The place is quite well shielded by trees, though not enough to prevent north-facing rooms enjoying long distance views towards the Calico Mountains. There are plenty of shops and restaurants close by. The motel has an outdoor pool and is enclosed by a decent-sized parking area, including a few long-vehicle spaces.
