Stay away!

Pros: Nothing!
Cons: Everything
Location: terrible rundown location, felt very unsafe
This place is bad even for a cheap motel. I could tell it was going to be bad when check in requires being buzzed into the tiny office, where only one person is allowed at a time. Even though I had already paid, they insisted on a CASH only deposit, no credit cards. Parking is limited, so good luck getting a spot if you go anywhere at night. The room had basically nothing in it, not even an alarm clock. There's no way I'd ever step in the shower, it was so filthy. The bed was sagging and incredibly uncomfortable.

Avoid if you can

Pros: This hotel was horrible and the only thing decent about it was the bed.
Cons: Everything about this motel needs to be improved
Location: Fairly close to Disneyland
First off, the front office was extremely disorganized (paperwork everywhere in piles). It took them forever to even find my booking, I think they lost it in all of their clutter. Only given one key card for two people staying in the room. The door into the hotel room stuck terribly, making it difficult to get into the room and the door didn't even have a deadbolt lock. The carpet was filthy with stains. There was a hole in the wall. The first night there were spiders all over the bathroom. We killed about a dozen. The second night two bugs came out of the shower drain. So disgusting! As we were leaving I also found a dead cricket. The bathroom door stuck as well. All the lights were missing their lamp shades. The shower head was obnoxiously loud and through out our stay you could hear the toilet making noises. Very loudly, would wake me up at night. If I could have got my money back and the other motels around us actually had available rooms I would have left. Thank god the towels and bedding were clean, that was the only thing decent about the hotel.

Clean and nice hotel

Pros: the room was spacious and comfortable.
Cons: a continental breakfast would be a nice addition as well as not having to be buzzed into the lobby.
Location: there were a few different restaurants near by, both sit down and fast food establishments as well as an amusement park. it was only 20 min from LA
This hotel was right on a main road with plenty of things around it. There is an amusement park down the road, a few different styles of restaurants around it, and it only took about 20 minutes to get to downtown LA from here. The TV was decent sized, the bathroom was clean and fairly big. The bed was big and comfortable. They had Direct TV in all the rooms. The parking lot allowed for me to be right in front of my room too so it was easy to load and unload. i would definitely stay here again.
