“A nice bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was a really nice hotel. Be aware that some rooms have little patios, and there are some that do not. We wound up with one that did not have a patio. But the rooms are nice, and we had a good time. The beach is across the street and there is a long, long boardwalk you can watch on this beach. It is a great place to visit.

Overall an enjoyable stay at a decent price. The bed wasn't that comfortable and be sure to get to breakfast early, otherwise you'll have to go somewhere else. Once the food is gone they don't replenish.

This hotel is in a great location and the staff is fabulous. You can walk to the beach in a matter of minutes. Close to Monterey and Santa Cruz, we did both on our trip. Would definitely recommend. It's a great "beachy" hotel, no noise from the highway and I can't say that about lots of places I've stayed. Lots of stores nearby if you need them, like Target, and restaurants too.

The property has a great location for both the beach and proximity to Monterey (10+ minutes). While the rooms are simple, the surroundings are great and the service just happens to be top-notch. Ernie (ask for him) is quite the host and knows the area more than enough to make recommendations as well as take care of things on your behalf, including great dinner reservations. His attention to detail is definitely what made the stay that much better.

I recommend staying if you are looking for something above average and aren't looking at the resorts/costlier hotels in the area. Thank you again Ernie!

Hi fellow travelers,

I have enjoyed the room at this hotel a lot! I had a King Bed in the room, with a nice sturdy chair to sit & watch TV. The bathroom was wonderful with spacious almost oval tub & good runny warm shower. It was a simple room, but it felt very spacious, clean and comfortable! Beautiful counter top at sink! Nice desk and chair to sit and use your laptop. The internet worked GREAT!

Breakfast was fine, hard boiled eggs, waffles, muffins, .....
I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The walk to the sand dunes to the beach is a bit far and not walk friendly. If you drive a few minutes to park there and walk out is fine.

This hotel had a laundry facility on the ground floor. I didn't use it. It costs about $2+ to wash. If you have a lot of laundry to wash, bring lots of quarters!

Room Tip: choose a room upstairs if you don't have much luggage.

We loved that the hotel had beach access right around the corner. We saw dolphins while relaxing on the beach. DEFINITELY will be returning to the hotel soon! Our children were able to enjoy the room as well and they had a blast on the beach!

We asked for a handicapped room, it was located at the bottom of the hill, my mother could not go to the breakfast room, because she could not walk up the hill or the stairs. She almost slipped in the shower. When I tried to explain this to the long haired female manager, she was just plane rude.
