Me and my bf left our motel room, because it was disgusting when we got there. But Jane at Sunny Cove Lodge gave us a nice and cozy room for very less cost!! We will definitely come back here. P.S the beach is walking distance!

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights. I found it very comfortable, clean, and in a great location. Within walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Jane the manager was very sweet and helpful! I will definitely be back.

I thought I was going to Ocean Echo and not Sunny Cove. I'm from Santa Cruz and I thought that I was going to the motel behind Sunny Cove. I'm glad I made the mistake. Sunny Cove has redone there rooms and with a flat screen TV, a kitchen you can sit in and nice vanity (I want the mirror)... More

We happened upon the Sunny Cove Motel by chance 25 years ago. Since that time we have returned numerous times. We have dogs and they are welcome. Even better, right down the block is an awesome dog-friendly beach. There is a nice pool on the groiunds that the kids, and now grandkids, enjoy. We usually stay in one of the... More

My family and I just back from a week at the Sunny Cove. This place is perfect if you are looking for quirky and simple. The manager Jane is a real gem. Please read the other reviews here as they are mostly accurate. The most important thing to say about Sunny Cove is that it's not a luxury hotel. If... More

The motel is very nice. Big room with small kitchen and bathroom. Jane was very helpful with directions and answered all our questions. The only two negative things we have to say about the place is that one of the towels was dirty (a very obvious footprint) and that the heater made noise during the night which made it hard... More

My daughter and I are driving from Eugene to San Diego and just stopped overnight at the Sunny Cove. We needed clean and affordable, we got much more! The rooms are fresh and clean. The motel itself is really cute. The clerk at the desk gave us an even better rate than she quoted over the phone. She also had... More

We stayed here for its location, which is worthy of noting: it is steps away, literally, from the ocean, as the aptly-named Sunny Cove Motel is down the street from a lovely cove that welcomes a late-day swim when the fog has lifted. The rooms were clean and the staff courteous, but it is a small, independently-owned and maintained place.... More

If you want a kitchenette with no plates, no spoons, but just 4 bowls and a few other broken utensils, then this place is for you... If Internet access is important for you, don't go there (i did not get any, while it was super important for me work to get online to complete a work project). If all that... More

Not sure where to begin. First we were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to the beach. You walk less than 100 yards to a beautiful private like beach that is cove. You can swim, relax, and skim board. Jane was a very gracious host. She worked very hard for us when our car ended up in the shop... More
