Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The city of Maricopa is a (jumping off) point to other areas. It has no redeeming qualities or attributes for anyone to visit. So this Motel 8 is just an over-night stay for most people. The only real store in the city is a Shell Fuel Station. Motel 8 does not need to be fancy or over-comfortable . . . just get people rested thru the night.

What a Treasure Oasis!
What a treasure: Located at one entrance to the Carrizo National Monument that leads to remote Soda Lake and the San Andreas Fault earthquake line! In the midst of a 2-block town with this lone motel, one diner (Tina’s that closed at 2 PM but super-nice owner offered to deliver food after-hours)+one Shell gas/convenience-store station, Motel 8 is an oasis for off-the-beaten-path travelers. Awesomely clean; comfy; with a clear-water swimming pool; view of the plains+registered visitor laundry! Very relaxing and I felt very safe in the midst of, well, nowhere. Super thoughtful/personable on-site owner+staff. Worth the detour for me from I-5 and town of Taft.

Bad shape and lots of flies
The motel is in bad shape. First we were put in a former smoker room which smelled accordingly and had a lot of flies inside. The manager was very friendly, understanding and without hesitation gave us a different room. The new room also had a lot of flies inside. The entire place is greatly outdated had is waaaay beyond its prime.
