Chose Nordic Motel based on Tripadvisor ratings. Sometimes I want fancy, sometimes I want basic. Nordic Motel is basic, but a very nice place! Was not disappointed. Upon entering the motel, I saw that the grounds were clean, tidy and nicely painted. The room itself had been remodeled and was also spotless. Had all the amenities one could ask for – comfortable bed with both memory foam pillows and regular, a small chair to lounge in, LCD tv and Dvd player, a table with chairs for two, and a full kitchen! The bathroom was average size and also remodeled. We had arrived early, as we had taken an early flight, well before the official check-in time. We had wanted to leave our bags, but the manager told us the room was ready and gave us the key! We left our bags, made a quick stop at a local grocery store down the street for fruits and snacks, and went about our sightseeing. We slept very well. The property is on a busy street and near train tracks, but this did not bother us (we were also in the rear of the property.) I found everyone to be very friendly, and – as mentioned before – the motel and room were spotless! Close to airport and freeways, too. I’d definitely return!
