Beware, you get what you pay for.

Room did not have microwave or refrigerator and had a general appearance of not keeping up with maintenance issues. Water flow was almost non-existent in bathroom sink but could probably be remedied by cleaning filters and flushing pipes, not all necessarily due to the city's lack of pressure and water restrictions. TV channels and pools hours where not as stated on hotel info paper given. Breakfast could be purchased for additional $7 but opted out as it looked pretty chintzy. Other hotels comparable in price in the area would be a better choice.

Old fashioned stay.

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Pros. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Close to the beach but you have to cross the highway. Pool was nice and well used when I stayed there. Furniture was basic but okay. About 3 miles from Hearst Castle. Cons. Older motel, no frills. Internet is practically useless because it's slow. Some rooms have an ocean view...mine did not but I was okay with that because I paid a bargain rate. Bottom line. If you are staying one night this is a good motel. If you are staying a weekend I would suggest one of the more expensive lodges with direct beach access. If you are a complainer and picky, don't stay here, otherwise, this is a good old fashioned motel and worth the stay. BTW....no breakfast but you can buy a $7 coupon for a breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns at the restaurant that serves a couple of the hotels. It is walking distance.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Educate their staff.
The front desk is not helpful and friendly. In the 2 mins of checking in, I saw two very unhappy customers.

Handy to Hearst Castle

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Complete overhaul of decor and hot water supply.
Location: Hearst Castle just a few miles away
Bare minimum of service from moderately disinterested staff at the desk. Bed hard and uncomfortable. The heater worked well but hot water took nearly five minutes to get to the shower. Tired throughout.

Terrible terrible terrible....... First of, can't lock the connecting door to the next room. Told front office about the condition, the young receptionist,was clueless what I was telling her,,,,. Secondly, the room we moved to... There was no hot water.... Ran the water for a few minutes, hoping the water will get at least lukewarm, but not to avail. Walking out of the shower with a greatness of shivering, shaking violently, teeth chattering, bones chilling cold. The faucet at the sink barely spitting out water. Great job guys, we saved a lot of water. I am not sure what type of WiFi modem they're using, I guessed "Free" means free to try to login..... Didn't work. Need to say more... I don't need to... Will never ever recommend to anyone to stay at this place.
