Booked this hotel for an overnight stay following a day driving down the coast from Monterey. Ended booking here due to the unavailability of other hotels in this area, and also due to the high cost of hotels in Santa Barbara.
The drive from Monterey down the coast is fantastic and it was nice to know we could complete this drive with no worries of finding a hotel later (i.e. taking in all the scenery without rushing).
The location of the hotel is about right in terms of a driving day (we included the 17 mile drive prior to leaving Monterey).
Hotel easily found. It had an outdoor pool although we didn't use it others were. Check in no problem and staff very helpful. Room was fine, large with two queen beds.
The only problem we had was associated with the clock radio. The cable had split through the insulation and was effectively live. When moved it tripped the fuse. This could be considered quite dangerous especially if children were about (although the live part of the cable was behind the bed). Hotel staff were genuinely shocked (no pun intended) when I mentioned this and said they would sort this out (hope they did).
Hotel recommended a restaurant down the road, Italian (canot remember the name) and it was very good.
Hotel had a buffet breakfast available. It was ok but nothing special.
If I was in this area again I would definately use it again.
