I brought a family friend as incentive to keep doing good in life and took him on the Giant Dipper and Three Loggers Revenge. We had a blast. The room was very impressive. I stay in a different room every year but this is going to be the one I come back to. The Kuerig, And the hot tub sold...

The Continental Inn was a wonderful surprise. I didn't expect much for $99. But it was lovely - soft big king bed, very quiet, quiet aircon, lovely bath, clean as a whistle, fridge, microwave. They even have a steaming hot tub out under the stars! I hope Robert (night person) and Nolan (day staff) are there when you are -...

Very clean and nice looking room, the bed and pillow are super comfy and it doesn't look and feel like you are in a motel at all. There is a huge flat screen and hardwood floor, much better than any motels I've been so far

We booked this spot last minute to attend a concert for New Year's Eve. It was conveniently located off of the freeway with easily accessible parking right by our hotel room. Our room was very clean and comfortable with hardwood floors and shuttered windows. Despite being right off a busy street, there was limited noise. The staff was friendly and...

My sister, nephew and I drove up the coast and stayed here. It is a renovated hotel that wouldn't be so bad if the water pressure and noise wasn't so prominent. One of our neighbors had barking dogs, big loud trucks, and sounded like a dance party upstairs (floors are wooden). The pillows are pretty hard. I probably wouldn't stay...
