we stayed here last season, and like most of the reviews, I tend to agree with them. The place is Average at best..and just about sufficient for a short stay. If you get a chance, look elsewhere. Good point -- close to beach!

We stayed here last year, which also happened to be a time when heat wave was wrecking havoc across CA region. Unfortunately, the stay here did not help much. The place was quite hot (some sort of temporary cooling arrangement would have helped). The rooms are quite basic, and in urgent need of overhauling. Service during our stay was also... More

My husband and I booked #23 and stayed 4th of July weekend. First night there I seen 4 deer, only my 2nd time ever seeing deer, it was pretty awesome. Pros: Location- view of the ocean & just a short walk to the beach. The innkeeper was helpful/kind. Free parking. Everyone I met was kind. Shower's get hot water right... More

Sorry to say, but this place is run down, and really needs uplifting. Stained carpets, etc. but if you are traveling, and just want to sleep over, this is comfortable, and a very good spot in regards to the ocean and a handy dinner place next door.

I booked this hotel (maybe 2 weeks in advance) to take my mum out and explore the area. the moment we checked in, we realized what a mistake we did! Our entire Monterey/Big Sur experience was ruined by staying here. And we paid a lot to get this room. Pros: nothing (literally) Cons: the heater in the room didn't work,... More

I made the mistake of not booking a hotel in advance and Ended up at the beachcomber inn. I am typically not picky about where I stay as long as the place is clean, comfortable and I feel safe. The beachcomber is not any of these things. We paid over $160 for one night in a filthy room. I knew... More

Don't expect too much leisurely comfort at this hotel. Most rooms need a complete renovation. The TV is outdated. There is no cable or satellite TV. On a positive note, our bed was very comfortable. I believe location is this hotel's best selling point. There is a continental breakfast every morning included in the rate with a good selection of... More

Ditto....SOMEONE WHO CARES NEEDS TO BUY THIS HOTEL! This is probably the most beautiful spot in the area, and the owners have let this turn into an absolute dive. Fortunately, we asked to see rooms before we checked in--we had stayed here a few times 20 years ago when Bob and Arlene managed it, and it was adequate (not really... More

I have stayed at this motel and it is very basic though functional. Cons: Very dirty carpets, lots of patches inside the bathroom, takes forever to get hot water especially if you are in the upstairs unit, limited hours to check in. no one to greet you at the front office as it is closed during the day, no microwave...

I will say this hotel does have potential to cozy & unique.I was highly disappointed in my room,it was described as a beachside bed n breakfast resort. It is beachside but absolutely distgusting once inside the room. My room smelled musky,the carpet looked like it was from the 60's and had horrible stains all over it. There was no circulation...
