We've stayed here 5 times, it's always pleasant, staff is nice, rooms are clean, perfectly located between Big Sur and San Luis Obispo. My only suggestion to the owners is...please repaint the jacuzzi! It looked so bad I could'nt get in it : (

Room was clean and beds comfortable, room size a little small and no air con but really couldn't expect much else at the price paid. Shower really only suits small people, water really hot!! Walls are a little on the thin side - sounded like a herd of elephants above us and could hear a tv through one wall and... More

We were passing through on our way up the California coast and needed a place for one night. We visited the Hearst Castle and Elephant seals during the day and did not want to attempt an evening drive up the Big Sur region. The hotel OK for one night, clean, quite, good location. We did see the cleaning staff well... More

We choose this place on our road trip because we didn`t want to rush the drive down route 1. It was budget priced and had average ratings. It was clean, comfortable and just down the road from Hearst Castle. We did not use the pool as it didn`t look great but everything else was good. As a Motel for 1... More

Me and my husband stayed here because we were looking for a motel that would take pets so we could take our 2 dogs to the beach for the weekend. The price was alittle steep for what you get (the room is small for a single queen room) But this is the busy summer season and still alot cheaper than... More

I don't know what else to add... We stayed here. We got flea bites on our legs. And yes, I saw a couple of the little blood suckers on my leg. When I complained to the front desk, they said there was not any avail rooms to move us to. When I asked if we could at least get a... More

This hotel (motel) is located in the middle of nowhere, with just a few other hotels close to it. But the rooms were great: clean, fresh, new, modern and large. Enough parking spaces available and although there is no aircon available, you won't need it (at night it is quite cold outside). Staff is friendly.

Its an ok good hotel for the value. It is a little dated and the side walks there seems to roll up at about the time the sun sets. However the rooms are clean, the bed was comfy and all in all..I felt l got good value...I would stay there again.

A simple but neat hotel suited for passing through (no Breakfast!). Unfortunately there was a power shut down on arrival, but the receptionist was very kind to help us out when in need. The only thing we didnt like was the low shower (shoulder hight). Oh and go for a room on the second floor, those are quieter.

Although the exterior is not impressive, the rooms are very roomy and nice. They seem to have been recently updated. Beds are comfortable, room includes a fridge and good size TV. All except a few of the rooms open to a large grassy interior courtyard, so there is no noise from the road at all. Free wifi worked well. My... More
