The place is very nice. I stayed overnight after visiting Hearst Castle. No surprises: standard BW room. Perfect: a lot of outdoors fireplaces. Good choice – you will not need to drive to Santa Barbara.

Great place to stay. Quiet and beautiful. Within driving distance of all the central coast has to offer. It's pet friendly and the people are helpful and courteous. Restaurants nearby are adequate and fine dining not far away.

A perfect place to enjoy the Central Coast. I had a second floor ocean view room and it was a great vantage point to watch brown pelicans, cormorants, herons, sea otters and gulls feeding as well as wind surfers in the afternoon. Great place to take long walks along the beach. Paso Robles wineries are within easy driving distance as...

Plus; Excellent view. Neg. The ocean front room did not feel clean and I think this is because all room are available for pets. Had I known this when booking I would not have stayed here. Dogs walking in front of our unit and doing their thing, although it was cleaned up I did not feel like walking around on...

Rooms were clean, beds soft, ocean wonderful. I believe all rooms have a view of the ocean. If you need a downstairs room, be sure and call the hotel direct and make sure they reserve one for you. If you are late arrival and have just made the request on your on-line reservation, you will not get a downstairs room,...

This hotel wonderful place to stay and the staff is wonderful. The restaurant has great food and great service. I rate this hotel and restaurant a number 10 plus.

Here is a great destination motel. It is on the beach with fantastic ocean rooms and balconies. To make it even better there are fire pits the hotel staff light each night. The restaurant provides generous and delicious portions especially breakfast. Their pancake stack could feed two easily, they are huge!

The hotel is a large property with several buildings. It is located right on the pacific ocean coast near Hearst Castle. There is a connected restaurant with good food and reasonable prices. The hotel is well maintained and operated with a great amount of pride. The fire places located on the bluff are lit each night with chairs for seating.

“Buy better toilet paper. It was rough and thin. Put screens on sliders. Bathroom could be painted fresh. Maybe take off brown bedspread and just use white duvets or sheets, so they can be wash after every visit. Microwaves would be nice. Maybe BBQ for use .”

“This motel is not "elegant", it's a "beach bungalow" type location. The rooms are clean and plain. There is a fireplace, fridge and mini bar. Most rooms have a patio and in the oceanfront rooms you can spend your entire stay just relaxing on it. ”
