We booked last-minute-ish for a trip on the GOR, and chose this property not so much for the price - which was excellent compared to most on the route, including private hostel rooms - as the availability, so I wasn't expecting much. However, it was clean, comfortable, and featured a lovely ocean view. Walking distance to a lovely rocky, tide-pooly beach for the kids. Helpful, kind staff. Probably priced like it is because it isn't in town, but hey, if you're driving the GOR you've got a car anyways.
