#2 of 10 hotels in Cayucos
Half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and just a stroll away from the sand and beach, the Seaside is a home away from home! Each charming room is unique in decor, all sprinkled with gifts from their ever-loving customers. The back garden patio can be found softly buzzing with wine sippers, book readers and chit-chats! Summer rates range from $110 - $180 Winter rates range from $80 - $110

This is my second time staying here, the first time was five years ago. I love it just as much now as I did back then. The hotel seems very small from the street, but has everything you need to have a nice day at the beach. Every room is different, so make sure you look at the website to see what room will work best for you. Rooms range from small, to family suites with kitchenettes, but all are decorated individually, are very cute, and are very clean. They have all the basic amenities that you need, but don’t expect breakfast, or refrigerators/microwaves in all of the rooms. I am OK with this, because the property is very cute, clean, they have a great outdoor patio area and garden, and the prices are very budget friendly. I can always find a room at this great hotel in a bind, I know we will have a comfortable stay.

The owners are so nice and accommodating! Each room is uniquely designed with personality all its own! The garden behind is a great place to gather for wine, barbecues or just to relax! I will definitely stay there again!❤️ P.S. very clean!

The most eclectic, homey, friendliest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Each room is decorated different and they are absolutely darling. Rebecca‘s garden in the back which has a picnic table, reading area, the most beautiful flowers, bird houses and everything wonderful in it. We were here for a family reunion and we will be back, absolutely love this place

We stayed in the Sunflower Surprise room, which was beautiful. Rick and Rebecca, the owner-hosts, were very friendly and helpful. Rebecca's garden itself should be a top-ten place to visit in Cayucos. Only two or three blocks from just about everywhere you'd want to walk in town.

This tiny 12 room motel is totally charming. Located right on the main street with an elaborate lovingly tended garden in the back overlooking the water. Each room has a fun name like Purple Haze, with hand painted decorations on the walls and a crazy collection of nick-knacks. The owner/operators are super friendly and full of suggestions of where to eat and things to do. You'd never stop here if you didn't know - but now you do!
