We arrived here around 20.00 hours one evening having driven from Monterey. The gentleman who appeared in reception was polite and helped us with local restaurants. The motel room was large and clean but very basic and depressingly brown. There were just two cheap toiletry sachets, soap and shampoo/conditioner and a thin brown throw on the bed. The 'breakfast' was... More

The staff are very uninterested and while not exactly rude it's like they could give 2 hoots if you were there or not. The complimentary "breakfast" is a joke and the rooms while OK are average at best. When booking you get asked if you'd like a balcony or a view......neither of these options are good so just pick whichever... More

Great location, great sunset, the rooms are nice and clean, the bathrooms adequate. The pool is small and not too clean.... Breakfast; very simple, little space but altogether ok. The surroundings quite charming, the shore fabulous!

--Intrigued by those very thin walls that allow one to hear all of the intimate moments of neighboring rooms. Probably one of the thinnest I've encountered. And such a learning experience for my teen daughter! --Lulled by the hand car wash across the street that frequently mixed sounds with sea birds. --Blessed by the thoughtfulness of the proprietors, who when...

This is a well run and appointed motel. The staff was extremely helpful and eager to point out local points of interest. It is not on the ocean but it is within walking distance of the wharf and its associated businesses. The Morro Rock is within walking distance.

We just stayed one night as travelling up the coast. It was in a great location, clean and had no problems with either the parking or the staff. Value for money for the location just a small walk to restaurants and shops....

Rooms were very big but not many outlets. Staff was not very friendly. Breakfast consisted of packaged danishes, coffee, and orange juice. Beds were hard. Looks like it was recently remodeled. Price didn't justify what was received. I'll stay elsewhere next time I'm in town.
