Convenient to the highway, great for getting on and off for an overnight stay.
It was fine for the cost.
Just had continental breakfast, had to eat at Denny's, had a few ants in room, not enough outlets, the ones they had were big and our plugs fell out.
Linens were shabby in fact the entire room was pretty shabby.
the location was close to family members and excellent shopping the scenery was awesome !! It's up the hill away from freeway noise
Front desk attendant on 9/16 Did not go out of her way to be friendly and she is your first point of contact for the Inn. she needs some training , This is the customers first impression of the Inn . She acted annoyed when we asked about the continental breakfast the following morning . Have a sign that reads breakfast from 8:00am -10:00am then ppl won't ask. What she does not know is that we are professional waiters from a 5 star hotel and we pick up on these cues. Verbal or non verbal .
Location from cal poly and everything else.
It smelled, dirty,
The staff listened attentively to our concerns and appeared anxious to please.
TV remote did not work. TV did not have the 3 major network stations available or due to language barrier, the staff was not able to understand our concern re availability of these stations.
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room with a very pleasant staff at a great price, look no further.
Liked the shower and the room was big And nice and clean
The air. Didn't work very well and it was a warm night. The bed was. Kinda hard.
Gate to pool has bolt sticking out that injured my partner. Reception staff was quite abrupt to each other which made us feel awkward.
Big comfortable clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff
Poor breakfast (only sweets), no wi-fi in the room (we had to get out of the room to connect)
Clean, well positioned motel. Excellent for a one night stay.
Breakfast 'room' was tiny with seating for 4 maximum. Not a lot of choice of breakfast items. Whoever had made up our bed had put the bottom sheet on the wrong way round so it stopped almost two feet from the bottom of the bed!
staff location cleanliness
Stayed for one night in passing. Clean and spacious motel room. No qualms if we had to stay there again.
Breakfast options not great but you're five mins from downtown and great restaurants.

Friendly Staff, great location close to freeway
WIFI did not work 3 of the 4 nights that I was there. Smoke free room- smelled like smoke, probably because carpets and drapes need to be replaced, had to run fan alot to get the smell reduced. Parking can be a little tight if you have a large vehicle (ie a dually F350 crew cab)
Great location right off highway. Next to IHOP for breakfast and Joes for dinner. No leaky faucets. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Comfortable bed. Excellent stop when you're driving through
The price-too high for a property that old. Live and learn. Will book earlier next time
The placement of The air conditioning
I loved the room and how close the location was to all the main attractions of the area. Great value would stay again.
- Great location. - Extremely friendly and helpful receptionists. - Nice big room, very comfortable. - Good wifi signal. - There's a Denny's right there for a quick meal.
Hotel was in an awesome location, the staff was very friendly, and the room was clean and very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again!
Location and price were both very fair.
We just had bad luck with some crazy neighbors who started a super loud truck at 4am. It woke both of us up as the windows were quite thin. Also if you have an iPhone the WiFi reception didn't work so well.
Very nice and clean
Love the friendly crew of employees
The bed was comfortable
The refrigerator didn't work properly
without laundry, small breakfast
