From reading reviews, I got the idea that this place had been recently remodeled. Our room was old and not very clean. location right off the freeway is noisy and didn't feel real safe. we were able to walk to beach and restaurants, though. Didn't even try the breakfast. I realize this motel was budget-priced, but, I just expected a...

The room looks exactly as pictured above. Older rooms but clean and the bed was great. Very comfortable. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave. Just a few blocks from the pier, easy to walk back and forth. There is no view of ocean. Hotel is near the entrance to Hwy 101 which you can hear the road noise some but...

Stayed here for 1 night during a roadtrip on highway 1. + The room was overall comfortable. Bed was comfortable. However, it was too high. They seem to have 2 mattresses on top of each other, you need to jump to get on to the bed, where as the nightstands next it are not as high. Which is not very...

Handily placed just off the freeway and 5 minutes from the beach. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Front desk staff were a bit slow, but otherwise friendly. Rooms were large and clean. Good all round option that won't break the bank.

The bed was surprisingly comfortable. We had no problems or issues with any of the amenities, considering that it was about the lowest cost place we could find in the area. The microwave did have a little trouble opening, but nothing serious. The man at the desk was not especially friendly and the continental breakfast left us wanting! Nonetheless, overall,...

Stayed here 1 night. Was a stop on the drive from SF to LA so a good but cheap motel was the pre-requisite. Ocean Palms didn't disappoint. Basic but clean. For what it is, Ocean Palms offers a comfortable bed, off street parking, free wifi that works just fine if not a bit fiddly to connect to - in my...

This motel was ok for us since we had a small dog. But didn't know there was a charge for the pet and were only allowed to use rooms who had previously had pets in them. The carpet did not seem clean but basically the room was ok for this trip with our pet.

Rooms are good even if towels a bit small. Free breakfast is exactly that and a bit skimpy. Nice eating very close at Rosa's. Room is good value, quiet despite a moan road close. I would use again if needed to.

I like this place. I like the owners, I liked the clean room, except for the noise from the traffic entering the 101. But the thing that frustrated me the most is how bad the internet was at the Ocean Palms. Every 5 minutes the internet connection is interrupted. Fix that and it would be worth returning. This is not...

I have read the reviews of this motel and for some I just cannot agree. It's a little old fashioned but it's spotlessly clean. Our room was huge. Had everything you could need. I must say had the best shower on my trip so far. Lots of hot water and power to make you feel clean. It is literally a...
