I'm reviewing this place a second time because my second stay was so much different simply because the room you get matters so much. This time I got a an ocean view studio and it was well worth it. If you're going to spend any time in your room, it is very relaxing to have an oceanfront balcony. Having an... More

We stayed at the hotel during our daughter's graduation from Cal Poly. Not only was the price right but the location was incredible! Right on the beach and walking distance to all the restaurants and bars. Stay here and enjoy the beach, walk the pier AND make you way up for wine tasting, only 15 minutes away.

Interesting place, as it seems part motel/part condo since many rooms are actually owned by others. My mom has been coming here for years, and this was my first time to join her and I'm glad I did. Room pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. Comes with a little kitchen and a nice sized deck. Hit Trader Joes for cheese... More

Because I really, really wanted to love this place. I have a special place in my heart for these old, original hotels, especially the ones on the beach that snatched up prime real estate back in the day and have managed to hold on. This place is absolutely spotless and well-cared for. Our reservation went off without a hitch, even... More

This is a clean, no-frills hotel, well located, price so-so. If you have a pet, I suppose this is the place to come, but otherwise, nothing special, although I did notice my room smells a bit like dog.

The room was small and the beds were uncomfortable. we had an apartment style and the beds folded down off of the... More
