Located on a hillside with fab views of the majestic Pacific Ocean! Ask for a room on the south end of the motel, ideally 2nd or 3rd floor. George was very accommodating in helping us select a room when I called for a reservation. Beautiful sunset view was equally beautiful at sunrise. If you surf, this is the place to go - one of the best surf breaks on the west coast, I am told. Would be a fun place to stay for a week, or just a few nights for a quick getaway. Lots of good dining options in walking or short drive range. Trivia: Who remembers the Eagles' "Hotel California"? THE original Hotel California, where the Eagles hung out, is a private residence, just a few blocks north of the Moonlight Beach Motel.
