Truly a bargain for what you get: The rooms are very spacious, clean, and memorable. This motel was built in 1957 from one redwood tree. This place will not blend into the haze that is Motel 6/Comfort Inn/La Quinta....et al. Offseason (March, 2009) a single cost us $55. Unlike what I read in other reviews, the bed was comfortable (firm).
There is nothing fancy about the place, and its amenities are limited (no fridge, microwave, etc.) but it is kind of fun, totally retro, clean, well run, and conveniently located. Coffee in the lobby in the AM comes from what appears to be a 1950s era silver coffee percolator. Also, covered parking is a plus if the weather should turn rainy. Personnel at the front desk are friendly and helpful. The recommendation for breakfast at the Good Harvest Cafe was a good tip.
