GORGEOUS views, and the staff were super helpful!! We had our wedding in Mill Bay and some of our guests stayed there, and all of them had nothing but great things to say. It's very quiet and peaceful, rooms are a good size!

I booked 3 rooms for myself and 2 out of town guests who were attending my son's wedding nearby. There were also a few guests at our son' wedding who also stayed here. Can't speak for them but for us it was a great experience. Sure, it's out of date somewhat but who cares. We were there to rest and... More

This motel/hotel is a place we use ONLY when our daughter who lives close, has an event and her beds are full. It really needs to be updated. It has n a lovely view however a lot of trees are too overgrown. The rooms are large, clean, and have a fireplace in them which would be cozy if it was... More

We spent our first night in room 7, a few steps down from the parking lot. It was like an old quaint little apartment. The windows were Huge and opened wide! The flowers in front of the rooms patio were very pretty. There were flowers everywhere! It had no phones in number 18 where we spent the rest of our... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for a month and because of how dirty the place was both my girlfriend and I picked up a bacteria that is a direct cause from unclean living space and has left us scarred all over. Just look at the pictures see for yourself.

We were attending a family wedding at the Brentwood College and many of our family stayed at this motel. It has a spectacular view and is in walking distance of the college, a marina with a fabulous restaurant (Bridgeman's) and a Mill Bay Shopping Center with a variety of stores. We had a king size bed in a room on... More

Our family of about 25 people stayed here for a Bentwood Collage wedding. the motel is rustic, clean & comfortable. Every room is unique. We had a big family lunch on the premises & we couldn't have asked for a better setting, the ocean view is breathtaking & peaceful. staff was pleasant & helpful :)

We just had a baseball tournament in the area and half of the team stayed here and the other half at another location (mostly because of fears about some of the reviews). Do not be scared of the bad reviews, this hotel is great! The half that stayed at the other place really missed out! The rooms are large, the... More
