"Worst Inn I have ever been to"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 22, 2014

Thank god we're only staying a night. Worst Inn I have ever been to. Linens are dirty, wall has blood stain, big gum stain on the carpet, dusty furniture, bathroom looks really old and dirty,and majority of the stuff looks really beat up and used. My friend who is staying with me is usually generous when rating hotels and she even said its very disappointing. I DO NOT recommend here at all, homeless people will welcome you when you enter the parking lot.

"Okay for an Overnight"

Stayed this month just for a night. Were thee people hanging out on the street...yes ... there is a gas station with a a Speedy Mart so it does a lot of traffic both with cars and people walking. There is also an Arby's fast food right in front. Did I walk to the speedy mart YES did I feel threatened or nervous NO. There are also several other hotels in the area one right next door. so there is a lot of people staying in the area.Some people I was with walked two blocks to the Buck Owens crystal palace and didn't have any complaints.about the walk or any problems. Is it a 5 star hotel NO but for a night's sleep it was clean and rooms were a nice size. Rooms in the back are quieter.

"Good value and pet friendly"

My husband and I have stayed here many time over the years when we have traveled with our pets. Its always been relatively clean and quiet although it could use a little updating. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is adequate.

"Burgers and fries?"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 2, 2014
Suraj B | Bakersfied, United Arab Emirates
We came in late from a long drive and just wanted to hit the bed. The front desk person was on the phone and continued to stay on the phone while she ordered her burger, fries and a coke via her friend who would pick it up from Burger King - then she had to give a back up order in case the friend went to Jack in the box. All we wanted to do was hit the bed... The Denny's across the street gives you a 15% discount with you key card or any other proof. If you can drive a little further (maybe an hour or so) I would suggest the Valencia location in stead - you get scrambled eggs and ham for the free breakfast which you don't get at most locations.

This hotel was not great. Maid did not restock our coffee condiments or toilet paper. Did have a dog area with bags and disposal. Bathroom door falling off hinges. I won't stay here again. We asked for an extra blanket and were told there were no extra blankets or towels available. The breakfast was not good.
