My partner and I stayed here and fell in love with this place, and Montezuma in general. The ocean view from our balcony and room on the 2nd floor (room $5) was amazing. Room was very nice, spacious and cute (kind of cabiny, dark wood). Lots of windows for the backyard/ocean view letting in lots of light but curtains provide darkness and privacy when you want it. A/C and wifi was also a nice touch. Sound of the ocean is prominent but very peaceful. Big, beauitiful grassy backyard with plenty of hammocks anc chairs and if you walk up to the water there are some rocks with a calm tidal pool that is swimmable (the Pacific seemed a bit too rough to swim in when we went, unless you're a surfer!) You'll effortlessly take amazing photos, even right at the hotel. Directly across the street is a path that will lead you to the Montezuma waterfall which is also beautiful and you can swim there as well. Ori at the hotel is very cool, friendly and helpful - along with the rest of the staff. Good security at the hotel late at night too. They serve really good breakfast (and maybe light lunch but don't believe they serve dinner) on the ground level. Short, walkable distance to the center of town which is also great and you can keep walking along the shore for hours as there are beautiful beaches after beaches (and a little forest). Definitely one of the best places you can stay, great deal for the $ and we'll definitely be back!
