Hotel was conveniently located, that is about the only nice thing that I can say about this hotel. The manager was RUDE, and it was quite obvious that there were some shady things going on in other rooms at night. I have stayed at other Super8's and have never had any problems. Will never stay at this one again!!

Good hotel, but after taking a freezing cold shower, I politely let the clerk no I had no hot water. With no sympathy or apology, he explained the boiler was down and the guy was coming to fix it. I was on the road for an extended trip, and only needed the room for the shower--I can sleep on a mattress in my van. A simple "we're so sorry, but...." would have gone a long way. I understand things happen.

I hated the room. It was dull and boring. Guess that's why it referred to as a motel. Room was ok, however stains on bed spreads and sheets and blankets. Bathroom had mold and poor cleaning of bathroom. The pool was poorly maintained and could see the mold from another country. It depends on the type of person you are to be able to stay here. If you like cleanliness or have OCD stay away. Stayed at a hotel because I know they would not return my money nor give me a much cleaner room excuse me bed spread or blanket.

For the price I paid, I was very happy with my accommodations. I had no problems and the staff were friendly. Ice and Internet were available. I had an in-room fridge and microwave. The room was larger than expected with a table and chair in the middle, next to a lounge chair with ottoman; and the bed was very comfortable. I stayed on the 3rd floor. When I go back to the area, I'll stay here again. And it just one block off the 8 freeway.

Excellent customer service and room condition for the price. Parking situation was very convenient and is close to the freeway. The room was big and a lot cleaner than other motels that I had stayed at. The wifi for some reason doesn't really work at this motel. I had stayed in this motel two times and both times i had trouble connecting to the wifi.

After traveling for hours we were looking for a cheap motel to rest for the night. This hotel was close enough to the freeway and was a good price. Checked the room for critters (because I always do this) and was happy to find none. The beds were comfortable and they had free breakfast (cereal, pastries, boiled eggs, fruit, juices, coffee, etc.). Overall good experience based on price, purpose, comfort, and convienience.

The first thing I noticed was that the room smelled nice. It was very well appointed with a microwave and a fridge. The room was neat and clean. The only single drawback would have been not enough towels in the room, but we could have called them for that, we just didn't. It was a really nice room for the price.

The hotel was right off of Interstate 8, but far enough that there was no traffic sounds. The parking lot was really small and there was no parking for vehicles pulling a trailer. I had to disconnect my trailer and park side by side...very inconvenient. I had asked for a first floor room when booking yet was put on the top floor. Not really an issue, but again inconvenient.

Stayed here during an anniversary trip and stayed for 4 nights. Easy access from the freeway. We laterally exited the freeway and were there! (Possibly illegal u-turn to enter though) The check-in staff was not as treacherous as some other reviews stated but the guy wasn't exactly pleasant or talkative either. I had a few apprehensions about our reservation from some of the reviews saying that the hotel wouldn't honor them but it wasn't an issue for us. The room was exactly as pictured and was pretty quiet during our stay. We were on the 3rd floor (which my wife and I prefer) at an end next to the staircase. Never found the elevator described in the room fire escape plan but didn't look very hard since we took the stairs the whole time. The room had a mini fridge and microwave that did the job just fine. When we checked out, the staff was pleasant and prompt. We would stay here again, especially since the price is a great value considering it's lower than motel 6 and as nice as a standard best western.
