My Mom always said ... "If you can't say something nice ...." but, in this case, I will make an exception. This hotel was a "choose from the road" choice and we chose it because it was right on the ocean and it was a "Quality Inn" - so, it had to be good, right? Well, it was OK but... More

We arrived after dark at about 9:30 at night. The restaurant in the hotel (strangely a seafood and steak restaurant in a budget hotel) closed at 9 but stayed open later for us and other travelers who arrived late. Our hotel room was spacious and clean. The only problem we had was that the breakfast room was a little small... More

Towels were stained, the water in the shower had NO pressure, several of the TV stations were non-existent. The indoor pool smelled of too much chlorine & the smell filled the check-in area. We had to get the room keys reprogrammed on the second night. The air conditioner smelled funny. The alarm clock was broken.

Our room had mold and mildew around the base molding, the curtains,and the bathroom joints. the room was damp. By evening my sister was feeling sick. I stepped on the carpet and it was squishy, wet! We asked for a new room on the second floor. The clerk acted as though we were unreasonable and questioning what we saw and... More

Like most other visitors, we utilised the Quality Inn for a stopover after Big Sur and before Hearst Castle. The hotel has an outdoor pool and whirlpool - nice! WiFi available. Our rooms were spacious and had a small patio but they need a renovation. Certain local birds consider the Quality Inn their home which is o.k. but the building... More

Having stayed in top end hotels in NYC and San Francisco, we were very pleased with what the Ramada offers for the price. As a family trying to save some money whilst on a long holiday in the USA, having a fridge, microwave, free wifi and free breakfast makes a massive difference! Breakfast is cereal, hard boiled eggs, sausages, waffles... More

Had a family get away. Front desk put us in three rooms in a row. We needed three rooms so that was nice to be together. The continental breakfast was average just like most hotels. Location to ocean, hearts castle and elephant seals was nice. It was a relaxing time. The pool was heated and relaxing. The staff was nice... More

Good location with poor wi-fi. Heated pool and hot along with a free breakfast with a decent. Close to Hearst Castle and Seal Viewing. Rooms are clean and have patios or balconies. Free parking. 6 miles North of Cambria where there is restaurants and many shops. Good place.

How about learning skills in hospitality - smile and a good morning and welcome to our hotel. Really grumpy owners/managers ruin an ok hotel. Room was basically ok but NO AIR-CONDITIONING. Place was full of foreign tourists which made it feel like a boarding house. Not upmarket
