    This was a disappointing stay, made worse by the check-out experience. After check-in, I walked into the room, which had a stale old smell. I hopped in the shower, which was old and grungy. The water shifted from cool to cold, by its own whim. The room had no privacy, unless you enjoy closing the curtains and living like a shut-in. That's not my idea of a good stay in sunny California. Worse, the internet was unusably slow. It took me a good hour to send a couple of e-mails, without attachments. The worst part, though, is what happened at check-out. I had the opportunity to stay somewhere more pleasant for a couple of nights. When I came back, still within my one week pre-paid stay, I found a privacy notice on my door that I didn't remember leaving. Then I found my key wasn't working. So I went to the front desk, and found out: my room had been rented out! I had already pre-paid this room, and was counting on it for that night. This is akin to theft, in my opinion, taking from me something I had paid for. So it was a mediocre stay, in a mediocre area, made worse by a terrible management. I should say the cleaning staff was very nice and hard working, but there's only so much they can do with what they are given.

    The Motel is cute with nice landscaping and off of State Street so there is no traffic noise. The interior pool looked very nice, although we didn't have time to go swimming. Room was confortable but could use some updating. I guess they are putting $* in renovations in during the next year. Good value for the money.
