“Average 'motel' in a stopover location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Check in and Check out very quick and easy - not outstanding service but we didn't expect that considering the price we had paid. Clean and good size room with 2 double beds. Bathroom large however shower only gave out cold water which was not great as four of us needed to shower. Breakfast in the morning was good quality and good size portion. Great location for Hearst castle and for our stopover on the journey down highway 1. Right on the seafront which is perfect for taking pictures and seeing elephant seals and whale watching!

We have stayed at Best Western Hotels for many years. We have found them with the best accommodations, with the best beds, like being home. And those serving full breakfasts, there are no equals. Best Western have selected excellent locations for their hotels, making an extended stay more enjoyable.

We had ocean facing rooms and they were very well equipped. Good size in all 'things', ie bathroom, bedroom, small lounge area and outside deck. Check in and check out fast and accommodating. Brkfast was included in our rate and was OK. We were especially lucky as we had a great evening with a speckie sunset.

Beautiful views on the Pacific Ocean situated very near Hearst Castle and Cambria. Fireplace in room made it extremely cozy on the chilly evenings and mornings. The bed was extremely comfortable as well.. Bonfires every evening overlooking the ocean provided, where you could join bringing your wine to share. Very romantic! The restuarant had delicious food and great service although very very busy! The staff was extremely acommodating and friendly from beginning to end of our 2 night stay! We will definitely plan to stay there again while driving to Big Sur,, San Simeon and on to Cambria! We really enjoyed our relaxing weekend there!

This is a wonderful property, clean and well-groomed. The staff is friendly and professional. We will definitely stay here again. The restaurant has good food, large portions and is reasonably priced.

The hotel is right very near the beach, wonderful ocean sounds to help you fall asleep. In the evening they light fires out on the beach and invite you to bring drink and watch the sunset. Very beautiful. The only drawback might be the lack of breakfast provided. There is a restaurant on the property that is adequate: fair food, expensive and crowded.

This was the fourth time we've stopped and stayed at this motel since discovering it only five years ago. Each experience seems to get better, and I could not recommend this stop more. Especially if you stay at one of the upgraded rooms featuring ocean front or shore front accommodations. If you are ever in the need to travel to the area to partake in some of the nearly 400 winery's wine-tasting rooms in the Paso Robles California Central Coast area, or wish to visit the beautiful San Simeon Hearst Castle, this is an excellent choice to spend your late afternoon and night.

Room Tip: The water and shore front rooms, are especially romantic and offer awesome views of the sun setting...
