I've come up from LA to work at the Zoo now and then for the last 30 years. Hate to tell the people that don't like the place but it has been remodeled. But that was about 25 years ago and then again about 10 years ago. There was less rooms and more apartment like rooms instead of what they... More

Motel was fine although some problems with the toilet but we got moved to another room! I would recommend it if you're on a budget travelling with friends as it is close to the beach and beside the tram to city centre!As i said it done the job and i liked the seaside theme going on in the rooms!Ask for...

I have stayed here once before and it was ok. The place is very old and run down. I use the chain lock and put suitcases in front of the door to feel safe. I stayed here this second time because " The Great Highway Inn" was booked. In addition this is where my grandparents use to stay when my... More

Well, maybe I am just not "picky". This hotel looks really run down on the outside. I was pretty skeptical the first time we stayed there. The rooms are definately not "fancy" but have everything you need. We have stayed here with our family at least 5 times. We go once or twice a year. So there may be a... More

Many years ago I used to stay here on fairly regular basis. Some things never change...like a great location. Otherwise, since the place was taken over by a new owner, who doesn't seem the least bit interested in puting any money into the place it has deteriorated noticably. I just completed by most recent stay today. First when you check... More

I stayed in this place during the week of the forth of July. It is awful. Very dirty rooms floors have not been cleaned in what looks to be years. They are nice people who run the place, they even allow the patrons from the zoo to park in the lot on "free zoo day" they charge them $5.00 to... More

This is not a motel for the weak of heart. It is, in all senses, that sort of Raymond Chandler-esque "sleazy dive" that is only missing the gangsters and hard-boiled detectives. But it is a place to stay, reasonably priced, and no more outrageous than some that are far worse. My stay was shortly after the current owners took over,... More

You would do much better to sleep out on the sidewalk in front of this place than to pay money and check into one of their rooms. Forget the money part of it for a second...the sidewalk would be cleaner...no less noisy...and actually less depressing. The rooms are dingy and moldy and dank. The beds are squalid...hair and dried fluids... More

This motel is not for the 5 star set but if you want a relatively reasonably priced place to stay where you can look out of your window and see the Pacific Ocean then this is place fits the bill.

“If you have to stay here,choose a upstairs room so you can get some sleep,walls are to thin to be downstairs....hopefully that will help. Maybe take your own sheets and pillows too!”

“Recommend you request a room on the west side of the second floor on the south end. It should be quieter and sunnier in your room if you stay on the second floor. We were on the west side of the first floor and we could easily hear the footsteps of the folks staying in the room above us.”
