    The room was very clean, bathroom looked new, towels new, shower large with great shower head and pressure. The motel is right off the freeway, we did not have any freeway noise. The Motel was packed by morning, we were not disturbed at all by noise from the other guests.

    Little things like, No Ice machine, bathroom door would not close, only 1 pack of coffee, shower dripped all night. None of these things were a big deal. Until Check out, see full comment below. The HUGE COMPLAINT is about the owners/managers. I was specific upon check in not to charge my card as my disabled Mother in the truck will be paying at check out, its to hard for her to get in and out of a vehicle frequently. The property we were staying at next door was down a hill. Normally, hotels/motels keep a card number in case any issues come up, so at the time I really didn't thing this was a problem. Upon check out, when I went to hand the man at the counter cash, he said they had charged my card plus a hefty deposit, but I could get my deposit back, I reiterated my card was not to be charged, he then wanted to charge me $7. to have the charges reversed. (I was not charged the $7.) Meanwhile he was arguing that "EVERYONE PAYS" (I had cash in my hand!) Finally he did reverse the charges but it was Sunday so my bank didn't process the credit until late Monday night. It's a good thing we had cash for gas and food or we would have been stuck on the road with a disabled senior citizen that was only up in the area in the first place for a Celebration of Life for a family member. I should mention I was very professional in my tone and body language. I mentioned the above minor issues, that my Mom had kindly taken the time to write down for them. Even so he said I need to be not so negative, I should be positive, he appeared really upset, angry. No apology, and taking no responsibility for any issues. You would think a proprietor would want to know if the shower leaked! In fact the owner/manager said if I wanted to pay $200. down the hill then to expect all of the above amenities. Not to expect a motel to provide them, they are just complimentary and don't have to be provided.

    The hotel management was very nice and the room was comfortable. The motel was newly renovated with amenities most useful. We definitely would stay at this motel again in the future.

    The walk up the hill to the main office was more difficult since I am handicapped. It wasn't clearly visible where the main office was due to the renovation project.

    Surrounded by trees and a small but very clean pool.

    The mattress was not comfortable.

    Clean pool area, clean rooms, towels and bedding were fresh. Very helpful staff.

    The coffee in the room was terrible.
