I stumbled upon this place online when looking for someplace unusual to stay while on business in Salinas. So glad I did. I'm not sure this would be the first place I'd come for a vacation . . . previous reviewers are right that it is not a resort-quality hotel and the time share properties add a tacky quality, but what a great break from a traditional business hotel. Amazing location and worth the additional $$ to be tucked away in so special a piece of the earth. I loved hearing the pounding surf, being surrounded by dunes, have a gas fireplace to heat the room and tooling around in the golf cart. The views are amazing . . . the beach feels like the end of the world -- no development, just sand and dunes and the Pacific and it is great to fun to walk at sunset. My room was well configured, attractive and comfortable. Again, not luxe but certainly pleasant. Breakfast arrives on time for $10 -- not great quality food but convenient. The rooms have coffee makers and small refrigerators. Turndown service was great in the evening. The wifi was good, bathroom decent with separate tub and shower area, nice bathrobe, nice finishes and fabrics and comfortable sitting area and balconies or patios looking out on the horizon. I will definitely stay again.
