The stay at El Castell Motel was excellent! Room as more spacious than I anticipated, very clean, free wifi and breakfast. The only reason this did not receive five starts were the room furniture is a bit outdated (but clean), was sufficient parking but it was cramped, breakfast was okay.

Rooms were spotless and cozy. Breakfast was delicious! Parking is a bit tight but extra parking on side street. Heard a lot of banging from neighbors but not a big bothersome. Staff was friendly.

Stayed here 4 nights with my wife & 2 young boys. We had the continental breakfast every morning & used the pool once. The wifi here was great, probably the best I've had at a hotel/motel. Some nights we were streaming on 2 or 3 devices with no problem. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. We were out and about...

I celebrated my 52nd birthday on the 12th of March. The hotel was okay. I understand prices can be pretty high in this area; however, $100 plus a night, you expect more than Eggo waffles and coffee that taste like old cigarette ashes. But to be fair, the room was okay. The walls were a bit thin with a family...
