“Lovely and pet friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

This is a nice clean hotel right near the beach. I brought my dogs (bonus points for being pet friendly) and we took some great walks exploring the nearby area. The facilities are pretty basic but the location, hospitality and value are very good.

Great location at an affordable price. The hotel was very clean and pet friendly. We had a room with a little kitchenette with a private porch. I love supporting local and independent businesses. The owner Chong was very friendly and is willing to let you in on beaches that the local tend to keep to themselves. The beach she recommended was secluded and quiet...it felt like the beach was all to ourselves. She grows her own vegetables and runs a small cafe in the hotel. The hotel offers spa services at decent prices where my girlfriend received a relaxing prenatal massage. There is also a fire pit located on the property where you can roast marshmallows meet other travelers. They may even share the fresh abalone they caught earlier that day. All in all a greeat deal and warrants a return trip for me!

This place is relatively cheap for the area so don't expect too much. The rooms are spacious but in dire need of a touch-up. The spa is a hot tub outside that looks as if it hasn't been in use for some time... However, if you just need a place to crash this will do fine.

This motel was touted as a spa with jacuzzi, massage and many more therapies. What it actually was was a converted single story dated motel from the 60's or 70's. It was expensive! We paid $149 for Thursday night and $189 each night for the weekend. And for our money we got a small room plus one bar of soap and one small shampoo for two people for three nights. The floor was swept after the first night but not after that, the towels were dingy, there was no screen in the bathroom window, rust on the toilet plumbing and the paint in the bathroom was bubbled up from water leaking from the ceiling. The room had two fireplaces which sounds great but they were framed electric "fire" heaters. One was placed on top of our dresser and the other one was hung up in the corner of the room with an electric cord that competed with the refrigerator and microwave for an outlet plus the refrigerator and microwave sat in front of the "fire place". The bed was so uncomfortable we were exhausted during the day. We only stayed that long because it was the 4th of July weekend and there was NO place else to stay. WAY too much money for such a poor experience.

This place looked COMPLETELY different than the photo I saw online when I booked it. In fact, we drove right by it on our way for that very reason. The lady who checked us in was very friendly, however, when she said she was airing out our room, I was starting to get skeptical. The room seems like you have gone back in time to the 60's. Everything was OLD. There was even dried nail polish on the floor by the sink. The whole place needs to be painted and the gardens weeded. We also saw that there used to be a pool, but now it is a weed fest.......filled with dirt and weeds.
I will say that the bed, though the linens seemed OLD, was comfortable. That was about the only thing that was positive.
I am surprised that it is called a spa. That name does not fit.

Room Tip: I don't believe any rooms are good. Sorry.

Someone stayed here and didn't like it, so said that positive reviews are fakes. No, people have different experiences and expectations. We stayed here for two nights, at the very last minute at the beginning of abalone season.

My husband looked at the room before deciding to stay. The motel is an old motor-court style - I think people would be misled by "Inn and Spa." There are 22 rooms, all on the first floor. Ours had two queen beds. The room was clearly older but it was by no means dirty. We never turned on the TV so don't know or care if it worked or not. The vanity and sink were in the back of the room, with the WC and shower-tub in a separate room, larger than they usually are with this arrangement. The room key is an actual key on a plastic fob that gives the name and address of the place, as well as the room number, so don't loose it.

Our beds were clean and very comfortable. I'm a stomach-sleeper, so I appreciated the squishy pillow.

Because all the rooms are on the ground floor facing the driveway, you probably don't want to leave the windows open at night. Unfortunately, because our vanity and sink were across the back wall, there was no window there. So we opened the window in the WC to get some fresh air while we slept. Both the room and the WC have separate electric wall heaters, so they warmed up fast when we got up.

We didn't see much sign of a spa, except for the nutritionist who has an office on the grounds, and a closed-off area that looked as though it might be a small pool or jacuzzi.

We paid $89 for our room, which was good value for money.

If you are looking for an "Inn" or resort or spa experience, this isn't the place for you. If you want a basic, comfortable Travelodge or Best Western type of accommodations at a good price, you shouldn't be disappointed.
