The motel is old but it was clean just not fancy. Parking was easy. Unfortunately, my room was far from the water heater so I wasted 5 minutes running water before it was warm enough to take a shower.

The entire room was extremely clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. There were both a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. There was plenty of space to hang cloths. The motel is conveniently close to a Hy 99 off/on ramp. The hotel manager and his wife were young and genuinely friendly. There were trains running at night...

Old carpet, that didn't look so clean. Spotted a cockroach in the bathroom. But the beds were okay. There's no pool anymore. Wifi not terrible. I guess you get what you pay for, it's a cheap alternative for staying a night in Lodi.

House keeping was awful & could never seem to get things right. The police show up...

The bed was clean and firm enough to be comfortable. Carpet had burns and stains, fixtures old but functional. Plenty of hot water and pressure. Small coarse towels. Could hear voices from the room next to ours and outside at times, but after traveling all day, we were beat and slept well. And for $50 out the door, not going...

The wifi is spotty at best. I was in room 17 and barely had a signal. Also, the pool was dirty and closed. Aside from that, the room was as expected. The blanket under the comforter was burned and stained but the bed was comfortable. I liked having the desk AND a table. The A/C was really good and kept...

You can walk to down town to shop. They have fast food places not far from the hotel. They have guides in the office to...

I was impressed with the managers mannerism at handling my situation. I had no reservation and needed a place while my home was under construction and was well taken care of. So comfy felt like home. Also very quiet and clean

Although several colleagues of ours have had relatively positive experiences at the Lodi El Rancho Motel, I regret to report that we did not. The price was really the best factor here, but the overall emotional cost of staying in a dirty room with loud, violent sounding disturbances throughout the night made me wish I had spent the extra money...

“Roll the dice here, lower numbers are up front by office, high numbers towards back of motel. Appears to have families in some units, some evening kids and skate boards on motel sidewalk, but became quiet after 9:00pm”
