I found this gem through Trip Advisor. Reasonable rates - great location - well taken care. My husband and I stayed there for two nights. We had planned on watching the 4th round of the Pebble Beach Pro Am, but due to the 40 mile winds, it was postponed. The location of the motel is great - across the street...

We stayed at this facility at the end of May in 2008 and loved it. After reading different reviews from many websites, we made sure to request an upper back room and we were not dissapointed.

Dear sharc84, Thank you so much for the kind words. I agree with the “Too chilly to swim even when the pool is heated to 80 degrees year around” The children can swim in anything but most of us go for the hot tub in cooler temps.” I didn’t get to say bye to you folks, so I hope your...
