Our room is huge, overlooking the ocean and even though it's foggy, we still get good glimpses. Walking trails are great. Breakfast at the sister hotel next door was good. We are on the outskirts of town, and it is quiet and peaceful. Stayed a second night we were so thankful for that. Service has been friendly as needed, never... More

This place has the perfect location if you want to wake up, open your door to hear the crashing of the waves, and smell the sea air.

I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay, Ovenbird! You are right about our location as we are in a tranquil spot slightly north of town. This gives us closer ocean access than you could get in town, more uninterrupted views and – as you said – more chance to hear the lovely roar of the Pacific waves! Walking to... More

We love this place and come back 3-4 times a year (and have for the past 10+ years). Purchased a couple years ago by the Beachcomber Motel family, it has been remodeled and updated so our favorite downstairs two-queen room now has a fridge and microwave, new furniture, ample lighting, an easy chair, table and two comfortable chairs, a large...
