The price is fair but the staff are a joke. The Hispanic lady that helped me was absolutely clueless. She double charged me for the room, and here we are 3 weeks later, and they still have not credited back to my card. I called and asked to speak to a manager and presumably "Lupita" said that the manager would... More

The accommodations are adequate. Clean, No frills, but that is fine. What ISN'T fine is the total lack of organization and communication between staff--e.g., televisions were being 'updated', but only the previous shift knew how to make the new system work; or, not being able to find a reservation made on Expedia, although it was confirmed; not able to find...

This is not a fancy motel, rather a fairly basic ordinary accommodation. However, it has been not just maintained but made quite comfortable. Beds are new, good support, lots of pillows, linens sparkly clean. An included breakfast was decent: omelet with cheese, fresh fruit, sausage, waffles.... More than enough to get you started on your day. Staff very pleasant and... More

This is probably the least expensive option especially if you have a dog. It was not the street noise, but a lot of truck and traffic in the motel lot all night. It is true that there are no washcloths as noted in another review. The place is older and located near 92 and Highway 1. We had a first... More

If you use a wash cloth when you bathe, you'll have to BRING YOUR OWN at this place because they don't supply them. In all our years of staying at motels, this was a first. This is an older motel but still clean. We had an upstairs two-double-bed cramped room with fridge/freezer, TV, microwave and the usual furniture. WIFI and... More

Overall, very reasonable. Quiet room, 2nd floor. No noise from the neighbors. Fair value for the price. Front desk staff very accommodating; we got to know them well, for the only small negative was that our swipe key for the room door failed a couple of times each day. The included breakfast was excellent value and more in line with... More

We made a last minute reservation during Memorial Day weekend. The place was super easy to find, the room was adequate, nothing fancy, but then again, neither was the price. Free breakfast in the morning. The rooms were a little noisy, but nothing too terrible. We could hear some people outside in the evening and then again in the morning.... More

Drove too far, last minute choice of the desperate. The place was noisy with a gaggle of students over spring break, asked for a quieter and larger room. Were taken to the far end, and as we were unloading our car the canine units started showing up discreetly, waiting under the stairs outside of our room, about 8 sheriffs showed... More

October of 2014 we made a trip up the PCH and spent a night here at this motel. The front desk girl, sorry don't remember her name, was awesome! Very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quiet even with the highway right outside. Breakfast was great. I'd definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
