Stayed one night in June when travelling down Highway 1 from SF to LA. We got, after an hours wait, a big room facing the pool area with superb beds, safe in room and a spacious bathroom. Just perfect for our family of three. During our stay, parking, wifi and breakfast was complimentary. Very much appreciated. The hotel and its... More

This hotel is pretty nice and very easy to find. The room was a little small but was clean and comfy. There was not much a view but we weren't there to enjoy a view. The bonus of this hotel was the awesome farmers market that takes place in an adjoining parking lot on Tuesdays!

My daughter and I stay here for two nights during our tour of the California coast. The hotel was right off of Highway 1. The room was a little worn and literally "very green". It's a motel with rooms surrounded by a swimming pool. Luckily, our room didn't face the pool because there were a lot of young kids having... More

We are frequent visitor to the area. During our last min trip we decided to stay here. Don't expect ocean front but the rooms are clean, modern and spacious. I also think they deserve an extra star as they had bathrobes and decent toiletries. The facility is at a great location with easy parking.

My friend and I stayed here in July when we were driving from San Francisco down Highway 1. Our room was lovely and very clean. There was a large bathroom which was very clean and quite modern.

We decided on a last minute trip to Monterey/Carmel which meant we had to take our 85lb German Shepheard with us. We found this hotel online and grabbed the last dog friendly room on a busy weekend in the Monterey area (major motorcycling and dog show events going on). It's well located just off Highway 1 in Carmel, a short... More

Stayed here for one night on the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The hotel is right by the Highway 1 but wasn't disturbed by traffic noise at all. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

We just stayed here en route and the hotel was fine but cam across to us as a fairly basic motel on a busy highway. Nice staff - room was OK. Pool was being 'fixed' so didn't use that or have time to see much more of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent.

This is a well kept and well located hotel. It has all the comfort that a person needs after a day's driving. The rooms are very nice and comfy. Only (small) remark is that when you use the parking lot in the back, it is less fortunate that the customer is explicetely confronted with maintenance. But I suppose that's the... More
