We had a downstairs view room which was ok. We were looking mostly at the people walking by as the room is a few steps lower than the sidewalk. Don't get me wrong, you can see the ocean ... just not real well. If I were to go back I would opt for an upstairs room for a better view over the walk way and head lands ... plus you don't have to listen to people walking around above you. They had a great breakfast layout with bagels, pastries, fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, juice, coffee & tea. The motel is right on the PCH so it was a great location since we were driving all the way up the coast. Mendocino is not too far south, the drive thru tree is not too far north and there is horse back riding very close by ... so there is plenty to do. Over all I would recommend it and would return.
