nobody tried to kick us out. The staff were more than just polite.
It was a bit too warm at night so we struggled to fall asleep. I was wondering if there was air condition in the room after I had seen a big radiator on the wall but whatever it was, it didn't work.
Owners live on the property and are very friendly. It is a convenient location near the "Y"of Hwy 50 and CA 89. Room and bedding was clean. Can walk across the street to Thai and Italian restaurants. Free Wi Fi and basic cable tv. Room has coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. Room with overhead fan.
No coffee to use with the coffeemaker during one stay and no decaf available during this stay. No sugar, creamer, cups or stir sticks provided. Skimpy amenities...2 small soaps and 1 travel size shampoo of cheap quality. VERY noisy location. Suggest using ear plugs. Swimming pool was dry so no swimming. No air conditioning.
First thing I saw, empty pool. Broken door lock, no AC, not clean, 3/4" gap under front door, dirty very old kitchen, sloping floor, broken blinds, very hot, the water in the shower smelled and they charged my credit card before I saw the room. I told them I could not stay in these conditions and was told sorry no refunds. It was so bad it's comical. I should have paid again an stayed somewhere else.
Dead bolt would not work, wifi would not work, shower door did not have handle. All in all room dirty, and did not even come close to the pictures on the web site. Not only would I not recommend this hotel, but I will never use booking.com again. We had booked two nights. We did not spend the second night, but found other accommodations.
Good location. Friendly family owned staff.
The dude at the front desk was nice and accommodating, but the place still sucked!
For, $224 a night you've got to be kidding me! This place is old, run down, lacks air conditioning, and the facilities are out of touch with the times!
Clean, good tv
teeny tine soap big Jacuzzi tub with no way to turn on the jets cold water just a trickle
Clean and friendly
All I cared about was a clean room and a place to sleep That was met
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Very noisy from traffic. No air conditioning.
Location and price.
No coffee provided.
Friendly staff! Clean room! Only place that would accept us for 2 nights over the 4th of July weekend.
Shower ran out of hot water, and freezing water came out instead. My girlfriend was upset, and it turned out some guy filled up the jacuzzi with the hot water, completely draining the hot water heater...They fixed the problem, but wasn't fun for my girlfriend. Water pressure could be better too (small shower stall), and not easy to change speeds on the ceiling fan.
From the moment we got there we felt like one of the family members. Sita was wonderful.the place was so clean. We arrived 5 hours ahead of check in and Sita gave us a room upgrade for only 10 dollars more. We got the suite which was great because one of my friends snores. Lol over all I would rate this place a 10, thank you for such a fun place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone if you want a bang for your buck. Thank you. Sheri. From Sacramento California
