On the way to sunshine
Stayed here on route to Palm Springs. They are trying to give it a mid century modern theme which would be great but everything could use some TLC. The room was relatively clean but the floor had stains and the bed pretty comfy but it’s a big room and should have had a. king sized bed. Also, only 3 pillows and no extra blankets. My biggest beef is the bathroom, it needs some work, the shower is a joke and the water dribbles out. Then there’s what purports to be ‘breakfast’. All they had were stale, crumbly muffins and Quaker oatmeal. I know this is a budget motel but come on, they could do better. Not sure I’d stay here again because then you have to go out and get a real breakfast so what have you saved.
Totally a scam
The short version is: Even for a budget hotel, it's not worth it. There are better options nearby for not much more. The longer version is: Aside from the fact that the walls are paper-thin and you can hear everything including normal conversation of your neighbors, the night we stayed here another guest was very super drunk and very loud -- yelling, slamming doors, stomping past our room, and generally making it impossible to sleep even with earplugs and music playing, starting around 10pm. I called the after hours number to let someone know, but it wasn't resolved until 3am. We had to get up early, so got about 3 hours of sleep that night. When I asked for a refund--and I would have accepted any sort of token that the hotel was sorry, like, say, a discount on a future stay, a gift card for a local business, SOMETHING to acknowledge that it was a really crappy night's stay and they were sorry that they hadn't managed to handle the situation in a more timely way--the manager instead basically said: it's a cheap hotel, so what did I expect? So, yeah, I guess it's a cheap hotel; what did I expect? Take your business elsewhere if you want the establishment to take care of any issues in a timely manner, OR treat you like a human. (I haven't mentioned anything else, like the "continental breakfast" is packets of oatmeal and water that takes a million years to heat, or the fact that you hear traffic from the freeway all night, or the surfaces of the desks and tables in our room were sticky and gross. Even for a budget hotel, it's not worth it. You will be happy you went elsewhere.)
My husband and I, with our 9 m/o stayed here for our mini honeymoon/ anniversary trip and it was wonderful. The people are very friendly and sweet, they are helpful, we came in late and they made check in a breeze, sent us a text with room number and code and we were all set to go. Got our stuff and baby set to relax and go to bed. Neighbors were good and best check out system in my opinion. Absolutely love the decor too... very fun.. Definitely staying there again next time we come to town. Thanks for a great time!
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
This place is a DUMP! Our room smelled really musty and stale. The whole place felt dirty. The pillows on the bed were flat!!! The fan in the room was filthy, the lock on the window was broken and had a broom handle to keep it closed. The curtains were hanging from the rod. Breakfast starts at 9am so they dont have to provide for people leaving early. It's not much to begin with but good restaurant next door. Limited parking but you can park in the restaurants lot. All publicity photos are deceiving.
