“Nice Property and Good Price”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Stayed here one night while driving the California Coast. The Hotel was very nice and affordable. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Check in was easy and parking was right out front of the the room. Waterfront is not far away and walk able. Good restaurants in the area

You honestly can't beat this place for the price. We stayed here in the middle of January. Our stay was darn near perfect - the room was spacious, clean and freshly renovated. We were so pleased with our visit that we even stayed an extra night. The bed & pillows were comfy, the housekeeping staff was helpful & accommodating, they even tracked us down when we forgot an article of clothing in the room. The owner was cheerful, despite our VERY late check-in at 11:30pm. The road noise was un-noticeable during our visit - we didn't really have the windows open much however. Despite the hotel being completely booked, it was very quiet. The grounds were perfectly groomed, the pool looked enticing even in January! The location is surprisingly close to the beach - we could have walked. The fresh waffles were a big hit with the kids. We WILL be back and have already recommended this quaint little motel to our friends & family.

We stayed for 1 night on way to LA, great place to stop and break the journey, such a cute little town with a gorgeous seaside. The room was nice & spacious, the whole place is very clean & tidy. The smell in the reception office is a bit off putting so we decided against breakfast. We would return.

Very friendly owner, good location. Carpet in our room had some (old) stains but other than that the room was immaculate. I was worried about road noise being close to the freeway but it wasn't really a problem and I didn't need earplugs. Clean and well-maintained property. Everything worked as it was supposed to. Sometimes staying in independently owned motels can be chancy, but this one is the equal of any similar price range big chains, and better than most.

Stayed here for one night in Dec. 2013 with my 2 kids. Was pleasantly surprised by how clean and updated it was, considering it is a motel, not a hotel. The manager was very nice and friendly. Free wifi, free continental breakfast. Very close to the beach, and literally next to the 101 on-ramp. I would stay here again. It's nothing fancy, but it did have a flat-screen TV with plenty of cable channels, a large mini-fridge and microwave.

Overall, this little motel is a great deal. My girlfriend and I went for a quick weekend getaway for the weekend and only stayed one night. The location is great. We walked just about everywhere we wanted to go. The room was clean. The shower had great pressure and stayed hot for a long time. The owner checked us in and was super helpful. I would stay here again.

The only downside was the noise level. We could hear when the door closed to each room and heard the kids in the room next to us.
