Just adding to the very positive reviews this property has received over the years. There really isn't much more to add. The location is near perfect......a short steep hill for walkers is all that stands between the motel and perfection. The rooms are large, airy and clean with a well supplied kitchenette. The upper story balconies have a good ocean view. The Pacific is three short blocks away. It is in a quiet neighborhood. Although you can hear the occasional train horn, the noise is not loud enough and does not last long enough to bother sleep. The managers are delightful people who treat their clientele as valued customers.
The one issue that causes me not to rate the property as excellent is the WiFi service. It goes from good to bad to non-existent all in the space of a few minutes. It is better than no service but not much. Solely for that reason, I rate Moonlight Beach Motel as very good. We will return again soon!!!!!!
