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.
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.
We stayed for three nights while attending an event in La Habra. This is just a basic motel (we had to ask for an iron and ironing board but they brought it promptly). So there are no frills when it comes to breakfast or anything like that. But the room was incredibly clean and the staff friendly. At first, we thought it looked sort of "old," mostly because of the bed cover, but upon further inspection realized that a lot of important things had been updated - new, comfy mattress, stone in bathroom, and a flatscreen. A real plus for us is that there were a lot of TV channels to choose from (like a basic cable package, plus HBO, and including on-demand), and also the microwave and fridge in room. The walls were pretty thin, but that's to be expected with this type of motel. Overall an excellent value. Close to everything, too, and about 15 min from Disney if you're wondering.

We arrived very late and the staff was excellent. I have stayed at Ayers hotels for many years and they are always great and this one has everything you could need close and was freeway close. While we were there for only three nights we had freshly made breakfast each morning, scrambled eggs made fresh, pancakes one morning, french toast the next and waffles the next. Fresh fruit, potatoes, pastries etc. We were able to visit family in Anaheim hill, San Dimas and Disneyland were all very close. It was excellent and we will be back.
