    The motel was very convenient for a statewide event occurring within 1/2 mile with shopping/restaurants nearby.

  • Family with children

    It is a dirty place. The matresses are old and hard and it just feels dirty.

  • Couple
    7.4

    It was in a convenient location close to shopping and a little way from downtown. There was also free wi-fi which is very convenient.

    The cleaning service ignored the 'Do Not Disturb' sign twice in one day.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The staff were friendly and helpful. In terms of value for money, you get what you pay for.

    The location wasn't great, you needed to drive to get to the nice part of the town where the restaurants were.

    HAving a hotel room was nice. The room was not.

    The mattress had indentations from wear. There was a thick gray layer of dust under the bed. The shampoo didn't bubble and they didn't give me conditioner. The ironing board was burned in one spot. Made it almost impossible to iron.

  • Group of friends

    Good location if you want to stop for a rest traveling from San Francisco to Los Angeles

    Continental breakfast was just muffins and coffee

  • Couple
    6.6

    The room is a little small. We had to pay for the internet and it does not have the continental breakfast, only black cofee. It was ok!

    had to pay for the internet and did not have breakfast, for that price, could have.

    The view from the show was oddly nice ... Nice setting of trees to remove you from the shopping center across the street.

    Dead roach and it was 3 PM when I checked in and they still hadn't cleaned my room from the previous tenant ...

  • Family with children

    Even though the Vagabond was sold out, it was pleasantly quiet. In addition, it was very close to the freeway, which allowed for easy access to/from our destination.

  • Family with children

    I thought the room rates were fair. I was able to get a non smoking room that actually smelled like a non smoking room. Free wifi was a plus.

    I did not like the fact that when people started taking showers in other rooms the pipes were very loud. If I would have been asleep at the time I think it would have woken me up.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    We liked the Inn because it was in a beautiful location and it had a working spa and pool and was very clean on the outside. The staff was very helpfull and curtious.

    Our room was a little dusty. I noticed on the lamp shades and the carpet needed to be vacumed but wasnt anything major. The beds where maid , fresh towels etc.. I think it was more a maid service issue then anything.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The pool was good and so was the spa. Room was clean and the beds were reasonably comfy

    The Denny's next door was having work done to the roof which was noisy.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Good sized rooms, clean, nice pool and spa, friendly staff.

    Breakfast wasnt what i call breakfast. Very sweet danish pastries and muffins. Understand its budget, but bread rolls and croissants would be more suitable.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The fridge and micro in each room is terrific. The spa and pool are great.

    Possibly expand the breakfast to include cold cereal and oatmeal.

  • Single
    7.8

    Large room.

    Noisy AC and aging furnishings.
