Just a couple blocks from the main street (Ocean Ave.) Sea view from the upper rooms. Average breakfast fare and fresh. Do not get a room with a sleeper couch as it was our experience that it could have a pretty good sag in the center. Not so comfy! However, the king bed was VERY comfy : ) The hospitality staff was very nice and we cannot say enough about the great location!

Room Tip: We rate it very good because the location and comparable quality of the accomodation for the price r...

My husband and I had been planning and saving for this vacation we wanted to take our family on. WORST family vacay due to this MOTEL! My kids woke up screaming and crying in a frantic because the neighbors next to us were having extremely loud rowdy love making. Not to mention the walls there are already so thin, it was like they were on a loud speaker! Who would want there innocent children have to hear that? When we addressed the issue, they did absolutely NOTHING, didn't offer us another room, didn't resolve the issue, NOTHING, so we were left with no choice but to pack up at midnight and drive home 4 hours with our upset little ones. The manager, Joanna, is extremely unprofessional and rude. She declined to refund us? Then we realize we left our strollers there being in such a hurry to get out. The manager lied and said they did not see them...complete BS! I know they were there, I put them there myself! If you want to have the worst vacation ever, this hotel will do it for ya. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

Room Tip: Don't go here whatever you do!

The best part of staying in this motel was the heated pool and the flower displays. The room was clean and very convenient to town. We walked all over and found it nice to be able to walk back quickly to the room and rest. A fairly decent breakfast was also included in the price.

Great location, no need to move your car. The rooms were clean, bathroom looked like it was re-done recently, nice fire place, however the walls are thin and Junipero Street is a truck route so you do hear traffic even at night. Not bad for one night or maybe two, overall, the location and cleaniness of the rooms are fair.

Room Tip: Great location and rooms had a fire place but the walls are thin

Nice rooms, small and quaint. I agree with other reviews. Very clean. Nice bathrooms. Fireplace WAS used and appreciated! Comfortable bed.
Breakfast was fine.
Met two staff members, one was friendly. Not impressed with other one. No biggie though.
Would stay again, if I ever get the chance!
