Filthy floor with giant dirty bootprints when we checked in, so bad my bare feet were instantly black and needed to wash thoroughly. One towel was filthy, looked like it had just been folded and hung back up. Holes in the bathroom ceiling from past leaks. Looks like drug addicts staying here long term..super sketchy people riding bikes around the lot. Somewhat noisy near the freeway depending on room. On the positive side, they put all the overnighters together for safety a bit away from the long-termers.
Beware....you get what you pay for...my bad.

Homeless and prostitutes surrounded the hotel and occupied most of the rooms. Check-in lady was threatening to beat someone up on the phone during check-in. Room was flooded and cockroaches were everywhere. We ran out screaming.

If you don't mind: cockroaches crawling around in rooms that look like they haven't been serviced for a week or more with mold and dust/dirt on the walls.

As a warning, not sure if the free breakfast they offer is safe if they have cockroaches in their rooms.

Basic motel for a quick night passing through. We arrived late and the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was basic but clean. When we arrived there were other people around, but we went right to bed and didn't have any issues with noise. Didn't really use the wifi but it did connect fine. The free breakfast was what you would expect and I enjoyed my waffle. Convenient location right off the freeway with a gas station on the corner. No real frills here but for the price exactly what I expected and I got exactly what I needed.
