Stayed in the room that over looks the beach along Cabrillo Blvd. Room 110. Great, great view. French doors open right over the sidewalk, a small wood balcony with a cozy little table and two chairs. You get to see the pier and the beach all day and night. Now for the bad news. There is a community (motel) wood deck outside the door of room 110. It's about 10'x 25' in size and it is for all motel patrons to use....at whatever time they want. Case in point, group of twenty something adults partying late at night, yelling over each other, and not one of them cares about the people staying in the room at the end of the deck. You've been warned. It's a trade off. If you have a bunch of partying friends, best damn room you could ask for. If you just want to get a good nights sleep, forget it. This was on a Wednesday, too! Anyway, it's not the motels fault. The room is ok. Not the cleanest LOOKING place. Dingy carpet and dingy upholstered chairs. Bathroom was clean. Electrical outlets (plugs) are all old, two-prong, and very loose. Hard to get a charger (phone/laptop) plug to stay in. I found a newer GFI in the bathroom that held great. All-in-all, I would likely stay there again, but at the opposite end of the motel. Not next to the deck.
