It's on Highway 1 on the west edge of town, and you park your car in front of your door. But that's where the comparison to the motels of my youth ends -- the rooms are as the photos and reviews describe: new, modern, clean, and comfortable, and I've never stayed anyplace like it. Really a pleasant surprise.
They aren't super-high-quality finishes and it felt a tiny bit DIY. (But so does my house, so that's okay.) And the glass door to the toilet suggests you ought to know your roommate pretty well. I'd also recommend the top floor: we were on the ground, and anytime our upstairs neighbors were present, the ceiling *tick-tick-tick-tick*ed with annoying/alarming regularity. We never heard footsteps -- it was more like a structural thing. But aside from that, I highly recommend it: it was the best motel of our trip by far.
