I am English so I dont use the word cute, but really nothing else will describe this place! It is lovely, the rooms styled around the room name. We were in Fish Fantasy, so had a lot of fish related stuff - wonderfully done. The rooms are small, but then fish dont need a lot of space. There is a... More

Most enjoyable and friendly place to stay. After Pacific Highway drive from Carmel a perfect motel with the hosts more than helpful. Managed to arrive on the wrong day which was sorted without issue and then left my camera in the room, this was forwarded to the UK (many many thanks). Highly recommended and the town itself well worth a... More

Peaceful, quiet, safe, clean, comfy, great shower pressure, tastefully decorated with beautiful quilts and soft linens, a short walk to the sand-about 5 houses from sand through a gate in the colorful fun garden…I can't wait to return and I will as soon as I can! Forget about any other beach town in California. This will be my new go-to... More

Yes, the price was indeed very expansive for a motel. That's probably the only problem of this Motel. Rooms are decorated, which make them a bit more pleasant that your usual Motel room, but most importantly they are clean. The man at the front desk was very welcoming and warm, which is always nice and not always expected. All in... More

Myself and my two teenaged children stayed in the west wind suite for 3 nights while on a biking trip. Great location in Cayucos near the supermarket, restaurants and a short quiet walk to the beach. Owners are very pleasant, they allowed us to park our bikes around the back of the motel. Room was a good size, even for... More

We stayed for a few nights in late June '14. A real change of pace. What a GREAT job the owners have done and continue to do making this a special and different place. This is a 40's or 50's type 'Motel'. But it is NOT one of those places you drive by and think 'I'd never stay there'. It... More

Stayed for 4 nights........busy time of year....but a wonderful 4 days. Owners of Seaside are awesome....really concerned about how your stay is going. Always willing to make suggestions of where to eat, where Farmers Markets are & what to do in the town. Will definitely stay there again. Met several nice couples of Ireland & Holland....had a great time visiting... More

The Seaside Motel is family owned and run. When I arrived for a one-night stay I found the proprietor outside doing the gardening! It's obviously run with love and affection. I look forward to this being a favorite stop on my way to Big Sur camping
