This is a cute little 60's vintage motel that has been nicely updated and is tucked away far from the hubbub of Monterrey yet close to the beautiful shoreline near the point. It is clean, with spacious rooms and good mattresses and other appointments, albeit a bit sparse given how huge the rooms are.
Complaints are three:
1) The breakfast fare is definitely on the cheap side, even for continental. Tiny cups, limited selection. Sort of a 'Motel 6' free breakfast.
2) The cheapness extends to the soap and shampoo items. Here, it really is Motel 6 level bar of soap that barely covers your thumb.
3) Finally, and this could be the deal breaker for any women whose hair is longer than 4 inches, the shower is an absolute joke. I live in Southern California and well understand the drought situation that we are in. I have stayed in Santa Barbara that probably has the most onerous water usage laws in the world. That said, the water pressure being delivered to this shower head meant that it was little more than a Palm Springs outdoor mister. Taking a shower was a ten minute ordeal and I cannot imagine how someone with long hair could possibly wash their hair. You had to hold the bar of soap directly under the shower head for ten seconds to even get it wet!
