The location of the motel was very convenient for us as we could walk to visit our friends at the nearby motor home park, and Rosas across the street is always great. The proprietor was friendly, but the room wasn't particularly clean. The bedding was, but the floors weren't. Smelled of strong Pine Sol (or something). Breakfast was "underwhelming", but...

Stayed here for a night on drive up coast. Room was nice size and clean. Room was warm and they did have a fan in room. Carpet was really dirty and I didn't want to walk barefoot. Bed was extremely tall, but ok. Breakfast was in small front office and had 2 types of cereal and you could make your...

Very noisy, not very clean, shockingly poor breakfast (think stale cheerios ), and terrible office staff. The bed was very high so not easy for everyone to climb up. The office manager made rude and derogatory comments and asked strange questions. Would not return.

The motel was easy to get to. It was only a few blocks from the beach and close to the pier and shops. It was a good spot to explore the surrounding area. The rooms were clean and staff very nice. I would recommend and stay again if I was in the area. The continental breakfast was a little small.

The hotel was easy to get to off the highway and check in was easy. The room was as in the pictures and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. We walked to the Outlet Shops down the road which aren't far but at night there is very little to no street lighting. The motel is a short walk from...

We were in Pismo Beach for a wedding, and this motel was only 3 blocks from the beach. Very easy to walk to the boardwalk, and around town. The room was clean and the owners were very nice. Convenient to mall and restaurants.

At first! The people who run this place are absolutely adorable! So friendly! Our room was clean! Comfortable! Perfect! We came here after we left San Francisco that morning! We had beautiful weather in the morning, but it became worse going more south! Too bad, because we were so excited about Highway 1! But don't get me wrong it was...

From reading reviews, I got the idea that this place had been recently remodeled. Our room was old and not very clean. location right off the freeway is noisy and didn't feel real safe. we were able to walk to beach and restaurants, though. Didn't even try the breakfast. I realize this motel was budget-priced, but, I just expected a...

The room looks exactly as pictured above. Older rooms but clean and the bed was great. Very comfortable. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave. Just a few blocks from the pier, easy to walk back and forth. There is no view of ocean. Hotel is near the entrance to Hwy 101 which you can hear the road noise some but...

Stayed here for 1 night during a roadtrip on highway 1. + The room was overall comfortable. Bed was comfortable. However, it was too high. They seem to have 2 mattresses on top of each other, you need to jump to get on to the bed, where as the nightstands next it are not as high. Which is not very...
