Thank you for your recent stay at our property. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay here at our motel. We are the hub to Death Valley, Las Vegas, Reno, Bakersfield, Sequoia National Park. Plus, we have China Lake Naval Air Weapon Section here. We do charge more that a lot of hotels/motels because of the guest traffic. We have many days a week that the town is sold out. We are planning to remodel all our rooms soon. It was supposed to be this year, but, Management is still working with our corporate owner. We hope to see you in the future. Sincerely, Theresa Front Desk
