This is a nice hotel with very bad internet connection. I literally every morning have to stand outside of the lobby to access the Internet. If you need Internet connection I wouldn't advise to stay here . Otherwise it's very nice.

It was labour day so very busy and the breakfast room was small and crowded, however breakfast was included and we were prepared to take... More

If you are a light sleeper the fridge noise from kitchen next door and traffic will keep you awake all night the room is dated and you have to move the lamps around to see as it is really dark. The shower is not working properly and leeks out of tap

We arrived after a long journey from Mammoth Lake. The motel was ideal for our needs. We had a quick dip in the outdoor pool then headed into downtown which is about 3 miles straight down the road. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was sufficient. We could get quickly onto the I101 to LA airport.

FIrst, a disclaimer: I live here so I've never stayed here or any other in-town lodging. However, I've been in the rooms, haven't heard any complaints and it's one of the three non-resort places I suggest to visiting relatives & friends depending on their age, stage of life & health, and pocketbook. It's clean, near a variety of restaurants and... More

After a decent days driving down the Pacific Highway, we were delighted to find The Sandpiper, clean and spacious and handy for a number of shops, restaurants, banks etc. - all only a few steps away.

Our room was spacious and clean, internet was okey and breakfast was good with scrambled eggs , toasts , yoghurt, etc included in the price of the room. A little bit away from the beach and shops but no more than 10 minutes by car. Would definitely come back.
