We stayed here for one night when travelling around California. We stayed in the 'birdhouse bungalow' which was absolutely gorgeous inside, with so many cute little decorative touches, and was very clean. The beds were very comfortable, and lots of fluffy towels provided, as well as toiletries etc. The area was quiet at night, and we felt safe and secure... More

Rebecca's gardens are beautiful year around. Twice I've seen her cutting the grass around the flower beds with scissors! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owners have taken... More

We loved this little 50's refurbished motel. 12 adorable units all decorated & maintained by the owners so it is IMMACULATE!! We would definitely stay here again. The lovely garden with ocean view was so peaceful & inviting.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Seaside Motel in Cayucos after a very hoity toity weekend in Carmel. It was such a breath of fresh air! The room, although fairly tiny (we opted for the smallest room without a kitchenette) was absolutely sparkling clean. And everything that you are used to in a top notch hotel was there.... More

If you are anywhere nearby, even a nearby city, this place is worth the drive. The rooms are super fun and cool. The pictures don't even do it justice! It's even better. The staff is so friendly and help make the stay even more enjoyable. The butterfly garden in the back is so cool and so nice to sit outside... More

Sitting out in the garden at the picnic table for dinner was one of my favorite moments. I absolutely will be coming back to Cayucos and when... More
