We were traveling up the Pacific Coast One so this seemed like a good place to stop on paper. We should of checked with Capt. Obvious or TripAdvisor. Now I generally try to look for something good in everything so let's look at the positive first. The location is excellent, less than 10 min off the One. We were here... More

I was a little worried due to the reviews I found of this place online. These people must be talking about another place. I found this place to be very charming, relaxing and enjoyable. We had Wifi, a nice gas fireplace and what looked to be new furniture and drapes. I wasn't fond of the wallpaper, so I think if... More

This is nice hotel, about 2 blocks from beach entry. It is located in center part of town and getting to all shops is easy. The Staff & Manager are very cordial and helpful. Hotel rooms with kitchens have a great floor plan. Kitchen has what you need. Refrgerator is not full size, but larger than what is generally found... More

Ok, so it was not a resort quality hotel! But it was clean and had a great bed. Our room had a king size bed, fireplace and a working bathroom. Not the latest decor. BUT most importantly I accidentally left my makeup bag with over $150 of new product and brushes in it. I called them the next day and... More

Too many improvements needed to list. Like many places in Cayucos this motel has no a/c. This would be ok however our window had no screen so could not leave it open. The towel bar in the bathroom fell off the wall and the shower does not drain. Will not be returning.

For a basic motel on the non-ocean side of the highway, this was fine. The price was very reasonable, I think it was $72 (we booked online one day ahead). Our 2nd floor room (# 206) was spacious, clean, and had a gas fireplace, a ceiling fan, a microwave and a small fridge. It had two upholstered sitting chairs and... More

The outside of the motel is deceives the visitor, it is well kept and clean, the rooms however are not. A little effort and this place could really shine. Positives: Guest were well behaved and quiet, grounds were well kept. Negatives; Sandpaper towels, hard bed, lamps which work if you plug them in (no knobs) and tv remotes which work... More

nice quiet place, we had one of the suites with the fireplace which was nice. the only down side, there was an old hole in the celing in the bathroom probubly caused by a leak upstairs. It wasn't a deal breaker for us. The price couldn't be beat especially for a saturday night stay. We would definately stay there again.
