Older location. While Freeway Access is directly across the street no traffic noise as you sleep. Loved the HARD beds...best sleep in quite some time. My room had a fridge and microwave as well. I enjoy the individuality of a NON chain hotel. You get to know the people and help with local economics instead of the hustle and bustle...

stayed there for 1 Friday night back in July for the Vista BBQ Classic and was very disappointed. But we needed a place to stay. $ 175.00 for 1 night!! Not what it looked like on the pictures. I should have walked back down to the office and asked for our money back after we upstairs and saw our room....

Vista Inn is very close to our children's home, and the price was reasonable. The beds and pillows were hard! Management was nice and helpful. One of the guests let me know that adult movies are free, you just have to ask at the front desk, but they don't volunteer that... Clientele ranged from people stopping for the night to...

The room was "non-smoking", but still reeked of cigarette smoke the entire time I was there, which was 4 nights. The bed was okay. The shower was okay. If you ask, they won't bother to clean your room during your stay, and that's what I do as I don't need a newly made-up room every day. For the price, this...

Room was filthy. Service was awful, lady at front was rude. Manager called several times after turning key in to see if we took blankets and pillows from room. In which, we didn't. It took about two weeks to receive deposit refund back. Please trust me this motel was awful.

This guest Cynthia stayed at our motel on June 13 2014. They stole our blanket and pillow and a large bath towel from our motel. We held the 10 dollar security deposit of that. Cynthia called us a couple of weeks later and threatened to write a bad review if we did not refund the security deposit. We refunded the...

We stayed here because we were participating in the early morning Strawberry Festival Run which was only a five minute drive away. Super great deal from expedia, even the manager mentioned that our advance purchase saved us nearly $100. Our room was 103 & our friends room 102 faced the parking lot and were downstairs. The AC worked great, well...

Great place for the price. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff was courteous and friendly. I called them for extra towels to clean up a mess I made and they were quick and very responsive.
