The rooms are nice and clean, everything you need is there and there are several options for having dinner around. So certainly for the good prices you can hardly go wrong on this one when driving eg the pacific coast highway. As breakfast was not included, we drove south and had a great breakfast at Sandy's Deli & Bakery the... More

Stopped here for 1 night while driving up the coast. Gotta tell you, for the $70 we paid..can't get any better. We had a room on the 2nd floor with an ocean view. We went to the beach across the street and watched the sunset. Beautiful. The room itself was big and clean ! The lodge has a gym,pool, restaurant,... More

The hotel is located almost in the middle between Los Angeles and San Fancisco on scenic oute 1. It has a large reception desk where you can also,find information brochures about the area and you can already peek at the menu of the attached restaurant. The room we had was a decent size for a short stay with a patio... More

Very comfortable hotel, clean and quiet, with very good restaurant with breakfast included. Ample parking. Located directly across to the beach with great sunset views. Conveniently located to Hearst Castle.

Stayed here whilst travelling from San Fran to LA. Excellent, clean and spacious. Shop, bar restaurant, pool on site everything you need. Pleasant staff. Great view of the sea, lovely beach area within walking distance. Would highly recommend.

Rooms were clean, not new but nice, Internet was slow, an older Lodge but still comfortable. The rooms don't have A/C but night time temps drop due to being on the ocean front, day time temps can be warm

Had a great 1 night stay, wished we had booked 2 nights!! Room was very comfortable, clean and the whale watching was an added bonus! Restaurant and bar very good and convenient! Hearst Castle just up the road and the beach just across the street.

Clean and nice lodge with spacey rooms. Little but heated pool, workout area and washing machines. The restaurant though is truly overpriced and with poor service. It" s perfect for a visiit of Hearstcastle or the gorgeous landscape at pacific coastal highway. Next city/village is three miles away. In surrounding of the hotel you only find several other hotels and... More

Stayed here one night. Check in was easy and the desk personnel were nice and professional. The room was old and very cramped. Had to sleep with the patio door open due to no air conditioning.while the evening temperature was cool without the door open it would be too warm. The bar and grill employee acted as if we were...
