We stayed here overnight last month (June 2013) on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Our host were very friendly and helpful, directing us to a wonderful venue for dinner which was within easy walking distance.
The motel is very attractive, with lovely gardens and a real homey feel. Rooms are very comfortable, with full kitchen and very comfy beds and spotlessly clean.
I would recommend this motel to anyone wanting a lovely friendly place to stay, close to waterfront and shops.
