Good location where to spend a night between SF and LA, room was clean and functional, owner/receptionist was helpful and he allowed us to do some printing we needed for our trip. Also we were given a 10% off coupon to use in a restaurant nearby, which was handy, and we enjoyed that too. Recommended!

The hotel is good when compared to a few in the area. The furniture and bathrooms have been updated. However, the hotel structure and architecture is limited to its original design. So the walls allow more noise from neighbors to filter through. For example, we could hear our next door neighbor's TV. Throughout the night we could hear our neighbors... More

The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms had a fridge and microwave. Picnic tables are on the grounds so you can take advantage of the great weather. There is a small store next door to get all kinds of goodies. Hearst Castle is a stone's throw away. Front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. Great value! Could... More

Simple older motel, didn't expect anything special and got it . slept well showered and got on about my business. Could hear the guy snoring next door, but I probably snore louder.. Nothing great but OK in a pinch. nothing fancy.

a group of us came from Auburn Ca for the week end on motorcycles,hubby & I had room 224 upstairs it had a balcony and small patio which was very nice since the rooms have no air conditioning so we left the sliding glass door open for the sea breeze, the beds & pillows were very soft and cushy, we...

Stay at your own risk!!!! Management will not take responsibilty for the actions of their staff. We asked for a late check out and the front desk manager Jose was kind enough to let us check out one hour late at 12:00pm. We came back to the room at 11:45am and our room had been cleaned out. My wife and... More

My husband and I were taking the PCH and decided to stop by in this place because it was cheap. Sincerely, it was pretty good for the price. There was no air conditioning but it was not needed. Restaurants were a walking distance and the pool was cool. Bed and shower were clean which is very important to me.

Good clean rooms, though a bit dated. Clean and comfy bed. Slow WIFI. Good mini mart 2 doors down, good café 3 doors down serves great breakfast. This hotel is really handy for Hearst Castle and the Elephant seal colony nearby

Only accommodation on the trip I didn't book and I think I've been promoted to chief booker. If you want the absolute basic, this is the place for you, right down to the ice machine with unusual noises. The hotel itself was clean enough and the reception staff spoke the minimum amount of words required to book you in. If... More
