It really is an incredibly beautiful place. The structure, the decor, the flowers, plants, everything. No photo can do it justice. Just lovely. Price is reasonable for the area. Motel is 4 stories. My view from my 4th floor was fantastic. Room decor was bright and upbeat. Different from the average motel. Big bathroom. Clean. Very comfortable. (Be aware that although 4th floor has non-smoking rooms, guests are allowed to smoke on the balcony. Doesn't make sense to me, but every motel seems to allow smoking right outside non-smoking rooms.) No breakfast with the room, but they have a restaurant on site and you can get room service. (Didn't bother me because I don't eat big breakfasts.) Huge, gorgeous swimming pool. Shopping center directly behind the motel and another across the street. Big Sur is a 45 minute drive up Hwy 1. I found this location to be perfect for me. Went to Monterey, Pacific Grove, Big Sur - all easy drives from the Inn. Very friendly staff - eager to help with anything you need. There was a mix-up in driving directions as I was leaving, but when I spoke with the manager, she was very kind. No bad vibes here. I would certainly stay again. I miss it already!
