I stayed here years ago when my children were younger. I was excited to bring my teenage soon back. What had been a quirky but nice property was now showing significant signs of deferred maintenance. Previously stayed in an upstairs king room that was very nice - this was a double-double across the parking lot. While there were some signs... More

We recently stayed at the Lighthouse in while attending the Legends of the Autobahn and Laguna Seca vintage races. We were very disappointed in the room. While it had "good bones" and a nice layout, they had let it deteriorate badly. There was mildew in the bathroom, the rugs original patter/color competed evenly with the stains, and the furniture should... More

I expected a bed & breakfast.it was a poor excuse for a motel. I have had better in Best Western, La Quinta & many others. It doesn't deserve to be on a list with "bed & breakfast. The breakfast was ok but not anything special. not how I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday.

Quick walk to the shoreline and lighthouse. Stayed in the junior suite and the room was nice. What kept us from a "5" were the stains on the carpet or the carpet pattern that looked like stains. The room otherwise was clean and quiet. There has been refurbishing so the carpet issue may be moot. The morning breakfast was delightful... More

Yep, we are here for a night , took a chance on the name your price option on Priceline and thought we were getting an upscale room but it was the lodge. Totally deceptive! Run down rooms with old furniture,painting needed, the pool was not heated, jacuzzi had green water. How can they keep getting away with this??? Cheap pool... More

The on-line photos of this place look amazing, but those are taken at the Cottages, not the Lodge. We stayed at the Lodge. Kind of Motel-8 with comfy beds. Breakfast was a disappointment with scrambled eggs, white and wheat toast, bananas, apples, juice, raisin brand and corn flakes. The dining area is run down. After I did more research, I... More

My family stayed for one night, and we enjoyed it. Rooms clean, food good, and you can hear the ocean. The only thing I am requesting is a screen door on the slider for the back door. are favorite part was how close we were near the Lighthouse and the ocean.

We were excited to books this hotel again. Orbitzs shows only the cottage property photos, so you assume you are booking a room in the cottages. When we arrived at the hotel we were told that they, the hotel, could assign you to any room. I expressed how upset I was because the lodge property is equal to a Motel... More

The hotel is below average. Not worth the price they charge. Stayed in a room that was nicely decorated, although old. It could be charming if things were taken care of. Part of the wall paper was peeling. The drain did not work properly. There is no air conditioning which was not a problem the first night but the second... More

I was expecting a nightmare after reading the reviews but I am happy to say, we loved everything about our stay. The front desk people were terrific and let us pick from 3 rooms after I expressed concern about cleanliness (thanks to the reviews). The room we chose was clean and roomy, it was quiet and the bed was super... More
