Great Motel! Can't recommended it highly enough! It does exactly what it should and it does it extremely well! Ideal location for people wishing to break up their drive from San Francisco to LA and even more ideal for people wishing to visit Hearst Castle as it's less than a 5 minute drive away. Also, the staff were extremely friendly... More

We had dinner in the restaurant which was decent for the price. We special ordered the nachos with all the toppings on the side. They arrived just as we had ordered them. The burgers were average foe the price. I thought they could have been better. The service was friendly however. We had a very nice room; clean and comfortable.... More

We stopped in here because of the scarcity of places to stay along CA 1. The motel was perfectly fine. All we needed was a clean, safe place to spend the night and this place was exactly that. It's a Motel 6, so if you expect luxury, shame on you. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

After coming down the coastal highway we stopped here because places were filling up. Good enough to sleep water pressure was low. Over priced at $250 but we did not make reservations ahead time. I would make reservations for this area ahead of time heading south from Monterey area.

The people that checked us in were friendly and helpful. There was coffee and hot water available in the morning. We went to the restaurant next door based on reviews we found. We had pasta, the Cobb salad and wine. It was above expectation. Great service and great food. It is close to the elephant seal beach and Hearst Castle,... More

Never pay more than $80 bucks a night to stay at a Motel 6 or you will be sorely disappointed. If I had, I would have probably given my stay here two stars instead of one. Spent two nights here with my family because we booked late during peak summer season and everything else in the area had no vacancies... More

We arrived late in evening to find a spartan bare room with no water cups, no in-room coffee set-up, very spare water flow in bathroom (not enough to take a decent shower and barely enough pressure to wash your hands), wash cloths and towels with the texture of sand paper. The room looked clean enough until I dropped something and... More

Very clean, fair sized rooms but furniture is very Spartan, room bare but adequate to sleep. Bathroom reasonable, no shampoo, no fridge or MWave, wifi free, no breakfast included, TV small, but for area prices reasonable. Go elsewhere if you want more.

Relatively cheap (expensive for a Motel6 at nearly $100) given its proximity to Hearst Castle, and very convenient particularly if you are going to Hearst Castle when it opens the next morning... nothing special, but that is Motel6! Also close to Elephant Seal beach.

In no particular order: No refreshment making facilities in rooms Mouldy sealant round bath/shower Annoyingly patronising receptionist informing us we had the privilege of free WiFi rather than pay $2.95 a day. For the record I own a guest house and have given free WiFi unlimited download ever since first connected, around ten years ago. $145 for the room per... More
