    Good location, nice size rooms which are well equipped.

    Venetians blinds only in the room which do not keep out light adequately.

    Managers were very nice and accomodating. Room was clean and freshly painted. Small, quaint property. Perfect place to go after a day at the beach.

    The price. We were able to change rooms after the first night.

    Not all of the rooms have been remodeled, we were shown a room that was decent then upon booking we were given another room that would be classified as a dive.

    They were very accommodating in connecting the VCR. They brought us extra towels upon request and quickly. It was quiet. It was very clean. The staff were helpful and nice. It was nice to have the refrigerator and microwave in the room.

    It would have been nice to have had a closet area and something in the bathroom to set clothing on. It would also be nice to have access in the room to a DVD player.

    Fabulous

    The room we stayed in was very small, but clean. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just a place to rest, so it suited our needs fine. Staff was very friendly to us as well. It was a pet friendly motel too, with a small charge per night for our dogs. So, if you're looking for luxury or above average accommodations, this motel isn't for you, but if you need a place to crash after a day at the beach or sightseeing, this will work.

    The bed in our room wasn't very comfortable. Other than that, no complaints since it fit our needs.

    Good

    The location...it was conveniently located just down the street from where my daughter lives.

    We had trouble with the hot water in the shower the first morning...but after bringing it to the attention of the manager, it worked the next day. There was no coffee available in our room...although there was a coffee maker. We were told there was coffee in the front lobby...but at 9:00 am, it still hadn't been made. As we were leaving, I asked for another printout of my charges as I had misplaced the original sheet. I was told there was no way she could print another one. I got the feeling the management wasn't all that informed on how to run the motel.

    The hotel was just up from the beach and it is right next to alot restraunts.

    It does take awhile to get the hot water to come out, but when it did...THE Water was hot !

    This hotel is old but reasonably well kept. For a solo traveller it was a fun, quaint little place to rest after spending the day exploring the local areas. The management was friendly and helpful.

    The hotel is just across the road from highway 101 so there is a bit of traffic noise...but it's not so bad as to ruin your trip.

    the size, and the kitchenette would have been nice if we needed it.

    unfortunately there weren't any extra blankets in the rooms, and it was hard to get anyone late at night to give us any. we were unable to get a hold of the person at the front desk

    My wife liked it alot, small, cozy, romantic!

    When we first opened the door the room had been closed up all day and the room smelled!

    Exceptional

    I can absolutely recommend this hotel! We booked the room online and came the whole way down from San Francisco arriving very late in the night. One call at the reception was enough and the hotel manager waited for us to give us the keys. It’s a very nice and friendly place.
