Ranging from no AC to an ice machine that does not work and an indifferent staff, you have a choice in things to dislike. Unlike most BW Motels you even have to pay for breakfast. The internet is at best erratic and when functional cuts you off in a few hours where you have to reconnect. The coke machine was... More

After driving the whole day from Monterrey, we spent the night here. The room is perfect! Clean room, large and confortable beds, different pillows to choose and very quiet. There is a cafe with good selection for meals with a reasonable price

We had travelled by motorcycle from Vegas to here and were impressed upon our arrival! Clean, beautiful beach, the restaurant was very accommodating and the staff was excellent! Worth the money and be sure to get a beach front room.

I've stayed here many times over the past 20 years and have never been disappointed. The location is superb, right on the beach. Excellent meals served in the onsite restaurant or through room service. Very courteous staff. Highly recommended!!

Stayed one night before going to Hearst Castle. The location was perfect - but the room was not. We were in the older section of the hotel The rugs were stained,and the dresser was dusty. The upholstered chairs were so soft that you had to sit on pillows to use the table in between the chairs. The only saving grace... More

We love staying here every chance we get. Especially when we are visiting Hearst Castle just up the road and when we're walking on the beach collecting the heart rocks that is a must. We always stay in the very front ocean view the walks down on the beach are just perfect can't ask for anything more. K❤️F

This hotel was very comfortable. The location was great. The fan on the heater in the room was quite noisy. We had to turn it off when we slept, but then we were able to hear the waves crashing onto the shore which was nice. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was not included like... More

Great hotel to stay at if you are in the area and on a mid budget. We had a king room which was clean and the bed was very comfy (in the pictures it does not look so good!) We tried to upgrade but unfortunately the staff could not help us. I would recommend getting a king room with an... More

Definitely wouldn't stay again. The front desk staff was very friendly, but the room itself was very dark and outdated with a dank smell. The price was really high for accommodations of this quality. There was also no good place to eat close by. We did enjoy the fires on the beach.
