My husband and I have been coming to stay here for four years.Most people stop here because they are going to Hearst Castle or going up the coast. We come here as a destination. I noted this motel when we were going up the coast. After we first stayed here I vowed to come back.It is right on the ocean and at night they have " bonfires" in outdoor fireplaces and they have lights on the ocean so you can see it at night. There is a restaurant next door and Hearst Castle is right up the road.
