“Relaxing ocean front resort & pet friendly”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We booked 3 nights at this resort and would have extended for more but were on a schedule. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was wonderful, great view, comfortable and the fireplace was a real plus. We had our Boston Terrier with us and he had a great time, lots of our dogs there. We will definitely return next year. On site restaurant was also excellent.

I just expected a motel- like atmosphere for our overnight stay to visit Hearst Castle the following morning. Had a very pleasant surprise to have an oceanfront room right on beach, fire pits right next to beach, great little restaurant and very friendly service! A real gem

This is a great stop-off if you're driving up or down the Pacific Coast highway. It's good-quality motel-like ambience, right between the main road and the sea. Our room had a side-on view of the wind-swept beach, easily accessible across a scrubby area euphemistically described by the receptionist as 'the parkland'. Very comfortable, but more expensive than our other hotels along the route. Pleasant hotel restaurant, and a store over the main road. Very handy for Hearst Castle (but you 'll need the car!)

Room Tip: Ask for top floor with a sea view

My wife and I have stayed here many times. It is right on the beach, not across a street from the beach. Rooms are nicely appointed and the staff is very helpful. If you stay on the second floor of "Kings Row" or the "Terrace" you can keep the patio doors open and let the sound and smell of the ocean lull you to sleep. Add the fact that this resort is incredibly dog friendly, you can't miss enjoying your stay here. Also, great for starting or ending a day in Big Sur or touring Hurst Castle.

Wow. This is such a nice place to stay. Located by the shore with an expansive area. Rooms are very clean and furnished appropriately. The largest security safe I have ever seen in a hotel. No Breakfast because there is a full service restaurant on the property. Ate our evening meal there the first night. Our waiter, Jorge, was the best waiter we have ever experienced. He has worked there for 30 years. There also is a housekeeper that has been there for 36 years. Speaks to the quality of this establishment and how they treat their employees. That translates to excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend. Staff excellent.

Hotel was on the beach, Walkable to the sand and water. Hotel had 3 fire pits for a very nice evening to meet other guest and listen to the waves. Room was very nice with a surprise after check in on first day. A bottle of champagne, which we drank. Just one of the better hotel stays we have had in a long time with a very good price. Will stay again.
