    The Host & workers were very friendly. The cottages great for our dogs. I would have felt more secure with higher fences for our dogs outside the cottages. What was very weird was all the black crows/ravens at the motel around the cottages. We felt...More

    Such a cute motel right on the route to Big Sur. Staff was super nice, rooms super clean and the patio was very quaint. Would totally recommend to anyone traveling on a budget. Rooms were very spacious and beds somewhat comfortable. Would stay there again.

    Friendly easy check-in. Clean room. Nice rustic furnishings. Comfortable bed. Clean bathroom with large shower. Balcony overlooked wooded area and river. Only downside was another guest's car alarm going off several times during the night right outside our room.
