This was the best motel we have ever stayed at. The staff was very pleasant, the rooms are equipped with frig., microwave, and coffee pot, the room has a back patio with beautiful landscape and they have chairs and a ashtray for those that smoke. It's so quite set back off the road

This hotel is so cute! I little old fashion but so nice and quite. Very clean and nice. The pool is really great as well as the hot tube. We were not able to use the pool this trip as we had rain in California. Which only made the stay better. The hotel sits back away from the street so... More

The front desk manager, Sally, was extremely helpful in assisting us in cancelling a Booking.com reservation made in error at the motel. She listened and found a remedy that was much to our satisfaction. We stayed just one night at the Ponderosa Garden and found it to be a jewel of a property. The room was huge and cozy at... More

As a motel, this is an excellent property (don't compare to high end hotel). Very clean and nice property. Set off the road, so very quiet. We stayed in room that is not facing pool, as very sensitive to noise. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Pool is a little small, but nice area and refreshing in 100+heat. Would stay... More

We stayed here overnight last Easter weekend. It was recommended by our client for whom we were doing a DJ job Saturday night. This was a very comfortable, cozy spot. It was clean and well stocked... not the newest furniture but clean and in good repair is all I really need. The staff was very sweet and the grounds quite... More

This place was all I hoped it would be and more! I liked it was away from the busy road and the grounds were just lovely. Our room was quite large and a bonus was having a sink both inside and outside the bathroom. We didn't use the pool but enjoyed the patio while we were there. I read an... More

However after the long day and money spent what a beautiful little retreat this was, the room had a balcony with tables and chairs that look out to the pool. Close to pool and it was open late, and boy did... More
