My wife and I have stayed here before, and I must admit that the Courtyard rooms (what people refer to as the "motel") are small. They are comfortable....and yes, they are located near Highway 101.
There was no noise issue from our room (and I thought there might be because we were very close to the highway).
I do like the food--served hot and fresh. I especially like the hot apple cider in the lobby (think "drinkable apple pie"). I also liked the addition of the "wellness" spa where my wife and I got 55minute massages. The price for this service is very reasonable, and the person who worked on us was very good.
My only complaint is the hike in price: The last time I stayed here (same time of year), the same room was $99/night. Rooms are small, but you get a fireplace, room service, and now a massage. That would be a steal.
But...the price this time was 165/night...a little pricey. Now, maybe this is because of location (near downtown/Hearst Castle/Cambria etc.), but still...we are not talking about staying in the main part of the Inn.
It wasn't a bad experience...just a little more expensive. Try booking through one of the online services and possibly getting a lower rate.
