Safe and secure motel

The staff was very nice. the hotel was like stepping back in time.

Great hotel for reasonable price! On site laundry available and coffee/breakfast snacks in the morning, the beds were definitely better than other hotels in the area, and staff was very nice and helpful. Showers are equipped with shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers and towels were decent. Parking is a little tight for big trucks, but manageable. We’ll be back for sure!

The staff are very friendly & helpful. The facilities are exactly as described and are perfect for the price. I really liked the single level and parking just outside my room. It felt safe and was quiet enough.

Very clean, dark, quiet and all around nice! I liked the touch of the wireless charger built into the desk. It was more than we expected and a great price too. I would definitely stay there again!

Decent motel on the coast. Some stuff is dated like the carpets etc, but being on the coast the properties tend to take more of a beating. Like most people staying at the hotel the night we stayed, we were all there to go fishing the next morning. This hotel is leaps and bounds better than the motel 6 in town. We try to stay here when we can.

kStaff was nice, room was clean, quiet. Grounds needed tending--cig butts and some trash.

Room was less then squeaky clean. A little more time cleaning would’ve made our stay much more enjoyable. Nice gardens. Limited breakfast.

For an inexpensive motel its great, good people running it, beautiful garden.

Nothing fancy, but a fine place to lay your head for the night. My room was fairly outdated, but clean. Came with a small fridge and microwave. The staff was very nice and helpful.

the gardens and the peacefulness. close to restaurants and staff was freindly.

Clean and comfortable. Standard grab bag of items for breakfast.

Room was FILTHY on arrival. We had to wait one hour after arriving after 3 pm for them to finish cleaning, and even then it was filthy, with old food on stoven, black dirt in cupboards and on countertops, broken dirty ice cube trays and more. I took lots of photos and management did replace the ice trays, but it was a gross experience. No rent adjustment for the delays and room condition.

We were traveling with our dog so we were placed in a "pet room" Arrived at room to find door open, room turned upside down. Housekeeper comes out of a room a few doors down and says "He just put you in that room, didn't he?" She was clearly annoyed but said she would get another room ready for us "it only needs to be vacuumed" When the room was ready, she left the door open (we had keys to the other room) and disappeared quickly. I could hear her complaining loudly about it from 2 doors down. The first thing I noticed was the big stain right at the door. The second was the overwhelming smell of chemical cleaner. I would later find while walking around in only socks that the stain was still wet. The room was filthy. If you look at the photos, not only is the door dirty around the handle and jamb but even the facings of the door are gross. There were horizontal blinds on the windows and again you will see in the pictures that they are just disgusting and the cord to raise them was so gross I used a paper towel. I went two times to get the room key. The first time there was a long line of people and no employees in site. (5pm) The second I waited for a while and rang the bell twice before an employee wandered in and offered to find the manager for me. It's one thing for a room to need updating but this room was just disgusting and I would have left if it weren't prepaid. I'm sorry I didn't take more photos but my phone was full of vacation pics!

Nice hotel on the California 1. Easy access to other towns. Close to the harbor down the hill.

We got in town much earlier than expected. I called in and asked if we could check-in within the next 15-20 mins, which was about 2 hour prior to check-in time. He was very honest that he could not promise it, but would do his best to check the room. We we're fortunate enough to check-in early. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.
