No water pressure in shower, no electrical outlets in room to hook up phone charger, room bed furniture real old and sheets had smoking smell and holes from prior burns
There was a refrigerator in the room. The motel provides easy accessibility to major freeways. Coffee in the morning was decent.
The whole motel appears to be infested with cockroaches and other bugs. While I have no issue with subpar accommodations such as this (dilapidated furnishings and bathrooms, 70s-era CRT TV), the presence of bugs is a deal-breaker. In my first room during my 2-night stay, I found a roach (albeit small in size) and a long insect/millipede. I handed the two specimens to the reception and was moved to another room in a different part of the property. I found two roaches in that room as well (small in size). Someone who appeared to be the manager said that the particular area where the motel is located attracts a lot of bugs; there are several upscale hotels in the vicinity, so presumably they suffer from similar pest control issues? I heard from longer term guests that it apparently used to be even worse previously, but that's not much of a consolation. In this day and age, this motel also charges $8 per 24-hour period of WiFi usage. There are no curtains for privacy: only blinds that completely block out light. Although the check-in time was stated to be 3pm in the confirmation, there was a sign at the door of the reception stating that check-in was at 3:30pm. No one was allowed to check in prior to 3:30pm. Perhaps it's asking too much for this site to provide a representative testimonial when browsing for hotel options? The testimonial for this dump that was attached to its listing was by someone who gave it 9.5/10, claiming it was very clean and excellent.
I didn’t like it because there were cockroaches in my room and the day I left I had had rashes everywhere
The room smelled like stale smoke even though it was advertised as a non-smoking room. The shower curtain had a hole cut into it. The sink's overflow was rusted and corroded.
Quiet and easy check-in process
