“Cute and cozy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2007

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Palomar. It's a cute little motel only a couple blocks away from the ocean. It was very clean, quiet, and for the money, quite a good deal. This place reminded me of something from the 60's...had that nostalgic feel to it which added to the charm.
For something budget-friendly, I'd recommend the Palomar and would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — The quirky, cool feel of the motel
  • Disliked — a little small but sufficient for two people.
  • Stayed February 2007, travelled as a couple
