“Shabby but not very chic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2004

We selected this motel out of the AAA magazine because they had a special hearst castle package and because it looked nice in the pictures provided. Unfortunately, things are not always as they seem in ads. The best part of the package was the tour and the included dinner certificate, which we were able to use at the wonderful Brambles restaurant. The hotel (inside and out) is very tired looking and shows significant wear. The rooms were spacious - yes, and it did include a gas fireplace but other than that, there wasn't much to the place. It was also very noisy as all the rooms face an inner courtyard that echoes everything. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend unless you know you aren't going to be spending much time in the room or at the hotel.
