Ok, so my first review was not all that positive. But I came back for a second stay; honestly the price cannot be beat and the location is perfect. It has all the amenities, and I really enjoy visiting with the staff. The food is mediocre. The property has a restaurant, mini-mart and bar. The only thing is that the...

Stayed here 1 night. Room was clean. Nice view of the ocean. The heater wasn't working but they came to fix it promptly. Late that night we noticed a leak from the toilets water line but after driving 10+ hours that day we were too tired to do anything about it. Let the front desk know when we checked out...

Clean lodging with plenty of space close to Big Sur. Amenities match the lower pricepoint so were as expected. Bathrooms could use some updating (need extraction fan, better water pressure and draining), but everything was functional. Overall enjoyed our stay across the road from the beach.

Good location to relax after lots of miles along the west coast. The room were clean and the employees were very kind. The only problem was the slow wifi. Anyway over all good relationship quality - price!

On the road to Big Sur we rented a couple of rooms right next to each other on the second floor facing the ocean. Our desk clerk was very nice and gave us a good rate. They don't offer room service but you can order via phone and pick up in the restaurant.

This motel is welcoming and friendly. The rooms are not fancy, but roomy and comfortable. It is a quick trip to Hearst Castle and seeing the Elllllephant seal. Across the highway is the ocean. You can see it from the lodge. On the property is a pool, small gym, laundry facilities and a restaurant. There is alos a small comvenience...

Very comfortable - more like a motel - can see the ocean - across the street. Had everything you needed - fridge, coffee maker. Bed comfortable - although the walls are a little thin - so you can here the people move above you.

We stayed as a stop over on a trip from LA to San Francisco but wish it could have been longer! The staff were friendly at check in and The rooms were really nice and a decent size. We paid for a sea view which I could definitely hear, but given the time of year and our packed schedule it...

Convenient Location.... Restaurant was excellent - only issue was the room was a bit musty smelling, nothing serious, but you notice that when you walk in. Likely a result if the sea air that's constantly present. I'd stay there again.

They have remodeled the rooms since we were here the last time. The rooms are more up to date. They are furnished with refrigerators and coffee pots. Some rooms have microwaves but not all. This hotel is across the street from the ocean and very convenient to take a walk on the beach.
