All outside entrances, small bathrooms that look like they were installed in the 1970s. Bed and pillows all right but not great. Poor sound proofing. Pressed "wood" which was to be used in the in-room fireplace didn't light when the suggested procedure to start fire was utilized. Went to enjoy the outside fires instead and were met by teenagers drinking...

Oceanfront room with balcony, fireplace, Keurig Coffemaker and free internet. They even had binoculars in the room for guests to use to spot ocean wildlife. Several lasrge firepits on the oceanfront lawn surrounded by chairs was a great way to watch the sunset over the ocean. Close to Hearst Castle. Wish they had an elevator.

I would have to say, this is the one of the, if not the best roadside Motel my wife & I have ever stayed in. First off, the price was comparable or slightly less than most motels in the area. It had a reasonably priced diner right next door. We ate there and it was great, and the price was...

“Amazing views of the ocean, second floor. I could leave my door open and listen to the ocean all night. So peaceful.”

“Ocean front room are only available with 1 king bed and. 2 person max but since the whole property is open to the ocean and in front of the beach you may not need to splurge for 'ocean front' if you are traveling with the family. Many basic rooms have a partial view anyway.”

“Room had a weird smell when you first walked in, but pretty much went away. Didn't care for the mold on the bathroom walls, but with being so close to the water maybe that is why.”
