In the spare of the moment, we decided to drive to Long Beach to tour the Queen Mary, however, the ship hotel was fully booked and the prices of close by hotels were way above our budget. So... on Priceline we booked the cheapest motel we could. Here are 5 good things about the Bartlett. 1. Price - Cheapest motel ($20 dollars cheaper per night than Motel 6) within a decent driving distance. 2. Location - less than a 30-minute drive on Pacific Coast Hwy to the Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific. AND the area where the motel is decent, AND walking distance (2 blocks or less) to at least10 good restaurants (Asian, Steak, Mexican, noodle houses, Gourmet Pizza) and Rolling Hills Mall with an AMC 20. 3. The Barlett is a small single-story building so there is no one above you, the rooms are away from the road so there is little road noise and the walls don't seem to be paper thin. We had quiet two night stay. 4. You can park your car right in front of your room. 5. The Barlett has been renovated and the bathroom was pleasantly nice. The vanity had a medium/large counter area and the shower was big and had great water pressure. Had to wait a bit for the very hot water. Also, the towels were almost soft and very clean. 6. The bed it's self was comfortable enough for a good nights sleep, even if it looked like a bed you may have personally thrown it out a year ago if it were your bed. 7. Our room (can't speak to the others) had been renovated at some point and actually seemed cleaner and less seedy than other 1- star motels. The floor was a nice tile, so no nasty carpet. P.S. There were a frig and microwave in the room, but no coffee pot. OK, here are the 5 reasons you might pass this one up. 1. There is no closet, no dresser, no suitcase rack, no hooks in the room or bathroom, no place to hang your clothes or even one item. 2. The mattress cover and the sheets, while clean, were for a full- size bed on our queen size bed. We woke up directly on the mattress (ugh) because the sheets didn't stay in place. 3. The TV is mounted on the wall, head high, right in the only walking path to the bathroom. You're constantly dodging a head injury. In my case, not so successfully. 4. There is no phone in the room to call the front desk/office. So if you need something or have questions you have to walk down. 5. Like the other motels we have stayed at that are owned/operated by (hard working) people from a 3rd world country, they do not understand the American standard. Case in point - when we got to our room the toilet paper roll was almost empty, so I looked around for the new roll - none. I had to walk down to ask for T.P. I understand that they operate on a very tight budget, but come on, one full roll of toilet paper won't break the budget. Second case in point. When I walked to the office for my roll of toilet paper I asked if there was maid service and the man said there was so I requested it. When we got back the maid had not made our bed (I guess trying to stretch the mattress cover and sheets across the bed proved too much for her/him) but she/he did leave clean new towels and an unflushed BM in the toilet. Would I recommend staying here, well yes, if you're a hearty soul, the accomadations were not too bad. If the service would get up to American standards they would do much better.…
卫生条件很差,很脏,很旧。 裂缝,灰尘,而且有难闻的味道。 不值这个价钱。 淋浴的地方特别的不舒服。 家具很旧,电视很老,灰尘来自交流,不要将其打开（打开窗户更好）。 只在这里住一个晚上和一个用于下切换到另一个。
