The second star was strictly for location; otherwise, a definite 1 star.
A journey back in time, to the days of teensy-tiny rooms and air conditioning that sounded like a fright train. Room was maybe 144 sq ft, possibly less. The front part of the motel looked good, with private balconies, but we were relegated to a room in the back, right out of 1968. Perhaps this was because we had dogs, but still, the room was a joke. Positives included great water pressure in shower, but the shower took twenty minutes to drain.. ick. Location was outstanding, close to many restaurants in downtown Davis and a dog park where we took our critters, However, the room was not only small, but dilapidated, with worn furniture and carpet stains. Small TV. Nice-sized fridge. Keurig ok, but coffee provided was tasteless except for the cardboard taste of the cups. Didn’t use microwave. Theft-proof hangers — seriously, who is going to steal hangers? I found this demeaning. A/c is an absolute necessity in Davis in the summer, and ours was basically unusable. With it on, we had to shout to hear each other speak, and forget watchingTV or making phone calls. After five hours of driving, peace and quiet would have been nice. Instead we were beamed into a fairly ratty past. less

Thank you for your feedback and sharing your opinions. We aren't able to change the size of our rooms but we do have many larger rooms available at our property. All rooms have a microwave, mini refrigerator and Keurig coffee maker and we do have a few different flavors. We have also started installing new carpet throughout. Guest feedback is always important and appreciated as it helps us improve.
