First off the rooms smelled horribly. The beds had 3 inch foam on top of the mattress with cigarette burn marks in them. The tv cable did not work. I can say Erin did try to resolve the issue by replacing the box. It was the service that was the problem. All around the motel needs to be totally renovated....

I have read other reviews about this property and we did not experience any of the problems that they spoke of. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a microwave and fridge. Small bathroom but, clean and water became hot very fast. Coffee maker in room, along with ironing board and iron. Flat screen tv with...

After our home burned the staff and managers of the Sea Esta were a huge relief. We needed someplace to stay for a couple weeks with our dog. That's hard to find. We were very happy at the Sea Esta and will it recommend to friends. Another location is super convenient to nightlife and another is close to the beach....

While I prefer the Sea Esta III which is in the heart of Dewey, the Sea Esta IV is a nice, pet friendly motel which is in walking distance of Silver Lake. Let me start by clarifying a few things I've read in other reviews - our room was extremely clean, the wifi worked perfectly, the heating/cooling unit kept our...

Needed pet friendly place to stay so I booked Sea Esta IV. After reading some of the reviews here, I became concerned and packed my own sheets. Well, I didn't need them. The room was clean, just like the pictures showed and I had no problems with billing or anything else. Yes they still use keys instead of cards, but...

Charge our credit card multiple times - causing us to incurred bounced fees - lady says she can't fix that - BS! Then tries to say oh yeah I see I charged you twice her (on the lower rate when it was the higher rate). They should comp us a night for the inconvenience. The constant dog barking was awful...

Our room was on ground level as I had requested. It was fairly clean, but the floors in the kitchen and bath were tacky from the cleaner that they use. Beds were comfortably firm, but only full size and not queen size. Nice TV with HBO and WIFI. One issue was that the florescent light over the sink wasn't working....

Clearly they have issues with cleanliness. I would not stay here again if it was free. The shower curtain had mold on it and there were cobwebs in the corners. The bed was very uncomfortable and the key didn't work very well in the door.

Cheap but dirty. Obvious signs room wasn't cleaned properly. Hair in drain, dirty coffee pot, open packages of sugar and creamer. If you stay here check your room before getting comfortable. Unless you just want the cheapest spot to crash.

I think the hotel does not offer anything special, just enjoys its good location.Our room was modest but clean. If there is only one elevator which I think there is it is not enough especially when people checking out meet room service at the same time. Convenient parking.
