The rating on this hotel is too high (3.7 at the time of this review). The outside is unappealing and while the interior is better than it's cover, it's far from impressive. No air conditioning and breakfast is minimal. Decent place to stop in between destinations, but for sleep only. I'm not sure if there's anything better in the immediate... More

Walls a little thin-everything else was great. The beds were very clean and crisp with lots of new, extremely comfy pillows and fluffy down comforters.The cool breeze came in thru the windows just right-really nice. Just steps away from a beautiful, peaceful and accessible beach-and moments away from beached filled w elephant seals that you can watch from the cliffs.... More

Rooms are large with king sized bed. There is no safe in the room. Whilst it advertises a sea view, you can only just see the sea as there are buildings blocking most of the view. Rooms are tired and bathroom could do with new shower facilities. We could also hear guests talking in neighbouring rooms. Plenty of parking.

Great location and good value for money. Breakfast was included although there wasn't a very big choice. It was better than no breakfast. The room was huge and very clean and comfortable. Perfect location for a visit to the Hearst Castle.

We stayed two nights, and it was nice. Our room was really spacious and cosy, at the first floor, equipped with fridge and microwave. Located at sea side, we could hear the waves during the night, and did not get at all the traffic from highway (anyway not that much at night). We reached the beach in two minutes walk,... More

Building doesn't look like much, but the room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good, with a nice variety to choose from and sitting out on the patio was nice. We had an upstairs room and could see the ocean from it and hear the sound of the surf - just a little. It was a short walk down to... More

The room was comfortable. It could be a problem in winter when really cold as the wall heater is ancient. The pool IS heated! I enjoyed it. The breakfast is all sugar and carbs, but that's becoming the norm. The bed was quite comfortable. The TV was big but I didn't turn it on.

Really helpful staff and efficient. The room was lovely with a view of the ocean. Easy to find and some nice places to eat nearby. Breakfast was taken outdoors so that was nice and there was a decent choice of foods. Some items had to be restocked but not before having to ask though. Excellent situation for Hearst Castle and...

Excellent place to stay just off the highway and only a short drive from Hearst castle. The staff we're friendly, the views beautiful view and the rooms were clean and well furnished. the basic but nice free breakfast was an excellent bonus. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here for 1 night as a stop to visit Hearst Castle. In retrospect we wish we'd stayed another day as its very close to the beach, the area is quiet, and the room we had on the top floor was large, bright, and comfortable. The breakfast area is outside, and the breakfast a bit minimal.
