My children and I have been here 5 times since feb 2014 and it's the coziest ,closest and safest place. We get room7 and I can see my kids walk to the beach. (Each room has it's unique theme) They can even walk downtown by themselves. Rick and Rebecca run the place and it feels like you are going to... More

Oh you paint such a wonderful picture Stevens875, thank you! It is such a compliment and so endearing, to see that others love our little place just as much as we do. It is our oasis and we are so happy you have found it one of yours as well. More

This is one of our favorite places for a quiet week. It's close to many wonderful sights, including Hearst Castle, Cambria, Moro Bay, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, wineries, butterflies, elephant seals, and lighthouses (just to name a few). We love small family-run motels, and Rick and Rebecca have created one of the best! Every room has surprisingly tasteful decorations,... More

We try to visit Cayucos and the Seaside Motel every six weeks or so. As we drive into Cayucos, we say "we are home" and as we pull into the Seaside we breath a sigh of relief knowing that we are in a safe, clean, and comfortable place. Every room is uniquely decorated. Our favorite things are barbecueing in the... More

We've only been twice now - unlike many of the very regular guests - but when we're in Cayucos again, we'll be back. It's homey, quaint, friendly, clean, and affordable. Kind of like beach motels used to be back in the 60s and 70s.

I live on the Central Coast and needed occasional lodging nearby which provided an excellent and reliable internet connection, safety for a single woman, peace and quiet, cleanliness, and good eateries and the ocean within walking distance. I found these and more when I discovered the Seaside Motel and met the wonderful Rick and Rebecca, hosts extraordinaire! For the past... More

My husband and I were introduced to the Seaside Motel 25 years ago. From that time on, we usually visited twice a year, often by ourselves and occasionally with our young sons. Eventually, we introduced other family and friends to our special place which made for some great memories for everyone. Even after my husband passed away 13 years ago,... More

We stay a week every year around New Years with family. We get one of the kitchenettes so we can have meals and play games together in one room. Seaside also furnishes barbecues and the briquets in the beautiful patio area. The rooms are crisp, clean, and comfortable. Rick and Rebecca are great hosts who know the area and can... More

Had a great stay September 2014. There are not many motels to choose from along Hwy 1, and most are not well kept up, nor are they right on the ocean. Cayucos offers Seaside Motel, a great little city and Seaside is a fantastic value for its location. Cruising down Hwy 1 from San Jose, enjoying the ride with the... More
