“Sweet Motel”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is the sweet little beach motel (its a 13 minute walk to the beach ) . Complete with the sweet couple, Harry and his wife Ina, who greet you with a smile as you come in the door and also live on site. Harry and Ina were so sweet every time I saw them they had a hello and how are you. The rooms are not fancy but very clean and spacious, some with ocean peaks. The continental breakfast is muffins, pastries, coffee, fruit and juice. Rooms have hair dryer, microwave and refrigerator.Very quiet and peacful place. Beds comfortable also. I will return.

Room Tip: rooms in front have ocean peaks

We were visiting family in the area. We found the rooms to be clean and the staff very friendy. It was nice to have a mirowave and small refrigerator in the room. It was close to the beach. The motel is well priced.Overall we were very satisfied with the inn and will stay here again.

A short walk from the Amtrak to this lovely motel. Managers are very accommodating and pleasant people. The room and bathroom are large and clean. The extras - ice bucket,
cups and microwave were used by me for a fine dinner for two at the small dining table in the room. Definitely worth the stay and just a short walk to Grover Beach where you can ride a dune buggy or horseback ride along the beach. Just watch out for High Tide!

Room Tip: Bottom floor has the ice machine and soda machine on it. You don't have to carry your luggage...

Very friendly at reception desk. Rooms are clean and just fine and practical. Beds are comfortable and it is a very quiet place, we had a great rest. Breakfast wasn't much at all but not unusual for hotels in that price range.

Came up just spend a family weekend and it was just fine .. ..

It's a family-run motel in the city, so if you're expecting a MARRIOTT, HILTON or RADISSON one will be deeply disappointed .. ..

The most-important things are that the motel is just blocks away from the GROVER BEACH AMTRAK STATION and bus stops just blocks away .. .. The rooms are clean and decently furbished .. ..

Was actually surprised that they had WI-FI and new flat-screen TVs on the wall .. ..

Sure, some of the furniture was a bit dated, but this a MOTEL, not a resort .. ..

For a weekend to spend in town, and being realistic about what I was paying for, this stay was just fine and probably exceeded my expectations .. ..

This was the worst hotel I have ever seen. Filthy and smelly, had an old sofa in the room that should of been sent to the dump, it was horrible, stained and cushions were completely flat... Homeless people outside so I guess it wasn't the best area and it was not cheap!!!! We booked on line so called and complained and our money was refunded. Even the front office was dirty and smelled. After we left we wished that we had taken pictures.....

The room is dated, the bathroom smelt of cigarettes (a non smoking room, but our guess is that it was previously a smoking room and you just can't get rid of that smell!); but it was cheap and the room was clean. The continental breakfast is a joke, so don't book it thinking you will have a light meal (it's served in the lobby which is the size of a bathroom). I wouldn't stay here again, but it's not terrible. You get what you pay for.
