We've stayed a few times when visiting family. They are quite friendly, and the rooms are a good size and value for the money. This last stay, however, wasn't as good as in the past. Our non-smoking room smelled of smoke covered by flowery room freshener. The mattress on the bed was very worn, a huge divot in the middle...

My family and I always stay here when we visit our relatives in Paradise. The rooms are large, they accept pets (for a fee), and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. We like the family-friendly atmosphere and there are well-priced restaurants nearby.

This was the best motel we have ever stayed at. The staff was very pleasant, the rooms are equipped with frig., microwave, and coffee pot, the room has a back patio with beautiful landscape and they have chairs and a ashtray for those that smoke. It's so quite set back off the road

This hotel is so cute! I little old fashion but so nice and quite. Very clean and nice. The pool is really great as well as the hot tube. We were not able to use the pool this trip as we had rain in California. Which only made the stay better. The hotel sits back away from the street so...

The front desk manager, Sally, was extremely helpful in assisting us in cancelling a Booking.com reservation made in error at the motel. She listened and found a remedy that was much to our satisfaction. We stayed just one night at the Ponderosa Garden and found it to be a jewel of a property. The room was huge and cozy at...

As a motel, this is an excellent property (don't compare to high end hotel). Very clean and nice property. Set off the road, so very quiet. We stayed in room that is not facing pool, as very sensitive to noise. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Pool is a little small, but nice area and refreshing in 100+heat. Would stay...

We stayed here overnight last Easter weekend. It was recommended by our client for whom we were doing a DJ job Saturday night. This was a very comfortable, cozy spot. It was clean and well stocked... not the newest furniture but clean and in good repair is all I really need. The staff was very sweet and the grounds quite...
