    This hotel is not worth the high price. The location is not good, It's on the north end of town away from restaurants and shopping. It is right on the highway, so the view is not attractive. No air conditioning. I will not stay here...More

    We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
