This is not a fancy motel, rather a fairly basic ordinary accommodation. However, it has been not just maintained but made quite comfortable. Beds are new, good support, lots of pillows, linens sparkly clean. An included breakfast was decent: omelet with cheese, fresh fruit, sausage, waffles.... More than enough to get you started on your day. Staff very pleasant and... More

This is probably the least expensive option especially if you have a dog. It was not the street noise, but a lot of truck and traffic in the motel lot all night. It is true that there are no washcloths as noted in another review. The place is older and located near 92 and Highway 1. We had a first... More

If you use a wash cloth when you bathe, you'll have to BRING YOUR OWN at this place because they don't supply them. In all our years of staying at motels, this was a first. This is an older motel but still clean. We had an upstairs two-double-bed cramped room with fridge/freezer, TV, microwave and the usual furniture. WIFI and... More

Overall, very reasonable. Quiet room, 2nd floor. No noise from the neighbors. Fair value for the price. Front desk staff very accommodating; we got to know them well, for the only small negative was that our swipe key for the room door failed a couple of times each day. The included breakfast was excellent value and more in line with... More

We made a last minute reservation during Memorial Day weekend. The place was super easy to find, the room was adequate, nothing fancy, but then again, neither was the price. Free breakfast in the morning. The rooms were a little noisy, but nothing too terrible. We could hear some people outside in the evening and then again in the morning.... More

Drove too far, last minute choice of the desperate. The place was noisy with a gaggle of students over spring break, asked for a quieter and larger room. Were taken to the far end, and as we were unloading our car the canine units started showing up discreetly, waiting under the stairs outside of our room, about 8 sheriffs showed... More

October of 2014 we made a trip up the PCH and spent a night here at this motel. The front desk girl, sorry don't remember her name, was awesome! Very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quiet even with the highway right outside. Breakfast was great. I'd definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

This is a very old motel. Bed was hard as a rock, pillows were small and flat. Heard our neighbors TV thru the walls and heard the folks above us stomping till the wee hours of the night. Very noisy location. However there were some good points to this motel. They are dog friendly, mini refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot... More

Horrible smelling room triggered my asthma, was only in room for less than 5 minutes and had to leave to find another hotel. The manager has not responded to MANY calls and emails for a refund. I hope everyone checks out TripAdvisor reviews before they make the same mistake we did.
