This place is a bargain in this beautiful town. As long as you are not expecting anything but basic accommodations you won't be disappointed. Plenty of parking, just a block from the main street which has tons of restaurants. Breakfast is cold cereal and muffin pieces from Costco. The manager was friendly and check in and out was a breeze....

I would like to say something nice as the staff were very very nice but... The bed was really hard, the pillow was a bit like rolled up socks, the room was a good size and clean but very dated. It did have a Tv and fridge which was good and the wifi wasn't too bad. It was a little...

Where to start. We paid $145 for one night at this place. The only positive thing without question is that the check in person is extremely nice and polite. He really made us feel very welcome. However, that's where that train stops. From the non-existing parking spots, to the ultra dirty and micro small rooms to the ridiculous "breakfast" is...

Motel needs urgently some renovation and maintenance. Old furniture and appliances, very noisy bed, dirty air outlets, just to name a few. Breakfast was provided and consisted of muffins, cereal, juice and coffee but you had to go get it at the front desk and return to your room as they are not set up for anything else. Front desk...

We stayed here for one night on a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the guy working behind the desk (assuming was the owner) was really nice and was very helpful pointing us in the right direction for some dinner. He also informed us that we got a really cheap deal because we booked so early I think we...

Basic motel which might benefit from an upgrade and some TLC. Well situated in town with secure parking. All the basics provided but the breakfast was just too basic and we went to Frankie and Lola for breakfast which was perfect! Wifi was ok.

Great location! The front desk was fabulous - he went out of his way to accommodate us, was very friendly, and helped us out when we accidentally left something in our room as we left town. This is a very basic motel. We stayed one night. For what it is, it is very expensive. But, we booked last minute and...

My honest opinion ,as always, is different to most listed. The motel is ok and quite expensive . Only stayed one night so did not complain about having no hot water in hand basin. Bed was very noisy and room was old and in need of renovation as the rest of the motel . Location is good. The bathroom was...

Sandpipper Inn June 20-23, 2016 This is the place to stay when you want a good clean room where every thing works, it very quiet and if you have reached the level of maturity that a brand name is not important nor the unused amenities offered. The guests are quiet and respect the privacy of other guests. In our opinion...
