Great valuePros: Cleanliness, location, noise level (low), and staff all exceeded expectations. Cons: Breakfast. Have a protein option like pb, hard boiled egg, cream cheese. Fruit was yucky and old/moldy. Beds are rock solid.
The classic "lipstick on a pig" motelPros: The room had a TV with plenty of channels. Mattress was comfortable. Cons: The only thing that justifies the $90 per night rate is a series of superficial renovations that do little to hide the fact that this is a fleabag motel worth perhaps $30 or $40 a night. My room had a brand new heater (which was already broken), which made for a very uncomfortable night when the outside temperature was below 40. Both of the brand new light fixtures were broken, so I had to use my cell phone as a flash light in my pitch dark hotel room. When I brought these issues up to staff, she said the handyman was "supposed to fix that today but will come back tomorrow." It also doesn't help that the place is in a seriously rough neighborhood, right on the freeway on one side (very loud) and disaffected youth drinking & yelling in the street on the other. Bottom line: save your $90 and get a really comfortable room in the valley. Don't get tricked like me!
