This hotel needs some serious, serious upgrading! It was a huge disappointment to have selected and paid for an ocean front room, only to have the direct view from the second floor significantly obscured by Nick's nightclub and restaurant across the street; technically we had a view because you could see the ocean if you stood at the window and...

We snagged the last available room here on a Saturday night but it was just what we needed-two beds, no smoking.The ocean view and window that opened to the sound of the surf were bonuses. The furnishings and bathroom tile were a bit aged but sound and clean. Even on a Saturday night our room was perfectly quiet. There are... More

We stayed there for one night. Our room was average in size, the bathroom and everything else quite clean. The staff are really compliant and friendly. We had difficulties with the Wifi and they fixed it instantly at 11 p.m. Good service, average place, overpriced.

Motel is clean, safe and owners were accommodating. 2 adults stayed for 4 nights. Motel is 3 levels, secure lock on doors, security cameras, 1 elevator, free open parking or easy street areas, and all over outdoor lighting. Room with ocean view is... More

We stayed here for 1 night in The later part of August. Easy to find, great price for being close to San Francisco and not paying 2 to 3 times the amount. Free parking. Ocean view room (king) was average sized. Accommodations are a little dated, but we were not in the room long so it was of no great... More

We didn't make reservations so called at the last minute and got a room with a king and pullout sofa. The pullout sofa was pretty worn and uncomfortable. Me and one of the kids sank to the middle and could feel the bar across the bed under our backs all night. The location is decent, but we really didn't take... More

Good enough hotel near the waters edge. Clean bed and linens. Not the best amenities. Towels and washcloths thin. Shower nice and hot. One of the largest rooms we've stayed in. Plan on walking up either of the cliffs to the side. Plan on plenty of time to watch people fishing and surfing. Up close and personal with the ocean... More

First of all, ocean view rooms are a must! You can hear and see the waves and THAT is the draw! This hotel itself is old a run down, moldy bathtub, bathroom smelled of mold and mildew, but bed was comfy and linens were clean. The desk guy tried to jack the price up, but I called him on it..and... More

This is a good choice for a reasonably priced stay near the beach. Featuring a view of the beach for those willing to pay a little extra, you will enjoy the sound of the surf and a location very near the beach. The property seems to be undergoing an upgrade. The level of finish is adequate but nothing spectacular. I... More

This place is a great value. You can listen to the ocean all night with your window open. Ocean views from second and third floor rooms. Clean and safe. I stay here about once a month in the summer and they are always doing upgrade as they can so it keeps getting better and better.
