“Excellent hotel, good location!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here on our way from San Francisco to la. we weren't expecting much for the price but its a gem! Check in staff were very friendly and showed us to the room! Lovely location by the sea, room very spacious and bed was massive and comfy! Bathroom was well equipped and good choice of cable tv! Overall, very nice:) be ware there are not many shops nearby but plenty of restaurants, we drove into cambria which is 10 mins up the road, very beautiful all along the coast. Great location for Hearst castle!

This is the first motel in a little neighborhood of hotels near Hearst Castle. It is one of the least expensive hotels in the area. From what I could tell, all of the rooms face the ocean. There are some nice townhouses blocking most of the view, though. It is also a short walk to a bluff overlooking the ocean. The rooms themselves are very nice for the price, and have all of the amenities we needed. The shower was good, but the bathroom itself was small and felt old. The towels were a little thin as well. I also had some privacy concerns about the clouded glass window in the bathroom that looked out onto the parking lot and was right next to the sidewalk. The front desk staff was good and assisted me with one minor problem I had created for myself.

Room Tip: The south side probably has the best view.

I booked this hotel because of its proximity to Hearst Castle. Arrived in the evening, stayed one, and continued on to the castle. Compared to other budget hotels/motels in CA, this was the nicest one and even cheaper. The staff was friendly. The room was spacious, recently renovated, bathroom looked new. I had a comfortable quiet sleep on king size bed and hot shower in the morning. Breakfast was average. I could see the ocean from my window. In the morning, when checking out, I noticed they were renovating other rooms next to mine, getting ready for summer season. I would stay there again and longer next time.

We stayed here for one night and would have been quite happy to stay more. The room was well presented clean and comfortable. Most importantly it was quiet. We slept really well. It's close to the beach so you can go for a nice walk. It's close to Hearst Castle too which for us was a plus. We were so glad we stayed here.

After some of our experiences wandering up the coast this was a surprise. The cheapest of all the hotels we stayed at (between LA and San Francisco), we slept well here. The bed was a little on the firm side, however the room was clean and comfortable, and hands down the quietest of any we've had on this trip so far. Breakfast provided was very basic, but enough to start a day on.

Room Tip: No lift, so if you don't like stairs get a ground floor room.

The price was great. The rooms were nice, refrigerator and microwave. The view was very nice and I loved sleeping with the window open listening to the waves. The only down fall I could say was the beds were hard and I couldn't wait to be home in my bed.

Clean room with an ocean view for $45 dollars on a winter weeknight. Comfortable bed, and oh so quiet after sunset. What more can you say? Absolutely nothing to whine about here except the gas prices in nearby Cambria. Fill up in Monterey or San Luis Obispo to avoid the gougers in Cambria.
