This Hyland Motel is an old Route 66-type motel centrally located in the community near great stores, churches, and restaurants. It is also close enough to the freeway to make it a relatively stress-free stay away from major tourist attractions. The rooms have been updated and the ownership is continuing to complete the renovation.
They do things oddly, like billing up front (which contrary to one review is a semi-standard practice among mom&pop motels) and making a big deal about damage to the room. They also have two micro-rooms in the back that you will read about in some reviews, and you might want to avoid those. But it is safe, quiet, and comfortable.
Location was great. The room came with a kitchenette which was nice. Clean rooms/bathroom. I like this hotel. The only gripes I have are the air condition is loud, the phone in the room did not work (no dial tone), and when checking in there was nobody at the front desk. Probably waited 5 mins or so. Overall will stay here again if need to.
I could have stayed in a hotel in Brea closer to where I was working, but the Fullerton Holiday Inn was very convenient to the freeway, was in nice condition (appeared to be recently updated), and had a lot of restaurants and stores close by. The only slight negative was it seemed they used a lot of fragrance in the room - possibly to cover any remaining old smell of cig smoke? I got used to it and it wasn't totally unpleasant, but if you're sensitive to scent...
