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.

My husband booked The Beachwalker Inn a couple of days before we stayed, last week, thru something like hotel.com - got a king bed room for $79. The motel was clean and inviting, our room was clean, VERY comfy bed (and I am whiny/picky about hotel beds), had frig and microwave, TWO inviting overstuffed chairs with table, perfect for our...

Arrived at 6pm after a long journey. Everywhere I had previously looked up online was fully booked (should have pre-booked) so booked into beachwalker Inn. Should have followed my gut instinct and walked out but we were all tired and needed somewhere to stay for the night. Service beyond awful. Room dirty. Holes in the blankets. Beds uncomfortable. The worst... More

Anne Marie was a sweetheart. The Owners were pleasant too. The ONLY problem with this place is paper thin walls, floors,... More

10/8/2012 We (Mom, Dad and daughter) stayed at the Beach Walker Inn and Suites last weekend. To say the service was abysmal and the room was unacceptable would be a gross understatement. We were headed to Paso Robles for a wedding and could not find any rooms there or in Templeton as I booked late. So, I looked on the... More

The other known dog-friendly establishments in Cayucos, a favorite destination of ours, were booked, so I chose The Beachwalker Inn. Regretfully, I did not read the reviews on Tripadvisor, instead embracing a dubious recommendation from some pet-friendly hotel site. I booked the day before our arrival. Cayucos was a 3-hour drive. A woman appeared at the Inn office and grimly... More

You are to be treated worse than a dog is what they meant when they advertised, “pet friendly.” Read every review and decide for yourself. If you have a pet, you are relegated to the “dog” house. It’s the room in the back down a dark outside hallway at the end of the building with a sliding glass door as... More
