Nice hotel along highway 1, stopped there for one night while driving the beautiful west coast. The rooms is a little bit outdated, but still a ok hotel. There is also a popular spot nearby Where you can watch sealions.

We stayed there one night on Memorial weekend. Prices were $30 to $40 cheaper than nearby hotels, that is the upside and why it gets four stars instead of three. We stayed there because we attended a nighttime event at Hearst Castle and did not want to drive to Paso Robles after a night of drinking and eating. The hotel... More

Stay here if you must but you will not get value for your money. I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The staff at the front desk and restaurant were rude - must have had the same teacher. One would think the customer was the enemy. Seems to be run by poorly educated and even ignorant people who are disrespectful... More

This place is awesome. All rooms face the Ocean. They all have a patio ground units for sure with chairs. Room is a little dated but was comfy. The onsite bar is great and has a pool table and the onsite restaurant has awesome quality food and choices. The onsite Mini Mart has pretty much whatever your hankering for. The... More

While the Lodge is more of a motel than a hotel, it provides clean rooms and great amenities, including a restaurant, gym and even a convenience store. Of course the real kicker is that ALL OF THE ROOMS FACE THE OCEAN!!! Not to mention that you are only about a 10 minute drive from Hearst Castle. The rates are reasonable,... More

This is a great little place to stay, nice room and facilities. Hotel staff were very pleasant. There are a few dining options in the area which is handy and a lovely ocean front to walk down to. We enjoyed breakfast at the lodge's restaurant and that was a good meal, the menu was extensive. Would happily stay again.

When I first got there to check in room . They put us in a room that had trash and had not been cleaned out yet . And then asked us to move rooms when we had already drove four hours to get there and just wanted to relax already . Other than that the stay there was nice for... More

Everything was clean, but old. The floor squeaked with every step, made me feel sorry for anyone below us. The bed was lumpy, so not very comfortable. The view from the upper floor was great, but with all the traffic noise, I wish I stayed across the street, closer to the ocean, I may have been able to hear the... More

Terrible! Dirty, aweful sheets and towels, hard mattress, bathroom full of mold. Moved rooms, squeeky floor, and same linens, very bad. Got money back and left. Would never recommend that dump! I don't need perfect, but do require clean.

Our was clean, and comfortable. The Lodge is in a great location where you can see the ocean and right off the Highway. The staff at the front desk were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great advice on things to do and places to shop.
