For the price, this was a nice place to stay. Pros-was very clean, updated interior, comfortable bed, frig,microwave, and big TV w/premium channels, and friendly staff. Cons- door right next to first double bed as you walk in, bathroom really small (but updated and clean), and no COFFEE maker(huge deal), and no hair dryer.

Hard to find because motel sign was missing. However, Siri gave us directions. Check in was quick and easy recalling my reservation. Parked in front of our unit. Outstanding job renovating 50s era cabana. Modern amenities such as large flatscreen TV microwave and refrigerator. Crown molding, laminate floor, tiled bathroom with modern fixtures. Free WiFi nice chair with large desk.... More

This is an OK motel - clean, quiet and its got some good amenities like a fridge etc. The staff is also very friendly and nice. However, some of the rooms have got a bit of a weird smell to them and the motel also hosts some long term patrons - which isn't exactly what you want as a tourist.... More

We stayed here just to sleep one night on our roaptrip on Highway 1. The price was good but the motel is really simple. The room was clean and have a fridge but it smelled smoke. The other guests at the motel seemed to live there permanently which you dont like as a tourist. They were a bit special. Wifi... More

I stayed here in May 2015 for four nights. I booked it about five months before I went to the U.S. because I wanted to know where I was staying for my marathon. It's not the best and not without its problems, but the owner-managers (I think it's a family) are clearly trying hard to make it the best place... More

After having the rug pulled out from under me by my future landlord for 2 weeks-after I had given my 30 day notice from my previous apartment complex 2 weeks prior to the bad news, I've been hotel/motel/camping/car crashing until then. I'm here now, typing this in room #5 and have to say it's a lot better than I expected.... More

This motel was very old, smelly and dirty. The pillows were so disgusting that we ending up putting our own beach towels on them to sleep on. We couldn't wait to leave, in fact we left at 7am and left the keys in the drop box. I do not recommend this motel is was way, way, way too expensive for... More

Positives: Both the young man who handled the phone reservation and the young woman who checked us in were kind, polite and efficient. The room and bathroom were clean and so was the fridge and microwave. The bed had a good mattress. The room was quiet. The room rate was very reasonable. Negatives The outside of the motel would benefit... More

The good: There were no bedbugs. The bedding was clean, and the bathroom was clean. The front desk staff was friendly and professional. The price: $50/night The bad: Everything else except the above was filthy. (not dirty - filthy). Most of the carports were filled with old furniture and the entire property looked like an episode from Sanford and Son.... More

We had the handicap room and it was spacious, quiet, and comfortable. The bathroom was one big shower and completely tiled on all surfaces. The king-sized bed was clean and comfortable. The furnishings were coordinated if a bit retro. The property is really something out of the 60s with carports for each unit and a central court with small islands.... More
