These people really don't need another "positive" review, but I found this to be one of the most wonderful motels I've ever stayed in. It was apparently a dumpy old place when the current owners, Rick and Rebecca, bought it 35 years ago, and they have done wonders with it. If it isn't a botique hotel, it's certainly a botique...

I've been coming to the Seaside every year for the better part of a decade. I always stay here. It's a home away from home feel. The rooms are incredibly clean and the garden is a huge bonus for BBQ. No to mention the view of the ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the waves as they break.... More

We stayed at your wonderful Seaside Motel in June of this year. We loved the friendly, laid back atmosphere and all of the attention paid to detail and "artsy touches"...We got a really "retro" feel, which we found so refreshing...We were actually given a real "key" to open the door to our room (not a key card)...When checking in, I...

We, the Nixons think only of you, "Seaside", when we long to see & enjoy all that the Central Coast offers. We can drive up & down the coast and when tired of doing so we come to our "place" and turn the key to complete comfort. Thank you both very much for making it this perfect. sincerely, Norman &...

We went to Cayucus to visit with some friend and found the Seaside here on Tripadvisor. I emailed and was lucky enough to get the last room for the weekend. What a cute place! We got room 1, "the birdhouse". Super cute, very comfy, and really nice folks. Looking forward to our next visit.

It is always a pleasure staying at Seaside Motel. The owners (Rick and Rebecca) are so friendly and hard workers. The rooms are themed and a little quirky but done in nice taste. Love that it is so close to the little town and walking distance to everything in Cayucos. There is a back gate and a short walk to... More

Always and only the only place we stay in Cayucos for over 20 years. Had a different room than in the past and it was as wonderful as the others. Everything in town and the beach in walking distance. The other guests, like me, are always returning on a regular basis and enjoy sharing our experiences.

Been traveling down US1 from San Fran to San Diego and we had one of the best nights in this awesome little town on the beach. Rebecca and Rick are awesome and have a great place to stay. Clean and very fitting for the environment you are in. Went to Schooners and set at the bar overlooking the Pacific and... More

This is a great place to come and get away. Rick and Rebecca are the best! They are the nicest couple that really take good care of the place. Me and my wife come here every year, it's steps from the beach and has such a charm about it. I'd recommend it to anyone traveling to cayucos!

We loved the Seaside Motel and cannot wait to return. Rick and Rebecca were excellent hosts. The rooms were exceptionally clean and adorable! The garden with the peak at the ocean is fabulous. We enjoyed a nice evening on the patio sipping wine with other guests. The property is located within waling distance of downtown Caycucos as well as the... More
