There aren't too many nicer hotels around this part of the mid-California coastline, and this one is very inexpensive. No frills, but that would have been fine had there not been several flying insects in the room, including a huge one (at least an inch across) that we crushed on the wall. It stayed there even after maid service the... More

My family took a spontaneous trip north up the coast from Los Angeles. As it was about to get dark, we decided to stay the night and continue our adventures the next day.

We stay at this hotel several times a year and always enjoy it. This stay I noticed we had no soap as I was heading into the shower. I called the front desk and literally I had soap in 3 minutes !! I love the location, so close to beaches and you can't beat the price !!

the motel fit our budget needs just fine. It was clean and quiet. Looked like a nice pool and Jacuzzi. It was indoors. We could see the Pacific ocean from the parking lot. They had an option for breakfast at the restaurant next door for $8. When we arrived at the restaurant, our server told us we had to prepurchase... More

Area was safe and close to Hearst castle which is what we wanted. This hotel was clean but really old. There was a lot of dust behind night table. The rooms were large and on the first level for convenience to pull your car right up by your door. We did have to go back to desk as workers were... More

The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Good for a weekend getaway. Take some supplies only a few stores and restaurant i the immediate location. Nice beach areas that are not heavily populated. If you look for peace, quiet, and privacy this is the place to visit.

Some idiot decided that it would be a good idea to install a motion detector in the bathroom. If you get up in the middle of the night to relieve yourself expect that the instant you enter the bathroom you will be blinded by two (another reviewer mentioned 3) 300 watt floodlights (recently retrieved from an interrogation cell at Guantanamo,...

Unfortunately, there seems to be a pattern of low quality lodging along the central coast of California. There's always an abundance of travelers in the area, yet the quality does not match the price. This hotel is the basic low quality beachside offerings. We stayed in room 222 which is called a "family room" because it had a king and... More

I had a terrible experience at the Courtesy Inn. The bathroom door was partially blocked by one of the beds. Room was tiny. TV reception terrible. Curtains didn't block the light, paper thin walls, chair didn't fit at the desk (which was the only counter space in the place). Sheets gave me a rash. Seriously thought about sleeping in the...
