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

We loved the location and price of this little motel. It was older and musty smelling, breakfast wasn't great (packets of oatmeal/fruit) but overall, the room was decent (which all you really do is sleep there) it was the beach location that did it for us! It was a clean beach, pretty quiet, not a lot of people, perfect views... More

Although there was one drawback (noted later), this is an excellent property. Step out the sliding-glass doors, walk a handful of steps and you're on the beach where you can walk long distances. Good beds, hot shower with thirsty towels, and (in our room) separation of the two queen beds by the bathroom provided a bit more space. Helpful front-office... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel! Right on the ocean, literally minutes from the Redwood National Park! Beautiful sunsets with sand dollars all over the beach! The room was smallish, but clean and updated. No frig, "breakfast" was instant oatmeal packets and apples. But if no-frills is OK with you, it was a good value for a terrific... More

We stayed at this quaint older beach motel while visiting the redwoods and this motel was the perfect end to a perfect day. The front desk clerks were very helpful and had great personalities. The room was small but very clean. I really liked how we could just step out of our room and walk to the beach. A plus... More

This is an older motel with smaller rooms but it was VERY clean! The location is unbeatable - just outside of town and only steps from the ocean's edge. At low tide sand dollars can be seen and picked up everywhere! If you want clean and affordable, this is the place for you! The room had heat but no a/c... More

This place is pretty good. It is a bit noisy being right on Hwy 101. If you stay here make sure you get an Ocean View room, you can get right to the ocean from your room, that is the best part. No mini fridge or microwave but if you need a microwave you can use the one by the... More

We stayed in room 1 a couple weeks ago while hiking in redwood. nice stay right on the beach only problem it was too chilly to keep the sliding door open and enjoy the sound of the waves. Also the screen door did not lock and being on the first floor was not 100% ok with not having locked door.... More
