8/10 Good


Liked: Cleanliness
The room was fine. Not much to say about it other than it was clean. It smelt of industrial cleaning products. The bed was comfortable for a one night stay and the bedding was relatively clean. It had definitely been washed. The motel was very quiet, maybe only two other rooms in use so no noise from elsewhere. It was cold but there was an air heater. The air heater was very loud, so used sparingly. Good access to Pismo and the highway so convenient. Wouldn't want to stay beyond a night but it did well for our needs

The motel was great. We stayed here for one night on our way up to SF to visit our son. It was clean, quiet, beds were comfy. I think it was the owner of the motel he was very nice and helpful. They also give a nice little dog bone with poop bags if you staying with a pet. Also a great location, close to everything and you can walk to the pier, shopping and food. Will stay here again.

It wasn’t a bad for the price the hot water in the shower took a real long time to get hot but it got there. The windows definitively need black out drapes the wood shutters allow too much light in when people want to sleep in. Other than that it was not bad.

The owner, i guess who he was, was nice. We arrived at 2, check in not till 4. He still gave us our room. Everything was ok, except for the lighting. When i woke up at 1:30am. I thought it was daylight already. They have shutters that dont close up all the way. Kindly a bright sleep. Maybe install some curtains to help block out the light.
