We were on a road trip and just kind of happened across this motel, which looks like your typical cheap-o roadside motel from the outside... Au contraire!!! While the cheap-o portion would be right on the money, thanks to the low price offered by this motel, there is nothing low-standard about the rooms. Ours was just lovely, with tasteful decor, a refrigerator, TV, fireplace and huge deck overlooking a giant, lush, riverside garden! After staying at the vastly overpriced Deetjens in Big Sur, this seemed like such an awesome deal, since the area behind the hotel was reminiscent and the room was actually better. The motel is also a convenient 5-minute walk to all the town's cute shops and restaurants, which is nice so you can just leave the car in the parking lot. There is no formal sit-down breakfast, but the rooms have refrigerators and coffee makers, and the very cute motel lobby with a pretty old piano offers coffee and pastries in the morning, which is good enough (give me free coffee and donuts and I'll take it infinitely more times than Deetjens' 40-dollar eggs benedict!) ...This was definitely one of the pleasant surprises in terms of hotels on our trip around California. Thanks!
