We love the Seaside Motel. The rooms are charming, comfortable, and delightful, and Rick and Rebecca. are the BEST of the best. We just keep coming back! If you just want to relax, this is the place....the beach, the garden, the sweet rooms. A few antique shops, good restaurants, and a delicious cookie store are a short walk away. Hearst... More

The owners take immense pride in, and continue to add delight and color to their property. Easy access to the beach ~ no need to cross... More

This excellent motel has been owned and operated by Rick and Rebecca for almost 35 years! It is cozy, comfortable, clean, and quiet. The beach is a very short walk away. My family has vacationed here many times over the last 20 years, and it is always our first choice when visiting the central coast of California. During summer, and... More

Stayed at Seaside Motel on our drive down from San Francisco to LA in September. It was the cutest motel (we had the room called "tea for two") we stopped at along the Pacific coast. So many lovely touches that fitted in with the room theme. The rooms were clean and gorgeous. Garden is beautiful and literally backs onto the... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Seaside Motel. It was a charming motel. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The motel was centrally located and an short easy walk to the beach. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There was a TV in the room, a small coffee maker and enough room to store my things.... More

This is our very favorite place to stay in Cayucos. Not only is it the cleanest motel I have ever been to, it's also the most peaceful and relaxing. The lovely garden and barbecue area is ideal for reading and having a nice picnic supper. The beach is less than five minutes away and Rick and Rebecca are the ideal... More
