    I was shocked when I realized there was Newly remodeled room with no ac? However, even in the middle of summer with just opening the window, the room was cool. Very convenient location, close to Big Sur (the South end) Hearst Castle and Elephant Seals.

    No, it is a budget motel across the street from the beach. They do have an indoor pool and hot tub which I did not find inviting. The rooms were large and comfortable.
