Typical BW motel. Comfortable, clean, affordable. Love the afternoon wine, cheese & crackers, and they let you bring it back to your room. Room was adequate, nicely furnished, clean. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Wifi in the room worked well to check email & surf the web. Only drawback were the rude guests who were very noisy outside... More

Shared a room with my grown up boys. We were travelling with friends and family to San Francisco from San Diego. Took a stop here for the night. Room was on the ground floor. Less lights. Was ok. Bathroom very clean. For breakfast made my own waffle in their machine. The Morro rock down the road in the ocean looks... More

The hotel and decor is dated but everything is clean and presented well. We were especially pleased that there were good reading lamps by the bed and there was black tea -- both regular and decaffeinated-- in the room. We've stayed at hotels for twice the price where we had to go to the car for a flashlight to read... More

Got this hotel on a hotwire reservation. After reading the reviews was a little dubious. At check in, Angela was by far the best part of the whole experience. Helpful, funny and went out of her way to accommodate us. Hotel itself is in need of an update but is clean. Queen beds are not very comfortable and comments about... More

Construction material in parking spaces. Limited very tight parking. Boarded up windows in front of building. Lobby area for food too cramped more than three and you bumped into each other. Missing windows not appealing. Small fan did not cool room so open window made cloths damp. For time of year rate was too high for quality.

Thank you for your feedback. We are in the beginning stages of a major remodel, hence the missing windows in the breakfast area which are now replaced with new ones. Also we are remodeling the breakfast area and the front desk area so that it won't be so crowded. Storage space is limited so we've had to use a parking... More

HOTEL: I liked the hotel in appearance, overall. Office staff was very nice, accomodating, and always available during hours posted (7:30 am - 11 pm). Rooms were clean and spacious but the bath (toilet & stand-up shower) was a bit crowded. The atrium area echoed and was very loud in the rooms. Because there is no airconditioning and windows need...

This was okay. The best part was that they put supplies out to clean our motorcycles in the morning. Shower water pressure was poor. I had paid for a partial ocean view which I did not receive. We had a nice balcony which had a stunning view of the hotel parking lot. The wine and cheese snack in the evening... More
