This was our first motel stop on our Highway 1 road trip.
First things first. If arriving courtesy of a sat nav, it will direct you past the motel and onto a side road which takes you round the back to the rear entrance, because for some reason you can't turn left off Abrego Street into the motel car park.
The receptionists were friendly and helpful. We checked into our room which was small but clean and well appointed. The bed was comfy.
However, the motel is on the edge of town and I wouldn't recommend that you walk to the Cannery from there as you may become lost. We decided to call for a taxi. We cannot comment on the evening meals as we didn't eat there, but stopping at the bar before 9 on our return (beer and wine only btw), there was no one else there and the kitchen closed early.
Breakfast was busier and the food was good with a reasonable choice.
It was popular judging by the car park being full.
The motel is ok, but if you are expecting it to be close to the Cannery it may disappoint. On a related note, we could not find a single taxi for the return journey. However there is a free trolley bus which goes within a couple of blocks walk. Just ask to be dropped off as close to the motel as possible. Don't worry if you think that you are getting lost on the bus as it does meander before arriving at the stop you need. It takes 10-15 minutes to get there.
