We had spent a week in salinas taking care of family business and couldn't make it home in one day. We were exhausted. We stopped here and talked to jerry, the gentleman checking us in, when a very friendly cat introduced herself. Jerry said she runs the place and will send the night with you if she gets in your...

I needed an inexpensive overnight on the way to Southern California, and the price was right at this hotel, so I gave it a try. VERY pleasantly surprised by the nice room, large and clean. Comfy king-sized bed (with plenty of pillows!) and a very large bathroom with lots of counter space, including a makeup area with a 3-way mirror.... More

This an excellent property. We have stayed in other motels in this area and this one is outstanding. The breakfast was a better than some because they also offered some hot items (Breakfast Burrito, Biscuits & Gravy, waffles). Many motels simply offer coffee, pastries, waffles, etc. The rooms are also excellent.

Great Staff, great room, wonderful breakfast. As we loaded our car in the rain I somehow lost my car key. Since my husband was driving I did not notice until I received a call 100 miles down the road from a very concerned staff member who immediately mailed it to my next destination. We definitely will use this hotel again.

Everyone there was very nice! Rooms cleam decor is avergae but the beds are amazingly comfy! Parking was good and the jacuzi was a big hit! Breakfast could have used some breakfast meat IE bacon or ham. Boiled eggs were available. Waffle maker was great! Lobby is being remodeled and looks like it is going to be gorgeous! Grand piano...

Great facility, room furnishings were excellent. We were traveling through a relatively small town and were prepared for the "worst" Pleasantly surprised, this place is NICE. Especially clean, nice mattress, great place. Highly recommended.

Clean room, comfortable bed, very fair price. Stayed in Santa Maria because the hotels in Pismo and Avila Beach were way too expensive and rated lower than this hotel. We are very glad of our decision. We even rate the shower a 5/5! Ha! The free breakfast buffet room was/is under construction so they feed everyone in a hotel room.... More

Spent a night here on our way from NorCal to SoCal and we were pleased with our choice. Check in was a breeze, the staff was nice, and the room was clean. The breakfast was basic but well stocked and sufficient to get the day started before hitting the road. The pool was clean and the wifi was strong and... More
