Reviewed 13 December 2016

Overall experience was 3 stars because the hotel is currently being remodeled. The room itself was nicely remodeled but had a slight smoky smell. Not sure if this is because the bathroom window was open and perhaps someone was smoking outside or if chain smokers had stayed in the room previously. Also, no air conditioning in the unit other than...

We stayed for one night during our roudtrip. Good location and very friendly/helpful staff. Restaurants in close vicinity. Room was just renovated, very clean and cozy. Parking was available. For a motel rather expensive. We highly recommend it.

Very clean, friendly staff. Very easy to find, right off the freeway. Newer flat screen televisions with satellite. Free ice, Nice INDOOR pool and hot tub! We even stayed a extra night because we liked it so much. We will be coming back!

Hi, we really enjoyed our stay here. Out of an RV for the last 10 days. Super welcoming, great service, rooms spacious and well priced. Close to all you'd expect in this magnificent location. Well located to next door Eatery which was amazing.

We used to love this little gem, but over 40 years of staying here off and on every few years? They could care less as to our patronage as seen with this last visit as a special occasion trip to the Cambria area. We spent more to get a "Patio Room", and the patio ended up being, a 2 ft...

Clean, comfortable room. Pleasantly unexpected indoor pool and spa my kids and I could enjoy on a cold, foggy day. Close to the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and a well stocked mini mart. Close to Hearst Castle which is what we needed.

Super convenient if you want to be close to Hearst castle. This motel may be a little scuffed and not updated but it's clean, the staff is nice, they are dog friendly (dog fee is $15) and the price is right. Rooms look out to a nice grass courtyard with picnic benches, the rooms are a good size and have...

My boyfriend and I stayed for his birthday weekend. They recently renovated the bathroom and we were impressed. The shower was tall enough for him to not have to duck under the shower head! We had a great time exploring the coast and getting a much needed vacation.

You would be better off making a tepee out of driftwood and staying on the beach. This place needs a revamp from head to toe. From the pool to the rooms, rundown and shabby are the most apt descriptions I can give. When our family was kept awake ALL night by tromping drunken upstairs neighbors and various hotel alarms going...

We stayed here for two nights on our trip down the west coast. We had originally booked one night through one of the well known online sites and then decided to stay for an extra night. I went online and booked another night ,left it for twenty minutes and then went to reception to confirm that the booking was ok...
