“Just amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I really didn't want to write this review cause it would giveaway our new hidden gem. But I had to let everyone know about this place.

It's amazing.

Lets start with the rooms. Holy cow. I travel and stay in hotels at least 50 times a year and this place had to be the nicest hotel best western has to offer. I will not give away much, I want you to be surprised when you arrive.

The service was above and beyond.

We loved having the fire pits out front. Wife and I must have stayed a few hours outside by the fire.

Loved how the beach was just steps away from the hotel and we could just walk down there with the kids to go rock hounding.

We will definitely be making another trip just to stay in this hotel.

And the price for the rooms, worth well the price.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but the king rooms look right out to the ocean.

We have visited this hotel several times. Always clean and ready for check-in upon arrival. Staff is friendly and helpful at all times. Can recommend the breakfasts at the on-site restaurant. This hotel provides the perfect quiet, romantic get-a-way. Sitting by the fire at the beachside firepits - available every evening just before sundown - is a wonderful treat. As well, a great way to meet people from all over the world. Hotel is pet friendly.

Post-wedding madness soothed by a last minute booking to this lovely property. Our Hearst Castle wedding was made more magical by our stay at this spot after all seeing off friends and family. Adjacent restaurant proved a fantastically convenient, affordable and delicious option.

Love this hotel! It is amazing and is pretty clean! The front office staff is really nice and always accommodate us when we are in need of something. We used to stay in Cambria, but for the price this place is awesome! I love that I do not have to pay an arm and a leg for such a beautiful location.

We stayed here one night for my 70th birthday. To say the least this is the best BestWestern hotel we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at many. The hotel is ocean side with big rooms and all the amientities you could ask for. Our balconey overlooked the beach and had two rockers on it. It was quiet(except for the sea noise, which we liked) and private. The hotel is beach front and had open air fire pits and chairs to sit and watch the ocean, have a drink or whatever. The wood is furnished and on a chilly evening it was fantastic. The rooms were very comfortable with overside stuffed chairs, a mini bar, safe, emergency flashlight, even bioculars to watch the sea birds and passing whales. The room was spotless and most of us know that there is always something you don't like, but not here. The paper was delivered in the morning and car windshield towels provided. It has a restaurant on the grounds too. They were also excellent. The food was excellent, the service fast, polite, friendly and the prices very reasonable. All in all this Resort hotel is worth the 5 stars I have rated it. We Will return again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on The Terrace, they are all ocean front!

Ocean front rooms are by far the best with patios on the ground floor, and decks on the second floor. Rooms are large with fireplaces, with Soundless Radiant Heat, so no fan noise, etc. to interfere with the wonderful ocean sounds. Dinner in the restaurant was very good, with good local wine list. Nice size selection at fair prices, with a knowledgeable Sommelier. Friendly and competent staff.
A very comfortable and welcoming place to stay.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are by far the best. Ground floor rooms have patios, and second floor have decks.

Second floor balcony had an unrestricted view of the ocean. Slept with the door open to the sound of the waves crashing and the ocean breeze. Very peaceful stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Very soft and comfortable beds. Very firm and uncomfortable pillows. Bring your own if you can.
