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

We came from the Bay Area and met our San Diego family for aunt's 75th - our NY peeps surprised her - it was the perfect spot for all of us. Wine and apps in the garden each afternoon the sound of the ocean, walks to town and restaurants, we even BBQ'd one night in the garden area...we took over... 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

I thought I had posted a review before but I guess not. We too 'found' this place by accident and we LOVED it and have stayed there more than once and will again. The owners Rick and Rebecca are fantastic hosts and they know how to treat their customers and this is sadly missing in a lot of establishments but... More

First let me say that the owners, Rick & Rebecca are so wonderful. I felt as if we had been friends for years. I loved chatting with Rebecca and learning the history of the Motel. These two work their business and care about their customers. We stayed in the Seaside room #12. Cozy & comfortable. I loved listening to the... More

What a wonderful find this small, agreeably friendly and clean accommodation turned out to be. Rick and Rebecca were such kind hosts, even allowing us to borrow their own personal laptop so we could check our e-mails, having brought no device of our own with us. I had spent hours planning our trip down PCH1, (which we started up at... More

We LOVED the Seaside Motel and Cayucas! Thank you Rick and Rebecca for providing such a fantastic place to hang out. Rick greated us in the driveway as we drove up for the first time and delivered our keys to us in the Sunflower Surprise room. We loved that room!!! It is VERY clean and so cutely decorated.

The room was clean, great customer service, amazing garden, can hear the waves at night, shortcut to the beach. We can't wait to go back, I told my husband I didn't want to leave & that I wanted to live in the garden.

The garden(s) are lovely and the place is decorated pretty cute. Whether making reservations through email, checking in or checking out, the proprietors were quite friendly and helpful. They seem to do everything, from maintaining the beautiful grounds, to cleaning the rooms - they are hands on. From the outside this place looks almost cuddly and seemed full to capacity... More

Thank you FoggyMonday for a lovely review! Yes, Rick and I are very hands on - we do love our "job"! Thank you for letting us know about the room... we are surprised to hear as we do re-carpet all the rooms every 2-3 years. However the sea salt and sand take their toll! Please do let us know right... More

Each charming room is unique in decor, all sprinkled with gifts from their ever-loving customers. The back garden patio can be found softly buzzing with wine sippers, book readers and chit-chatters! ... more   less
