For the price, this hotel is SO WORTH IT! My family and I had so much fun. Our room was spacious, with two queen beds, very COMFORTABLE , beautifully decorated, and clean. The laundry facilities were close by and I loved that I could use my credit card on the machines since I was short a quarter. Just loved it! Breakfast- although nothing fancy, delivered to you every morning, was a different experience for us but fun and enjoyable. Overall, we had a lovely time! Thank you TERRI for taking such good care of us! The staff was patient, not only with me but from what I saw with every guest. I noticed a lot of foreigners checking in from all over the world and the staff was so accommodating, sweet and helpful in getting everyone happily checked in.

We loved just about everything at this cute hotel. Staff was very friendly except I felt the bartender didn’t make much effort, we had to go up to bar and order and return to pick up our drinks, it would’ve been nice if he would have brought them to the table etc. overall though I would stay here again loved 99% of it!!!

A modernized motel with updated furnishings and a campy vibe. Some of the rooms open up to parking lot and 101 freeway.

Very clean, quite. Close to 101 highway, would highly recommend. Loved the idea of having them leave your continental breakfast in brown bag on your door each morning.
