    This is a well done renovated Motel. The rooms have been updated a few years ago, but well maintained and very clean. Great staff very pleasant and helpful. Nice view of the Rock, and not to far of a walk or drive to the beach.

    We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
