I read the trip advisor reviews and for the price I thought it would be decent. It wasn't. They say their check in time is 3 but when we got there at 4, the room wasn't ready. The should have been out first clue. The room looked like it did on the internet but what you couldn't see was the...

Stayed here for one night travelling from San Francisco to LA. Very good value. Very clean but needs a bit of updating, new upholstery on chairs etc. Owners are very friendly. Free breakfast is a choice of breakfast cereals and muffins hot drinks and juices to collect from reception and take back to the room.

We are traveling north up the California coast from San Diego to WA state. We just needed a room for the night & this was the only one I could find. It is old & dated with a musty odor, but clean & fine for a stop over. The WiFi would not connect.

I stayed here w/ the Mrs. while going up and back from the Desert to Monterey. 3 nights total. The room is good enough but small, beds & bedding were fine. Watching the sunset from the balcony was priceless. My only complaint would be with the Owners, Super Customer Service, and Nice, but they really need to spend time walking...

My wife and I recently stayed here for three nights. The room was spacious, but not high end. Everything worked and it was clean. The "breakfast" isn't much. It would be nice if they offered some fresh fruit. Toaster waffles would also be a plus. Location just a few blocks from town.

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...
