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

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

Clean rooms at reasonable prices. Across the road fro the beach. Coffe maker, fridge and microwavei n room. Discount coupons for restaurants. You must read their brochure for a good laugh. (4 mispellings that are hilarious).

We were looking for an affordable location not too far from Big Sur and San Luis Obispo. This is a nice one, good relation quality/price, rooms are clean, fully equipped and the hotel is located in a nice area, not far from the beach. Breakfast wasn't included though.
