I am ok with people staying in a motel with their pets, but I don't want to stay in the rooms where they have stayed! Next door to our room, there were 3 dogs lounging on the bed. The morning we left, a guy way taking a 50 lb bag of dog food out of his room and loading in... More

Thank you for your review, babybonkin, we appreciate all guest feedback. I suggest booking a non pet room, such as a Spectacular King upstairs with beautiful ocean views! We clean our carpets regularly and remove any evidence of pets from our pet friendly rooms. Spots on the carpet will be dealt with immediately, so thank you for letting us address... More

This motel is what it says, a pet-friendly one-star motel. It is on the ocean and has beautiful views. It is noisy on the road side, the walls are thin, the beds were uncomfortable, and the pillows from the 1960's. Nevertheless, they do not misrepresent themselves. We just did not want a pet-friendly room, and when we reserved our room,... More

Thank you, Bernie1903, for your review. We appreciate all guest feedback. I suggest booking an upstairs room so you get a better nights sleep! I want to assure you that housekeeping does a very thorough cleaning of each room, the dog hair is a one time oversight. I hope you will give us another chance to show you we want... More

Stayed over the 4th of July weekend. First time visit - - couldn't have been better. We made reservations for next year! All rooms face out to the ocean. They are pet friendly (have a dog run, etc.) Kid friendly too. There's a path directly in back of the motel (where the rooms are) that goes for miles and miles.... More

We loved the great beach view. Older motel has been updated and is clean and comfortable and the towels were large and fluffy. Private balcony with chairs allows you to relax and enjoy the water. We rented bicycles for $8 per hour and enjoyed riding on the trail. It was a little hard to get to the beach because of... More

Thank you for your great review, Betty N! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! There are several secluded beach areas along the coastal trail, some of which have a very easy path to the water! Our bike rentals are great for an after dinner ride along the bluffs! We look forward to welcoming you back! Alex Guest Relations... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights over a weekend in mid-July with our adult children and their spouses or significant others. We were so pleased with our selection. Our rooms on the second floor were quite spacious, clean and comfortable and had a beautiful view of the beach. The front desk staff and housekeeping staff were all very... More

Thank you, C Michael C, for your great review! I am so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay! If you didn't have a chance to walk through Botanical Gardens on this trip, I recommend it for your next visit-it's another great place to hike along the bluffs!

My wife and two daughters (aged 9 and 7) spent the night here on a road trip from San Francisco to Portland. It was late afternoon when we checked in and the kids were cranky from a long day's drive up the coast but their bad mood vanished when we opened the door to our hotel room and saw the... More

Thank you, David S, for your review! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!

Being an avid TA user and traveler this reservation was a last minute thing because we had a change of plans. However it was #4 on TA and had a certificate of excellence which is what I always look for in a place to stay. We checked in on Friday afternoon and got room 208 facing the ocean which was... More

I stayed 2 nights on the second floor of this motel. I chose it because of its beach access and wonderful views, and it did not disappoint in this respect. I appreciated the bicycle rentals they offer, the free wifi, and the inclusion of breakfast in the room rate (although it wasn't great). The room was a decent size, but... More

We had a very nice time. Love the location of this property. Great views and the beach in so close. Only thing that we considered a problem was that it was extremely warm in the room when the patio door was closed at night. We were on the 2nd floor but our room had access from the boardwalk so we... More

Thank you for your great review, SANDY N! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have been having some great weather on the coast lately; you can cool off with the ocean breeze coming through your sliding door or the front office can provide a few portable fans.

The Beachcomber has a great location and when they say spectacular views of the ocean and sunset from the upstairs rooms, they are not exaggerating! Loved the balcony and just watching the ocean. The rooms however are not so spectacular. But they are clean, well kept and neat. The bathroom and tub area is TINY. The vanity and sink are... More

Thank you, ILoveJesus777, for your review! The Coastal Walking Trail, like you mentioned, runs behind the hotel. This trail covers several miles along the coast, making it the perfect spot to jog, bike, or take an evening walk after dinner! We hope to welcome you back on your next trip!
