The lady who runs the hotel was so nice and helpful. While we were checking in, she was telling us about the different renovations she was doing to make the hotel even better. The room was pleasant for the price and overall, we would definitely stay here again! It was a great place to safely lay your head down and... More

This motel is a few miles up the main road from the state beach at Marina. The rooms are very clean, with refrigerator and microwave. It is not fancy, but with a price lower than the other chain motels in town, it is our go to for Marina. The owners and desk personnel are all friendly and helpful.

Hotel was as advertised. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We drove in to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. It is a short drive and much less expensive than staying directly in one of those areas. There is a gas station in front of the hotel, but we were not disturbed by it.
