I had a GREAT stay at The Moonlight Beach Motel!! Its a very cosy place in a great location and the managers Debra and George are extremely nice. I was surprised to see how big the rooms were - the size of a 2 room apartment with fully equipped kitchen, a big balcony with a fantastic ocean view, nice bathrooms and a big bedroom. Everything you need is there (including wireless internet and tv), its clean and everyone in the staff are friendly. On top of that you have a cosy bbq area just outside the window and coffee and muffins in the morning are included in the rate.
Locationwise it couldnt be better! In just 2 minutes you are on the moonlight beach or on the coast highway 101 where you find lots of small and cosy shops, cafes and restaurants. The neighbourhood is so charming, with its small streets and beautyful creatively build houses. If you like surfing, this is the place. The Lofty Bean is just around the corner where you can get a 2$ cup of organic coffee, and very close is also the wholefoods market that offers very good food.
I stayed at the moonlight beach motel for 8 days - 6 of them alone, and I was as a woman not uncomfortable walking the streets alone after dark in this neighbourhood, its a friendly place.
I highly recommend this place, its a very, very good motel, the rates are better than other hotels/motels in this area and you dont want to miss having your own balcony with a pacific ocean view.
