    Although the outside of the building looks updated, the interior badly needs a refresh. None of the furniture inside matches and looks very dated. There's only 3 hangers available to hang stuff in the closet. A/C hangs above one of the beds and is extremely...More

    We stayed in this motel one night during our road trip and it was more than OK. Friendly receptionist, clean room, very good price and even fresh brewed coffee and some sweets at check-out. Recommended!

    This Motel was one of the first and the best motels in our roud trip thru california. Me and my boyfriend stayed one night here and everything was perfect. Really clean room and location was good. I would recommend this place to all my friends.

    Unfortunately time has not been good for the old Sunbeam. Since we only paid about $69 I guess I shouldn't complain. But if you pay more than this be prepared. There is a nice fellow running the motel.

    Tiny noisy rooms!! Sleepless night! There is a huge vibration in the wall and the bed head is vibrating too... A lot a traffic on the street. The bathroom is really small. I don't understand the notes this motel received from visitors.
