I think i got your attention...LOL!! I am referring to the manager who checked us in. She was so funny, talkative, and kind. Most of the time at other motels they are not too friendly, just want to get you checked in and that's it. The room was clean and comfortable, it actually looked new. Hot water lasted through 3...

We have stayed at the Friendly Hills Inn on numerous occasions and will stay there again this summer. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The owners are very friendly. The location is great because it is close to shopping areas and restaurants.

The motel is conveniently located to downtown Whittier, Whittier College and close to major highways. The staff is very helpful in recommending places to eat, and directions to nearby places of interest. They accommodated my early check in, the rooms were spotless, clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is the perfect, reasonable, clean place to stay. I will...

I needed a hotel in Whittier because I was attending my brother's funeral service. I booked this hotel because of the reviews but was very disappointed. Our room had an odor and the longer we sat in the room, the more unbearable it became so we decided to look under the bed to see if the odor was coming from...

This looks like your average older motel from the outside but the rooms are newly renovated and pleasant. On the small side but adequate. Basic amenities, no breakfast. Lots of places to eat nearby especially if you travel into downtown Whittier. Fine for the price.

Room was clean and larger than I expected. Wish the bed was a little softer but would come here again. Great value. No issues. Quiet and was a secure facility. So glad we found this place. I can recommend this hotel with no reservations at all.

The room was small but nicely renovated, very clean. The staff was friendly. The price & location worked well for me. And as a solo female traveler, I felt safe which is very important. I would stay here again.

Very clean and quiet rooms. Can walk to Starbucks. I tried Uber but no one ever showed up so i called a cab--very prompt cab service. Staff very friendly and responsive to requests. Good value for the area. Close to shopping, medical resources and restaurants.

The staff was truly friendly and accommodating. This is a very small hotel in a really quiet community. Yes this hotel is clean. You don't have the amenities of the larger chains but you also don't have the hustle and bustle and noise. You will be very close to any type shops or stores needed. Near lots of restaurants. I...

Property is clean and well maintained. Room was clean and comfortable, only things lacking were a "luggage rack" to get suitcase up and off the floor and a channel guide for the TV. Separate coffee service in the office area would have been nice.

“Guide button on TV remote did not work, but pressing menu and selecting channel brought up list of active channels. Local cable company (Charter Cable) says they are unable to get guide to work with multiple "boxes" on a single cable feed.”

“Our room was in a building separate from the office. Newly renovated, but rather Spartan. Don't look for drawers....there are only shelves. Bathroom and vanity area are both a little cramped, but overall, the accommodations were fairly comfortable, and more importantly, CLEAN! We would stay here again.”
