What a great little place in a laid-back, relaxing town! Our room was comfortable, quirky, and spotlessly clean; Rebecca and Rick are helpful, attentive hosts. We got a good night's sleep in the comfy bed and appreciated the free wifi. I had a little problem with the shower: I'm short and because the shower head is not adjustable I was...

Very good price for very cute motel in laid back beach town. Clean, nice proprietors, cute garden to relax in . Theme rooms make it. Mini Madonna Inn like low cost motel. Sometimes basic can be boring but they made it fun. Recommended!

Awe, "mini Madonna Inn," we love it! So glad you enjoy the decor; most of it comes from our guests! See you soon Rosie! Lovely to have had you.

My wife and I have been staying at the Seaside Motel for more than 30 years. We have lived out of the state for several years and recently moved back to California. We made a reservation at one of our favorite places in all of California to stay--Seaside Motel in Cayucos. We hoped that our charming little motel would be...

I can't really rate this charming hotel as "excellent" - it's a little cozy and worn for that - but certainly if you are going to the central coast for a quick getaway, this is your place! Value for money is 100%. Rooms are clean, Rebecca and Rick are super friendly, beds are comfortable, the shower is the best I...

This is the second year my BF & I have stayed here (also got the same room from our first trip, Tea for Two) and I must say I look forward to staying at the Seaside Motel time & again versus any other hotel in the area. The rooms make you feel like you're at home and it's a quick...

We had a wonderful stay in one of the kitchenette suites. Clean, quiet, relaxing, comfortable spot. We were traveling with our little 1.5 year old son and loved the simple charm of the property. Rebecca takes great pride in her garden and it was wonderful to sit out there and enjoy the great fall weather. Close to everything you'd want...

Along with my wife, this was the second time we visited Seaside from the UK. After last year's visit about the same time, I said we would never stay anywhere else in the area again, as long as the Seaside remained with Rebecca and Rick. That remains so. If you are attracted by a small, traditional motel business offering a...

I worked in the hotel industry on the Central Coast and my best friends still live there, when my girlfriend and I visit them this is our go to place.
