#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

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!

Circumstances have delayed this review of our fifth visit to this truly delightful motel, which took place back in October. There's nothing new I can say! Except that Rick and Rebecca run as good a place as ever and run it with love. Next to their family, the Seaside business is their life. Please look back and see my 2017 October review for more ........then go there.

I've stayed here several times over the past 10 years, and have never once been disappointed! Rick is the best, and they keep the rooms and grounds pristine!! The back yard BBQ is awesome, they supply charcoal and lighter fluid, all you need to bring is the meat! I've stayed in about 6 of the rooms, including the kitchenette, and all have different themes, very creative! You're right across the street from a great restaurant (can't recall the name right off hand) that serves a delicious breakfast, and has a great lunch/dinner menu (american, italian and mexican!). Just a couple blocks south is the Sea Shanty, also great food breakfast/lunch/dinner, and the other way is town, about a 2 block walk...to the beach or the Tavern. Cayucos is awesome, a nice quiet little village that lets you unwind, and the Seaside Motel is the perfect place to lay down and rest after a busy day! Always quiet, and sitting in the back yard enjoying a cold beer or glass of wine while watching the ocean is the ultimate in relaxation! Enjoy!!
