Pros. Clean and very handy location. Walk to shops and restaurants But be aware that the rooms and bathrooms are very small, our room had no coffee maker, minimal breakfast and it isn't laid out until 8am

Came all the way from Indonesia. And very happy to stay at Agave Inn. Room always clean and fresh, especially with the bathroom. The Mexican vibe on the decor makes it pretty unique. great experience!

It's always a pleasure to find a quiet, clean, inexpensive place to stay. There is nothing pretentious or fancy here, simply a comfortable and convenient spot to park the car, get a good night's sleep and move on.

I booked the Agave Inn all the way back in July 2016 for a bachelorette party to be held the first weekend of February. There were 10 ladies in our party and the price of the Agave Inn was the best option for our needs. We were able to book 2 double rooms with kitchenettes and one king room for...

I needed a reasonable place to stay going to the doctor for an appointment. It was an adorable decorated place with everything you might need for a nice visit. Nice bathroom, fridge and microwave, located near all kinds of restaurants in walking distance. Muffins and fruit and coffee served in a nook outside so just get your stuff and eat...

What an adorable motel! Real cozy and comfortable place to stay. I will definitely stay at this motel again. Great location. I was upgraded at no extra charge. The ladies that run this quaint motel are the best and very accommodating. Tastefully decorated with bright colors. A very welcoming atmosphere.

Agave Inn is great for a stopover. Our room on the outside building was spotless and brightly decorated. It was a little noisy during the day from street traffic but that wasn't an issue at night. The lighting was kind of odd, with dim lights by the bed and too-bright lights in the ceiling - again, not a huge problem....

If all the motels in USA would be like this one, there wouldn't be so many disappointments. It's a small unit, from outside it doesn't look much better than any other small motel however once you enter in one of the rooms, there's a huge difference: bright colours, nice and modern decoration, very clean, cosy, very good bathroom. You know...
