“OK for price but not recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2008

The property is in the perfect location - one block from the beach and about 2 blocks from the cool quiet and cozy community of downtown Cayucos. You get what you pay for at this motel. While the outside of the hotel is very clean and inviting; the rooms are very old and outdated. The TV was from the 80's and the bed was very old and uncomfortable. Beware, the walls are very thin; you can hear everything going on in the rooms adjacent to yours. I was woken up at 4am to people talking nextdoor and could hear someone snoring all night long both nights. Skip the complimentary continental breakfast - it's not worth your time. The management was courteous but it didn't make up for my lack of sleep both nights. If you have another option in the area for the same price, I'd recommend staying someplace else.

This little motel was adequate. It was clean, and the room I stayed in had a little kitchenette (not sure if all of them do). That was a pleasant surprise, because refrigerators and microwaves sure are handy appliances to have in your room. The furnishings were sparse -- there was no place to sit except at the vanity mirror/desk or on the bed itself. And the bed, well, I could feel and hear the springs underneath me. They definitely could do with new mattresses. And it was overpriced -- over $300 for a two-night stay. If the mattress was new and comfortable, and the price well under $100 a night, I'd consider staying there again.

This place is close to the beach and allowed dogs, so that was the primary reason for staying there. Overall, the property was clean and quiet, and without many amenities. Breakfast consisted of a jug of of Sunny D and grocery store cinnamon roles still in the pan. Our room may not have been thoroughly cleaned prior to our check in because my husband started sneezing immediately upon entering. The hotel seems to be needing repairs (part of our flooring in the 2nd bedroom was ripped up), but for the price, I think we got what we paid for.
