                Very rustic, not many amenities but good for the money. The staff were great and took care of any problems that arose.

                Room was smelly and needed a little updating. Slats off the blinds, hot water, and the heater was not great but they did give us a wall heater that made it ok.

                8.2

                i love that it's right across from the fairegrounds, and that breakfast is always very nice.

                i wish the hot tub still worked and they had a bigger hot water heater, but that's mostly a faire problem because we all get back to the hotel at the same time.

                The sheets were dirty...had not been changed from the previous people. No soap of any kind in the room. Cost was way too much for this lodge. The owners are trying to fix it up...but there is no excuse for this dirty sheets and no soap. We sleep with our clothes on and our sleeping bags. We should have gotten our money back but we had our grandkids with us and and they were tired. When booking a room I always look for the highest rating...Booked.net feld us on this on..

              • Couple
                2.4

                Nothing. The place was dirty and there was a huge fight amoung staff and an older women while we stayed there...cops were involved. I have two babies in diapers and it was very uncomfortable.

                No soap, dirty sheets, dirty carpet, hard beds, weird air system, lack of space....should I say more. Your better off at motel 6!

                7.8

                The room had a small refrigerator and a microwave. The bathroom was large. And the a/c worked fine. The room was clean and comfortable. I will use this Motel again.

                The motel is older and shows some signs of wear and tear. Some of the repairwork was poorly done. I think this motel woild thrive again if it had a little tlc. Drapes on the window would be a nice inprovement. The vertical blinds were outdated.

              • Couple
                3.8

                The lodge was on our trip. Forniture were very old and rooms had terrible smell. Pool and hot tub were out of order. Wifi didn't work in the room and breakfast were only milk and coffee. Too expensive. Il lodge era sul nostro tragitto ma non ha rispettato quanto promesso. Wifi piscina non disponibili e la colazione era veramente inesistente. Camere vecchissime con condizionatore molto rumoroso, troppo, troppo costoso per quanto offriva.

                The lodge were on our trip beetwen yosemite park and san francisco. It very close to the town of Sonora, a tipical old californian town with a lot of lodges and shops

                Nothing to like everything to hate

                Nothing to like it has not be updated since the 60's I mean everything it was horrible horrible horrible I would never stay there again or refer it to someone one word "update update update"

                bed was perfect. see above. when in the area, I plan to stay again.

                the air conditioner controls were too high and I had to step on a chair to make adjustments. breakfast was not enough variety. need more food.

              • Couple
                3.2

                It was not a comfortable stay. Would not recommend to friends and families. On their web site, i does not mention that the spa and pool are out of order. The room was very dirty, had bed bugs and flies. The bedsheet felt used n dirty on the first night. Second day it was changed. Room was cleaned only 1 day out of the 3 nights we stayed there. Walls are very thin. The only thing good bout the hotel was its location.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Easy to find

                People hard to communicate with. Rooms not ready (late-after dark)

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                staff was friendly.

                old, bed was hard. old furniture. The room was clean, but poor quality.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                it was very quiet and the staff was very nice. The breakfast they provided was good.

                The rooms are severely outdated. Some areas of the room hadn't been dusted in awhile. There were spiders and their webs in corners of the room. My mattress was adequate, but, probably should have been replaced some time ago. The toilet moved when you sat on it-was not secured properly at the base.

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                The location was convenient for our purposes.

                The rooms are in serious need of some refurbishing.
