Location amazing - decking straight onto a great beach. Rooms very clean. Towels plentiful, fluffy and clean. Comfortable beds. Yes bathrooms little small but I wasn't spending all my time in there so wasn't an issue. Coffee provided in rooms. Sadly we only stayed 1 night would of happily stayed longer.

I rated this property as very good because it is dated and the bathrooms are very small. With that being said, EVERYTHING else is EXCELLENT! The beach is literally right out the door. The views are incredible. The front desk and housekeeping staff are very helpful and friendly. If you have a big group, there is a 3 bedroom house... More

We recently stayed five nights. Location was the best around being right on the beach and still only a very few miles to the redwoods. Rooms were clean and spacious enough for the two of us. It was wonderful to sit on the deck in the evenings watching the sun go down and then get up the next morning to... More

We love the beach and this motel definitely caught my eye. We got the last 2 bed room available for that night and I am thrilled we did. It is an older property but our room seemed updated, new bedspreads, bathroom fixtures, mattresses were comfy, it was clean. Walking out the door to that view was worth every penny! You... More

We had a seaside room. It was very simple, old fashioned, but everything was clean. You have to remind, that wecare talking anout a Motel. The location is ideal to make a break on the way to SF or to the north. In the city you find some restaurants and a supermarket, so everything comes as expected. We would come... More

When you step out into the deck you are literally steps from the beach. It's beautiful and peaceful. The day we were there was extremely windy but we were protected from the wind where pr room was (#10). I gave it a four because the rooms are dated, but they are clean and theu have a,kurig coffee machine in the... More

Place is clean and on beach. Beds are pretty comfortable and is quite at night. Beautiful sandy beach.No frig or micowave in room. Sliders opens up to combined deck. Nothing fancy but clean. No pool. We would have stayed anither night but booked up.

The value of this place is the closeness to the beach. It's a sixty-second walk way, at worst. But the price (either room type) should let you know what you are getting for your money. It is what one would expect for non-resort prices. Basic, clean, older, a bit worn-out, but functional. For our room (budget end) a fridge was... More

Ask for an ocean view room. My Mom could watch the beach activity just sitting on the edge of her bed. The rooms are 30 feet from the beach. Yes, the doorknobs are very sticky and almost impossible to open because of the salt air, but you can sure hear the waves crash when you open the window. Breakfast is... More

This motel is about the proximity to the beach. The room was clean but our room didn't lock properly and a few more extras would have made a world of difference; more than one pillow per person, a hook for the hand towel. If you want to be feet from the beach this is the place. Get firewood and have... More
