We got a Disabled Room at my request and it fit the bill. I asked for a refrig.and one was supplied and it worked fine. The breakfast was simple (Cereal, Muffins and Toast. Coffee,Tea and Juices) Beds were firm but we slept. To me the VERY BEST part was I was able to get in and out of the pool...

We stayed here to attend a concert at SaveMart center. Perfect location for that! It was great to be able to walk across the street to venue, and not have to deal with traffic after the concert. However... the room was kind of skeevy. Carpet seemed dirty, and worse, the bathroom was dirty. I wiped out the tub myself, with...

Like many hotels nowadays, it shows its age but the owners are staying on top of it. The room was clean; bed comfy; bathroom decent. AC and heater worked well. There wasn't a fridge or micro in the room but I don't believe hubby requested one. We were just overnighting it anyway. Fantastic pool. It was 90+ degrees when we...

For one night it's okay. The room was clean, a little bit old fashioned and the smell wasn't quite nice, but nothing really bad. The staff was very friendly. The location is close to restaurants and supermarket (Main Street). Also you get a 10% off when eating at the brew house (2 miles away). All in all for one night...

I booked a room for 4 nights, with two queen beds. As I was traveling with pets, I was unaware of the pet policy other than they were accepted. I did not know that the pets weight combined could not exceed 65 pounds and that it would also cost 20.00 more, per pet, for a room until I arrived at...

Thank you for the review. I use every review to make sure I correct potential problems. I'm sorry you had a tough time locating our pet policy in our website. All major booking engines have our hotel listed as a pet friendly hotel and asks the traveller to contact the hotel for specific pet policies. As a pet owner, I...

We booked two rooms for one night. The rooms were clean and comfortable but nothing special. It was the least expensive motel I could find that didn't look like a complete dump. The breakfast was included and met our basic needs. We used the hotel as a low cost stop over between Kings Canyon and Yosemite and it served our...

Please be sure to ask for one on your next stay. I thank you again for the great review! Sincerely, Management

I've passed this hotel many times. Their sign outside advertises at $59 special. However, that offer wasn't available when I booked (a week BEFORE our planned stay). I requested a mini-fridge for medication, which was in the room at check-in time. But, it was hot (not plugged in) and took 24 hours to get semi-cool. The rooms are clean and...

Thank you so much for the review. I'm sorry you could not get the advertised rate. Our managers special has a few rooms allocated at that rate. If you booked for a busy day, specially if its a concert, the allocated rooms are depleted fast. I appreciate you taking the time to review the hotel. Sincerely, Management
