The motel was very clean and the check in was fast. The man checking me in was friendly. We were there a bit before the normal check in, but he checked us in. They were redoing a part of the parking lot, but it was not a problem. The motel is right on Highway 101 so it is easy to...

We were tired of driving, it was getting late, and everything else was full. That's the only scenario where anyone should stay at this hotel. Door barely locked, world's smallest bathroom (no joke...you had to straddle the toilet to use the sink), no hair dryer, uncomfortable bed and pillows (and it was a little disconcerting to even lie down). We...

I'm not sure if they reserve the good rooms for dignitaries or something, but for those that go here expecting a deal for the $55 dollars they put in to stay a night are going to be sorely disappointed. We chose the hotel based on its location, and their price. It didn't turn out well. We arrived early in the...

Staff was rude at check-in, carpet was at least 20 years old. Pool filled in with dirt. Room needs major updating. Wi-Fi was intermittent at best, if you could get on. Not worth coming back. I will stay at another property when I return to this area.

We found this place to be clean and convenient. This place deserves five stars for the class of motel it is. Simple, old fashioned, clean. Pleasant staff. And so affordable. We are happy we chose Lark. We're not fussy. Included a fridge, coffee maker, air conditioner, microwave, and excellent internet! PLUS! THE SHOWER WAS AMAZING.... water very hot, and the...

We had 2 rooms and carpet was terrible in both rooms. They were both stained and filthy! Neither rooms had ANY hot water for showering. The shower was cold beginning to end. The room rate plus tax was $66, but not worth the room. Next time will pay more and stay somewhere else.

This place is run down and filthy. Even the towels were dirty as you could see where the maids hands had left brown marks on them! Non smoking room with wires hanging from the ceiling where the smoke detector used to be and an ashtray on the nightstand by the bed. Nicer hotels will offer a low rate to fill...
