    The air conditioner works.

    Water soaked rug near bed, only one light bulb in basin area, bathroom door does not close, screens are ripped so the gnats got in, the bed was a sink hole, the sink was stopped up and would not drain.

    Not a thing!!!!

    It was in a horrible location and the hotel was a mess. Our room was just getting made when we arrived around 2 pm , The room was hot and very disgusting! I wish I had looked at the room before handed my credit card over to the employee there, Their ice machine wasn't even working Ive stayed in a Howard Johnsons before and its a shame that their name is on this awful motel.

    The hotel served it's purpose. The bedding was stained and blankets were clearly old and worn. There obviously has not been any attempt to make necessary repairs or upkeep in many years. The hotel is in poor condition overall. I would describe it as old and rundown! Would I stay there again???? Absolutely not! We booked 2 rooms because all other hotels were booked and our friends were so grossed out they drove 2 hours home after a long tiring day instead of sleeping there!

    The location and the mattresses were nice and firm. The manager was friendly.

    It was dingy looking and the phone was not charged and therefore didn't work. That's a security risk for guests. Staff didn't tell me that I needed to flip a switch on the wall in order to make the window unit's switch operational. The continental breakfast was just Corn Flakes, coffee and stale croissants.

    Very cheap

    Sink and bathroom were not well maintained

    Location near Interstate 8. Only 15 min to the beach. Air Conditioner worked well, and is placed high up on the wall above 6ft..so that it would cool the whole room and family.

    Spider in the bathroom, dirty/ stained carpets. Volume set to med/low. Cant' hear in the daytime, only at night, when it gets quieter. The price was too high for the rank of it. It's more of a single mans quarters.."on the run".

  • Older travelers

    It was less than a mile away from my daughter.

    I don't think anybody should stay here.

  • Single

    It is in a good location. The housekeep;ers did their best.

    TV was old and the reception was poor. The coffee maker took about 15 minutes to drip a pot of coffee. The air conditioner was old and barely worked. I could hear the couple next door having sex. Way over-priced compared to other hotels I've stayed at.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    The bathtub was peeling, the white towels were not "white". The pillow smelled like the previous people and there were stains all over the floor.

  • Family with children
    3.2

    Disgusting. There were stains like blood on the floor, the room stank, and there was mold around the windows. Each room was the same, horrible.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Really upset the whole group. The treatment we received as if we are criminal. Other experience in hj Buena Park made me book this place. But it is really opposite to what we expected. Horrible service.

  • Single

    Gave me wrong kind of room. No heater for 4 days. Freezing cold at night. Loud crackheads and whores.
