Very good 8.0
Great family run hotel - clean, safe and quiet!
The Wagon Wheel was great! The room was nice, and recently updated, heat and A/C were great and the amenities were what we expected at the price. We phoned ahead to let them know we were coming in late - the person we spoke to seemed a little irked we were going to be there past 12 midnight - not our fault there was traffic delays due to a brushfire - but she said she would wake up when we came in. She took pity on us it seems. When we did arrive around 1AM, the fellow that helped us was curt and to the point, but I guesshe had to be awake to help. He was fast and efficient. The person at checkout was great! She was very friendly and cheerful and made up for the late night arrival experience.

Service dogs are not allowed without paperwork
They did not allow me to stay there since I had a service dog with me. They demanded I show the dogs “paperwork”.

Nice room, but unsavory area
The room was nice, comfy. My only complaint was the homeless congregating in the parking lot next door. Felt a bit uneasy about my car being safe...

A decent place to stay for the short term....
Wagon Wheel Motel was fine for what I was getting. It was convienent for being so near Hwy 101. Also, I had pretty decent wifi connection so I could use my laptop in the room. The bed was very comfortable (if you like the soft, sink-in feeling). The shower/bath was ok, though the water didn't come out very much, just enough for the shower part. I was grateful for the small refrig and microwave (though I didn't use the micro). However, there is no clock in the room or a box of kleenex available. Otherwise, I really don't have too much to complain about the place.
