The actual hotel compared to the picture was totally different but they were doing construction for upgrades. The place was a little dated, but the indoor pool and spa made up for it. Location for us was perfect. Close to Hearst Castle and the sea lions.

We stayed in the motel for one night on our roadtrip, on off-peak season before christmas holidays. We found it from booking.com.

It was warm and cozy in our room. It was a very big room, lots of space, clean, comfy bed and the shower was hot. I believe I... More

The place was OK, but in need of renovation! Also, the water tasted terrible, so bring your own! Bed was comfortable and the hotel registration was easy. The property was large with a central courtyard.
