My daughter and I stayed here to check out the funky little town and attend an evening event at a local winery. We were so completely happy here. The decor was minimal, but modern and cozy. The bed was amazing and the claw foot tub was a fun experience! Our room was very clean. I loved the location, in walking... More

I was here on business and wasn't expecting much. Gotta say, I loved this little gem. The room was tastefully decorated and I got the claw foot tub which made it all the cooler. There's a nice fire pit outside and the whole vibe is like you stepped back in time. It would be super romantic to come here with... More

Stayed here with girlfriends as we went wine tasting for a couple of days before we had to go back to work. Our first room did not have a refrigerator but they quickly updated us to a room that had one. The room was cute and clean especially for the price. My only complaint would be the lighting inside and... More

We snagged the last available room after perusing online on a drive back from Monterey to Los Angeles, and we're glad we did. Recently redone, the motel features spartan rooms with a cute aesthetic. Ideally located for walking to all the best spots in town for eating, drinking and antiquing. The only disappointment is the pictures online highlight the claw... More

This is our second visit to the motel - so cute! We loved all the outdoor areas to hang out in and the wine room as well. The beds were really comfortable but I think the space could have been a bit cleaner. The skins on the floor were looking a bit worn. They were super helpful with supplying a... More

A cute revamp of an older motel makes for a good one or two night stay. The rooms are compact with attractive shabby chic furnishings, showers work well and we could park right outside. Check in quick and helpful. There is a nice central garden space for sitting with a glass of wine. Best of all is the location set... More

This was a great little motel. Of course everything was within walking distance of this quaint little town. The rooms are crisp and efficient and offer some local wines within. The motel also has a small wine tasting room, a local musician and a community fire pit, which is great for the quiet evenings.

Rustic hotel in a great location. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Center gathering area with fire pit, water feature and wine bar on premises were great. Only suggestion would be to have black out drapery as the light outside our room was very bright and shone through the curtains throughout the night.

This is a chic little motel in an awesome town. The bed was comfortable, the water was hot, the room was super clean and the staff was really nice. It was the best $100.00 that I have spent in a long time.

We were there on March 28th and were initially delighted when we checked into the room. Clean, eclectically furnished, and very comfortable beds. I got up at 6:30am for my shower and ran and ran the water waiting for it to heat up -- when the tub started to really fill, I turned if and tried running in the sink.... More

I am sorry you were so unhappy with your stay, but when I checked the hot water in your room, it took 1 minute and 42 seconds to heat up. I offered to show you and you declined. I know this isn't ideal and I was very apologetic. Also, my cell phone number is on the door and you are... More
