    « Great place to stay - very good value! »

    We were in the older part but it was a good sized and very clean room. The bed was super comfortable. The shower was hot and powerful. Wi-Fi worked very well. There were complimentary bottles of water. Check in was fast and easy with the very friendly and helpful clerk. Breakfast was a good selection but the room was a bit small, saying that you can sit outside also. There is places to eat close by and freeway access is right there as well. The grounds are very well kept and a very inviting swimming pool is available. No problems for me to stay here again - great place and great price / value!

    I had a very pleasant stay. The room was nice. clean, comfortable and it was as advertised. The staff was friendly and efficient with a quick check in. Everything worked fine in the room and the price was reasonable.

    « Clean, noisy, utilitarian »

    We were only there for one night and didn't specify any needs, but it was definetly on the average end. I understand now that there are two distinct sections--old and new. We were obviously in the old section. Room very small but clean. Our room was almost right on one of the busiest streets in town and was rather noisy. For one night it was doable, but if you plan on a longer stay, request new section and away from street. This motel has been around for many many years and while clean, the section we were in shows it age.

    « Comfortable & Nice Rooms »

    We arrived at about 8pm and the reception lobby was closed and arrival formalities had to be conducted through some sort of security window. I was assured that this was not a high crime area and it certainly did not have an appearance of being so. These arrangements were, however, rather off-putting and out-of-character with this otherwise very nicely designed and well-maintained establishment. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious with a large flatscreen TV. The bathroom was of modest but adequate size but would benefit from an extractor fan to remove moisture. The buffet breakfast was well stocked with the usual selections plus boiled eggs and nice orange juice. We had a problem with the aircon unit but reception said to turn the unit off for 10 minutes and then turn it back on. We did this and it completely solved the problem. I can safely recommend this fairly-priced and well-maintained hotel with good parking and, if you like them, a Chipotle restaurant just nearby.

    « Clean but noisy »

    A/C unit was really noisy. Bed not that great. Noise from upstairs was bizarre. Dont know if it was people or equipment. Was clean and welcoming otherwise. Patio was nice. Would ask for a different room next time.

    « Very Nice Stay »

    I would recommend this motel as we were pleased with our stay. It isn't fancy, but it is nice. Everything from the customer service at the front desk to the complimentary breakfast were good for us. The breakfast was simple but it included some hot foods such as oatmeal and biscuits and gravy, along with yogurt, juices, cold cereal, breads and fruit. The eating area is small but adequate. We will stay at the Pine Tree Motel again if we are in the area.

    « Great place »

    They went above and beyond to get us a better room. Very friendly and helpful staff and a fantastic location. The usual shops close by. Freeway just around the corner. We were here for a wedding about 20 minutes away (with no traffic).

    « Nice comfortable stay »

    Thank goodness the staff member that checked us in noticed that we had come with other family members. She noticed that we had only booked one night while the others had booked three. She quickly fixed that for us, though we still had to move rooms the 2nd night. That was okay, at least we got a room. All the hotels in the area were booked. Only thing was, the 2nd room we had was upstairs and the afternoon sun was shining on it. The heat from the sun was more than the poor small air conditioner could handle. Other than that, it was a very nice room. A bit dated, but clean.

    « Better value elsewhere »

    We had to return to CA for a family emergency and this was close to my in-law's house. The room was OK, noisy air conditioner, but other than that, acceptable. What wasn't acceptable was the breakfast. It was in a tiny room, extremely claustrophobic and the selection was pathetic. The flyer they handed out said "Waffles and Pan Cakes". Well, they were in little bags that you had to microwave, totally inedible for anyone over 8. There are so many places near by, at a similar price, where you can have a real breakfast in a comfortable setting. We will be returning to CA soon, unfortunately, and we will definitely be staying somewhere else.

    « Average place »

    This is an average motel and we were forced to stay here for lack of better choices close by. I was surprised as I expected better since this was a Best Western Staff: They have a very small office and staff at reception did not seem that hospitable. Rooms: Small and just functional. You have to park in front of the room and will also be exposed to noise. Breakfast : This is served in a very small room where literally there is no space to move around. Options are limited. Since we were there just for the night and just needed a place to sleep we did not bother much. As one other reviewer has mentioned, this definitely needs to be renovated. Will not stay again.

    « A true 5/5 Motel....just a wonderful little hidden gem! »

    I stayed here on a personal vacation in late September 2015, but really wanted to promote this excellent property and share the photos from this wonderful stay. So many good things, a few excellent things and not much to complain about. As far as "good" goes, the rooms are very nice for one person perhaps two people. They are well kept, spacious for a budget place and very, very, very clean. Cleanliness can't be undersold because when one stays "budget" there are health and "gross out" related risks that are taken. Not so with the Best Western Pine Tree Motel which is exceedingly well-kept and mostly spotless. Also good is the location which is very close to the 60 freeway onramp preceded by a strip mall with a Starbucks, Jersey Mike's and across the street from a Del Taco (which is right next to the property). "Excellent" would describe the bed, shower, tv, staff, and air conditioning! Considering the age of this place, you would think both might be of lower quality, but the contrary was true. The queen size bed was functional, just firm enough but not too hard with very generous bedding; it was very easy to sleep on and combined with the air conditioner I enjoyed five nights of quality sleep. The bathroom fixtures were "old school" but very well maintained, the water pressure and temperature was "up to snuff" and the shower head was contemporary. Very clean and fluffy (generous) towels as well [budget hotel towels can be a embedded cigarette smoke disaster]. It is located in the Inland Empire and in September it is still quite toasty. No worries, their air conditioning unit pounded in fresh and cold air like a boss! Comfy enough that I could kick back and enjoy my suite of ESPN "happy hour" programming with no sweat! The tv was a flat screen that had all of the necessary channels and was also of excellent quality. Also excellent was the hard working staff which log many long hours; very long shifts but not so long that they effect their attitudes. I was especially pleased with Imelda and Jennifer who alternated during the five nights I stayed. Improvements? You can't change the age of a place and there are some things that would certainly be improved with a newer property.....but then again any massive remodeling would change the charm of this place. Its like a 1960's motel that is still as fresh as it was back when Kennedy was President! The room is small, but you knew that.....right? I don't think a family of four would be super comfy here....I noticed many Gen-X and Baby Boomer blends like me vs. young families or families with teens. Finally, it would be good to always have coffee and some snacks (apples etc.) available for guests, some days there would be no coffee and condiments. Remember, these are nit-picky things that can't be changed and are really what you would consider before even thinking about a motel. Overall, the Best Western Pine Tree Motel is just a wonderful, wonderful place and very worthy of a 5/5. I'm an academic and a notoriously hard graders [see my other reviews] but for what this motel is I believe it is top of the line and very worth your traveling dollars!

    « Chino Best Western »

    Maybe it was just my room, but this location could use a remodel as it's quite dated, I slept well, in a cushy King bed, but room amenities were in poor condition. 1. The closet safe didn't work. The battery for the keypad and lock was dead. 2. The AC unit was mounted in the wall directly above the television, which basically drowned out the television volume. Room was quite toasty upon arrival. 3. Our tub/shower didn't work properly and the hardware was falling off. When I switched from tub faucet to showerhead, the valve would only change halfway, causing both the tub faucet and showerhead to run at the same time. Because the tub faucet ran over the tub drain plug, it caused it to push it down and block drainage, essentially I was showering in a tub of dirty water. 4. My room had its own private patio on the backside of the building, but there was some sort of dirt/gravel lot behind the property and a semi truck was parked there early on Saturday morning that ran idle for quite a while. It was loud and annoying. Privacy was a concern as the driver and/or vagrants would cross our patio to this lot. 5.Maids were on the prowl as early as 8-9AM, so had to place the privacy placard on the door handle when I heard their carts.

    « Perfectly adequate »

    I agree with walker1denmark: It's not a 5* establishment and you don't pay 5* prices. It's a cozy and clean motel located near shops and all the major arterial routes leading east towards Las Vegas, Mojave, Joshua Tree Route 66 etc...... and yet the drive to Hollywood Blvd on a Friday morning only took just over half an hour. The breakfast 'buffet' had a pretty good choice considering..... All in all highly recommended

    « A place, I may return to! »

    I do not quite understand those negative responses found in here. No, it is not a 19-star Hilton, and should not be taken as such. I arrived at 8 pm, about 3 hours later than expected, but I blame that on LA traffic and not the least Homeland Emigration at LAX. I got a room (the booked price, and friendly staff at the reception!) and settled in for the night. One thing that do come to mind is the A/C unit. It is noisy. Not that it came as a surprise. I have not yet seen/heard an individual A/C set that will not wake you up at night. This one, though, had two working fan settings: Off and typhoon! Everything in between seemed to be disabled. I chose Off! Continental breakfast is there from 7 till 10. Dry toast, jelly, raisin toast and juice plus one apple for me. You could have additional things like coffee, oatmeal, but ... I would recommend the raisin toast over the dry one next time!

    « Quiet and cottage like. »

    We stayed in the single story rooms at this Best Western. The room was well kept, it seemed as if they might have updated the room recently. My family like the brick wall behind the beds and the tile in the bathroom. I felt this made the room less noisy since we never did hear anything from the connecting walls. The staff was very friendly and pleasant and there was plenty of parking. We will be staying here again when we have to revisit Chino.

    « Smaller rooms are not bad at all »

    Although My wife and I prefer the larger rooms with the balcony's the smaller Non smoking rooms were nice. This hotel has come along ways over the years. We had a slight problem with the desk clerk loosing our reservation over night. But B/W took care of us the best way they could at the time. Thank Goodness... The Rooms were clean & Comfortable Don't count on a hearty Breakfast , more like a morning snack! Very,very small & limited choices. Right up the road! Yogi's Burgers & breakfast-to-go. Or Sit-down at Denny's right down road!

    « Smoking Room »

    The room I booked was a non smoking room I got put in a smoking room which was nice, however the smell of the cigarette smoke was very bad, the bed sheets had burn holes! The ac was so loud it had to be turned off so I could sleep and the weather was hot! The ceiling fan did not work. Breakfast was good if I had another room it would have been fine but they claimed no non smoking rooms were available.

    « Not Again »

    I hadn't stayed here before but I had business in the area so I though I would give it a try. The Pro's are: the room was clean and ready when I got there. Good internet when it was running. I got dropped many times. Nice TV with a good channel selection. A USA Today newspaper each day was nice. The Con's are: The A/C was terribly loud. Had to turn the volume way up on the TV in order to hear it over the noise of the A/C plus the A/C had trouble keeping up with the heat outside and there were no comfortable nights sleep due to the noise it made. Breakfast was very sad. WAY below BW standards. The only hot food was biscuits & gravy, EVERY day. The breakfast room was soooo small there were only 3 tables in it. There is a small frig in the room that worked OK along with a coffee pot. No microwave though. But the straw that broke the camels back is the fact that when I checked in the clerk told me she had to "scan" my license. I told her I objected to that and explained that if their system got hacked not only would the thief have my credit card info but they would also have a picture clear copy of my drivers license. She told me she couldn't check me in without doing it so I let her. I told her they needed to post this info on their web site. She said she would pass it onto management. I intend to complain to Best Western about this also. No, I won't stay here again nor will I recommend it.

    « A GEM WHERE YOU'D LEAST EXPECT! »

    I've stayed at 5 stars hotels all over the U.S. I know a great hotel when I see one! I was attended an annual birthday party and this is where we booked...boy, were we all impressed!! The rooms are immaculate! They are huge! Best bed I ever slept in! They even provide goose down comforters! Huge clean showers, separate shower areas to get ready in. Free continental breakfast that surpasses all others! I made sure to come back and even got a better room than the first room, same experience! Staff/Owners are awesome! If ever in the area, or just want to get away, come here! You will not be disappointed! Call as far in advance as possible, as this GEM is well-known and at times, very hard to get a room, especially when there are events in town. Also, a huge plus as well, walking distance to all kinds of resturants, bars, etc. LOVE THEM!

    « What can I say... »

    I go to Chino weekly. I have stayed at the hotel 4 times. I love it. The only thing I have a lil issue with is the last two times I went to check in I didnt get to check into the room til after check in. I had added a night on one stay and instead of just keeping me in the same room I had to check out and check back into a different room. The guests before me in that room were quite messy and it took housekeeping longer to clean the room and i didnt get to go on the room til after 5 almost. There were still cleaning rags on the bathroom and the floor was not swept in the bathroom as well. I love staying here and I will continue to stay in this hotel each time I am there and they arent booked like the are always. Staff is awesome and helpful.

    « A quaint best western »

    This place might not look like much on the outside but the rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Decent size too. Having a semi private balcony is also a plus. Decent TV and an alright channel selection. Ac is loud and behind the TV so you have either turn the ac off or turn the TV way up to hear what you're watching. Bed was comfy enough. Shower was kinda small but there was enough hot water. Pool looked clean and nice. Parking lot kinda sucks but there is enough space. I gave 4 out of 5 because I tried to check in at 3 and my room was not ready for another 35 mins. I really enjoyed the quiet. Couldn't hear anyone and no one bothered me and that's what I came for. I would stay again.

    « BW Pine Tree Motel »

    The motel looks quaint and the room was large and clean. I did not like the bed since it was too soft and old and was not firm enough for any orthopaedic support. The breakfast was simply what you would expect from BW. I wish it had more fruit and less sweet pastries and bread.

    « Can't say enough good things »

    I've wanted to stay here for a long time now. Everytime I get the chance they are full. Last night we lucked out and there was an opening. I was not disappointed with my experience. If I could give 100 stars I would! I love the homey touches. The room was very clean, smelled clean, I loved that we had a balcony that we could go out on. I just loved the beams on the ceiling, the tile work in the bathroom was pretty. The grout was clean and the glass shower doors were sparkling. All the plants around the buildings were well cared for and really made the place feel peaceful. The pool area and pool were very clean. When I first saw this place the word "cute"came to mind. Cute is a word I would associate with a bed and breakfast, but this place has changed my mind. I just wish we could have stayed longer. To the owner and staff I must say, WELL DONE! I can't wait to come back.

    « Quiet and Serene »

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel due to the kind staff and clean accommodations. The breakfast was a nice perk. The grounds of the hotel were very tropical looking to me. The decor of the rooms were modern and fresh. I will definitely return in the near future. I almost hesitated on writing a review because it seems like this place is a hidden gem in all areas of service, cleanliness, and comfort.

    Good motel just off Rt 60 in Chino. Convenient to shops, restaurants. Book a King - with patio or balcony. Lots of room, comfortable layout. Breakfast room is small, and offering was adequate. All the staff encountered were very friendly and helpful.

    Great room, Big , Clean and Comfortable and the outside patio right off the room was very nice feature. The bed was exceptional - I totally loved it! Having a fridge and coffee maker was another selling point for me as well.. Plenty of places to eat close by. Easy access to freeway was another good feature. Nicely landsacped and quiet. Totally enjoyed my stay and I will be back.

    « Not your cookie cutter Motel »

    I travel frequently to the Los Angeles metro area and have found many of the Best Westerns in the city are similar in decor and design. They are fine. However ,this motel is a pleasant change. The rooms are spacious and have a lot of character. My room had a brick wall (can't remember the last time I saw that) which really cut down on the noise from outside. The bathroom was a little retro in design which I admired. The rates were about half of what I pay close to downtown LA or the airport. Chino is a charming and quiet town. Worth a look.

    Nice and comfortable stay. Good for 1 night stay. The breakfast room was pretty small. The staff was nice and friendly. Over all basic hotel. Meets all expectations according to its class. Open pool area is nice. We liked how they have nice Palm trees around the property. Located in very accessible area where there are few plazas around it.

    « If you stay in building 2 or 3 you will be satified with your stay. »

    We booked with Orbitz and when we arrived the room was not exactly as shown on the website. Building one where most of the 2 queen beds is located is away from the more tropical settings of the other rooms. The motel mostly offers a room with a single queen or single king but are fairly larger than the one we stayed in in building one. We tried to change rooms but Orbitz would not credit back the charge to upgrade to a larger room. Had to wait up to 5 days to be credited back. So basically had to take the room we booked with Orbitz. Ask for a room with king and get roll a way bed if you need to. Be sure the room also has a balcony to enjoy the tropical setting and you can open the sliding doors for fresh air. Breakfast included biscuits and gravy and oatmeal for hot items. Then typical continental breakfast food. Skip using Orbitz as third party to book a room!

    « Very nice quick stay »

    My husband and I spent one night here to shorten our drive time. It is an older motel, but has been remodeled. We were able to park right outside our room which was nice. We had a king room that was clean and comfortable. The bed was too firm for our liking, but the sheets and pillows were all in good condition. There was a desk, chair, and refrigerator in the room also. The pictures on the wall were all of historic places around the area, which I liked. The bathroom had a window and when opened gave a nice cross breeze through the room. It was also clean and the towels were nice and fluffy. They do offer breakfast, there were biscuits and gravy, toaster waffles and pancakes, hard boiled eggs, pastries, and oatmeal available. They had coffee, tea, milk, OJ and apple juice to drink. The room where it is served is small, but there are a couple tables outside where you can sit too. The staff we encountered were nice and helpful. We would stay here again when passing through.

    Good clean comfortable accommodation - nothing pretentious just good value for money. This was a solo trip going to a local air show. It provided me with all I needed, a comfortable bed and a good shower with OK restaurants nearby. Basic complimentary breakfast included but I was up too early to benefit from I!

    The staff was nice, the room was pleasant and the breakfast was good. The only downfall is the continuous need to sign into the Internet if you don't continuously use your device. Also recommend avoiding the restaurant across the street, food was awful. We did like Dickeys.

    « Reasonably priced above average motel in Chino »

    Location Hotel is located on the central avenue in Chino, which is an area south of the mountains, full of large US parking lots with variety of shops & fast food restaurants. There is a taco place nearby, CVS pharmacy, food market across the road etc. The main freeways of Intetstate 10 & route 60 are 5 min drive to hotel. Downtown LA is over an hour drive away with LAX & the beach 1.5 hrs drive. Mt. Baldy is about 45 minutes away. Room My ground level room offered a direct car parking space outside which was most convenient. Inside a compact room was presented very clean, decor of a brick wall behind the beds & white paint colours which had a warm cosy ranch motel feel. Two large comfortable, expect soft, double beds with a bedside table in the middle that had an alarm clock & lamp in the centre, with one side of the beds offering two plug sockets. The other had a built in AC/heating unit which was less than a foot away from the bed- this was a bit too close. Large windows that had white black out blinds was also next to this bed. Two random chairs are offered in the room in odd positions but only where space allowed since a large desk, plus large unit of drawers & medium size fridge is offered below a decent size Samsung TV that faces the beds. The TV offered well over 60 channels of a decent typical premium cable selection. The desk had a phone, lamp & small coffee machine, no tea so really only desirable for coffee lovers since it's the filter kind. The hall way to the bathroom offered a wardrobe with two portable luggage racks, iron & board plus an easy to use safe suitable for a 13' laptop & tablets. The bathroom was quite poky, small but nonetheless clean with bath/shower combo, amenities were slim offering only mini bottle shampoo & soap, plus a soap face bar. There were some old ceiling heat lamps with a timer on the side- quite unique. Overall the room is OK functional clean better than your average motel and they offer two complimentary water bottles. Facilities There was free secure wifi that worked well with multiple devices. Catering facilities included some vending machines outside and there is a small room that offered complimentary breakfast which consists of cereals and breads etc, it was ok but very small bagels. You are not allowed to take to rooms as signage says so strongly. Leisure facilities included a swimming pool open from 9am-9pm. Parking is also free. Staff There was very much minimal interaction from staff as i arrived late and had to deal through a blacked out window like at the bank, this is because the office closes after dusk. Staff was friendly enough and explained clearly some local food options in the area at 11pm. Overall the motel was above average and reasonably priced under $100. Room was comfortable and functional with decent enough WIFI, jus bathroom amenities were poor.

    « Worst experience ever! »

    To start the man in the front desk named Alfredo was super rude. I felt a sense of discrimination coming from him. Once in the room the tub was peeling and was forced to fish for dried paint! Unfortunately I didn't take pictures but I do remember the room number I stayed in which was 235. First and last time I stay at this place! I would've been better off staying at the motel 6 not far from here!

    Very clean, large room with nice amenities. Friendly accommodating staff. I just went there to have a quiet night and that is what I got. I used the quiet time to put together my grandchildren's Easter Baskets and I needed scissors and tape which the front desk was happy to loan me.

    « Best Western Pine Tree Motel »

    Had a very nice one-day stay here back in February. Pilar, the front desk clerk, was very cheerful and helpful at check in. The motel is in a very convenient location, just a 10-minute drive from Chino airport where I was doing some flight training. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet and there was adequate closet and dresser space. In addition, the room had a small refrigerator. Check out was very efficient and the room rate was reasonable. In addition, there's a Starbucks within walking distance of the motel and a grocery store across the street from the motel. The only complaint I had, which I pointed out in a Best Western survey, was the bathroom sink had caulk peeling along the rim and sink drain didn't work. Overall, it was a nice place to stay and would stay here again.

    « Great for Budget Travelers! »

    This "motel" doesn't seems too bad, in my point of view, at least. And honestly, as long as the place is clean, has free parking and free wifi -- that is a bonus for me already, especially when it comes to traveling. However, there were some downsides that I encountered. I interacted with two different front desk women who did not check my ID because my room key got deactivated or when I needed to add my boyfriend's name on the account. They just asked for my room, and that's it -- which is horrible because that means anyone can come in and out the front desk and just need a room key without providing some sort of proof that it is the person who is on the reservation. The front desk need to be retrained in regards to the guests' safety concern. I know that not a lot of people may care about this because it seems to be minor but trust me, if one day, this sort of thing happen because the front desk was too "lazy" to ask for an ID, it will be all bad. Also, the front desk needs to tell their guest some important information such as the wifi (I had to figure it out myself and realized that the guy who checked me in, wrote it on the key card sleeves) and as for breakfast, he didn't even bother telling me about it till I notice the sign in my room. Sometimes letting the guest know is a good thing. Sad to say, even though the wifi was free, I was constantly being asked to log back in -- it was very annoying because I have to log back in, almost every hour and sometimes I would get kicked out from it. Also, the room needs more outlets, there were only 4 (one in the bathroom, one under the desk, and two under the A/C unit) and they were not that convenient -- I would suggest updating the lamps and replace them with lamps that comes with outlets (I've seen them at other hotels and they are very useful). I felt confused with their breakfast because there is a sign, saying that you cannot take the food with you, so you have to consume your breakfast in this tiny room that has about 4 tables -- that's it. I mean, so if all the tables are taken, does that mean I have to stand there and eat my breakfast? That didn't seem fair to me because I've been to other hotels, and they seem fine if we can take the breakfast into our room. The location is pretty far but as long as you don't mind driving, and get away from the LA lifestyle, this place is pretty good, considering how the freeway is just down the block. It is also surrounded with lots of shops and plazas. Overall, the trip wasn't too bad -- free parking, free wifi, BIG screen LED TV with lots of channels, pretty decent size fridge and free breakfast. I would come back here if the price is right.

    « Budget oasis in Chino »

    I am so glad we stayed at this motel! We were visiting the Claremont Colleges, and this was about 15 minutes away by car. I am extremely noise sensitive, and requested a quiet room. We were put in the far back, second floor, and were very pleased with our room. Frankly, we were a bit more comfortable than in the fancy Hilton in Pasadena, where we'd been the night before at a conference. Our room had a balcony and a window we could open. I gave it 5 stars in the context of its being a budget motel. It was not fancy, but it was absolutely fine, and I would stay there again. I will say that while I had no issue with noise, I did notice that when we were up early, I heard a guy on the balcony next door on his cell phone, and his voice traveled. We never had an issue with noise while we were sleeping, and that was the only time I noticed how much sound travels. I suppose with a noisy neighbor it could be troublesome. It was not an issue during this stay. Our room had two queens, and was very large. The grounds were well tended, and were lush compared to the rest of the neighborhood. Lots of trees and greenery. The whole place felt cozy. The staff were friendly. I didn't take off a star for this because the rest of the stay was great, but I will say: the breakfast was pretty disappointing. The hard boiled eggs were in a refrigerator that was barely cool (happily I didn't get sick!), and there was not a lot in the way of fresh fruit. Because I liked our room so much, I didn't get too worked up about it. But they would do well to bring some freshness to the breakfast. Overall, I just loved the environment, and how close it was to our destination. This was an excellent choice for a budget motel.

    « what time is breakfast?? »

    Great location, great price, clean place, nice people. what's not to like? I don't think it is that difficult to let your guests know what time the breakfast is. We arrived and were told 6 till 10. Sign on door said 7 till 10. One sign in breakfast room said 6 till 10 and another sign about 15' away said 7 till 10. When you are planning an early departure it is good to know. Manager please take a look and train your staff. Other than that you have a great place.

    « Bottom half of Best Western Hotel Range »

    The air conditioner made an astonishing amount of noise, but did not cool down the room (and yes, I did have it set properly). The bath tub faucet had a fast drip and the tub itself had very unsightly flaked-off coating. Dim lighting. Refrigerator did not have any sort of freezer section. The bed, on the other hand, was very comfortable.

    « Bait & Switch »

    I booked two Non-Smoking rooms and had the printed/written confirmation with me. They said I had to accept one Non-Smoking room and one SMOKING room, because they were all sold out of Non-Smoking rooms. (I had reserved the Non-Smoking rooms weeks in advance.) The Smoking room was so pungent that it about knocked us over when we opened the door. The guests in that room were miserable all night. This practice is unacceptable and even though the facility was fairly nice, otherwise, I cannot recommend this hotel or Best Western to anyone.

    Stayed here a couple of times. All was ok. Rooms are clean and with sufficient space. Friendly staff. Property is well maintained. For business it would be an ok stay and for me a revisit worthy. Restaurants, Starbucks, gas and interstate are close by.

    « Great Value!! »

    Very nice hotel, great grounds with a small but super clean swimming pool. Check in was a breeze. Our room was huge (2nd story) and warm and inviting. We had a smallish balcony. The bathroom was good with hot, powerful shower. Breakfast was awesome - so many choices in a small area - even biscuits and sausage gravy that tasted really great! The TV was a big flat screen. Even though the main road (Central) is right there our room was totally quiet. Internet connection (Wi-Fi) was strong. We got 2 bottles of complimentary water in the room. Check out was super easy! There are many eating options nearby. No complaints at all and we will for sure stay here again if we are back in the area and need a room again!!!

    « Super Little Motel - As Good As Last Time »

    Great little motel. The rooms are small (we had a queen) but they squeeze in two chairs and a desk with chair. The wall the TV is against is painted brick and I love the texture and depth it gives the room. The TV is huge for the room, probably 55? and is set on top of a cabinet that holds the refrigerator. There is no microwave and no space for one either. The internet was very good but it was difficult finding places to charge electronics when you weren't sitting at the desk (my spouse used the desk). The bed was very high and I had to slide down to get my feet on the floor. It was very comfortable but I would have preferred the covers to have had more substance as they were quite flimsy. It got cold during the night and we weren't running the heater so a little extra weight to the covers would have been perfect. The bathroom was small but there was enough counter space because they had a banjo counter. The tiles were a fun, funky bright orange and beige. The sink was new and everything was nice and clean. I also like that there is a working window in the bathroom. The tub emptied very slowly in our room. Breakfast is advertised as continental but they include sausage gravy and biscuits. There is hot oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar to mix in as well as instant oatmeal packages. There are plenty of bread choices including some of the best raisin bread I have ever eaten. It was sliced thick and chock full of raisins. They have bottled OJ instead of a machine which is wonderful because I find the mix in so many of the machines have too much water. It was such a pleasure having good OJ. It is in a very small room (converted guest room) with three tables and a counter with three stools - not much space but it seems to work. I have stayed here before and this recent stay was as pleasant as the last. The prices are also excellent.

    « Perfect Price and a Great Location »

    When ever I fly into Southern California, I almost always fly into Ontario. I usually arrive late and don't really feel like driving very far. This little motel is exactly what I needed. It's clean, located within a block of the 60 in a quiet, yet populated area (there are a bunch of shopping centers and strip malls). My sister and I arrived late, and the lady on the night desk was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic, but that was what we needed. The room was clean, and the bedroom area had recently been updated. I really appreciated the fact that there was NO smoke smell. Too often while staying in motels, you can tell that someone didn't follow the No Smoking rule, and so the place smells funky, but not here.

    « Slightly above the average »

    We stayed here for one night in December. We arrived late in the night and were happily greeted. The room was spacious, but had a weak front door which was little scary. Also there was an inside door to the next motel room. That door was weak as well and did not even block the TV noise. Good thing we had neighbors who went to sleep early as did we. The bed was comfortable and we fell sleep easily. In the morning we had the breakfast which was good, even though a little small. All in all, a fairly good stay.

    « Quaint Hotel in the Middle of the City »

    This hotel is relatively small, but has a cute, quaint appearance in the middle of a bustling city. We had a room with one queen bed. The room was very spacious and clean. It must be an older Best Western hotel, since the bathroom area was an "all in one", with the shower/tub, sink, toilet in one room (which was not a problem). The only downside was that the complimentary breakfast hours did not start until 7 a.m., which can be troublesome for business travelers who have early meetings or any traveler who wants to get an early start on their drive.

    « Great motel for the price!!! »

    My boyfriend and I booked this motel for our trip to a friend's wedding and Disneyland. The wedding was the day after Thanksgiving, so a busy weekend for hotels, but we were still able to book the rooms about a month and a half out at a very good price. As AAA members, we got their rate which was only $56/night...which for Thanksgiving weekend is practically unheard of! I read lots of good reviews before we booked, so I knew this was going to be a good one. The location was convenient for us, as the wedding was 10 mins away in Pomona, and it was only about a 30 min drive to Disneyland. The motel is located very close to Starbucks, CVS, grocery stores, restaurants, freeways etc. We checked in after 9 and it was no problem at all, and our room was more than ample for the price we paid! The room was not huge, but for just 2 people who weren't even at the room much, we didn't need anything bigger. We were in the long 1-story building so we didn't have a patio, but for the price I can't complain about that. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was a good size, the TV was great, they have free Wifi, a mini fridge in-room, and I really liked the continental breakfast! Biscuits, gravy, mini pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, pastries...really not bad for a free breakfast. Definitely took advantage of it both days we were there! The pool looked nice, but it was too cold to swim (and no hot tub). My only complaint was that it took a while to get an extra blanket for our bed. The first night was a bit chilly, and I called the front desk first thing in the morning to ask for an extra blanket. I called again at around 12pm, as we still hadn't received an extra blanket. By 4pm, one STILL hadn't come, so I tracked down one of the housekeepers and got one directly from her. Not the biggest deal, just kind of annoying. I don't find myself in this area often and when I am I usually stay with family or friends, but should we have the need to stay in a hotel in this area again, we would definitely be happy to come back to the Best Western Pine Tree Motel!

    « Put a smile on our faces »

    Booked this motel due it's proximity to the Fairplex in Pomona. Ours was a one night stay before heading to Las Vegas the next morning. Older facility brought up to modern amenities without losing it's charm and character. Well maintained and very nicely landscaped, my wife and I both immediately thought of those old Elvis Presley spring break movies as soon as we pulled in and we mean that as a compliment. Very helpful staff. Anything you need within a few blocks. Would definitely stay here again.

    I decided for this hotel because we were 40 minutes away from a wedding we attended and close to my family. It was a very nice motel. The beds are very firm which my husband favors. Our room was close to the breakfast room. Very small room for eating at. I think my one complaint is the bathroom shower was difficult to put at the right temperature.

    Very clean, great water pressure, air and heat both work. The hotel grounds remind me of Hawaii because of all the palm trees. Has a tropical feel to it.

Hotel staff are respectful and helpful

    « Rustic resort charm! »

    We enjoyed our stay here in summer so much that we just had to return for another stay! Wonderful and clean rooms with ample amenities - terrific value. Especially if you are like us who fancy the rustic resort charm that this Best Western hotel offers, it feels like a country getaway almost. The swimming pool while not huge, it's a lovely little space to chill out by the pool. Breakfast was very basic and certainly can be improved on, but our expectations were not high on breakfast anyhow.

    « Very big rooms »

    Pros: room was very spacious, lots of cabinet space, lots of counter space in the bathroom and hallway, full length mirrors, plastic bag to put your laundry, quiet, parking included, the hard boiled eggs during the free breakfast were real hard boiled eggs not the kind from a bag and they were just made and still hot Cons: customer service isn't the best (when we called to check out, the person just said "ok bye" instead of saying something like "thank you for staying with us") hard to see room numbers if checking in at night (had to go to general area we were told to go to, park and look to see if we parked near our room number), the room keys did not work when we initially tried them so we had to go back to the front desk in the cold night, pillows were bumpy and not soft Overall it was a pleasant stay for the price, and I would recommend. The location was great (not a far drive to disneyland, etc.)

    The room was small, but easy to move around in. The beds were comfortable, and I was able to make the desk chair higher so that I could sit with proper body position while I typed a long document. There were lots of options for a good breakfast, all good except that fresh Danish would be better than pre-packaged. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Overall, our stay was pleasant and comfortable for a very reasonable price.

    Since I work very early, I didn't appreciate having to wait outside the breakfast room for the lady to open late (after 6:00 AM)...it was cold and one day I waited up to 6:10 AM until one guest went a complaint at the front desk (he was leaving to the airport and wanted to have something to eat first)

    « Simple overnight spot »

    We had business at the Chino Airport so we booked based on Trip Advisor. It was a bit further away than we thought especially during rush hour. My first thought upon driving up to the check-in awning area was of road trips with my parents in the 1970s. Very much of a motor inn type feeling. Staff was pleasant at check-in. Our room was in one of the two story buildings at the very end of the property which was nice. The room was quite warm and stuffy so we immediately turned on the very loud air conditioning unit. Took a while for it to cool off. It was too warm outside to leave the sliding glass door open to the little deck area and the a/c was quite loud for sleeping. Bed was very comfortable and the room was clean which is what is most important. This place is fine for a night while passing through.

    « Don't let the outdated decor scare you off!! »

    I kind of can't say enough nice things about this hotel. It was so affordable, close to so much, and the service from the staff was really top notch. I haven't ever had the need to stay in Chino before and I'm not sure how often I will in the future, but when I do, I will 100% be staying here. Before arrival, I was a little concerned with staying in a "motel" where the room doors go directly outside - it doesn't feel super safe to me. However, I felt safe and secure here. The neighborhood is busy with shops like Albertsons, Smart & Final, and a pet supply store, as well as tons of places to eat. The rooms were set back from the road enough and the property had tons of trees so it wasn't like the doors were screaming to passers-by "Open me!!" I loved that there was always parking and it was shady too, since it was pretty toasty this weekend. Things being so close meant we didn't have to drive to get lunch or run to the store, everything was a super short walk away. The room: yeah, it looks pretty 70's. The bathrooms are VERY orange but the counter space to get ready as a lady was amazing and the shower was spacious with a nice new showerhead. The water pressure was great and the water got very hot. From pictures and the room description, I didn't think there would be a fridge and microwave, but to my surprise, there were both! Very exciting. The room was really spacious and the air conditioning worked great. I enjoyed having the little deck out the sliding door and being on the ground floor, we had chairs and a little lounge thing out there. The room was clean and mostly quiet. One night, I could definitely hear folks upstairs making a ruckus pretty late. I almost called the front desk but didn't, so no fault of the hotel on that. Continental breakfast was good! I was expecting only cereal and fruit like reviews said but there was oatmeal, hot biscuits and gravy, and some microwaveable waffles and pancakes (that admittedly my boyfriend said were terrible but you might like 'em, I don't know). They also had hard boiled eggs which are like my favorite breakfast ever so thanks Best Western!! Overall, so happy with this place. Checking in at almost 3am was a breeze, checking out (a llittle late too) was just as easy, and asking for toiletries I'd forgotten or a couple fresh towels was always met with kindness.

    « Just the BW quality what I'd expected! »

    After a long haul from Europe we took purposely this hotel as an alternative way to a bit more expensive hotels located closer to West of LA. However, the hotel was chosen also to be in the middle of Greater LA for the trips Eastbound from LA (Yoshua Tree NP, Palm Springs). I always prefer Best Westerns somehow and this one has met definitively my overall expectations once again. Nice room, various amenities including outdoor sort-of private pool, pretty decent neighborhood with various businesses and services around. But of course, very suitable if you do have a plan to spend some time+money at the Ontario Mills Outlet, which is like 10 minutes away. And btw.: perfect breakfasts they have!

    We took a family vacation to LA and didn't want to stay in a cheap dump in LA. We were about 45 minutes from LA. Our hotel was clean, quiet comfy beds . Very cute and rustic looking. They have a continental breakfast, not much to choose from but still happy we had the free breakfast. They have patio chairs and lounge chairs on the patios which we loved. The separate area to do make up from the bathroom was a plus. Grocery store, dollar tree, restaurant directly across the street. Highly recommend if looking for an affordable and clean place to stay. We stayed in a patio, pool view room on the 1st floor. Will definitely stay there again
