And that tends to be a good thing. You'll get a room, a bed, a bathroom and all the usual stuff. It's right off the highway, which makes for convenient access, but there's no problem with traffic noise.

We stopped on our way to Marin county. The room was spacious and the beds were so comfortable! Great value for just over $100. Would stop again if we travel in that direction. Close to food, Walmart and other stores.

We stayed in laurel inn as a base for central coast and big sur. The motel is very clean and tidy, with comfortable beds and clean sheets. The breakfast is good with a large choice and good products for a motel. Reasonable price.

Our stay was on July 27, 2016. We arrived at the motel and were greeted at the front desk by 2 smiling and joyful receptionists. Sorry to say, I did not get their names. We had some questions about some local attractions and they went out of their way to answer and help us out. We arrived to a very... More

The place is clean and it's been painted but the old mattress has remain you cannot get a good nights sleep at the Laurel Inn At least the Black bear diner is on the property because the breakfast room is so crowded we couldn't even get a cuppa coffee

Convenient for just a night. Just what you need, a spacious motel room when on the road. Close to the freeway, so we asked for a quiet room which was fine. The swimming pool is next to the noisy parking. Nearby is a shopping centre, a Walmart, Starbucks and some restaurants.

For a non-luxury hotel, this is as good as it gets. The "structure" is not new, but inside the rooms everything is there and spotless. It appears that this is one place where the hypothetical aspirations of hotel perfection, are mostly met by the hotel's staff and management. The free breakfast and food contributed to the positive experience. I'd stay... More

Great place to stay that is very close to shopping centers and Monterey and Carmel. We booked here because everything in Big Sur was either sold out or very pricey. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower/bathtub had some nice colored tiles and a glazed window that let in some natural light. Breakfast was standard. The staff was very... More

We were greeted by very nice desk clerks that were able to answer a lot of questions. The room was clean, but dated with an interesting smell, but worth it since it was clean! The pool and hot tub were awesome where we spent both evenings! The breakfast was similar to a hotel with a motel price.
