A quick & easy walk to ocean beach access, about 1 block away. Plenty of chairs for sitting outside on warm summer evenings. Local owned, with helpful and inviting managers. I like wood paneled decor, and room 6 was beautifully done with natural wood. Great value for the money. Very quiet at night. Lights were almost too dim for evening/after-dark... More

Wow. Found this place by fluke on a July 4th weekend litterly by going down the wrong road. Fate led us to meet the Inn Kepper Andrew who was amazingly friendly from start to finish. We ended up in the Kontiki Room. It was stunning with its woodwork. The jet tub was massive. I am sure tubs like that were... More

This was our first weekend away without the kids in over 10 years. We wanted a romantic getaway for our anniversary and found the Whistling Winds Motel website. It looked & sounded lovely so we booked 2 nights in the Love Shack themed room. After a 4 1/2 hour drive we arrived to check in. We were then told there... More

Hello JayNay, We, like many other motels, do not offer housekeeping service during your stay, to conserve on water and waste. It's a practice that many motels have been taking on, and we feel it helps out the environment. We are more than happy to provide fresh towels, upon request. We gave you and your husband 7 extra towels, for... More

We had one of their standard rooms. Nothing in special to report, everything was in the room, flat screen TV, coffeemaker and microwave. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The whole set-up was really comfy and we enjoyed our stay. The Motel is in a residential area and so there was absolutely no noise. Close to the beach,... More

Came here to get away from stress. The hotel is adorable and very quick walk to the beach. I could hear the ocean from my room. Unfortunately due to other guests partying in the parking lot till 5am I didn't sleep nor hear the beach. This is to no fault of the hotel though. Very clean, and very friendly staff.

Great place to stay. Rooms are clean. Vintage cottage feel. I love how it does not look like every other motel, and don't have the hideous drapes and bed spread. Everything is like you would have in your own home. Cozy. Love it here.
