This is a very quirky motel. Rooms are tiny, barely fitting a full size bed, however it has the basic amenities in the room. The bathroom needs updating but everything was clean. There were a few bottles of water included and a bottle of wine which was a nice touch. If you don’t mind a postage stamp sized room then this is a fine place to stay.

This was a great dog friendly place to stay. The owner was nice and left a gift bag for the dogs that was adorable. Really cute decor and right across from Morro harbor and the pier with a good view of the rock. You can walk all over from here and there are many good restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

Very nice staff. We were welcomed with a goody bag of locally made salt water taffy and a bottle of wine. Nice surprise! The room was small with very little shelving space for toiletries. Sink did not drain properly and toilet handle needed jiggling in order to have water stop running in tank. This hotel has a vibe of 1960's and Hippies which was rather interesting. Awesome view of Morro Rock. A little pricey for the accommodations, but fun none the less.
