This place is a real gem. Peak ocean views from the Cayucos Suite, well stocked kitchen, comfy down comforter. The garden is a wonderful place to sip coffee in the am, wine in the pm. The owners' time and efforts are obvious. This is a labor of love for them and a great place to stay. Will return

The rooms at the Seaside Motel are different to any motel I visited before. They are decorated and painted with love. The Seaside Motel has a nice little garden with barbecue place and you can tell the owner is putting a lot of effort in this nice little place. You can see and hear the garden out of the garden....

My wife and I, from Indana were in CA visiting relatives in Visalia. They suggested we go to Paso Robles to wine country. Enjoying good wine, we did just that. We were told that Morrow Bay is where we should stay but we drove through Cayucos and thought it very nice. Once we got to Morrow Bay we decided to... More

We are so glad you decided on our beautiful town to rest your head and relax your feet. We agree, Schooner's calamari is the best! We always order it! We hope your trip back to Indianapolis went smoothly and we sure hope it warms up soon for you. Lovely to have you both, Rick and Rebecca More

What a great little place in a laid-back, relaxing town! Our room was comfortable, quirky, and spotlessly clean; Rebecca and Rick are helpful, attentive hosts. We got a good night's sleep in the comfy bed and appreciated the free wifi. I had a little problem with the shower: I'm short and because the shower head is not adjustable I was... More

Very good price for very cute motel in laid back beach town. Clean, nice proprietors, cute garden to relax in . Theme rooms make it. Mini Madonna Inn like low cost motel. Sometimes basic can be boring but they made it fun. Recommended!

I can't really rate this charming hotel as "excellent" - it's a little cozy and worn for that - but certainly if you are going to the central coast for a quick getaway, this is your place! Value for money is 100%. Rooms are clean, Rebecca and Rick are super friendly, beds are comfortable, the shower is the best I... More

We had a wonderful stay in one of the kitchenette suites. Clean, quiet, relaxing, comfortable spot. We were traveling with our little 1.5 year old son and loved the simple charm of the property. Rebecca takes great pride in her garden and it was wonderful to sit out there and enjoy the great fall weather. Close to everything you'd want... More
