We stayed here while visiting the Hearst Castle and found a very good rate online. The two rooms we had were recently updated including new carpets, bedding and nice tile bathrooms. We had king size beds and could see the ocean from our second story rooms. Excellent value for what we paid.

We selected this hotel due to its close proximity to Hearst Castle and also the price. It was the only time on our trip that we had not consulted trip advisor and they only night we paid so little. The women who met us to check us in was rude, she couldn't even manage a please or thank you. The room was ok, certainly large enough but very cheaply kitted out. View of the beach blocked by buildings. Breakfast in the lobby... what a shambles. No room to move, and the tables and chairs set up outside were all wet so you couldn't sit down. No attempt made by hotel staff to rectify this for the guests. So glad we only paid about $70 for this place. Not worth a cent more.

We selected this hotel due to its closeness to Heart Castle and because we were looking to control our expenses a bit. It's right off the highway. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The "ocean view" was blocked by other buildings, but you can walk down to the beach. The bathroom was clean, there was flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, small fridge, etc. We didn't use the pool or take advantage of the free breakfast. The place could definitely use some upgrades and remodeling. It has no "curb appeal" and could definitely use some landscaping. Room décor was outdated. We were mainly looking for a good night's sleep and we definitely got it.

Room Tip: Ask if the room has an unobstructed ocean view. You could only see a small sliver of the beach from...

I read about this motel on Trip Advisor and booked it the afternoon of our stay. We had originally planned to drive to Santa Barbara, but decided to visit Hearst Castle instead. The motel has a partial view of the ocean and is about 3 miles from the castle entrance. It was clean, had wifi, and breakfast was included. We were very pleased, especially because it was only $70. I recommend this spot!

We stayed 4 nights and were completely satisfied with our stay. Great view, short walk to the beach and close to the local attractions. The room was large and clean with everything we needed. When there were people in the next room, you could hear them, but we didn't really have an issue with noise, as most guests seemed to settle down early and leave very early in the morning. The rate was very affordable for such a nice location. We would stay here again when in the area.

Room Tip: We paid a bit extra for ocean view and it was certainly worth it.

Great value stay close to many attractions including Cambria and Moonstone Beach, Hearst Castle, elephant seals and the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse. However, with a cheap rate came very cheap beds that were so uncomfortable that it was difficult to sleep. The rest of the room and amenities were decent, although several hairs in the bathtub and on the shower curtain did make me twinge.
But overall, if you need a cheap one night stay in the area, it'll do your job.

This place has nothing to blame if you need a stop and go in the area. Close to Hearst castle and perfect if you need a rest to continue travelling from San Francisco to LA or vice versa. If you do not have any important need try it and you will be satisfied. Breakfast is easy.
